    Fantasyland Expansion opening just announced. It states Dec 6 will be the official opening, but there will be a "soft" opening beginning Nov 19. Who can visit attractions & new restaurants during a "soft" opening? Thanks

    Hello, Patricia!

    The New Fantasyland Expansion is so exciting, especially when Disney announced that there will be a preview of the attractions and experiences in this area beginning on November 19th!

    According to this post by Jennifer Fickley-Baker on Disney Parks Blog, "The preview period gives regular park guests a chance to experience the new area and its attractions prior to the grand opening in December. During a preview period, attractions and experiences may experience limited operating hours."

    If you scroll further down in the comment area on this post, Fickley-Baker states "We’ll begin accepting reservations for Be Our Guest in late August for guests who wish to dine after Nov. 19. Stay tuned for more details!"

    So, "regular park Guests" will be able to enjoy some of these fantastic new attractions, restaurants, shops and experiences. How exciting!
