The Circus Comes to (Toon) Town

By March 13, 2012

Follow me on:

The first phase of the much-heralded Fantasyland expansion at Disney World's Magic Kingdom is now open -- well "soft" open anyways. Yesterday, the construction walls came down for part of the Storybook Circus area, which includes the re-themed Great Goofini Barnstormer coaster and one of the two planned Dumbo rides that have taken up residence in the former Mickey's Toontown Fair area. As is often the case with new park attractions, the new-ish rides are in preview mode and not "officially" open yet as Disney works out the kinks. The new Dumbo, which includes fountains and an impressive light display, looks stunning, especially at night. You can read more about what else is on the way to the Magic Kingdom, including the Little Mermaid ride, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the massive Be Our Guest restaurant, and more in my Fantasyland Expansion overview.
