Do You Feel Like A Hero?

The official opening date of the Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World is coming.  On December 6th, 2012, it will open up and though everything planned will not be open, there will certainly be enough to be worthy of a Disney celebration!

The New Fantasyland is divided into two parts, Storybook Circus and Enchanted Forrest.

The Storybook Circus is already making magic happen for guests and includes the Fantasyland station of the Walt Disney World Railroad, Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station, the new double Dumbo The Flying Elephant and the Barnstormer.

The Enchanted Forrest will include Ariel’s Grotto, Enchanted Tales With Belle, Be Our Guest Restaurant, and Under The Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid.

Of course there are a few things still under construction that we cannot wait for (but I guess we will have to!) but these additions, available in full on December 6th, are well worth the trip. Well who are we kidding, Disney World is always worth the trip!

Of course, being Disney, they need a hero to open the place up for the rest of us! At least that is what their add implies (See the video below to know what grumpy means!) Could you be that hero? I sure would like to be!

For more information on the Fantasyland expansion check out our New Fantasyland Page.


Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Not sure what the draw is here but little kids love it!

Name: Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Land: Fantasyland

Fastpass: No

Good: You can see lots of Fantasyland from this ride.

Bad: If you are fan of the movie and going in a circle this is for you! Grumpy is neither. The wait is incredibly long sometimes but this should be alleviated when they add the second Dumbo and the boredom will be lessened by an interactive big top area.

Must See: No

Grumpy Rating: 2 out of 5 grumpys
