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

The parks aren't dead, but in 2019 if I would have told you that Magic Kingdom was at capacity you probably wouldn't have expected to wait only 35 minutes for Peter Pan, 25 minutes for Haunted Mansion

Very nice work here and with the new circus area in Fantasyland. It's good to see this section of the park getting such a great upgrade, and I'm looking forward to checking it out for myself (particularly the new coaster and Be Our Guest restaurant).

The whole area looks great! While the ride certainly takes liberties with cramming the Little Mermaid story into a dark ride, it is most definitely a solid B/C ticket ride that will be a great addition to the park.

^ & ^^ I honestly don't understand the bitching about this ride. There is NOTHING wrong with it. It's a dark ride. Maybe it's because it appeals to girls more, I dunno, but when all the idiot SoCal Disneyland fanboys bitched about it because they weren't getting a "Tokyo Pooh" ride or whatever, I was the one going "Um, it's The Little Mermaid...it's FINE! It tells the story, it has the music, and kids LOVE it. Why all the complaining??!?!"

 

It's certainly a million times better than California's abysmal Pooh ride or their even worse Nemo subs, and a vast improvement over the old-and-busted Snow White ride that was removed at MK.

^^Florida's Little Mermaid has a moch nicer setting than California's, too. The building at DCA is very nice and goes well with the Paradise Pier area, but I like that Disney has given the ride a much grander facade in Florida's Fantasyland.

Robb, I totally agree with you. I absolutely love the DCA ride. But I also love the Monsters Inc. ride so ...

 

I've said it before but Mermaid was EXACTLY the ride that DCA needed and EXACTLY the ride that MK needs. An air conditioned people-eating ride with no Fastpass. (The MK one doesn't have FP correct?)

 

Is it the best ride ever, no, but as Robb said, it's immensely better than Pooh, Disneyland's Nemo and the overrated Peter Pan.

 

I love the Facade for MK's, DCA's is ok, it fits in with Paradise Pier and honestly they never have to use the outside queue so no issue there.

When they started constructing new Fantasyland way back in 2011 (the last time I saw it in person), I wasn't sold on the extreme forced perspective of Beast's Castle at the Be Our Guest restaurant, probably because of it still being, well, under construction. But after I saw this shot I was completely floored. They really did a fantastic job on the exterior.

It does... (or at least it will)

It looks really great. There doesn't look like much or anything to complain about the ride, it tells the story and gets the point across in a very interactive, beautiful way. I'm fine with it. I never do figure out how people find ways to complain about things, I can never see what's wrong with. I guess it could just be me.

 

I can't wait to see this New Fantasyland complete when all the rest of the areas open. (Especially the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train)

The Gaston walk around character is much less muscular than the cartoon

 

I love this movie and this area looks like it does it justice. I very much approve. Thanks for the coverage!

The hair looks to be right on though.
