After 21 years as a musician, I was also terminated via email.   Not sure how much a difference it will make, but if you miss LIVE entertainment, feel free to email WDW at   wdw.guest.comm

Might be an unpopular opinion with some of the don't change anything to old rides Disney fans but I think this is great that they are updating it. The last few times I went on it at both parks I thoug

It was very interesting after spending several days at Disney last week to visit Universal yesterday and see how much live entertainment they had! I wonder why Disney cut everyone while Universal seem

I'm still holding out hope that someone will spike Gaston's punch bowl, last I checked a frothy frozen apple juice drink would work pretty well with a multitude of high proof liquors, that's how Gaston would have wanted it anyways.

I like the way "Gaston" thinks!

I expected real beer for adults, and a "special, non-alcoholic" beer for kids.

The only problem would be if kids thought they were drinking real beer, they'd be all " Beer" and then they'd turn into teenage alcoholics...

Well, thanks Disney!

^Disneyland has a bar at Club 33, but we all know how hard it is to get inside. They won't be serving anything like that to the normal parkgoers.

 

Wow, there is a place called Club 33 in Disneyland with a bar!!!!! I must be the only person who has never heard of this!!!!!!

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/09/all-in-the-details-the-first-photos-from-under-the-sea-journey-of-the-little-mermaid-at-magic-kingdom-park/

 

Today we’re thrilled to share the very first photos from inside the Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid attraction, which will open at Magic Kingdom Park this December.

 

Housed in the grottos below Prince Eric’s Castle, this New Fantasyland attraction invites guests to follow Ariel on her remarkable journey as she meets Prince Eric, falls in love, and makes a deal with Ursula, the evil Sea Witch.

 

These photos, supplied by Walt Disney Imagineering, are some of my favorite that we’ve shared in our “All in the Details” series so far. I love this shot, which is obviously inspired by the “Kiss the Girl” scene from the film.

 

And check out some of Sebastian’s friends above – sure looks like they’re having fun “Under the Sea.”

 

Many of you have asked about the differences between this attraction and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure attraction at Disney California Adventure park.

 

For that answer, you can’t miss our previous posts and photos of the attraction’s impressive exterior, which includes Prince Eric’s Castle, and its queue, which leads through shipwrecks and rocky cliffs below.

When the sun sets here at Disney Parks, it’s time for our nighttime spectaculars. And tonight, we’re sharing a few updates on what’s to come this year at the Walt Disney World Resort, including plans to expand seating for Fantasmic! shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

 

Beginning in November, “Celebrate the Magic” at Magic Kingdom Park will transform Cinderella Castle with spectacular new projection effects. Disney Parks Blog readers are among the first to see our newest sneak peek images.

 

When shows begin, “Celebrate the Magic” will feature all-new music, storytelling and special effects. It’ll be a journey to the heart of the most beloved Disney stories and characters, according to show director Katy Harris.

Would have been cool if they at least expanded Mermaid a little, especially the obviously cramped scenes near the end of the ride at DCA. They obviously had more space to work with at WDW...sigh.

For some reason, I didn't realize that VotLM was coming to Magic Kingdom along with the Ariel meet-and-greet. I liked it at DCA, but I do agree that the scenes are very rushed. It's a cute ride though, and it's got an amazing capacity, so I'm sure plenty of people will love it as it is!

I know it is a minor point, but for those of you that have been following the game's development or collect Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom cards, there's a special card being given out this year at the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. The card is distributed nightly during the party at the Firehouse (you cannot get it at the Liberty Square Sorcerers desk) and a valid event admission ticket must be presented to get the card.

Looks like TPR's wishes have been answered. Alcohol will now be served in the Magic Kingdom:

 

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/09/storytelling-through-dining-at-be-our-guest-restaurant-in-new-fantasyland/

 

When it opens at Magic Kingdom Park on November 19, Be Our Guest Restaurant will magically drop guests into the world of Belle and the Beast with a whole new level of theming for a Disney restaurant. “More than ever, we’re using storytelling and creativity as we develop our menus,” says Maribeth Bisienere, vice president of Food & Beverage and Merchandise for The Walt Disney Company. “We’re continually creating magical experiences, and Be Our Guest Restaurant at New Fantasyland is the next step in the evolution.”

 

 

 

The storytelling starts with Walt Disney Imagineering, but it’s not long before the Food & Beverage team starts creating a menu to match the theatrics. This time, it’s all about the mysterious new Magic Kingdom Park castle that’s home to Beast from “Beauty and the Beast,” with a majestic Ballroom with 20-foot-tall ceilings, elegant chandeliers and a wall of 18-foot-tall windows that overlook the French countryside where a light snow is falling; the Rose Gallery, with a large music box centerpiece that’s almost 7 feet tall, with Belle and the Beast slowly twirling atop; and the forbidden, dramatic West Wing, with the warm glow of the Beast’s enchanted rose.

 

A team of Disney chefs, including longtime Disney Chef Roland Muller, a native of Alsace, France, has spent more than three years developing the French-inspired menu, creating both a quick-service menu for lunch and a more elegant table-service menu for dinner.

 

“Our role is to finish the story,” says Walt Disney World Executive Chef Lenny DeGeorge. And while the quick-service lunch is more of a French bistro, dinner is a more elegant affair with dishes themed to the film: a whole roasted hen, a pork rack chop, pan-seared salmon with leek fondue and saffron potatoes. Gourmet cupcakes and mousse-filled cream puffs are finished tableside.

 

And just for dinner, select wines and beers will be offered that complement the French-inspired cuisine.

 

“As part of the overall theming, we wanted to offer wine that enhances the guest experience and complements the French-inspired cuisine,” says Stuart McGuire, Beverage Director, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “The wines focus primarily on France’s famous wine-growing regions, including Champagne, Alsace, Loire, Rhone, Burgundy and Bordeaux.

 

“We’ll also offer the leading French beer, Kronenbourg 1664,” says McGuire. “And, staying in the general region, we’ll also offer Belgian beers.”

 

Servers complete the picture, dressed in a style inspired by European fashions from the 1400s to the 1600s: a royal purple embroidered doublet, or vest, over a shirt with knickers that reach just below the knee. For evening service, a jabot or ruffle, buttoned at the throat, is added.

 

“From the moment they cross the bridge into the castle, it’s all about immersing our guests in the dining experience,” says Bisienere. “Every detail is part of the story.”
