    I heard today the new Fantasyland will open December 6th. Our vacation ends December 1st. :(. The article mentioned ride previews begin November 19 th. What exactly does that mean? We are so disappointed to miss it by five days. :(

    Hello, Margaret!

    Not to worry! You'll probably be able to get a sneak peek at some of the New Fantasyland Expansion during your upcoming stay at Walt Disney World!

    The official New Fantasyland Grand Opening has been announced on DisneyParksBlog; keep checking back for more exciting information as it becomes available as updates are sure to be posted frequently. Previews of attractions often occur prior to these Grand Openings so that Imagineers and Cast Members alike can adjust some minor aspects of an attraction to better accommodate Guests. Most likely, you'll be there during some really exciting events, although none of this will be scheduled "in stone."

    Take a look at one of my favorite unofficial Disney sites,, for additional information and reviews as well. Keep checking back to, as well as Disney Parks Blog for updates prior to your departure. As with any construction, dates can move up if the work has been completed sooner than expected, so any of these dates are subject to change.

    No matter what, you're sure to see a bit of magic when you travel the Magic Kingdom this fall! Enjoy!
