Fantasyland Expansion Completion Dates

I'm thinking about going back in June, 2012. Is any of the expansion scheduled to be completed by then? I was thinking of waiting until June, 2013 but that seems so far away.

It's probably a bad idea to schedule a trip around the FLE completion. Things get delayed and pushed back so there is no guarantee you'll get to see anything you were expecting.

That being said, it sounds like things may start opening in Fall 2012.

There is no scheduled completion dates for anything. Disney has not released any completion dates. As of right now, they are saying "late 2012 and early 2013". It's highly unlikely anything will be done by June. But nobody can say for sure.

we were in the EXACT boat as you !! We were planning for June 2012, but decided to postpone it until June 2013. Oh, it makes me sad every day thinking about it. But this is what we thought....if we go in June 2012, the walls will be up and we won't get to see anything new unless we peek over the fence. If we tough it out for another year, we have one more year to save up, plan and then when we get there....the walls will be down !

So for us, we're waiting for 2013..... but, if it makes you feel better, I tell myself this : We can book our trip next summer 2012 and our 180 day window opens next December 2012. SOOOOOO, realistically, the fun begins when we can start planning next summer after the 2013 rates are released. ( or in August, whichever they do for 2013) Feel a little better ?? PLUS, you get to see all (most) of the new expansion. To me, it's the good things are going to come to those who wait......(that can't go every year !)

I'm planning on september 2012 and sometime in 2013 so maybe we'll luck out and get a soft opening of something in our september trip, but if not, 2013 will be a great time with the new expansion completed or nearly completed!

We're waiting until June 2013 as well. I don't like not being at Disney in 2012, but I'd rather wait until most or all of the expansion is open. Plus, with this much time to save, it'll give us the chance to splurge on accomodations, like staying at Poly!

My plan is to head to Disneyland sometime in the fall of 2012 for Cars land, and then return to Florida in 2013.

We are going July 2012. We aren't going this year because dh is in S.Korea. This summer is hard because one...he is gone...two..We should be in Disney right now. We had a nice "daddy is going to Korea trip" last summer. We are going ALL out on 2012 trip. It is a painful wait.

I am sure we plan a 2013 trip to see the new stuff as well. Disney World is the glue that holds my family together
