I think it all sounds really exciting.

Yes, I keep waiting to hear about Mickey & Minnie's houses. They didn't mention it at all yet I keep hearing that they're not being destroyed - they're going to show up somewhere. Where is just anybody's guess :)

The nerve of them! LOL But I do understand. While some of these newer items won't be ready for a few years, I really don't think we'll see a lot of Fantasyland out of commission. I think they're going to keep most of it as active as possible despite all the construction.

I know DD is over the moon about the Belle stuff.

I think all the stuff sounds really neat although I can't quite wrap my head around the coaster concept since they keep saying it's new technology and never been done (or at least that is how I'm reading it)...I can't imagine how swaying cars haven't been done before (of course, my first thought the coasters that have the tracks above them and they swing but it says MILD coaster so I don't think that's it nor does the artist drawing support that idea).

From the video of the castle with the Making Memories -- it's "eh" but I am not really a big fan of those type of things anyway so it's probably more me than anything or the video just doesn't capture the aweness of it I guess.

Oh, wow - I thought the video of the Making Memories on the Castle was amazing! When I first heard about it and saw concept pics of it, I really wasn't impressed at all. But they are doing such amazing things with colors, lighting, and special effects - I can't wait to see it in person :)

Melissa - I completely agree with you! While I'm sure that I'll like the Disney changes, We have a trip planned for June with my almost 3 year-old, and it seems they're taking some of the best stuff for him out for now. It makes me sad because DH and I went alone last time but spent most of the trip talking about how much DS would love this stuff, and now it won't be there.
