I thought about that too Angela! The Villans thing. How wonderful it would be to have just a little corner tucked away where one could catch up with their favorite nasty people! Of course, I suppose that would not appeal to all either...I imagine there would be some little ones who would really not like to venture there.

I really wish they would have thought this whole thing through a little and came up with something that appeals more to all. I do think it is a nice idea, but I think they could incorperate something other than princess stuff.

What I find worrysome, is that yes, your LITTLE girls will love this zone, but what is the appeal to your 12 year old girl? I know I am lucky in that my boys love Disney, and desire to go back even at the ages of 19,and 17. Magic Kingdom was not princess oriented when we began visiting. It wasn't gender specific, it was movie specific, but not really gender specific if that makes sense.

I never thought of any land as being geared toward a specific gender...but geared toward imagination and fantasy on the whole. They can now officially change the name from "fantasy land" to "princess world"

I am actually a little bitter over it.

Its all about marketing...
they have watched the numbers..the princesses are not just a fad any more- they have moved beyond a trend also. Even though I have one( aprincess)- I think the merchandising went overboard a couple years ago- and wished that Disney could split thier focus...I think that they are watching the Fairies very closely...to see if the investment in Pixie Hollow would be a wise one.- and become tradition.
Totally agree there should be more for the boys....but also agree that ALOT of the other Lands are geared for them already.

I just want them to bring the Epcot parade back rolleyes no investment in building needed. cool

Thanks for the overlay angela....cool to see.

Well, if we think about this economically.....

Princesses = $$$
Princes, not so much!

There's the business decision in a nutshell.

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.

You took the words right out of my mouth! Enough with the princesses already......when are they going to add a heros meal or something?

Enough is enough.

Well, the pirate makeover thingy they have planned is a start. That sounds kinda cool.
Though that will appeal to the little girls too.
I want villans.
I want Heros!

There are so many untapped characters. Incredibles, Hercules, Tarzan, look at all the great side kicks....you know, the ones that really MAKE the movies great....so much more than princesses.

Okay, somehow missed this whole thread. I'm also not digging the Princess overload - How about "Captain Jackland" for those of us that aren't preschool girls? grin
