- Dave  13496.2 #2 10:25AM
Yes please, dying to find out if they will still be doing this when I bring mads back! - madsdad  1868.2 #92 10:27AM
YES!!! - Armenda  1159.7 #152 10:28AM
Yes! - BettyPoop  237.5 #1500 10:28AM
does it unlock after closing? - BooEve123  800.9 #232 10:28AM
I have known for a couple of months now that Merlin is coming back this summer for the first time in several years and will be doing daily sword in the stones shows once again in Fantasyland... I wasn't allowed to say anything but since this was posted I thought it was ok to do so..I told admin about it a long time ago, he can verify the news I told him months ago and that I am not just making this up because of this event...based on the timing I have an idea of what they were doing there and why....truly a magical moment for those kids and cant wait this summer for more kids to get the sword pulled out of the stone - Dave   13496.2 #2 10:30AM
that is so awesome! I'm not gonna tell mads since she tries every visit to pull the sword out, it would freak her out if it actually came out! I'm at work laughing thinking about it lol! - madsdad  1868.2 #92 10:31AM
verrrrry interesting - BooEve123  800.9 #232 10:32AM
ah very cool thanks for sharing dave, i can't wait to pull out the sword this summer to claim the lumpia kingdom forever. - chris.  2511.4 #57 10:32AM
Yaaaay! I was so sad when they stopped doing the shows. It seemed like a waste of the sword mechanism. Glad it's coming back. - BettyPoop  237.5 #1500 10:34AM
That's so awesome! I can't wait to see the look on the kids faces when the sword is actually pulled out. Thanks for the news Dave! 😄 - Aurora_2020  263.9 #1223 10:35AM
woo hoo cannot wait for this to come back, loved it as a kid - Villescas8  606.9 #336 10:36AM
you have to remember that not every kid gets to pull it out. its a ceremony where Merlin chooses a kid to pull it out during several shows throughout the day - Dave   13496.2 #2 10:37AM
Yup!!! - vickythedisneylover  1.3 #64826 10:37AM

Woah! How cool! - CherryTreeLane  460.4 #472 12:40AM
wow! what happened afterwards? how exciting and memorable  - MaidMiriam  308.0 #871 12:42AM
It went back in and we all celebrated! Then more kids tried - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 12:45AM
I did this when I was younger! I got a medal and a certificate. It was when they had Merlin out there doing a show for it. I still remember doing it and that was at least 15 years ago! Merlin would come around with a Y shaped stick and it would "magically" point to whoever was meant to pull the sword out of the stone. - kayceeb  167.3 #2450 12:43AM
This is nuts! I want to know the story here! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 12:51AM
There really is no story. We were walking past, heard an odd noise, and saw a kid pull it out. Then we saw another kid do it immediately after and so we stopped and watched and filmed and celebrated and had our lives completed - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 12:56AM
So Merlin wasn't there during this whole thing? That's weird, I've never seen the Sword come out without Merlin present. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 12:54AM
Was there even a noticible CM around? This is just crazy... And after midnight at that! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 12:56AM
There was a group of CMs but we couldn't really figure out who exactly was doing it - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 12:59AM
That's awesome. I'm so jelly - Bambi.  605.0 #338 1:02AM
Two words.... TRULY MAGICAL!!!!!!!!!!! ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 1:03AM
That is so cool to see again.. been 20 years for me :)  Got to watch in complete jealousy as my 8 year old sister got to pull the sword out during the full gig with Merlin and a mini parade! - TheBudd  357.3 #653 1:15AM
I know the feeling!!! My little sis got picked too!!! I was sooooo jealous!!! - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 1:19AM
Simply incredible!!! - Willierose  2348.6 #67 1:46AM
sooo awesome and so much fun to have witnessed this with fellow MWers! totally made my day! - crustle  782.8 #237 1:59AM
Very cool! I bet the kid was so excited I know I would be😃 - DSNYCheeks3  866.1 #216 10:28AM
I agree - vickythedisneylover  1.3 #64826 10:41AM
This is awesome! I don't remember seeing this as a kid so seeing it this summer would be a dream come true - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #208 10:49AM
