Storybook Circus in New FantasylandDebbie Bookstaber
Be part of big fun under the big top in Storybook Circus – part of the New Fantasyland expansion! From the circus tents to the walkways embedded with peanut shells, its the best circus you’ll ever see!
That Fantasyland staple Dumbo, the Flying Elephant is new, improved and twice as fun! Unlike the old Dumbo ride, which most parents remember by the seemingly slowest moving line in the Magic Kingdom, the new ride not only has two! Before riding, guests receive a circus ticket pager that virtually holds their place and notifies them when it’s their turn to board the attraction. Then guests can run and play fun-filled family games! There’s a huge play area for kids young and old – you’ll have to drag your kids away to go on the ride! They’ll be having so much fun ‘in line’ they won’t want to leave. (Fastpass is available.)
Kids will scream with delight on The Barnstormer Featuring the Great Goofini! This family-style roller coaster has just enough thrills for little and big kids! Dip and soar through the clouds (watch out for that sign, Goofini!) and spin like a stunt plane pilot! (Fastpass is available.)
Cool off in Casey Jr. Splash ‘N Soak Station water play area, right next to the Fantasyland Train Station! Kids will love the chance to splash and play on a hot day in this adorable circus themed play area. There’s a bathroom right nearby if you need to change out of those wet clothes!
And don’t miss Pete’s Silly Sideshow! Meet Minnie Magnifique, Madame Daisy Fortuna, The Great Goofini and The Astounding Donaldo! Be sure to bring your cameras and autograph books!
And don’t forget to stop in Big Top Souvenirs! Not only does it have everything under the sun for an adoring Disney fan, but it has amazing homemade treats like Caramel Apples, Carmel Corn, and Cotton Candy! Bring your sweet tooth!
As Walt Disney himself said, “Fantasyland is dedicated to the young at heart and those who believe that when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.” And Storybook Circus in New Fantasyland certainly delivers dreams and fun for everyone!
