    Hello I'm taking my 6 and 10 year old to disney the last week of november. everything was perfect till i found out we cant see fantasyland cause were not pass holders. im driving 20 hours from ohio does anyone know how i could get in.

    Hi, Brian!  Another section of Fantasyland is set for an opening on December 6th, and annual passholders are eligible for a preview beginning November 19th.  There may be soft openings prior to the December 6th date, which is essentially where members of the general public are offered the opportunity to see the new attractions, but these are not offered on any type of schedule, and it's more a matter of being at the right place at the right time.

    There are, however, parts of the new Fantasyland expansion that are open already for your family to enjoy.  These include some of the Storybook circus area and the new Dumbo area, and the re-themed Barnstormer roller coaster.

    The Fantasyland expansion continues into 2013, so even if you are able to get into a soft opening of some of the new areas, the expansion project is not yet complete even as of this December.  You'll be able to come back and see new and exciting things during future trips.

    Please don't let this detract from your perfectly planned vacation!  There is so much to do and see, and as someone who routinely does the 20 hour drive to Orlando, I always think it's well worth the trip!  There will be parts of Fantasyland for you to enjoy, but there's so much beyond that to have fun with and enjoy!
