Rapunzel's tower at MK

Apologize if this has been answered, I searched the forums but couldn't find anything...

What is going to be in the Rapunzel tower/village being built at MK? Is it a m&g or a ride? We just returned and my Rapunzel loving DD4 was so disappointed that she couldn't go climb the tower. Lol.

Just curious.

I wish I was joking... it's going to be a bathroom.

There are rumors here that it looks so good that they may add a M&G as well, but there are no plans at this point.

The above is true...it's going to be a restroom "complex" for that area. The current restrooms behind Peter Pan are going to be taken out and the Peter Pan queue extended (and probably "interactive")

Haven't heard anything about a meet and greet going in there.

This seems so silly to have the tower as part of the bathroom area? Why not have the Tower behind a Rapunzel M&G area?

Omg really? That's the worst news ever. I completely thought it was at least going to be a m&g. How disappointing

is rapunzel going to be a bathroom attendant? if so, i can't wait to see all of the threads on proper tipping etiquette for her letting you wipe your hands on her hair.

One would assume if they did add a M&G, which at this point is purely speculation on a few posters' parts, myself included, it would be off to the side and not in or at the entrance to the bathrooms.

That being said, $3.50 seems proper for getting to use Rapunzel's hair as a paper towel.

Exclamation

It was confirmed in October by Imagineer Chris Beatty that there will be no M&G in the old Skyway area (New Tangled Bathrooms)


From the October 15, 2012 Live chat on the Disney Parks Blog with Imagineer Chris Beatty...


Jenn Fickley-Baker:
We've also received several questions about construction going on elsewhere in Fantasyland, in the area where the old Skyway attraction was. What can you tell us about this area?

Chris Beatty:
Not only have we looked at adding new guests experiences to the New Fantasyland, but we looked at opportunities to enhance guest comfort. Many of you are curious to know will there be a character meet-and-greet in this area, but at this moment there are no plans.

Can you imagine the smell? Disney restrooms always smell rank and chemical like.

With all the detail Disney puts in everything they do, I can imagine that instead of automatic flushing, you'll have to pull a braid to flush the toilet!
