    I know it's early, but we're planning a Jan 2013 trip. Any idea how much of Fantasyland will be completed/opened? Thanks!

    Hi Amanda,

    Are you as excited about the expansion in Fantasyland as I am?  I am thrilled to report that the first part of Storybook Circus just opened last week.  Guests visiting at that time were invited to enjoy the re-imagined Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride.  I've seen YouTube videos of the new ride and it looks gorgeous.

    Quite a bit more of the expansion will be complete by the time you visit next January.  However, we don't currently have a firm timeline for the completion of this project.  My best advice is to follow the Disney Parks Blog regularly.  They will keep us updated with constructions news.  Be sure to be on the lookout for news regarding the Be Our Guest restaurant.  They're making great progress on this restaurant.  I am hopeful that it will be open in time for your vacation.  Plan to make reservations to dine there as I'm sure it will be very popular among guests at the Magic Kingdom.

    Thanks for a fun question!
