    No reason why the forest can't extend to the shore. We just can't see the ocean cuz it's behind the berm...

    I rathr have a new marvel park be built as opposed to it being at DHS

    While the Little Mermaid at WDW will be a clone, and while DCA's version will undoubtedly have a beautifully detailed exterior, I prefer the ride being situated in Fantasyland and having Eric's castle for the exterior.

    It'll look amazing but there's not much substance there.

    ORDDU: Way back when we first heard rumors that a Little Mermaid attraction would be coming to Florida's Fantasyland, that's all we expected. Now that they've decided to announce the extra meetings and greetings--even though they're not attractions per sey--it all comes across like a cake with some unexpected frosting. So it's hard for us to complain. Yes, more attractions would be nice for Fantasyland. But in this current economic climate, we'll have to be satisfied with just the one E ticket type attraction, it would seem. It's certainly better than nothing and at least this one, large attraction is a step in the right direction.

    ORDDU: It often seems that there is over-kill on so many different characters from time to time. For a while it was Winnie the Pooh. Then it was Capt. Jack Sparrow. Now it's the princesses. But no one ever complains about there being too much of Mickey Mouse, do they? In any case, these cycles come and go. We try not to let the latest fad lessen our appreciation for all the other characters that seem to be over-looked.

    ORWEN: I'm just glad we have the Disney theme parks to begin with. So many adventures are around every corner. Not everything is going to appeal to us but there are still enough things that DO appeal to us that it's always worth a visit.

    ORDDU: Disney World does a good job of having plenty to appeal to both sexes so there's no justification for complaints over such issues. Let the good times happen for everybody.

    Mermaid will be an exact clone of the one going to DCA. The only difference is the exterior.

    Yeah I believe Mermaid will be a clone, but the exterior will be TOTALLY different than DCA's... WDW will get Prince Eric's castle, which will tie in nicely in Fantasyland (whereas DCA's seaside pier facade will be a perfect match for the Paradise Pier area).

    Notice how they left out the "Cinderellas Prom" and "Auroras Hallmark Crafts Adventure". WDI KNOWS that Belles Village and Mermaid is what is going to be the strongest points with all guests.
