Journey is Journey of the Little Mermaid--the LM-themed dark ride. But I'm wondering about Scuttle's Hunt myself!

Big Top Souvenirs in the Disney Blog. Cool Pictures. It states it's going to open on Sunday. Looks awesome.

Does anyone think that might be an animatronic Scuttle, like Lumiere at Maurice's or even Mr Potato Head at Buzz Lightyear? Or am I in my own little fantasyland?

And many more today.....

Great aerial views..........

http://www.wdwmagic.com/attractions/...antasyland.htm

And Beast's castle...

http://www.wdwmagic.com/attractions/...9;s-castle.htm

ETA...Once you have clicked on the thumbnails to enlarge, you can further enlarge a lot with an additional click on the now enlarged photo.

Also, in first photo (especially if you double enlarge) it is amazing to see how tiny Beast's castle actually is, sitting on top of what I presume to be the M/G building or restaurant building, but with the forced perspective, making it look huge. And with the last photo (again, with the double enlargement) a super overview of the transformation where the old Skyway was located.

Big Top is open - I've updated the first post.

Here are just a couple photos I took this afternoon:

A circle carpet circuled the outside of the tent with a fun design on the inside, we're thinking it's a giant trampoline design



The Merchandise checkout points were designed like animal circus train cars, we saw Hippos, Giraffes, Camels, and Monkeys



This Cast Member is pin trading out of a cute popcorn box



Inside the tent



The mystery tent (originally thought to serve food), is finally open...



It houses FPs for Dumbo & Barnstormer, and has a shady place to sit

This area is so rich with detail!! I have to admit I wasn't all for a circus themed area but now I love it and can't wait to see it in November! I am so happy this is opening before my trip!

the pin trading with the popcorn thing is soo cute!

Great pictures, all!

On the signage for Pete's Silly Sideshow, it looks like there are separate lines for Minnie/Daisy and for Goofy/Donald. Does it say "Minnie AND Daisy" / "Goofy AND Donald" or is the word OR? In other words is it going to be luck of the draw which one(s) you meet, or will you see both characters for the line you get in?

It's an "AND," so you'll get to see 2, depending on which line you get into!
