First phase of Magic Kingdom's new Fantasyland soft-opens
Published: March 12, 2012 at 9:46 AM
Goofini is the old Goofy's Barnstormer Vekoma family coaster that Disney relocated from the now-closed Mickey's Toontown Fair to the new circus-themed section in the renovated and expanded Fantasyland that's under construction. Dumbo's also been moved to the new circus section, though the Dumbo that opened today is a new spinner. The "old" Dumbo will be joining the mix, too, giving the Magic Kingdom two of those spinners to help reduce that popular ride's notoriously long lines.
I'd love to get some photos and accounts from Theme Park Insider readers in Orlando, so please, send 'em along or post in the comments.
Update: A source in the know reports that the Magic Kingdom did 61,000 guests Monday. Those are mid-summer numbers. Business is looking up in Orlando, it seems.
