    Hi Stacy! I'm planning to visit mid-January, can you tell me what will be opened in the new Fantasyland at that time?

    The new Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom is the largest expansion in the 41-year history of Magic Kingdom! The expansion will double the size of the original Fantasyland from 10 to 21 acres. The attractions and dining experiences in new Fantasyland will open in a phased approach. Some of the phases were already launched in 2012, including the new Storybook Circus, with two Dumbo rides and reimaginEARed The Great Goofini. 

    In December, Gaston's Tavern, Belle's Village, Be Our Guest restaraunt, Enchanted Tales with Belle and Bonjour Village Gifts opened. Also, Under the Sea - Journey of Little Mermaid attraction and Ariel's Grotto meet and greet were both unveiled and guests are enjoying this part of the park now as well.

    But, there is still more to come. In 2014 the Seven Dwarves Mine Train will unveil. There will also be a new Princess Fairy Tale Hall that's planned for late 2013.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
