I don't think it will creep in elsewhere...I think this will be part of the draw long-term and how one decides between CRT and BOG...a character experience or a dining experience. I also think it is unlikely people will be getting drunk on beer an wine over an hour dinner...the beer is not the bud light six pack generation...so I am not seeing a drinking around the work scenario.

Big thumbs up from me!

And the food shots on the blog look divine!


I was thrilled with the menu when it was released, and I'm even more excited now that I see the gorgeous pictures!

As others have stated, BOG is obviously not the kind of atmosphere where people will expect to be sloshed and acting like fools. When you go to a nice restaurant in your own town, you don't worry about that, right? I don't see that this experience will make a significant change to the overall MK atmosphere. Not that you won't get the random overly tipsy person on occasion, but that can already happen. There's absolutely nothing stopping someone who got drunk at Epcot from hopping over to MK. Yet, it rarely happens.

I have experienced, once, an obnoxious group of people drinking around the world at Epcot. But that wasn't the norm at all, and Epcot provides the atmosphere in which one can wander around "sampling" lots of different drinks.

Prices are on this menu, posted earlier in the thread. It is only the adult menu though. http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/med...enu-dinner.pdf

Enchanted Tales with Belle

This past Friday we were in Fantasyland just to see the new catsle walls and noticed an empty construction door. As we got closer, we were asked if we had about 45 - 60 minutes to try an new attraction which we of course said yes to. We then got to see the Enchanted Tales with Belle attraction. The line was cut off maybe 5-10 minutes behind us so we were lucky to be just passing by at the right time.

It is very well done and a great way to do a meet and greeet. The special effects with the mirror and animatronics are excellent. While it was clear it was a trial, since the CM in the first room flubbed over her lines a few times, we were glad to have the chance to do this attraction. We are not generally meet and greet people but wanted to see this at least once and now it's one less thing to do during the December trip.

I have some pictures from my iphone so not the best quality.

Oooohhh, so Im thinking this is actually more of a meet and greet than an actual attraction (like something you would ride on). Is that correct?

Thanks,

Karen

Doesn't sound like it, much the reverse. More of an attraction than a M&G, since photos so far are limited to show participants and no autographs.

Maybe the best comparison might be some of the shows available around the parks..... such as Indy, or american idol, or the Backstage tour pre-show...etc.

You get to watch a show, and audience members are picked to help participate within the show.

Biggest difference would be audience size, show length, and percentage of participating guests...

Thanks mesaboy2, thats what I was hoping for (an attraction that is as opposed to a M&G).
My 3 young grandsons would be far more in agreement with going on "a ride" than they would to be standing on a line to get Belles autograph.

Well, as I assume you realize, there are no ride elements. Your three GSs might feel ripped off if you sell it to them that way.

Yes they are going to bring in millions of cubic yards of fill to make "real" mountains in the middle of Florida.
