This morning Storybook Circus at the Magic Kingdom soft-opened to the public. We don’t know the extent of what is/isn’t open at the moment, but we’ll keep you updated. Remember, with a soft opening anything can be closed or unavailable at any time.
Storybook Circus is part of an expansion overhaul at the Magic Kingdom to build “New Fantasyland.” Storybook Circus includes two Dumbo the Flying Elephant spinners, the re-themed Barnstormer junior roller coaster, and a redesigned Fantasyland train station. Other parts of this area which we know aren’t complete yet include a Casey Jr. Circus Train water play area, a large shop, and a character meet/greet.
Again, the entire area or sections thereof may close at any time. The official opening is currently scheduled for March 31, 2012.
