But they could do like they did back in the 90's and make the train go back and forth between 2 stations instead of doing the whole loop! They did that when they built Splash Mt, the train went backwards to Toontown, then back forwards to Main St. So just by them saying that the train won't close means nothing, they know how to work it out.

Here is a clip - its later in the clip that it shows how the train went backwards--http://vimeo.com/4667463 I like to watch it for the song in 1990, that was my first trip and by 1991 when the train went backwards and they took away the song, it totally bummed us out!!

I wonder with the new mermaid and Beast area. What will happen with the other shows already in the studios. I know the new beast castle is only food but its unlike disney to double up on the same theme. Otherwise they could have kept snow white. It would be nice to see new shows in the 2 studio venues thats for sure. Just sayin.

I would hate for those two shows to go. They are very good. I doubt they are though. They just recently held auditions for Ariel, Belle, Gaston, and Beauty and the Beast dancers.

How about add something that has to do with Sleeping Beauty and take away the BatB or LTM show.

Is Fantasyland going to be a complete mess by next fall? How are they going to do all this stuff without making what's there inaccessible?

The work isn't here-and-there. Rather, what's going to be open is basically the attractions on the southern rim of Fantasyland, so accessibility shouldn't be a problem.

Thats right. I forgot about that one. Man I hope they arent starting a trend. They have so many great characters I would hate to see us miss out on one theme because they have doubled up on to many.

Yup. From the sound of the "changes" the only thing affecting the current Fantasyland would be closing Snow White and retheming the area to the new Princess Hall. All of that will take place behind closed doors, just like the refurb at Expo Hall. If anything, I can assume that if they *did* have to do things around the existing FL area, they'd build it in pieces and move it in overnight, just like they did with Cindy's castle.

I'm not sure they have an issue with "doubling up" when it reaches more than one park. I think the issue they have with Snow White having two attractions is that both would be located in FL in MK. And I'll also guess they feel the need to put the current SWSA space to better use as part of the FLE.

Has there been any announcement to where Mickey and Minnie will be? What will they do with the blank space where Dumbo was?

Will there be any play area for little ones. We are really sad to not have a place to let little kids blow off steam. No Donald duck area and no pooh area.

The mice has Exposition Hall as their new home. With all the work they've done, I bet they don't move. I'm sure Dumbo will get a nice new seating area.

The Pooh queue replaced the playful spot. I bet anything there will be new unintended play spots in the expansion area.

That's where the dwarf coaster will be located, along with the regular walk ways.

But doesn't it bother anyone that there is ANOTHER mine coaster in MK? I wish it was a Sleeping Beauty coaster/dark ride mix. Because honestly they have big thunder as a runaway mine train and EE at DAK is basically a mine coaster- why do we need a third one? I'm surprised that the imagineers haven't brought that up...

Because Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid both have a LOT more music in them than Sleeping Beauty does. That is the reason they were chosen for these shows is because of the songs, imo. The only real memorable song from Sleeping Beauty is Once Upon A Dream.

I wondered this too. Big Thunder Mountain being the most like this and its in the same park. I do think they should do something for Sleeping Beauty. There are no attractions at any of the parks to represent Aurora.
