Feeling bummed....

We booked our Disney vacation in December for this coming November right after Thanksgiving. I am a Disney cast member but not from Florida. It looks like now, the new Fantasyland expansion will only be open to Florida Cast Members starting Nov. 19th till mid December which means my kids won't be able to do Dumbo, Teacups, or Goofy's Barnstormer. I am really bummed out right now!!!

Dumbo and Goofy's are open to the public and have been for some time. Teacups is in the original part of Fantasyland and was never a part of the expansion. The only parts that will be in soft opening and/or preview mode is the Belle area and The Little Mermaid.

You've got the dates mixed up. Cast Member previews are 10/20-11/2. Starting 11/19, New Fantasyland will have soft openings for all guests. While it will be open for everyone, because it's still in previews, it will be subject to closures. (And, as PP noted, Dumbo and Barnstormer have been opened "officially" since the summer and are therefore not part of the previews, and the Teacups aren't part of the expansion at all.)

So, it's good news for you. You should definitely be able to see it sometime while you're there.
