The themeing os great, but I'm not a fan of TLM ride. BOG is great though and I'm sure SDMT will be too.

You didn't order a warm cinnamon bun at the tavern then, did you? That was certainly not a disappointment in my book!

I haven't seen the NFL yet. I am going next summer and hope the SDMT will be open and everything finished. Why do I get the feeling that it won't be...

I liked New Fantasyland. Even better at night, especially Dumbo!

I didn't try the cinnamon bun at Gastons but did get the LeFeus Brew and the pork shank,LeFeus brew was a frozen soft applesauce,no big deal at all,the pork shank was 60% grease and fat,eating that with your hands was the definition of a mess,very small likelihood of me ordering that again.Be our Guest however has been mostly positive,I've eaten there twice for lunch and liked it for the most part.

I'm certain that I am the only one who seems to not be particularly in love with the BOG lunch. I found it a bit pricey, but more importantly, the menu was insanely limited; I guess that I just don't like steak for lunch. Just my opinion, of course. Haven't tried the dinner service so I can't comment on that. Theming is great though!

I felt the same way. It is very impressively themed but just doesn't live up to the hype Disney marketing put into it. I didn't feel like either of the attractions are worth the wait times they build up right now, and didn't get a chance to try BOG because of the lines at lunch and the mad-180-day-rush for ADRs for dinner.

Maybe I'll feel differently when the entire area is complete, because the construction zone smack in the middle is bound to detract somewhat even when trying to overlook it, or maybe I just didn't enjoy it as much as I would have if I'd had my one target-audience aged kid with me on either of my last two trips and I'll "get it" when I finally see it through my 4yo's eyes.

Having not experienced the New Fantasyland yet, I'm going to withhold judgment, however I do believe that much of the disappointment in the Little Mermaid attraction is because there was and is so much of a build up to the attraction it self. Not only prior to it's opening, but also the build up in the attraction itself. The queue area looks incredible. It definitely surpasses almost every other attraction in all of WDW. I believe that if the exact attraction would have just replaced the Snow White attraction, with a non-descript queue area, more of the reviews would have been positive.

I loved it. The little mermaid and beauty and the beast are me faves (I have a tattoo of Ariel's silhouette on my arm) so I was in heaven!

I highly enjoyed it and loved everything about it, but I do have a few friends who were a bit disappointed. It all boils down to what you expected from it.

My party was a group of 20, 24, and 28 year old ladies and we all loved it. Even the Tangled restrooms/rest area was breathtaking, especially at night.

We didn't wait in any lines AT ALL for anything except Be Our Guest though. I agree that I would not want to wait in really long lines for any of the current attractions.

We thought the area was beautiful. Was not impressed with Gaston's (yuk on the Gaston's brew but the pork shank was good). Did enjoy Enchanted Tales with Belle especially when the mirror transformed into the door and Lumiere. Ariel's ride was cute. On the same line as Nemo but we liked it more. Theming was great all around and BOG was fantastic. Can't wait for the mine train to open.

Was a great play area at Dumbo but I can see that getting really crowded. Casey's train was cute.

Overall, we did enjoy it. First time we did it at night and missed alot of the details and went back during the daytime and picked up on the little things that Disney does so well.

I think my family will like it, as we do love Disney detail and theming. However, since it is all about the rides for us...that part is not going to be great. We lost snow white to get another kiddie ride (have watched youtube videos of it) I am sure we will enjoy it, but will not get really excited about it. I think once the mine coaster is done, we will be happy. I could see a family with older kids not being that impressed and being underwhelmed about the hype. Disney does need a few more exciting rides for this demographic.

Wait for the mine cart.

I loved UTS, though my wife wasn't impressed.

However, BOG absolutely blew us away. The West Wing is simply amazing, and the food was fantastic.

Overall, the theming of NFL is a sight to behold.
