My family will be going to Disney world in late August. I know the mine coaster will not be completed, but of the two other projects left (Rapunzel and Princess Fairytale Hall), will either of these be completed. If someone could answer my question it would be much appreciated. Thanks

Tough to tell. PFT has only been nebulously announced to open in 2013, and I think most estimates have that late in the year. The Rapunzel thing has had no announced opening date and is only officially supposed to be...wait for it...restrooms.

But one could talk in a relatively normal voice and not have to talk loud above the din. The other two dining areas were equally low on noise.

I am standing in line for ETWB. I can tell this is slow moving on a good day. But they are testing fp plus and i see all those folks feeding in. So the slow standby line is that much slower. So frustrating.

Hang in there, and I hope you're having a good trip!

I have to agree. It was good! The noise level wasn't too bad either.

I apologize if this has already been asked, but does anyone know if Enchanted Tales with Belle is open on EMH mornings?? My family and I will be there at 7am on 12/26, and would like to get this out of the way immediately, if at all possible!

LOL - so there's a bunch of really confusing news for you!

My GUESS (based on nothing) is that we'll see Cindy, Aurora, Rapunzel, and Snow. My assumption is that Tiana and Jasmine will continue in their current locations.
I agree on everything you just said, Berlioz, except I think that Snow White will appear in the Dwarfs Mine Train area when it opens and that there is still probably a VERY top-secret plan for a new location for Rapunzel in the new Tangled-themed area between Peter Pan and Small World.

So with Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Tiana, Snow White and Rapunzel ruled out, my current personal guesses as to who will be in PFTH are Cinderella, Aurora, Mulan and Pocahontas, since those are the only 4 princesses remaining out of the 10 official ones (and since there will supposedly be 4 greeting rooms in the Hall).

After you click thumbnails to enlarge, click again (a second time) for an even large, more detailed view.

Went to the movies Friday night to see Lincoln. In the time waiting for the movie to start, saw a commercial for the new Fantasyland. First time I paid attention to a commercial ;-)
