      DuffyD, the only branding of Starbucks I've seen is on the cups. The maps do say serving Starbucks coffee. So far they did a great job of bring in a brand name with out loosing the theming. I do wish the cups were more Disneyish. Because you see them when guest walk around. It's not the worst thing, I'm really being picky with that point. What I wish is they do an period themed SB/Disney logo so it's special.

      Aimster thanks for the photos. I can't wait till everything is open. Duffy wants to try all the new rides.

        We went to the Enchanted Tales with Belle twice. My husband was a suit of armor both times. He didn't want to the 2nd time, but they randomly picked him anyway.

        My daughter was the horse both times.
        It was fun watching them.

          The only thing yet to open is the Dwarfs Mine Coaster, which opens next year. Everything else officially opened back in December of last year.

            We didn't go to the Christmas party to see it; however, there is supposed to be a dragon that arises over New Fantasyland at night.

              That's not picky; it's obvious and expected, as it should be. Hopefully it's in the pipeline.^^

              I have to admit, new Fantasyland kicks Tokyo Fantasyland's bottom, though a lot of the Little Mermaid stuff looks "on loan" from TDS. It is truly fantastic, and every bit as good as DisneySEA from the photos. Thanks, Aimster.^^

              Tokyo needs to take that on, and also deal with Tomorrowland. I saw someone in the MiceChat TDR boards talking about a rumored CARSland redesign for TDL Westernland or Critter Country. That would seem, to me, to take a distant backseat to the overhaul of Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.

              It would be especially cool if - in some last ditch effort - Tomorrowland was somehow heavily sponsored by SONY and had some kind of tie-in to KH3, released as a PS4 exclusive. SONY needs something that reminds the world what SONY is, the same way that Disney in America needs to remember the magic that it's brand cache is built on. This Fantasyland looks like a significant step in the right direction, though. I wish they would treat Duffy with the same level of commitment, investment, integrity and respect.

                The dragon was a one time thing for the opening of New Fantasyland and only appeared the night before when the park was only open for VIPs. I thought this was pretty crappy, especially considering they teased it for quite a while before hand.

                  Aimster's 1st photo is of the entrance to Storybook Circus. Just to the left of the entrance, some clowns set up and put on a show. Some amazing feats with just a few boards. How anyone makes a makeshift table, out of 3 planks, on which they stand is beyond me. They do some cool juggling too.

                  We ate at Be Our Guest for lunch. There is a long line. The line is to get through the "complicated if you aren't good with iPhones" menu ordering system. I, of course, stepped up to do the ordering for 5 meals. I, (also) of course, am a complete spaz when it comes to electronics. It took forever.

                  We ate in the West Wing. It was creepy in there. Saw a hidden Mickey in the tattered cloth that hangs from the ceiling. When lightening strikes, the portrait on the wall changes from man to beast. Cool LED flower loses petals too.

                  The ball room is nice. The library is the best room, IMO.

                  The pathway to meet Ariel and ride her ride is lined with sea shells in the concrete. Pretty nice to look at while in the queue.

                    Thanks, Naelyan. We were there then, which is why we heard about it. I didn't know it was a one-time thing.

                    I am so totally jonesing to go there. Why is it soooooooooooooooo expensive?

                      Yeah that dragon was a one time PR thing for a press event for the "mommy bloggers" (genera public was not invited). Really bad show since they teased about it on the blog for weeks beforehand.

                      FYI, when you exit the Little Mermaid ride, once you get back outside, there's a hidden Steamboat Willie in the rocks on the right hand side by the water. You have to stand at a certain spot and then line up the rocks, but once you see it, it's really cool.

                        I didn't quite see the hidden nautilus in the photo posted earlier.

                          New Fantasyland looks so cool! Since I am a Beauty and the Beast fanatic I would absolutely love to see all those things. Looks like you had a fun time aimster. Love all your pictures. Keep up the good work!

                            We still haven't eaten at Be Our Guest yet. We decided to wait until some of the crowd dies down. (If that ever happens!:lol

                                  It's hard to get a photo of the hidden Steamboat Willie due to the way it's set up.

                                    Today we went to Osceola County Stadium (home of the Houston Astros) for a Spring Training game! We are Atlanta Braves fans, and they were playing today. Duffy came along to cheer on our home team! They won 14-9. And we had great seats behind home plate!

                                      I got a tip for you to make the front of Duffy's baseball cap look more normal. Take a paper towel, fold it in half the long way twice, then roll it up tight and stick it under the front of the cap.

                                        That's funny. I guess the cap does look a little odd in the chair picture, but especially the first one and the last two, I was thinking these are the best Duffy baseball photos ever!:yea: I think it's the color and light that's doin' it for me, though it could also be because I'm from Georgia…:unsure: Anyway, that uniform is great! Nice shots, Naelyan!^^
