I've heard at least one person complain that the books should not be in their original (non English) languages because the theme of MK is "Americana". I totally disagree. Fantasyland isn't Americana at all. Last I looked we don't have castle's like you'd see in the middle of the park, Snow White, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, etc, AREN'T American stories.

Anybody have a problem with this or is this yet another overraction by Disney nerds?


I'm sorry. I can't process what you just said. If I read the words on the screen correctly, you're indicating that somewhere on the internet, someone has said that they don't want the original language version of fairy tales re-told/butchered by the Walt Disney Corporation because, somehow, they have become "Americana". If that is correct, this person or persons, whoever or whomever they maybe, would the dumbest and wrongest human beings ever to grace Earth. I thus will have to believe that I did not read this and go on with my evening, and hopefully, my life, without ever reflecting again on the possibility that I read exactly that here today.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This ride looks great, yet it's being sneered at as a 'D-ticket' ride that took too long to build on certain Disney fansites. I can't wait to check it out!

^When, of course, 1) they have absolutely no idea what it will actually be like and 2) it replaces an old "C" ticket attraction.

^Exactly. I also think the ride will look great in its location. You will be able to walk about almost the entire ride and it will have a strong visual impact on the expanded Fantasyland.

Well, I do agree that it's taking WAY too long especially considering the rate that Universal is churning out "E-ticket" quality attractions. But I disagree that it's not going to be awesome when it finally does open. I've never understood hating a ride before it even opens.

Sure, anybody could have looked at YOLOcoaster and realized that it was too short but I don't think anybody ever said it wouldn't be fun, and it is. But when it comes to Disney, you know it's going to be quality.

Wonder if Snow White's animatronic hair is going to create controversy too.

^Universal have definitely set an aggressive pace, but that's what market challengers do. It's not an apples to apples comparison though - I can appreciate why something like Be Our Guest would take longer to put together than Moe's Tavern (although both look great).

Sheesh, it's like video game nerds saying that a big-budget video game is a complete failure unless it averages over 90 on Metacritic.

Even half-finished the ride looks really awesome in person. I love how swoopy the track is. Even if the ride was 30 seconds long it looks like it will still be fun.

There's no telling what sort of infrastructure changes needed to be made to completely redo Fantasyland, either. I was surprised at how quiclky Universal ripped out Jaws, though.
