Yet more new Pooh queue

An empty spot in the Pooh queue right before the honey wall has gotten its game: the "baby toy" type of track with permanently attached toy. You just bring your bee with you through holes and loops. Kids stay entertained, and adults get a reprieve. Win!

It might also be an indication that the restaurants aren't making as much money as they want to (are supposed to? used to?)

See the official DisneyParks blog for the coupon:
