I can't wait to see the new Storybook Circus area. Even though my kids are way past the Dumbo riding stage, you can be sure I'll be dragging them into the interactive circus tent just to check it out.

For the record, I like Dinoland in AK too. I like when Disney tries different styles.

Hehe. Agreed! (sorry...that was mean)

Dumbo has never really been one of my all-time favorites, I've never really been a big fan of the "circus-theme"...ever, but now I'm really excited to see it! I guess I can't say that I like it or not until we see it tomorrow!

I wouldn't put Storybook Circus is in the same category as Dinoland, but given the choice I wish they would have kept Toontown, spruced it up and added some things, but kept it. I thought it was great that they had Mickey and Minnie's house and we always went through them...the kids always loved seeing where Mickey and Minnie lived. It was a small area and it did need something else though. I like the Circus theme, it does go very well with Dumbo, I'm still just sad they had to take out Toontown for it.

Just saw all the characters in their tent for the first time. By FAR the best themed, cutest backdrop for a meet in the MK. The fairies are the only thing that comes close.

And Dumbo at night is 100 times more beautiful at night than the old location.

We just got back and even though we no longer have young kids, we took a look around storybook circus.

We (husband and I) thought it was great especially for those with young kids. The new setup for the dumbo rides is very well done. There is an indoor play area to wait for the ride, they give you a buzzer similar to the kid you get a restaurants.

We ere also lucky enough to see Donald, Goofy, Minnie and Daisy in their new costumes and location in Pete's sideshow - very nice set up for meet & greets.

The circus tent shop was also very cute.

I did like Toontown, though I always thought that Disneyland's Toontown was so much better than MK's.

I think Storybook circus is a lovely addition along with the rest of the new additions to Fantasyland.
