Thank you, been lurking for years, but never really had something to say.
I am also thinking the castle might be the pitstop. We only have an hour show to fit everything. Still wondering if they drive or take another form of transportation to Germany.
I'm thinking so far it's:
get to Germany
RBlock - gnome curling
detours - beard or gingerbread
make way to castle, maybe they have to find Phil in one of the rooms.
