Be careful! You start reading one TR and the next thing you know you have subscribed to 20 of them! They can be addicting!

There's a whole Fantasyland refurb thread that I've been reading, and it also mentions ToonTown. From what I've read, it's supposed to be open through at least December, but no one can say for sure. Reports from people who came back recently is that it's still up and running right now for sure

Your window is so stinkin cute!! And how adorable are you in your outfit- sorry you had to change.... you know I know what a downpour is like at WDW...ICK...but still, better there in the rain than somewhere else, I guess. Can't wait to read more, Nikki!

Speaking of the outfit you had to change out of. It really was cute. I hope you got a chance to wear it later.

Thanks Ellen! I feel bad that I've sort of stopped. I reeeally want to keep going but I feel like it just won't be as effective without the photopass pics to tell the story....

You are so right! I'd rather be in WDW on a crappy day than in NJ on a beautiful day!

Oh thanks! I did not get a chance to wear it again later. I had a specific outfit planned for each day and night and that outfit just didn't fit in that plan except for that night! Haha!

Yes--it's open as of July 3rd. The walkway into ToonTown is narrower because of the walls around the Fantasyland expansion area, but all was open--Barnstormer, Judge's Tent, Donald's Boat, Micky and Minnie's houses, and the railroad.

Nikki--I'm here, ready to see how your days compared to ours! We arrived 7/3 and MK was amazing--not empty, but considerably less crowded, thanks to the rain. We had lots of rain on the 3rd, and the 4th at Epcot was drizzly most of the afternoon, but great in the evening. The 5th had that huge downpour in the evening--we waited out the worst of it while in Narcoossee's. Then we didn't have any more until right before we left on the 11th.
