It looks like the breakfast wit the sesame street critters has been eliminated.

The new night time show sounds great. They always seem to have a good show at night at bgw. This has to be one of my favorite parks.

No, the breakfast is hosted in Castle O’ Sullivan. The new shows will be in Abbey Stone Theatre and Corkscrew Hill. The breakfast is still there.

I've gone pantless!

There's no mention of breakfast with the Sesame Street characters on BGW's Web site--all they mention is lunch (and dinner, I suppose).

This doesn't necessarily mean that the breakfast is gone, but I think sticking with lunch and dinner would make more sense. Most families have already had breakfast by the time they hit the park.

Yay! I was right about the nighttime spectacular, though they probably won't do the skating leprechauns. Oh well.

I didn't see it explained anywhere, is the new simulator replacing Corkscrew Hill? If so, I don't know how I feel about that, I've gotten to like Corkscrew Hill.

EDIT* Never mind, it answers my question in the video. I didn't watch all of it.
Just keep swimming...

It mentions breakfast right there under the Jack Hannah thing and the Elmo one.

^Interesting. Seems there are two dining pages, one of which doesn't mention the Elmo breakfast: http://www.buschgardens.com/bgw/Explore/Restaurants.aspx (you have to scroll down and click on "Dine at Castle O'Sullivan).

It will be interesting to see how they manage to change up Corkscrew Hill. Will they change the queue? New screens? New ride platforms?

Hopefully this will be an upgrade from Corkscrew Hill.

This definitely sounds like Soarin' but with a European flare...I think this will be a great addition to BGE's Ireland!

I thought Corkscrew Hill was okay, but it would have nothing on a simulator ride through Europe...especially over Neuschwanstein Castle.

I wondered what all those hang-gliders experienced when I saw them flying over the castle last October. Perhaps I will get to experience a similar trip without having to worry about plunging 2000 feet to my death! :b

Epcot needs to do this with their version of Soarin'.
