Get a peek of the new Fantasyland Expansion! [Video]
Disney Vacation Guide: New Fantasyland Expansion Video
Many of us have been anxiously awaiting the opening of the new Fantasyland expansion in the Magic Kingdom so it was exciting to hear that the beloved Flying Dumbo attraction is back in action as part of Phase I of the reopening.
Children of all ages love the iconic Dumbo ride - this timeless attraction carries you gently around an ornate fountain in your own flying Dumbo.
Just beyond Dumbo (which will have a matching counterpart operating right beside it) is the Great Goofini!
The newly imagined Barnstormer roller coaster for children takes guests on a fun mild ride in Fantasyland. Meanwhile at the train station you carhop aboard the Walt Disney World train to explore the park in a more old fashioned way.
The Walt Disney World Railroad
One of the Railroad’s four antique steam-engine trains stops at a station every 4 to 10 minutes; Fantasyland, Frontierland or at the main station on Main Street, USA. Situated at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom, the scenic Railroad is an excellent way to start your day at the park; on a 20 minute, 1.5 mile circular tour at a relaxing 10-12 mph pace. Sit back and enjoy a very special ride aboard a meticulously restored freight train or feel free to depart at any of the stations as you wish.
Tip: If you hop on the railroad at the Main Street station when the park opens you can beat the crowds to Splash Mountain.
