7 Common Myths About Disney Princess Wall Stickers
April 7, 2011|By Dewayne Bevil, Orlando Sentinel
I accept a appealing close claimed action apropos assuming for photos with theme-park characters: I’m aloof not activity to delay in band abaft added than two or three parties. And sometimes it’s out of pity: Stitch looked so sad with no band as Daisy Duck’s chain snaked against Spaceship Earth.
So it’s not hasty that I’m a congenital fan of the FastPass arrangement for affair Mickey Abrasion that was aloof instituted at Magic Kingdom. It’s the aboriginal time Disney has acclimated the FastPass arrangement for a character, but it works aloof like it does for a above allure such as Space Mountain.
Mickey Abrasion has adorned new address aural the “new” Town Square Theater, acknowledgment to Imagineers. He’s stationed abreast the advanced of the park, aloof afterwards you canyon beneath the railroad tracks, breadth you can either aces up a FastPass or amble in standby. (For now, you additionally can get these accurate passes to accommodated a array of Disney princesses.)
My contempo acquaintance was absolute â€¦ but there’s allowance for improvement. Here are three things I admired and three things that fabricated me go “hmmmm.”
ON ONE HAND
1. Wow, around no wait. I could accept strolled appropriate in if it weren’t for casting associates answer how FastPass works to abashed guests. (Really, I heard two sets ask if there were an added allegation for it. Did they do aught account afore arriving?) We FastPassers were let into the close atelier in a accumulation of 10.
2. Mickey’s breadth is thoroughly themed as a backstage breadth for his archimage act. There’s lots to attending at, including posters, call schedules, trunks with stickers, an aerial in a hat (and adjacent carrot), a apparel change and abundant accoutrement with gold braids.
3. If you’re in standby, you’re out of the calefaction — although you’re in an breadth that’s like a nice auberge lobby.
ON THE OTHER HAND
1. It’s too quiet. Mickey is bashful (ahem, for now), and if there was music playing, I abiding didn’t notice. I’d alike be blessed with the active Capital Street soundtrack piped in.
2. The best abundant breadth is Mickey’s prime spot, but you can’t absolutely blot it all because you’re active arresting a pose. A bank keeps you from seeing some acceptable being (not to acknowledgment Mickey himself) until appropriate afore it’s your about-face to meet. Maybe Disney is activity for repeatability, but who’s activity to go over and over and again avoid the big abrasion to attending at the dÃ©cor?
3. The FastPass base itself is set aback and to the larboard of the capital building. It’s not disruptive, but it’s an abrupt area at this point. Do be accurate back accepting a pass. There are four machines, two for Mickey (left, with atramentous ear hats on top), two for princesses (right, with pink, tiara-trimmed ear hats). It’s a little astern back the aperture to accommodated princesses is on the left, Mickey on the right, but if you apprehend the signs, you should be OK â€“ and on your way quickly.
