i'm a bit shocked by the princesses to say the least. I think a lot of people will be upset by this, surely the kids are going to question why Cinderella doesn't look like she does in the film?

Will Disco Yeti be getting a makeover?

I wonder if the new 'dos will be an option for the princesses, rather than a full-time new look. (Let's not forget how many different outfits Mickey has!)

I would give a handshake to Tom Hanks and I would tell him that he is my favorite actor. That is if security don't catch me first :^p

Princesses looking like Britney Spears? :^0

Obviously Disney didn't talk to educators or child psychologists. Children from second grade to younger do not handle change well. As one who has been in the education field for over ten years, I can assure you that this will not go over well. I have seen kindgergarten aged children burst into tears if one little change has happened. My own son who is in kindergarten refused a toy of a superhero because the costume did not look like the one in the movie. He claimed that this was not the real hero. The older girls will like this, but the younger ones will not believe that these are the real princesses.

Why not actually put forth this change towards attractions? Why not update the last scene in Carousel of Progress? Why not fix the Yeti? I could go on and on. There are so many other ways to spend this energy, money and time.

I kind of feel the same way about the effects of character change on the young. But do you actually believe that the cost of these hairdos would be enough to "fix" either COP or the Yeti? That is just unrealistic to say the least.

Mark, I know that the cost is not equal. My point is, there are more important changes that need to be made instead of focusing in on a new hairstyle for a fictional character. I just see this as a waste of time.

Why does WDW strike me as not getting "it" when it comes to show? Star Wars dance off for example. Most of the characters are... bad when it comes to dancing. Reeks of trying too hard.

Why would you give modern hairstyles and clothes to the Disney Princesses since that's not what they wear in the movies? Why don't we just give Genie a backwards facing cap, an Ed Hardy Shirt, and his name tattooed across his knuckles while we're at it? Or maybe I can get a pic with Jersey Shore Belle?

Ok so that's an exaggeration. But that would be like giving Aladdin a suit and tie, or have Prince Charming ride in on a Harley.
