    Always. But new since when is the question for you.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    New? Hardly. Well it depends on when your last visit was.

    Talking Re: WDW question

    The last time I visited WDW was two years ago. My next trip to WDW is in December of this year. I am so excited about my vacation.

    A few things I can think of since two years ago --

    * El Gran Fiesta at Epcot
    * New Innoventions installations at Epcot
    * Updated Spaceship Earth at Epcot
    * Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor at Magic Kingdom
    * Toy Story Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios
    * American Idol Experience at Disney's Hollywood Studios
    * Crush 'n' Gusher at Typhoon Lagoon

    I'm sure there are many more, and some may be older than two years, but those are some thoughts off the top of my head!

    • De-macdonaldfying of WDW - All the McDonalds french fry stands are now serving different items.
    • Pirate League opened in Adventureland in MK.
    • The Stitch show came and went, but you diddn't miss much there...

    Epcot

    • Space Ship Earth - Referb, new soundtrack, sponsor and ending.
    • Kim Possible Adventure - minor changes around the Wold showcase for the scavenger hunt style experience.
    • Living with the land - refurb supposedly getting new soundtrack/spiel
    • Remmy the rat now appearing at lunch in chef's de France.


    Disney Hollywood Studios:

    • Toy Story mania.
    • American Idol experience.
    • D23 Sponsorship of one man's dream - not much changed except they did take away the VMK laptop...
    • Narnia changed to Prince Caspian.


    Animal Kingdom:

    • Pocahontas show is gone.
    • Centralized fast pass service added to the old bugs life FP location, you can now get a FP for any attraction that's distributing them there vrs walking all the way to the attraction itself.


    Entertainment districts (DTD/Boardwalk)

    • Kat Kora's new restaurant replaced Spoodles.
    • Characters in flight balloon at DTD
    • Closing of the clubs on PI
    • The Princess Dianna experience at DTD.


    Resorts

    • Bay Lake tower (BLT) DVC property opened, remodeling of parts of the contemporary resort as well
    • AK DVC Property opened.
    • Queen sized beds to all rooms, flat panel tv's and new suites at Coronado Springs. (refurb ongoing as of last month)
    • The deluxe resorts have been remodeled with flat screen TV's and high speed internet connections.
    • Pirate and Nemo room remodels and pool remodel (added kids interactive water play area) at the CBR.
    • The resort mugs are rotated seasonally to prevent you from reusing them over and over each trip...


    Several menu's have changes at the restaurants both in and out of the parks, some restaurants have improved dramatically like Tony's town Square while others seem to have slipped a bit.

    I'm sure I'm missing something here... anyone?

    The Princess Dianna experience at DTD.
    This is just a temporary exhibit running through the end of November in the former Virgin Megastore on the West Side of Downtown Disney.

    I just got back and I didn't see the centralized Fast Pass service. We still had to walk to all the different areas.

    I'm also trying to think what is new...it was 3 years since this last visit and it's hard to remember what was new recently...

    Don't forget the spectacular refurb of the Haunted Mansion, which started in late 2007.

    The Centralized fast pass is located in the old bugs Life Fastpass area, easy to overlook if you don't know where to look. They have placed Signs on top of the existing machines with the attraction they are programmed for.

    Now that dosn't mean you can hit all the FP's at once mind you (They are still time locked you have to wait till the next one is available) but it's convenient to grab one there on the way in or on the way to flame tree BBQ for lunch, then just eat grab another (if available) and then watch it's a bugs life and roll on over to the attraction your fp is for.

    Shouldn't that be spooktacular?
    He felt like his life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.

    Actually it's not there anymore. It was just a test, and it ended at the end of Aug.

    Thanks, cause we walked by and I was all excited for it and it wasn't there and another disney site said it was a test and wouldn't be open when we were there.

    The "new" haunted mansion is really cool! The portrait of Master Gracey is worth watching from start to finish, and the stairways are cool too.

    Finding Nemo the Musical is also new, but I didn't watch it while I was there.

    This was a helpful thread. It's been a 3-year gap for me so now I know what I have to make sure to see. I forgot all about those HM and Spaceship Earth refurbs!

    They have re-done the queue for Rock n Roller Coaster, there are separate areas for Stand By, Single Rider and Fast Pass. And you don't have to stop in the queue outside and wait anymore.
