Disney Releases Statement Regarding Fantasyland Update
As per the Disney Parks Blog, the storybook circus has become a more concrete visual that many have been wondering about since it's announcement. It is now confirmed that the new Dumbo attraction will feature "dueling Dumbos'." What does that mean? It tells us that for the first time in history a DumbO attraction will spin clockwise. It presents the concept that the Dumbos will spin opposite of each other. Also we have learned that The Barnstormer will not actually change names. The reimagined theming is taking place but the name of the attraction apparently will remain. Lastly, we have learned that the "Fantasyland Train Station" (not Storybook Circus Station) will be open to the public in early 2012. This give guests more of a concrete say over when the expansion begins opening to guests. Hopefully this is the beginning of many announcements regarding the expansions opening and continued development.
