Welcome to 1995 Disney!

You cannot tell me I'm the only one who hears the similarities!

Hi, just for the record, I'm brand new here, so don't mind any stupid posts for my first couple weeks of membership! ;)

I haven't been to Disney since '03 or '04, and I'll say, I remember Space Mountain as being one of the original coasters I've ever ridden, and the most I remember was running rampant in the dark. :?r

Still, the next time budget allows a trip to Orlando, I'll definetly be sure to put Space Mountain down on what to ride on my trip!

Thanks for this construction update Erik. I really need a TPR Florida parks tour to catch up on everything that's been built since I was last in the area in 1989. :lol:

If you’re visiting Magic Kingdom Park this week, you’ll be the first to see a series of new enhancements to The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. The changes begin with a re-designed load area and a re-imagined gift shop called Hundred Acre Goods specializing in apparel, toys, plush characters and collectibles featuring Pooh and his friends.

Also this week, the attraction entrance will be temporarily relocated to the FASTPASS return lane while enhancements continue on several interactive elements being added to the queue. And beginning Thanksgiving week, young guests will start their adventure through the Hundred Acre Wood by jumping with Tigger, crawling through Eeyore’s house and playing in Rabbit’s garden before they board the attraction. And there’s more to come, with new elements debuting throughout the next month.

These enhancements will have a temporary impact on FASTPASS distribution which will not be available until the enhanced queue opens. Soon, we’ll resume FASTPASS distribution for The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at Mickey’s PhilharMagic where it will remain during Fantasyland’s expansion.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!

Guess this is a "next generation queue," like what the blueprints on Pg 1 talk about.

What is this, Joisey?

Ugh, I can't believe I'm about to say this.... but looks like I'll have to take a trip over to Magic Kingdom sometime soon to check out Pooh.

Personally, I'm more interested to see what's going on with the Haunted Mansion's queue... but seeing as I haven't done Pooh in years I guess it won't kill me to give it a go.

Did my donkey title just change???

The walls were down a couple days ago, but had bushes blocking the entrances so the kids couldn't play on anything. Overall, it looked interesting, but not much there for 50 kids in line. It all seemed to be close to the entrance and not much past the first little bit. It looks much better and anything is a welcome addition to entertain the kids. We forgot the camera at the house, so no pictures to post.

It looks pretty much like the drawing. The tree right by the entrance, the Tigger bounce spot by the first curve, and a larger garden area across the fence (coming back from Tigger) with different items. I don't recall the second tree on the right. Between the fence and the log on the right is the fastpass entrance.

The new queue opened on Friday. However, there are many interactive elements still missing that will be added over course of the next month.
- Come visit me at Test Track, Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth in EPCOT over at WDW, I would love to meet some more TPR members!
