Walt Disney World is a busy place these days. There is so much Disney news coming out of Florida! Let’s start at Epcot. Test Track is being renovated. The new sponsor is Chevrolet. The queue will be completely new. You will be introduced to Chevrolet in the queue. As you walk through you will learn how Chevrolet designs cars. There will be sketches to look at. You will see models that no one has seen before. In the design studio you can actually design your test drive. The design you make will follow you through the ride. Your design will be scored as you move through the ride. It will be very interactive. I can’t wait to see the new Test Track in person!
This week has some fun Disney news from the new Fantasyland. Disney released an artist’s rendering of Ariel’s Grotto! This is the area where you will meet Ariel. She will be appearing in her mermaid form! It will be nice to visit with Ariel the Mermaid again. Ariel’s Grotto will be near Prince Eric’s Castle. The castle sits at the top of a cliff. The grotto will be at the base of the cliff. It will be located separately from the attraction Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid. The new Ariel’s Grotto will be open for previews on November 19, 2012. The grand opening is on December 6, 2012.
Disney has created a new meet and greet experience with Belle. The experience is called Enchanted Tales With Belle. It will be located in The Beast’s Castle in the new Fantasyland. Here is some of the latest Disney news about this amazing character meet and greet opportunity.
When you enter Beast’s Castle you will be greeted by Madame Wardrobe. You may remember her from the movie Beauty and the Beast. She will invite you to help her re-tell the story of when Beauty met the Beast. Lumier also makes an appearance. He welcomes you to Beast’s Library. You will meet Belle in the library. She will be surprised to see all of you. She will enjoy listening to you tell her a story. It all sounds so wonderful and fun! I think Disney has created an amazing interactive experience here. I am anxious for more Disney news on the new Fantasyland.
One of my favorite Disney seasons is approaching. I love the Fall in Walt Disney World! It is time for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom. This year Disney is introducing some new entertainment at the party. It is called The Not So Scary Street Jam. This line dance happens on Main Street U.S.A. It is one of the Boo To You Parade pre-shows. The dance starts after the headless horseman goes by. It is an interactive line dance. You will be invited out on to Main Street! Are you ready to dance?
