Three Fantasyland Expansion Attractions Now Open

Guests heading out to Magic Kingdom this spring will have the chance to take in three new attractions in the theme park's Storybook Circus portion of Fantasyland. This part of the ongoing Fantasyland expansion is now in what's called a "soft-opening" phase. The new attractions include:

  • The first section of "Dumbo, the Flying Elephant"
  • The Goofy roller coaster: "The Barnstormer, Starring The Great Goofini" roller coaster
  • "The Fantasyland Train Station"

Disney History: Remembering Mickey's Birthdayland, Starland, and Toontown Fair
