Oh my, that video. Absolutely amazing. I can almost feel what it would be like to be on that ride.

Now I definitely need to make sure my class goes to Grad Nite instead of Grad Bash.

I'd hate for Snow White to close, it's just such a nice, classic dark ride.

Ok. That makes sense, but I still can't shake the feeling that it's going to end up being essentially the same thing. Yes, the omni-mover makes it different, Scuttle narrating makes it different, and going backwards at some point makes it different but I don't see how they could honestly make it truly different since it's the exact same story. I guess we could say that from the ashes of the ride that almost was comes the new ride that opens this year. That still doesn't explain why there is over a decade between them. Maybe the original concept was too ambitious construction wise so they canned it until they could come up with the version that's opening soon. I hope it's as good as if not better than its ancestor on the DVD.

I know Toontown will be closed in the fall. We were there last fall (Oct '10) and a good bit of Fantasyland was closed. There aren't plans to close more of Fantasyland before the expansion are there?

Nope, at least not on the same scale (Ariel's Grotto, Pooh's Playful Spot, Scuttle's Landing, etc). IASW was down during your visit, but that was not FLE-related. At some point Dumbo will go down to be moved, but that should be about it. If some rumors are true, then Snow White will eventually shut down permanently as well, but I don't put much stock in that just yet.

Can I just say... I LOVE the new Pooh queue.

Speaking of Pooh, I also like this new poster for his upcoming movie (courtesy Stitch Kingdom)

Plans for Goofy's Barnstormer:

Will the ride be torn down? Or will it be re-themed? I have seen one sentence on a site somewhere (very specific, I know) that said it would be re-themed as a clown coaster. Every other link I can find simply says the ride will be closed when Toontown closes. Thanks for the info or links.

There was a rumor going around that it was going to be rethemed as a clown coaster, but not from any reputable site.

A more reputable rumor is that it is still going to be themed with Goofy... but as some sort of ring master theme, I've heard, "The Great Goofini."

A Google search with several Great Goofini references.


The only announcement from Disney is that it is being saved and rethemed, but as what remains unknown.

Thanks for the answer. My boys (ages 6, 3, 3) love the ride and would be sad if it was gone for good. I will miss the Goofy airplane cut-out in the wall of the barn, but I'm glad it will be saved in some form. That was a pretty good theme for a kiddy coaster.

Me obsessing over our fall trip again. :-)

If they are moving Dumbo, then it will have to be closed at some point, right? Any idea on when that would happen. (Hopefully not before September!)

They have not said. I like to think that they will put the new one in place before closing the old one, but there's no way to know yet. For me, Dumbo was never about the ride itself, but the view of the castle and Fantasyland, the heart and soul of the Magic Kingdom. Now that it's moving away from the castle, I'm just not that excited about it any more. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it is.
