While this is technically true, barring any unforeseen problems, everything SHOULD be open normally starting Nov. 19th. Which will lessen the crowds from what you might expect.

From your lips to Walt ears.

We're there the 7th...I'm hoping it's not as much of a zoo as I'm anticipating it will be.

New Video promoting the New Fantasyland... but I have to admit, it could also double as a promo for the TV show Once Upon a Time:

Finding New Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom

Yup, links right back to (and is obviously related to) that "contest-y" type page discovered awhile back (last week, some time?).

Be interesting to see what they do with it.

It'll also be interesting to see if they DO advertise it during the "Once Upon a Time" Premier (Sept 30th, I think). Seems like a no brainer in "synergy", all things considered.

OK, more details.

We've all been opining for "grey stuff" around the Belle's Village, somewhere.

What ARE those pictures of and what IS that grey stuff? Just for the Halloween party?

The twitter account is implying that it's the dessert for the quick service meal at Be Out Guest. No idea what it actually tastes like though.

I think the people who are saying not to worry about the LM's wait are being a tad premature. Do I think it'll ever get over an hour or so? Probably not unless it's peak season.... but the Seas with Nemo and Friends when it first opened had a 35 min wait the first I went on it (because I distinctly remember saying, I waited 35 mins for that....) Especially in the beginning, LM might have a larger wait than people expect...

It will certainly see longer waits when it first opens than weeks or months later. But the very nature of the ride--a people-eating omnimover--means it has an inherent high capacity and will likely never see the typically long waits at TSM or Pan.

.....Unless Disney completely destroys the inherent high capacity of an omnimover by making it a fastpass+ attraction and putting most of that capacity into the Fastpass system resulting in hour long standby waits.

............ which is a risk with any ride at WDW right now. It seems like every ride could be FP by the time they are done. Much to the detriment of all involved I believe.

Well, that wouldn't really be "destroying the inherent high capacity" of the ride. It would be using the high capacity for FP riders rather than SB riders. Still the same number of people riding in a day.
