    Oh, the mine train… It had better deliver or Disney is going to be eating crow over New Fantasyland. I’m baffled by how long it takes them to build this stuff.

    • TodAZ1

      Me too! I think they re-built all of DCA in less time!

        The timetable for this coaster is absolutely ridiculous. Obviously they’ve either value engineered it by using 1/2 the normal crew and stretching out the length of time needed, because there’s no way it’s more than a 45-second ride that happens to be partially indoors.

    I think if you are expecting splash mountain you will be disappointed. I do think the coaster will add back the movement and kinetic nature that the Subs added to the area though.

    I think everyone had a pretty good idea what to expect since Little Mermaid is a transplant from Dland but the area is a winner in my opinion just from the level of theming. It is beautiful, especially at night, cant wait for all the construction to be done and see the area as a whole. It kind of leaves an awkwardly large open area between the castle and carousel, the new area and the Peter Pan Small World path. I’ll be interested to see what becomes of this area.

    Love the column Cory, a must read every week. I know it’s always fun to go to the World but I imagine some weeks it’s inconvenient to take the time to go. I think we all appreciate the effort, btw when did the two tone roof go on the castle? We were just there Memorial Day and I don’t recall noticing it.

    Great update.

    It’s so much fun to see the extras Disney offer like Mickey and the marching band or the Dapper Dans or the Hoe Down in Frontierland. Glad to see the clowns but I’ve always wondered, how do they stay cool? The costuming is wonderful but I’d have a heat stroke! I wear short sleeves nearly all winter!

    Great update. The mine train is looking great. I wish they’d speed up the construction though because its taking them forever. But i’d rather them take their time and have an excellent ride than mess it up because they went too fast.

  • Orlando71

    I never noticed the apples either. Is that new, and where is it?

  • davidrusk

    For those of us who can’t get to the park even annually, these photos mean a lot! Great photos and comments. Thanks so much for doing this!

    *Mentally adds waffle sandwiches to his WDW to-do list*

  • TodAZ1

    They have Fastpass for the Mad Tea Party??? Really?? OY!!!

  • Big D

    I’m down with the waffle sandwiches. The prosciutto one sounds awesome!

  • Amy VandenBoogert

    I’ll go on record saying those waffle sandwiches are awesome. I’ve had the sweet & spicy chicken one and the fresh fruit & Nutella one and…. OMG. SO GOOD! I try to get one most visits to the Magic Kingdom. Oh and they’re HUGE!

    If you found the Storybook Circus Giggle Gang clowns show to be interesting and entertaining, why label them as “creepy clowns”? I’ve watched this show too and I agree that they are fun and funny shows and in my opinion, not at all creepy.

  • RandySavage

    This column is also a weekly must-read for me. The photos are awesome.

    MK is shining in these pics. Signage looks good. Always been – and still am – bullish on the FLE mainly due to its sensational place-making.
