Hey there guys and gals Anonymouse here.
If you know me in real life, you know that I live and breathe Disney gossip and the one thing that gets me all a twitter is anything about the Fantasyland Expansion. Recently, I’ve been hearing rumblings that the Great Goofini is set to open sometime in the Spring. I’m hearing May thrown around a lot, but I’d love to see it open in time for the big Spring Break crowds in early April.
You may recall that this new attraction is just a recycled Goofy’s Barnstormer (pray that they keep those chickens–I love them). In Disney speak, it’s getting a new “overlay.” I know, fancy right? It will be themed along the lines of the Storybook Circus, with Goofy as a circus ringmaster. And while it’s debatable whether or not kids even like the circus these days, that’s what you’re getting in the old Toon Town-a circus. And you will like it. Bad
We already know that side A of the Dueling Dumbo will open some time in February (thanks to an article from yours truly), so when Goofy opens up a couple of months later, this area should be complete, with a new train station, character meet and greets, and shopping.
But wait, there’s more.
Because we’re also hearing that the Journey of the Little Mermaid, the centerpiece attraction in the Fantasyland Expansion, may be further along than we thought. This is leading to some conjecture that we can expect soft openings sometime this summer. I’m not putting too much stock into this theory, but I like it and I hope it’s true.
I’ll keep you posted.
