This is really exciting. Especially for those of us with little girls who are into the princesses. Be interesting to see when they start construction.

Looks like toontown fair is going bye-bye.

I just hope this doesn't destroy Tomorrowland, or the Grand Prix Raceway (one of my favorite rides).

Kay...I will be the bummer.

WHAT ABOUT OUR LITTLE BOYS?

Personally, this last trip I took, I thought to myself, they have gone totally overboard with the princess thing. The Castle used to be a perfect balance, you could have your princess meal for breakfast, and a nice romantic type dinner ....without a side show...in the evenings. Now it is a princess parade all day and night. I am wondering.

Seriously, enough is enough.....and I think there is more than enough princess stuff going on. Ask you ten year old son if he wants to step foot in princess land form more than five seconds and get lost in a sea of mini princessess.

WHAT ABOUT OUR LITTLE BOYS?

How about a peter pan zone?
Or a Pinocchio zone...
ANYTHING!

I seriously think that the princess avenue is LESS than imaginative and in my opinion...a flop.

~modified to add, I know where our little boys will be...OVER AT UNIVERSAL!

I am sorry, but if they are trying to keep up, this is not going to do it, Harry Potter appeals to both genders...and mass ages.....princess land does not.
I am disappointed and peeved quite frankly.

Kruggie, you raise a very good point...and one that I had not really thought of.

Kruggie. I don't disagree with you at all. I long for the days of a quiet, semi-romantic evening meal at the castle...but I fear those days are gone.

That being said, Fantasyland has always been a "girl zone", so there isn't much harm in the update.

Boys have Adventureland, Frontierland, Tomorrowland and even the Haunted Mansion in Liberty Square. I think it's a decent balance.

Kruggie, I with you on this one. I think it is a joke to go with the princesses. If Disney thinks that this is going to bring in more guest and stop them from going to the HP they need to rethink this.

What happen to a Villains park this would be a great time to bring that in.

Plus I think this is going to screw up the crowd flow like you would not believe.

As a adult that has no small kids to take to the park I am very tried of a lot of favorites being changed to princess. Looks like we just might be spending more and more time at Epcot.
