I think the new Fantasyland is bittersweet. I'll miss some of the old things like Mickey's Toon Town Fair and Storytime with Belle but the new things that are coming do sound pretty cool. Now I really want to get back there when the new stuff opens!

We had a party of 16 in our photo with Donald at Tusker House. Since we usually have at least 9 in our party, every family picture is a large group. Every photographer has been very accommodating.

Are those poles steel? Do they really plan to leave those exposed right in the middle of a walkway? I like the way it looks, but at the same time I think more can be done with it.

Enchanted Tales is being classified as an Attraction, not the traditional meet and greet, the entire thing is timed and planned; so no, I would not count on any group photos.

Each child that wants a photo should get an enchanted object to be apart of the show; Belle takes an individual photo with each object performer (and a dual photo with the guards) then she flees away. There is no queue line, no one on one conversations, and no autographs.

Beast on the other hand is working a little differently; my guess is that big group photos will be fine. The more you add, the smaller everyone will be in the portrait.

Has there been any speculation as to when in 2014 the mine train might open? DH and I are planning our next big trip and while we'd like ti do another September trip, we could push it to the Christmas time period if needed.

Most, if not all, predictions I've seen have stated "early 2014". September should be fine then.

YMMV.

Disney's web site now says that Pete's Silly Sideshow will open mid-October.

http://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/p...ctober.851491/

There have also been rumors that it will soft open this coming weekend which would be in line with an official opening in mid-October.

I also saw it reported on another site that the walls are already down around Pete's and the yellow tent and everything is just blocked off with portable shrubs. No pictures yet.

I've updated the first post to indicate an October opening for PSS.

WDW Magic posted photos of an exposed fence connecting Storybook to Tomorrowland:

Pete's will open Sunday as many character moves take place. Belle will leave TST when her new experience formally opens. Ariel will begin meets in fins mid to late October.

Are they saying where Ariel will be meeting? Will they have the Little Mermaid area open at that time for the meet and greet?

Ariel will be meeting near the front of the attraction. I would assume her M&G will go into soft opening the same time as the Scuttle's Hunt and Journey.

Oh, I had given up hope that any more of the new Fantasyland would be open for our trip Oct. 14-19! Now it looks like we *might* be able to see most of Storybook Circus and *maybe* (fingers crossed!) even get a glimpse of LM!

Barnstormer FP? That's new, right? Anyone know when this will start?
