    Disney Fans Tweet From Storybook Circus Soft Opening

    While it hasn't opened officially, the first part of New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom welcomed guests Monday morning in an apparent soft opening.

    Disney fans tweeted their excitement Monday morning as Storybook Circus let visitors in for the first time. Click Like For Disney World News Updates: It's common practice for theme parks to host unannounced "soft openings" to test new areas before any official grand opening. Hours and attraction operations never are guaranteed during soft openings, so while Twitter users reported the opening Monday morning, that could change at any time. In short, operations are in Disney's hands as it moves toward grand opening.

    Storybook Circus is just one part of New Fantasyland, the largest ever expansion of the Magic Kingdom.

    Twitter users reported that one side of Dumbo the Flying Elephant was open Monday morning, along with the rethemed Barnstormer coaster and the Fantasyland train station.
    Storybook Circus is expected to be officially open by late March, according to Disney. New Fantasyland is expected to be completely done by 2014. Most attractions are scheduled to be open by 2013.

    Future New Fantasyland projects still under construction include Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, the Be Our Guest restaurant and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster.
    New Fantasyland's soft opening isn't the first time social media has changed how fans learn of sneak peeks. In 2010, dozens of Harry Potter fans camped out at Universal's Islands of Adventure awaiting the soft opening for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, coordinating communications through the hashtag #potterwatch.
