    Yes. Why don't they have Testosterone Land? We could have the Chest Hair attraction, The Eat With Your Mouth Open Ride, and The Tunnel Of Gas. Could be really cool!

    Actually, I thought it was "Socks With Crocs"...

    (Admittedly guilty of that, but because of the blisters on my feet at the time...)

    I heard about the addition of Pixie Hollow - but doesn't Fantasyland already have that? Anyone hear about the Beast's castle in this refurb? As to refurbishing Star Tours, that is in the plans, incorporating the new trio of movies into the script.

    Pixie Hollow as it exists now is inside where the Princess Meet&Greet is in Toontown. It's a nice area, but it still feels indoors.

    The new one will be a (mostly) outdoor area, which will also include a new themed play area (or at least the current designs have one).

    I believe the Beast's castle is the exterior design for the Be Our Guest/Gaston's Tavern dining areas (the former being a table service restaurant, the latter counter service).

    And yes, Star Tours 2 was finally confirmed. The only video shown at D23 is of a pod race segment, but it will not be the only part of the new film. Plus, it will be in 3D although the technology for it hasn't been said. Word is they were planning on using some sort of projection technology that would not require the polarized glasses, but no idea if that will be the case.

    I believe the Beast's Castle is going to be one of the restaurants. I don't see how you can have another "castle" so close to Cinderella Castle even if it is a restaurant. Should be interesting.

    I don't think it is going to be a full castle ala Cindy's...from the artwork, it looks like via perspective it will be somewhere in the distance, with the restaurant underneath it.

    I know the plans are fluid and subject to change, however, I think too much emphasis is being put on meet and greet. I know it's just my personal opinion but I don't like it.

    Re: Fantasyland Is Expanding

    I'm curious about something. One of the incarnations of the new Fantasyland that I read about, back when this was still rumor, claimed that the expanded Dumbo ride would be realized by taking Aladdin out of Adventurland, retheming it and dropping it next to the original Dumbo in a new location in what is currently ToonTown. I've seen what appears to be official confirmation of every aspect of this except for the closing of Aladdin.

    Has anyone heard anything official about whether or not this does indeed mean the end of Aladdin? Thanks.

    Tony
