Magic Kingdom Update: Flynn Rider and Repunzel “Tangled” Play and Greet, it’s a small world Re Opened, Fort Wilderness: Halloween Time – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We’ve been busy the last few days, including our visit to the new Tangled “Play and Greet” at the Magic Kingdom (below, left). It is located where Storytime with Belle used to be in the Fairytale Garden. Flynn Rider and Rapunzel pose for guests while we waited in line to be let into the next meet-and-greet (below, right).

The experience starts with about 50 guests being let into the Fairytale Garden area (below, left). When you are let in, Flynn and Rapunzel are not there yet – guests are given crayons (featuring the Tangled artwork) and paper to work on while waiting (below, right). This is more of a children’s activity, but a lot of adults participate too. After 5 or so minutes, everyone stops crayoning and gets ready for Rapunzel and Flynn Rider to show up for a dance around the table after a warm welcome. We were really impressed by this meet-and-greet!

We were given a plush of the character Pascal to hold for photos (below, left) before he was passed to the next guest. Our Tangled crayons and paperwork had gone unused so far (below, right). They were a nice bonus!

Video #1 – Rapunzel and Flynn Rider from Tangled, Magic Kingdom Play and Greet Welcome 10/24/10 – Rapunzel and Flynn Rider welcome everyone to their meet and greet, then dance with the kids. Get there early if you want to be part of this!

Rapunzel signs an autograph for a guest (below, left). Over at Epcot, Flynn and Rapunzel also have a meet-and-greet that is currently in front of World Showplace (below, right).

Video #2 – Rapunzel and Flynn Rider Magic Kingdom, Flynn Teaches “The Smolder” 10/24/10 – This new meet and greet (“play and greet“) at the Magic Kingdom was a lot of fun, I even learn how to do “The Smolder” from Flynn Rider himself!.

it’s a small world looks like it’s been nicely freshened up (below, left) and the queue now is in the opposite direction – the wheelchair queue is where the regular guest entrance had been previously (below, right). We thought it worked out quite well.

The boats are loading from the left, except for wheelchair loading from the right (below, left). We thought the interior seemed brighter too (below, right).

Two more photos of the boarding, taken from different locations (below left and right).

Over at Fort Wilderness, campers have used their imaginations to come up with wonderful Halloween displays! Ghosts hover (below, left) while the hitchhiking ghosts take a break from the Haunted Mansion to scare up some fun at the Fort (below, right).

Minnie Mouse takes a bubble bath while vampire Mickey wishes everyone a Happy Halloween (below, left), and a castle with a grim reaper bids us to keep moving (below, right).

The piece de resistance is an incredible display by someone who camps at Fort Wilderness each year (at least for the last few years), and does great Halloween and Christmas displays!  The area looks great during the daytime, but it almost seemed like a Halloween wonderland at night, with beautiful lights and Halloween decor everywhere (below left and right).

Video #3 – Halloween Decorations at Fort Wilderness, Walt Disney World 10/24/10 – Halloween decorations from two campers light up the sidewalks, and this video starts with the Haunted Halloween Carriage Ride going by.
