We have a Walt Disney World photo update from Denise Preskitt today. The new Tangled-themed area in the Magic Kingdom that she features doesn’t have any rides, but it looks like a nice addition to the park. Plus electrical outlets in the tree stump seating proves that park managers actually listen to guest feedback on occasion. ~~Rick

I wanted to share the lovely new area in the Magic Kingdom with the Tangled theme (plus some Epcot Flower & Garden night photos).

For many months – a lot of months! – this area of the Magic Kingdom has been known online as the Rapunzel bathrooms…or Rapunzel potties, or Tangled toilets. While I had seen the progress from above at the Columbia Harbor House occasionally, it was even nicer than I expected when the walls finally came down this week. Yes, there are bathrooms. And no, there isn’t a ride (and the Magic Kingdom could use some new rides!), it’s still a gorgeous area of the park that happens to have nicely themed bathrooms.

The Tangled tower and waterfall:

The men’s room is Flynn Rider themed, with hanging frying pans and wanted posters.

The women’s room has murals on the ceiling, props like paint and a guitar, and this nice touch at the baby changing area:

There is a stream with hidden Pascal friends (they are not only in the stream area, but most are nearby):

Guests can eat lunch outside in the seating area, this table has a beautiful view of the tower and waterfall.

Outlets in the stumps:

There are supposed to be USB ports as well at some point.

It’s a beautiful park-like setting with a ton of detail!

Here is our detailed video:


And we spent a couple of days at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. One new aspect this year is the illuminated gardens and topiaries. They haven’t been as spectacular as expected, but many of the topiaries do look very nice with the lights. I plan to bring a tripod soon.

Here is our video of some of the Illuminated gardens:

With that, we close another wonderful report from Denise of MouseSteps.com. Thank you Denise, and thank you readers. What do you think of the new Tangled Toilets at Magic Kingdom?
