from this angle the castle does look amazing and like it's very far away and that's why it's so tiny. How does it look in person?

You mean they soft opened the bathrooms and didn't announce anything. Typical Disney.

Soft opening

So exciting! I wish I was there, but I have to wait two more weeks! I was selfishly hoping the VLM wouldn't soft-open until I am there the week of Halloween.

Another site, WDW Magic has tons of pics and a complete ride through of Little Mermaid. Beware if you don't want to see until you are there!

The forced perspective in this new area is amazing. Seeing that castle from high up you would never think it would look correct from the ground.

I am not seeing either (access denied). Only can see Brenna's.

Tribute to Gaston

An extravagantly generous gift to the humble people of my village.

From me, Gaston.
That's fabulous!

the most surprising thing about all this new information to me is that Berlioz is a 'she'. Why did I always think you were a guy?

I am so glad I am not the only one who was surprised by that! I always thought she was a he also! Just goes to show you how much message board can anonymize people.

I did too, until I started following her on FB and saw her in all of the pictures. I think it is the screenname and picture, since Berlioz is a boy kitty in the movie. Then again, I had a litter of kittens I was fostering in July that I was told were all males, so I named them O'Malley, Berlioz and Toulouse, only to find out they were all female. I kept their names though

I was in HS while there were soft openings for Star Tours. It would be open for a while and then closed. You never knew what to expect. You could be in line and told the ride was closed and that you needed to leave. I would think rides could work like this.

Saying that, I would not think they would close off the entire area once they have it opened, but the rides may open or closed at any time.
We will be there the week between AP Preview weekends (which we can't do because I am the only AP holder) and the day after DVC Previews (rats!)
So here's my theory (wish/prayer/hope) about soft opening.
Hopefully once they open for the previews they have hired and employed a full-time staff that they will just need to keep working during the days in between the preview days (the days I will be there!). Does it make any sense that they will not keep everyone working once they are all up and running? I'm hoping not!!

And Thanks Berlioz et al for all the pics and updates - keep them coming everyone!!! We are soooo excited!!

And fingers, toes and eyes all crossed that the new area will be open for MVMCP!!
