Recommended reading: a rather thoughtful (and somewhat creepy) retrospective of the original Snow White's Adventures attraction at Disney World. Makes me further regret that I mostly rode it with my eyes closed as a kid.

Of course, as of late last month, even the "Scary" replacement version has ceased to exist. It wasn't by any means my favorite attraction, but the loss is still kind of unfortunate... There are, after all, few remaining places in Disney World with that cheesy, old-fashioned feel - the plywood cutouts, the clackety cars, the soft, electric hum of the bus bar...

But the relentless march of the Disney Princesses, it cannot be stopped. C'est la vie. I only wish they counted Alice. ;P

They discontinued the Scary Adventures of Snow White? This saddens me. Did they replace it with something else?

Have you been recently? I can't wait to see the new Fantasyland expansion.

Well, the actual space will soon be occupied by "Princess Fairytale Hall," which is effectively a greeting area for the Disney princess characters. "The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train" (roller coaster), meanwhile, will open later as part of New Fantasyland, and I guess that's intended to be the "replacement in spirit" for the old Snow White ride.

And it's been a few months since I've been (my pass is blacked out for much of the summer season), but they did have a bit of the circus-themed area open last time. It was... okay. Nothing much to see still.

I do find that one particularly interesting, since it's a ride concept they thought up and shelved back when the movie first came out (remember the virtual ride-through on the Little Mermaid DVD?)...

All of New Fantasyland should be pretty cool, though, once they finally finish it. If nothing else, it should beat the pants off Avatarland.
