    Is there somewhere I can go to see the schedule of the Fantasyland openings? I've read that it will be open in stages. We're coming at the end of August and I'm hoping at least some of it will be running! Thanks again for all your help.

    Hi Tiffani,

    It's an exciting time for the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

    Since construction dates are not guaranteed, the best way to keep informed of the Fantasyland renovation progress is via the Disney Parks Blog.

    The first part to open included one half of the new Dumbo attraction plus the Barnstormer Starring the Great Goofini in Storybook Circus. In July, the second phase of Storybook Circus, including the additional Dumbo will welcome guests.

    For the 2012 holiday season, we can expect openings of:
    the openings of Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Gaston's Tavern, and Ariel's Grotto.

    We'll have to be a bit more patient for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train slated for a 2014 opening. 

    Enjoy a wonderful visit in August!
