It's a classic and on one hand I am going to miss it, but on the other the technology is quite dated and I am very confident the new attraction will be a show stopper.

I forgot today is the last day, so I just changed my plans and am heading out to MK to take one more ride!

I remember riding that ride when I went to Disney as a 4 year old

I'm gonna miss it because it was one of my first rides I rode at MK. On the other hand, the mine train seems better then SWSA.

I thought this was one of the worst rides in the park. I will not miss it at all. Looking forward to the Mine Train!

Still wish it had been converted into another ride, instead of a meet and greet as the net gain for all the fantasyland expansion is 1 ride and 1 splash pad

I'm amazing at the explosion of meet and greets popping up at the disney parks. I guess it makes sense, my niece loves visiting the fairies in Pixie Hollow at Disneyland. But I hate seeing the old standards going to Yesterland.

@dom what second ride

Adding little mermaid and mine train

Barnstormer just rethemed

Dumbo moved and added capcity not a new ride

Lost Snow White...that's a net of one ride

Plus got Casey Splash area but lost a chip and dale play area (granted it was bad)

Lost mickey and minnie houses also

Even though alot of people didn't care for Snow White(I am not one of them). Replacing it with a meet-n-greet is a travesty. They could have a least brought back Mr. Toad to that space.

I guess some might say that Harry Potter land only had a "net gain" of one ride (the other rides were already there)..... but look how much praise that new land got.

I'm excited to see the extra space and real trees amongst the new rides and buildings as well.

One of the things I will remember about this ride was how much it caught a lot of kids and adults by surprise, especially before it was renamed to Snow Whites Scary Adventures or whatever.

When we rode it when I was younger it was almost like a going through a ride through haunted house where the witch kept jumping out at you.... some younger kids did not neccessarily find being stalked by a witch a barrel of fun. My friend's little sister supposedly screamed so loudly during the ride that they could hear her outside the building!

I will always remember riding this ride, but I am really excited about the upcoming Mine Train ride.

Gosh. Such a classic ride. I'm only 19 years but still this was one of my favorite Fantasyland rides up until now! I just love the design of the little cars squeaking along down the track through the doors and past the scenes. For some reason, the first 10 seconds of the ride was one of my favorites, the part before you go into the building! I just thought the little turns every direction were fun. My other favorite part was going through the swamp with the noises and gator etc. I'm truly going to miss this ride. Unfortunately, my last ride was back in February of 2011. We live a good distant from Florida. I'm going to miss it, but I know the new coaster is going to be really neat!

Mermaid will be at a place that once stands "2000L under the sea", so it is ZERO additions.

But off course there will be a quality gain.

Meeting the princesses is great for the little girls, however, my 5 year old son has zero interest in that. I really think the location would best be served as a ride, either snow white or a new ride. We will be walking right past every time as it stands now.

I went on it on the 28th and I think it is a mistake. They should keep the classic Fantasyland Dark ride. Why not get ride of Peter Pan, the most inefficient ride in all of WDW (I know, but I can wish).

Enough with the Princess stuff!
