new fantastyland phase 1 to open late march?
 
i don't know if this is already common knowledge, but i was on the keys to the kingdom tour on friday and there was a sign in the tunnels stating that there would be a few attractions in the new fantasyland opening 'late march'. it was like a 'don't forget this exciting news' sort of flyer intended for employees of WDW. no dates were posted--but still. late march is sooner than i thought anything would be open.

i'm posting this in the 'rumors' board because i suppose that's what this is--a rumor. obviously i couldn't take a photo of the sign (for fear of being forever thrown out of WDW--which would be BAD!) and i don't remember the list of attractions that were posted, but there were three or four listed.

so--if anyone is going to be there late march, you should be in for a treat! :D

Thanks for the info! I know that Dumbo and the Great Goofini are supposed to open late march - but not sure what "3 or 4" would be...I heard rumors that Ariel is getting close :)

The report I read (Allearsnet) said a late March opening for one of the Dumbo rides, the Goofy coaster and the Fantasyland Railroad Station.

the goofy coaster--yes, i think that's the one i remember seeing.

drat. silly me, i planned a trip for late february. duh! guess i'll have to plan another for next year when everything is open! :p

Great news for anyone going from late March onwards if that turns out to be right - and if it's posted for Cast Members, it's probably pretty spot on, as you'd always make sure to communicate the right news to your staff first.

Disney did make an announcement a little while back on the Disney Parks Blog. "Late" March is all they're willing to say. Personally, I'm hoping that means, oh, around March 21-22nd, as I'll be there before the Fantasy's March 23 preview cruise.

i think the 21st sounds pretty 'late'! i hope you get to see it--though i'm sure you will!!!

Was that the March Hare that was late... no, it was White Rabbit. ;) Worse comes to worse, I'll take a spin on Mad Hatter Teacups instead.

Presumably, that depends on how upset he'll be when Snow White's Scary Adventure closes.

This is good news! Might help soften the blow of BTMRR being out of commission when we go the first week of April...

Very cool info :) We will be there March 24th - 31st. Thanks :)

We could see them testing the Dumbo ride when we were there last week, so hopefully it won't be too much longer.

Well I'll be there in July so I'm sure to see some new stuff. I can't wait. Maybe it will make Mickey and Minnie's houses being gone a little easier

Wonderful==makes up for Test Track being closed when we go!

wdwmagic.com is reporting today that Dumbo opening is pushed from the 12th of march to the 31st. :(
