    We already booked to be at MK on 12/6 and now we find out it's the grand opening! What attrations will newly opening that day and how will it affect the normal opening cermony and days events? I want to make sure we have a game plan as I expect crowds!

    Hi Karen,


    We are all excited about the new Fantasyland Expansion opening on December 6th!  How wonderful that you are already going to be there!  The Enchanted Forest has Under the Sea- Journey of the Little Mermaid attraction which you will board a clam shell in Prince Eric's Castle and go on Ariel's journey.  It is a fun, musical attraction which you will just love.  The same attraction is in Disneyland, and my family just finds this ride magical!  The new Be Our Guest restaurant opens as well which will be Quick Service dining for lunch and Table Service dining for dinner.  Enchanted Tales with Belle is a storytale adventure with Belle and Lumiere.  Ariel's Grotto is a wonderful place to take photos with Ariel!
    Storybook Circus is already open and has the Barnstormer, Dumbo The Flying Elephant, and Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station.  I would anticipate that the Magic Kingdom will be very busy this day, so I would make sure you make your Advanced Dining Reservations as soon as possible.  As far as I know, there is no special opening ceremony, but I wouldn't put it past them!  I know your day will be so magical, Karen!
