Princess M&G - "Cinderella, Aurora, Rapunzel, Snow White and Tiana will alternate in the new Princess Fairytale Hall."

Does this mean that Naveen will no longer be a regular?
Will Belle be meeting in the Princess M&G or no? If not, then any idea where?
Also - will Merida become a regular or not?

And... "alternate"... does that mean it will be like 3 or 4 at a time then some switch? Grrr.

I read the Beast is no longer at Epcot with Belle. Can he only be seen at BOG for dinner?

For most of these questions, stay tuned.

For now, I'm assuming Belle will not be at Princess Fairytale Hall.

Beast can only be seen at BOG for dinner.

When I do my ADRs, I'm going to be tempted to do BOG for dinner just for the Beast.

They are right beside the Winnie the Pooh ones at Philharmiagic.

The Mine Coaster will have swaying side-to-side cars, right?

Never seen this!

Do you think two dwarfs will be m&g? Or any of them?

I don't see how this would be possible on a tracked ride. I suppose you'll be able to sit people side by side in them, a la Big Thunder Mountain, but I don't see how the cars would sway.

That kind of movement just isn't possible (at least not safely) on a ride with the track on the bottom. Maybe the video shows some swaying in it, but there's no way the reality could be like that unless you literally go off-rail.

The cars on the 7DMC are indeed supposed to sway back and forth on an axis.

Yeah, I didn't know the term for whatever movement it may be, but it seems pretty snazzy. Sorry to confuse you!

How? Is the track supposed to move somehow?

I guess there's a reason it's taking so long to build, because I'm dumbfounded as to how they'd achieve that, safely, on a tracked ride.

One way, and I wouldn't recommend it because of the engineering hassles, lack of safety and cost, would be at some point to switch from 2 bottom rails (which do not permit swaying without a derailment) to a single top rail (which would permit swaying). It's hard for me to imagine they'd consider doing this, though. But if accomplished, it would definitely be an engineering marvel.

There was a video on it a while back. It seems the car was sort of a swing on a track. As you move along the track, the car stays firmly attached to the rail, but the swinging action kicks in and it probably feels like it's tipping off the track. It really looks pretty cool.
