Not sure who it was that made the comment about Fantasyland being more for girls but I totally agree. I have a 7 yr old son who never liked the “traditional” rides (the kid refused to rid Dumbo, even when he was 4!) and of course doesn’t like princesses. We use Fantasyland as a cut-through to get to Toon Town, and that’s about it (except when I make the family ride Small World with me). I do hope that they keep some of the Toon Town attractions though – the over-the-top cartoonishness of it is what my family loves.
My son is SUPER excited about the new Star Tours update though … but he’s leery that they’ll take away some of the things he loves about the current ride. We’ll have to see what happens there.
The imagineers have confirmed that Mickey’s ToonTown Fair will be going away completely.
Also re: The Little Mermaid attraction being an “E” Ticket –
This will be more of a Haunted Mansion or Pirates or Small World E ticket, rather than a Everest or Tower of Terror.
E Ticket denotes scale, scope and immersiveness rather than thrill factor. The ride will be a massively themed omnimover attraction, like the Mansion or SSE, with many state-of-the-art AA figures. Hope this helps.
