    well im not a mom but i am a dad that is gravely disappointed. I love disney and everything about disney and so does my family. We have booked our family vacation (our kids christmas present) to come to disney world and dumbo is closed? why the change???

    Hi Bryan!! 

    I am glad, as a dad, that I can help another dad in this situation!!  I can totally understand your concern with Dumbo being closed on your visit. 

    I see that you are arriving to the Walt Disney World Resort on February 25, 2012.  Well, I have good news...you are correct that Dumbo is currently closed for refurbishment/being moved, but on February 18, 2012 Dumbo is slated to reopen!!  The current Dumbo ride that we know and love has closed and will be moved into its new location in the new and improved Fantasyland.  Never fear, there has been a new Dumbo ride constructed!!  I actually got to see it being tested while at the Magic Kingdom last weekend.  

    I hope that this news brightens your day and helps you get even more excited about your Walt Disney World Vacation next month!!

    Have a magical trip!!
