    My family is considering a trip for Sept 2012. Our daughter's (she's 5) favorite princess is Belle - is there any chance the Beauty and the Beast parts of the Fantasyland expansion will be open then or should we wait?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Brian!  We're super glad you're hEAR!

    The Fantasyland Expansion is indeed exciting and I can hardly wait!!! But I guess I'll have to find a way.

    I so wish I could tell you for sure and it looks like they are making great progress on this project. Unfortunately, no specific dates are being given for the opening of the attractions in Fantasyland.  The Disney Parks Blog is reporting that the expanded Fantasyland is scheduled to open in phases, beginning in late 2012 with most new experiences open by 2013.

    Here's what I'd do - I'd hold off on making my decision right now. As we get into 2012, we should hopefully get a better idea of when attractions will be begin to open. We may also get a better idea of a completion time frame. When Disney gives everyone a better idea of where things stand, you'll be able to make a decision and still have time to plan your trip.

    For updates on this awesome project, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Disney World Official Facebook Page.  If you're on twitter, follow @DisneyParks and @WaltDisneyWorld.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
