I'm rather suprised no one has mention this yet since its all over Twitter and Facebook for the last few hours. But Disney soft opened today part of its Storybook Circus. Attractions open include the Barnstormer, one of the Dumbo's and the Fantasyland Train Station.
I was wondering the same thing, Malin. I've seen lots of pictures and video posted of the soft opening, and looked at several discussion boards to see what people were saying, and...nothing. I'm kind of surprised.
From what I've seen, I have to say, I'm not a fan of Dumbo's color scheme. I think there is too much gold, which makes it look a little tacky. The water feature is great, and it's about time. Still, I much prefer the Disneyland and Disneyland Paris versions of Dumbo. They have a more elegant look to them.
Barnstormer looks ok, but in the same way that Goofy's Sky School at DCA does...it's just minor cosmetic additions. Still, it's cute.
The train station and nearby bathrooms look fantastic! I also love the details in the pavement like peanut shells. So far, it looks great, even with the garish circus color scheme on Dumbo.
Not sure if this has been posted yet, but ImagiNerding has pics of the New train station. Apparently the park in front is called "Carolwood Park" IMO this station is Much Much better than the old: https: Wall Photos | Facebook
I will be honest I just wish they waited for the whole land to be ready before they opened it.
It'd be nice to see everything revealed together when it's done, but I'm hoping this will help relieve some of the traffic in Fantasyland. It's been a total nightmare getting through at busier times lately, and the Spring Break crowds can only make it worse.
