    More news on New Fantasyland

    I've been reading about some of the details of Fantasyland released during the D23 event.

    www.MousePlanet.com and insidethemagic had a condensed version, here it is, sorry wouldn't link:




    More news on New Fantasyland

    Thanks to information tweeted by attendees at a presentation at the D23 Destination Disney event over the weekend, we've got some more information about the New Fantasyland expansion. The Imagineers are working hard to make the expansion a series of "family adventures," rather than just a bunch of princess experiences, as was originally announced.

    In the Beauty and the Beast-themed area, the inside of Maurice's cottage will be full of details and wacky inventions, as well as an Animatronic wardrobe. A "Magic Moment" will transport you to Beast's Castle to meet with Belle. This is estimated to be a 40-minute experience. Nearby, the Be Our Guest restaurant will feature snow outside its windows year-round.

    The new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride will be a cross between The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wise Acre Farm and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. There will be two lift hills and two drops, with the second lift hill in the dark inside the Dwarfs' mine. Snow White and possibly the witch will make cameo appearances in the ride.

    Over in Storybook Circus Land, the new Dumbo spinner will be made by the same Italian company that made the original ride, but the colors will be much brighter, with more storytelling on the actual ride pieces.
    The Great Goofini coaster will feature stunt acts gone wrong.

    Meanwhile, the train station will be completely rebuilt.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    This sounds awesome. I am excited to see the progress in December and hopefully to experience it in June of 2012!

    Re: More news on New Fantasyland

    My thoughts...

    The Imagineers are working hard to make the expansion a series of "family adventures," rather than just a bunch of princess experiences, as was originally announced.

    Thank goodness! Last place I'd spend much time if it was all about the Princesses. Then again, there still seems to be more than enough Princessie things being added.


    In the Beauty and the Beast-themed area, the inside of Maurice's cottage will be full of details and wacky inventions, as well as an Animatronic wardrobe. A "Magic Moment" will transport you to Beast's Castle to meet with Belle. This is estimated to be a 40-minute experience.
    40 minutes, Wow! I wonder if there is a bail-out so you can take a peek at the wacky inventions and bolt?

    Nearby, the Be Our Guest restaurant will feature snow outside its windows year-round.

    Well if the snow is done right that could be a cool effect!

    The new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride will be a cross between The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wise Acre Farm and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. There will be two lift hills and two drops, with the second lift hill in the dark inside the Dwarfs' mine. Snow White and possibly the witch will make cameo appearances in the ride.

    Hmmm....wonder if it will at least be a longer ride than Goofy's? Hopefully the seat back will not have points that jab you in the spine like the Goofy one does.

    Over in Storybook Circus Land, the new Dumbo spinner will be made by the same Italian company that made the original ride, but the colors will be much brighter, with more storytelling on the actual ride pieces.
    The Great Goofini coaster will feature stunt acts gone wrong.
    Wonder what is meant by storytelling???


    Meanwhile, the train station will be completely rebuilt.

    I'm most happy that the Train Station will return. We'd often hop the train to get to another end of the park when we were in the rain or our feet we tired.

    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Re: More news on New Fantasyland

    Maybe they will try to explain Dumbo.. Who knows.

    I think Maurice's cabin would be pretty awesome. If it's all inside that makes it even better (on a hot summer day especially!!) I am looking forward to this whole thing.

    So will the Mine ride be a little crazier (wilder) than Goofy's. I mean, my family hated Barnstormer, will we be able to enjoy it while it's still good for kiddies?

    Looks promising. Hope the dark portion of the mine train is not frightful for the kids. When my DDs were small, Goofy was a good option to introduce coasters.
