Awesome! Any chance you want to add Fairytale Hall in there?

Updated the first post!

I intentionally left that one off because I have nothing to go on to estimate date! There have been some vague rumors floating around for a while now but with dates all over the map. I can't even begin to guess.

Has anyone heard anything about whether or not Dumbo the character will be doing meet and greets while the ride is closed? I know this happened several years ago when the ride was closed for refurbishment, but I haven't heard for sure if it's happening again for this time frame. DisneyWiki says he will be out, but they have no source, so I'm not trusting it.

It would be so awesome if the bulk of the "year-end 2012" stuff was ready by the end of September, but I'm not getting my hopes up. My little girls would really love to eat at Belle's restaurant!

Afraid Not.

Great thread and awesome grid DB! One of my DDs was searching the Disney site for updates on the expansion last night and could not find anything.

Heading down in late Aug, looks like a couple of attractions should be open.

Thanks for the info. We are planning to be there at the end of March so hopefully no more delays for Dumbo. I just wish they would update the park map on the WDW website so we can see where everything will be. This is our first trip to WDW so interesting that we will see new Dumbo, Goofy ride, train stop, etc.

I am bummed about missing BTMR though and missing a whole land (Toon Town), but still looking forward to our trip.

After two boys, we finally have our princess and we can't wait to take her to WDW! So, we may "snap" and go at the end of February. Will I be disappointed in the "magic" of Fantasyland, with the walls and closed attractions? What I like about Disney is the attention to detail and theme so big blue walls don't really do it for me, you know? Is the refurb overwhelming to the area or hardly noticeable?

Our boys will be 7 and 4 and the princess will be 14 months old. I think the Donald Duck splashground is gone, right? What about the Winnie the Pooh playground? Just running around one of these playgrounds was always a highlight for the boys so I wondered about the situation there. We could always go over to the the island, but these were nice, soft contained areas where we could sit!

Thanks so much!

Both of those areas are gone. There is an interactive queue for the Winnie the Pooh ride that my DS enjoyed quite a bit, and Tom Sawyer Island is a big hit with him, as is playing checkers on the dock there, or in Town Square, something that he just discovered this past year.
