While I probably wouldn't bother with it, the interactive game does seem like a decent addition...for those that are into that sort of thing.

And I never heard about the BTMR cross ties being removed. Why was that done?

^Supposedly they will be replaced as a part of the larger upcoming refurbishment of the attraction.

These interactive games are popping up everywhere and seem like a lot of fun. I also probably wouldn't take the time to play them but if I was a local and had a chance to visit the park on a regular basis I'd try it out just to see what it is all about. The game isn;t going to be an upcharge is it? Seems like Disney has never been a fan of the upcharge attraction other than special tours.

At first I didn't even notice BTMR was missing it's cross ties in that picture, but after I noticed it it does look a little strange, hopefully they get replaced like Adam said during the rehab.

I'm sure the Fantasyland expansion is going to be great, but I just can't get very excited about it. Hopefully the 7 Dwarves mine coaster will be a surprise hit but my expectations are fairly low for it being anything other than just a fun but fairly tame family coaster.

Can I park my donkey here?

Has anyone been to the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and if so, can you tell me when you can get into the park?

I know in the past that we were able to get in early and wondering if this is still possible.

I'm probably looking at the photo wrong, but how does BTMRR have upstop wheels? It almost looks like the track ties are welded to the bottom of the rails instead of the sides like the typical "Arrow-style" track.

But enough being a nerd. Hopefully they powerwash all of that dirt that's accumulated under those old ties!

The new interactive game sounds like it could be fun but It would probably be one of the last things I would do at the park. To many other things that I like to do.

My parents did this a couple weeks ago when they went. They had never done any of the events, and loved it!

I very much like this event, but I do prefer Halloween Party. Probably because I like Halloween more than Christmas, but they're both very solid events.

One thing to note, this year they had fresh, soft Snickerdoodle cookies instead of the past years terrible sugar cookies. As many as you can eat all included in the price...YUM!!!!
