    Haha there's no dancing turtle in the finale scene.

    The queue is phenomenal. DCA's is beaten out by MK on that alone. Just a wholly better setup.

    Things I noticed watching the video:

    There is still a control panel in the first scene with Scuttle. Fish are STILL static prior to Under the Sea...could have used an upgrade here. Positives: No dancing turtle and Triton looks to have a more cartoonishly styled beard. Is Sebastian in the final scene at DCA as well? I don't remember seeing him there.

    I feel the queue is so elaborately done for a ride with little pay-off.

    last time i buy crystal ball from pic n save!

    Does anyone know how long the soft openings are going to run for before they get it ready for the "Grand opening"?

    Yes he is. He was supposed to be conducting a chorus of Ariel's sisters, but it was cut out in favor of more barely-animated animatronic sea creatures.

    The finale works a lot better without glaring sunlight or the bright lights from the loading room. A lot.

    This is a huge surprise! I was kind of bummed out because we were leaving 2 weeks from Saturday... but hey! Looks like we're in luck!

    The current rumors are that we should expect openings most days from 10-6 until they start the formal previews next weekend at which point it's unclear what we should expect for openings.

    The queue is fantastic to Little Mermaid, as is everything up to the load. I did notice Triton's beard is different...covers up his chest more. And the enhancements on Ursula dying are not that much. But its a solid addition to the park that was needed. Still have my doubts about Belle's Village, etc.

    ORDDU: My sisters and I managed to swoop down into the Magic Kingdom today, 10/13, and were completely delighted by what we saw of the New Fantasyland--

    ORGOCH: I think what had ya the MOST delighted was ta see Gaston out 'n about so's ya could drool all over the poor sap!

    ORWEN: Anyway, the details for the Fantasyland expansion are at least as fantastic as the details we saw at IOA's Harry Potter Land. (Of course we're not exactly big fans of Harry Potter to begin with so we'll admit to being biased.)

    ORDDU: Even so, the magic and fantasy elements of this new expansion are much more to our liking than we expected. We loved the Little Mermaid attraction and really don't understand why a certain few have been criticizing it so much. For us it was thoroughly enjoyable.

    ORWEN: The landscaping alone is enough to make us want to rent a room in one of the 2 new castles instead of going back to the marshes of Morva!

    ORGOCH: Fergit that, sister!! Like as if a big fat butt like yers would even fit through the front doors of either one a them puny things!!

    (Sounds of thrashings and smashings followed by a deadly calm...)
