There was supposed to be a Pixie Hollow, but no Wonderland.

Tangled Area

Anyone know if the Tangled area will be done by March 1? A little off topic, what about splash mountain? My son's third time in Disney and has never been on it. The first time he was too short, the second it was closed due to rain.

I wish they did an Alice in Wonderland area! But it is of course all about flogging the new films these days, shame

I'd also like to know what will be open in August, that's my next trip!

Don't know about Tangles, but Splash is typically only down in Jan and beginning of Feb. can't control the rain though!

I really hope it's not roulette style.
That would be just cruel.
There have been several reports of CM's directly discouraging adults from participating. One report claimed that their CM specifically asked if any "children" wanted a part, therefore entirely bypassing any adults who wanted to participate

I haven't seen a single date attached to the Tangled Princess and the Pee experience, so no idea.

Splash is supposed to reopen in mid- to late-March.

Hmm that's odd and unfortunate. My friend and I went mid December, I'm 19 and my friend is 18, and I got picked to be a soldier but my friend wasn't hand selected for anything. However, when the cast member asked if anyone else wanted a part they gave my friend one. While 18 isn't exactly an "adult", they didn't care about it. So once again, like most of things with this attraction, it seems to depend on the cast members working it.

The area between IaSW and HM (old Fantasyland Skyway station) under refurb for a while now, known to be restrooms and better access between FL and LS and rumored to include charging stations and/or a Rapunzel M&G.

The whole area has a strong Tangled theme, including her tower.

Yes I saw they were working there but no sign so I just went on. I really need to learn to slow down at DW and be more observant, lol. My DD is 22 now but we watched Tangled twice over Christmas break so I'm excited and I know she will be too! Thanks for the info.

I went the beginning of December and the CM specifically asked if there were any CHILDREN who wanted a part that hadn't gotten one. One child raised their hand and she gave them a character and then she ushered everyone in the next room, never asking if anyone else wanted one.

It could certainly just be that it does depend on the CM working that room.

I hope it was just one CM. It would be a shame to exclude the adults who travel without kids and are children at heart all their own.
