    I see that new Fantasyland will have previews beginning November 19th. We arrive on the 25th. Do you have to have special passes to go on these rides for the previews or will some of them just be open hit or miss?


    What Disney will do during this time is never wholly clear. The likelihood is that the area will either be open to all guests, open to select guests (like the Annual Passholder previews you mention, or the Cast Member previews that were going on during my vacation a few weeks ago), or closed for fine tuning.

    I don't expect you would find the different attractions open selectively, but that is entirely possible as well.

    The real key here is to do the following;

    • Don't come with an expectation that it will be open. You don't want to set yourself up for disappointment.
    • When you come to the park in the morning, make your way to the entry to this new area (just past Prince Charming's Royal Carrousel) and ask. Don't rely on what Cast Members near the front of the park might know, or not know.

    Really, that is all you can do. I wish you the best of luck!

    Have a magical vacation!
