I am grateful for all the expansions occurring around the resort. Hopefully will help spread out the crowds a bit (I know it'll be more than countered by further increases in crowds). But some more rides will do DisneySea a lot of good, regardless.

I wonder why they are not doing a Matterhorn-style ride for Frozen: if there was ever a movie that seemed to set up that kind of ride, the Frozen sleigh ride scene down the mountain seemed to be it. (I have a soft spot for Matterhorn, and particularly love all the riding through the caverns inside the mountain -- there are so many cool things you can do with a coaster darting in and out of those spaces. I was disappointed that Everest comparatively had little to none of that (mostly in the dark). I sure wish they had executed that Swiss Pavillion plan for Epcot).

If I'm not mistaken, that kind of experience (though obviously not as huge) will be in Hong Kong Disneyland's Frozen expansion.

One thing I remember reading about the TDS expansion announcement, they did not want a clone of the water ride at EPCOT (repurposed Maelstrom). So who knows what this attraction will be like? Which makes it all the more exciting!

And the expansion at Hong Kong will have two Frozen attractions. One will be the (sort of) clone of the EPCOT water ride, the other a family coaster themed on Kristoff's sleigh. To me, the art concept looked like a redesigned Dwarfs Mine Train coaster.
HKDL's FrozenLand artwork. Looks a bit like the Mine Train Coaster. At least this front part does.

Posted on the net...recent construction of Fantasy Springs in TDS...

And about three weeks+ until SOARING Opens! :mickey:
EDIT TO ADD: From the photo I just posted below, this looks like it's possibly the start of the new PETER PAN section of Fantasy Springs. And not the hotel I first thought. Thanks to whoever took this and posted it online. (o:

Two new overhead shots of TDLR were published on a Japanese site, today. And upon closer look, it appears (to me) that the first photo is showing the PETER PAN section of Fantasy Springs in TDS being built. And you can just make out SOARING (and it's show building) in the middle of the second photo here.

By the way, if these two photos were placed side by side,
this would be an awesome panoramic shot of (most of) all the TDLR! :mickey:
Above the PP construction area, is where I believe/think that the Tangled section will go.
And the entry pathway will enter between them. What I think/believe. (o:
