    No it's not. They still need to cover the steel on one whole side of the building. Not until May of this year my friend.

    What I don't undertand is that everything in New Fantasyland is all beautiful and rich with theming.
    Then you go to Storybook Circus Land and it's like the average carnival. Why can't Dumbo's land be like all the other areas in New Fantasyland?

    Re: Disney World - Fantasyland Project Tracker

    Huh, I never noticed that Disney used "dwarfs" as the plural for dwarf instead of "dwarves". Learn something new every day.

    Hey! The blurb says, "And now you can join their merry band on a wild ride through the rolling countryside..." I guess it's already open. That was fast.
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    Thanks! I knew I was close
    I, personally, would rather Dumbo's land not be there at all. Dumbo creeped me out as a child and I watched it again not too long ago (thinking I just didn't understand it or something) and not only did it still creep me out, I was also sobbing every time Dumbo went to visit his mother. I know Walt loved Dumbo but a whole land themed after it? If they wanted an area more geared towards boys, why not introduce an Aladdin area or Peter Pan (even though Walt didn't like Peter himself, the characters have made quite an impression in the parks!). I think kids of today's era would respond to one of those areas more than Dumbo.

    Here's a video interview with Eric Jacobson about the expansion. A few more details, but helps to build the excitement:

    The e-motion doesn't pivot or drift as you described it. It tilts in side to side and back and forth, just like a mine car ride should. You're thinking of a coaster made by Premier Rides, the Drifting Coaster.

    And apparently [Link to unauthorized site removed] is having this same exact conversation.
    Ah, ok. Your'e right, I was thinking of that one. Either way though, the e-motion car does not swing like the ones on this Dwarfs coaster will.

    Re: Disney World - Fantasyland Project Tracker

    Mine Coaster is one step up from the Barnstormer? Hopefully it's a massive step up, otherwise it's just going to be a faster dark ride. And did anyone notice that people don't enter or exit from the Dwarfs Cottage? I wonder what will be placed inside there.

    Wow. That gives me a totally different view. Looks less appealing now..

    Re: Disney World - Fantasyland Project Tracker

    I like this version a lot better than the last, but I don't understand one thing: The circus land will have Dumbo and the Barnstormer. What about the entire other half of it with the tents? What's going there? Shops? Looks like a lot of area for nothing.

    I see lots of changes in the colors, some things in Dumbo, and - of course - Snow White.

    That guy in the video said that it was one step up from the barnstormer for children. Like the next thing after the very first starter coaster for small children.

    I don't know anymore. Everyone is saying something different. I wonder if anyone really knows what the ride will be like besides the designers.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't see it before.
