    Thats only YOUR perspective though.....
    Honestly, to 99.9% of visitors, they will like Micky and Minnie on Main st.
    And, im sure it will only be until the refurb of fantasyland is finished.
    We can all live with it.

    I agree that DHS would be the better deal. If they wanted to they could really make another Toontown there...but expand on it..kind of like from Roger Rabbit..or something like that. I just dont think that it fits on Main St.

    From what I've heard, Mickey and Minnie are staying on Main Street (Town Square) for good.

    Main St. makes sense to me.
    They won't be meeting in their houses. They will be meeting in Expo Hall.

    Let me clear things...

    They're not going to rebuild Mickey and Minnie's houses in Main Street.

    They're just going to give them a new meet-and-greet location inside the Expo Hall.

    Weren't they forced to do this though due to some copyright issue?

    I really hope they keep the barnstormer.

    Barnstormer is still there in the plans...it may be rethemed in some way though.

    Re: If I said....

    Mickey & Minnie's houses better be getting some serious upscale turn of the century human decoration if they're gonna move to Main Street... I think they're only Moving Mickey and Minnie to the exposition hall, right?
    The Golden age never was the present age… but with human liberty we can fulfill the promise and meaning of America. To everyone a chance. To all people, regardless of their birth the right to live, to work, to be themselves, and to become whatever their visions can combine to make them. This is the promise of America...And I foresee the American adventure to continue for a long, long time!

    Erm people.... Disney aren't stupid (although there have been occasions when this has been called into question) they realise the houses would look ridiculous in Main Street and it would mess up the whole theming, hence as Joanna has already said they are doing up part of the Expo hall into a Meet and Greet.

    I agree DHS would be a better fit than main street. The do need to upgrade the houses a bit...

    Yeah I think the initial rumor has been discounted. Looks more likely that just Mickey and minnie will be making the move.

    Re: If I said....

    First off, it shouldn't go on Main Street. It's out of place. Saratoga Springs (what Main Street is based off of) with random homes of mice. Doesn't work and doesn't flow.
    Their plans are to keep Mickey and Minnie's house but it depens on where they put them. DHS would work, but otherwise I can't think of any other fitting place to put them in the MK. Barnstormer is staying, but I don't know if the theme is changing because of the Fantasyland plans.
