What's new at WDW, part 2.....

I recently posted about some of the things that are new at WDW since our last visit, since then I've added to the list:

New Queue for the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

The old front facade and queue for WtP was certainly dated

The new queue is more "organic" and includes interactive elements for the little ones

Magic Memories and You

MMY is a new light/projection show that takes place on Cinderella's Castle each night before the nightly fireworks. There's a giant flat screen that shows images of people while at WDW and detailed projections are placed onto the castle. And for the holiday season they've added projections at include making the castle look like a giant gingerbread house!

Lighted Canopy at the Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights

Similar to what you'd see if you visit Fremont Street in Las Vegas, this new canopy is covered in lights and can dance like the rest of the Osborne Lights. They've also added a few new elements to honor Jennings Osborne who passed away earlier this year (but I'll leave you to find them!)

New Meet and Great Area for Mickey and Minnie

Since Toontown closed earlier this year (*tear*) Mickey, Minnie, the Fairies and the princesses have had to move. Since we aren't into the Fairies I'm not going to get into their new home (it's in Adventureland if you are looking for them!). Both Mickey, Minnie and the princesses have moved to a new location at the front of the Magic Kingdom called the "Town Square Theatre"

The princesses are in one part of the building while M&M are in another. Again we aren't into the princesses either so I can't comment on their new home, but you meet Magician Mickey and his lovely assistant Minnie backstage in his dressing room.

The most unique thing about the Town Square Theatre is that they now offer FastPass for both M&M and the princesses, something that's never been done before for character meet and greets.
