  • [Question] Sword in the Stone

    Hello folks.

    Long time lurker, first time poster, and just got back from another week at the resort. 4th time in two years, not too bad for a canadian. The crowds! oh my gosh! I suppose I've been spoiled by usually going between Jan - Mar.

    Anyway, I was justwondering if anyone heard any rumours about the sword in the stone in front of the carousel. I know the Merlin performance has been discontinued for quite some time now, and the little activation lights in the window above Peter Pan have been off for the same time.

    However, when I was there oct 8-15, The red light was on. I asked a Cm if they knew anything about the sword working again, and they said that completely at random, the sword will be allowed to be pulled out. They also mentioned that there is an iphone app in the works, that will have people go through various places in the parks, finding clues, and answering question on the app, that will culminate at the sword, and the final thing will be you pulling out the sword.



    My apologies if this has been brought up. I did a search but didn't find anything very relavent.

    Thanks
    Just sayin'

        RDDU: Hello MSCguy, duckling! We don't know about Disneyland's Sword in the Stone Ceremony but we do know Florida's Magic Kingdom Sword in the Stone Ceremony has come back to Fantasyland in a minor way--without Merlin being a part of it any longer.

        ORWEN: Yes, they now have the Fantasyland minstrels performing the ceremony at random. It's much shorter than it used to be when Merlin was in charge of it. The quartett of minstrels just start playing a song from the Sword in the Stone--'That's What Makes the World Go 'Round' and that's everybody's clue that the ceremony is about to begin.

        ORDDU: We were surprised to find out about the return of the ceremony--minus Merlin--when we first found out about it a few months ago. We hope that Disneyland follows Walt Disney World's example and we really do hope they bring Merlin backto both parks because there are enough unemployed magicians these days--the world's economy being what it is...

          Wow, thats interesting. I had no idea.
          So, does that mean without merlin, do the minstrels come out playing and there is just a mad scramble for the sword?

            I wonder if this will be Disneyland's version of Sorcerors of the Magic Kingdom.

              ORDDU: Hello again, duckling. The way they do the Sword in the Stone ceremony in Florida isn't as magical as it used to be.

              ORWEN: Without Merlin it falls kind of flat. But one little duckling is still chosen from the audience to become 'ruler of the realm'. It all happens so fast it's seems over before it began.

                        Interestingly enough, friends of ours just posted a similar pic on their Facebook page last week showing the husband pulling the sword out of the stone. I thought maybe they had restarted the ceremony for the Halloween/Christmas season. Darn, wish I'd tried to pull it when we were there in Sept, but I thought I'd look like a dork if I tried.

                        Hey, one of you local APers-run over to the park right now & give it a tug, then report back.

                          As mentioned above, it's an app that is being tested, and the app unlocks the sword.
                          It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

                            Hmmm, our friend doesn't have a Sword in the Stone app. I wonder how he was able to pull the sword out. Guess he was just there at the right time;

                            Ah-HA! Here we go;

                            Per MSCGuy: "However, when I was there oct 8-15, The red light was on. I asked a Cm if they knew anything about the sword working again, and they said that COMPLETELY AT RANDOM, the sword will be allowed to be pulled out. They also mentioned that there is an iphone app IN THE WORKS, that will have people go through various places in the parks, finding clues, and answering question on the app, that will culminate at the sword, and the final thing will be you pulling out the sword".

                            (Capitalization is mine.) Thanks MSCGuy-Guess I didn't read your post carefully enough, so despite our friend insisting he IS the rightful King of the Kingdom, he's just some random dude, after all.

                              Ohhhhh....this all makes me very happy and excited and I hope, hope, hope that I can have the opportunity to watch my kids actually pull the sword out next time that we go; especially with all the other times they've been unable to - it would be "magical", to say the least..

                              Where are said lights exactly?
