    Is the new fantasyland open yet, with all the new attractions? we're super excited to be going in March 2012 and just curious if we'd get to experience the new stuff!! thanks

    Hi Cheryl,

    I'm super excited about the Fantasyland Expansion that is taking place at the Magic Kingdom.  The new attractions will open in phases in 2012.

    Although no official dates have been announced about the opening of the attractions, Walt Disney World News says, "Two other Storybook Circus elements planned for opening early in the year are The Barnstormer and Fantasyland Station".   

    The calendar for the online calendar for the Magic Kingdom shows that Dumbo the Flying Elephant will be Closed For Refurbishment Monday, January 9 - Friday, February 17, 2012 but no word if that means it will be opening in its new location.

    Another new addition to the Magic Kingdom opening in early 2012 is the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. Merlin the magician will recruit guests to become apprentice sorcerers and then help them with maps and clues that show where and how to defeat an army of Disney villains. Click here for the story on the Disney Parks Blog.

    So there aren't any official dates of openings yet.  I'd recommend keeping an eye for updates on openings on the Disney Parks Blog and the official Disney Facebook page. If you're on twitter, follow @DisneyParks and @WaltDisneyWorld.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll get to experience something new on your trip!!  Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
