    I thought I read that one of the Imagineers said in a recent online chat there would definitely *not* be an M&G in this area. Then again, BOG was *not* going to be a character meal, and the Beast is meeting there (though not in traditional make-the-rounds character meal fashion). :confused3

    That must be why I think they're dying--I read the same thing.

    Makes sense. It does seem a bit off to have a princess meet and greet next to the bathrooms with the occasional toilet flushes and high pitch hand dryer noises coming through the walls :lmao:

    I can also anticipate the gradual onset of disappointment on my DD's face when she first sees the building believing it's a new Rapunzel attraction or meet and greet, then realizes they're just restrooms! ;)

    You are correct...

    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.

    I heard they were building a new ride or something. As long as SWSA is still there though, I'm good.

    Maybe the opening of the new Rapunzel Bathroom M&G area? :banana:

    As a side note is this thread now redundant as the Brits would say? Or is it still valid until the Mine Train opens?

    We're at MK today and saw the opening ceremonies. It was great! In line for Enchanted Tales w/ Belle right now. Went from a 10 minute wait to a 90 minute wait in about 5 minutes.

    Love those pictures Jenn! When I ate lunch there last week that room was closed off for some reason, so I couldn't get any pics in there, only the rose room and main banquet hall, though they were both wonderful.

    WEll it was technically closed off too but I saw some others go in, so I went in as well. There was a couple of CM's in there and they didn't seem to have a problem with it and even answered questions.
    I asked if this was the area for the Counter service and the CM told me al l3 rooms would be open for counter service. I don't know if that is true or not, but I heard the waits are long right now, so it would be wise to have all that seating.

    I had the Warm Cinnamon Roll at Gaston's. It was HUGE!!!! And more like a piece of cake than a cinnamon roll, but oh so delicious. No pics inside though, sorry!
