Passholders have we got some great news for you! This November (2012), the Magic Kingdom will host New Fantasyland Passholder Previews that will allow a limited number of guests to preview the Fantasyland Forest side of the project. While very few details were given on the Walt Disney World Passholder website where this announcement was shared, we’d expect that Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Gaston’s Tavern, Bonjour! Village Gifts and even Be Our Guest restaurant will be open in some capacity. Registration for the event is not yet available and Disney has informed passholders to keep checking back on the passholder site and look out for the passholder preview event email in their inboxes soon! Of course as a limited capacity event, signing up for the preview as soon as registration goes live is crucial and we will surely let you know about it as soon as we get any further updates.
Of course for non-passholders this is also important news as it further continues to define the parameters around which we can expect New Fantasyland to soft-open and then have its official opening. Though we already had a feeling for what “Late 2012” meant, things are now becoming clearer and we should even know more as reservations open up for Be Our Guest restaurant later this month. So who is excited that we are just a couple of months away from being able to experience New Fantasyland?
