The new slide, not the Aqua Dunk is for everyone. All sizes, all ages.

To remind everyone to tip?
If you read between the lines it says it's for families. Just kidding.
It lists the slide attendant in the tips now. Kidding again.

Come on, give the old man a break.

I fixed link. Thanks for alerting me to the bad link.

'Almost' all sizes:

The Twist n' Spout water slide is for guests between 38 and 64 inches tall.

The AquaDunk has a minimum height requirement of 48".

In the video he said it was a "family slide, not just for kids."
Where does it mention height restrictions?
TIA

Not sure about the atrium, stair change I can live with but I thought the Chihuly was wonderful.

Spa updates, good move.

Furniture updates, good move.

New slides, not my cup of tea. The AquaDunk ruins the lines, and the thing I liked about the Mickey slide was that younger kids could enjoy it, I don't think I would put a 4 or 5 year old in the new twisty one, at least from the little I have seen so far.

I liked Mickey's pool, again a good place for younger kids, and one of my best memories (OK on the Wonder not Magic) was sitting in Mickey's ears with my son after dinner looking at the stars and no one else was around on deck 9. Happy to see the new splash zone, the tiny one next to the Mickey Pool wasn't anything special.

Parrot Cay change, good move.

Adult zone, well, the renderings don't appeal to me, they seem too modern for the classic design of the ships. I get their logic that they were underutilized and therefore making a change could improve that, but the new space doesn't do anything for me.

AP Change, good move, I liked the show on the Dream better, when Crush spoke to a youngster at our table it was amazing and probably a great memory for that family.

Oceaneers Club, good moves, more variety should appeal to more kids, all the photos look fantastic.

What photos? Where are they? We are in a suite so I am curious.

Press release. Here: http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/di...-enhancements/ it specifically calls it a kids slide (the Twist n' Spout).

I'm still going to try

It all depends on you child. I know mine at age 4 would've been first in line. She was rising those body speed slides at Typhoon Lagoon sans a life jacket and those dump you into a pool!

I'm curious about what "ocean view quarter" implies regarding the suites.

Also not sure about that Royal suite carpet.

Good to know. I thought I had to have a young child to see the kid areas during the open house and all other nights it was totally off limits to adults. When we went on the Dream I wanted to see the Teen club but my DD didn't care to go.

Nope! Go and enjoy! On the Fantasy my DH went to see Vibe (and maybe Edge too?), as did out childless-couple friends.
