    What are your thoughts on the upcoming Fantasyland expansion?

    Love it or loathe it?

    Is there anything you'll miss or are particularly looking forward to?

    If you were in charge, what would you add or do away with?

    Love it, looking forward to it. I've felt that MK needs some sort of Face lift for some time now.

    I can't wait to see the new developments and am really looking forward to the Little Mermaid attraction. The restaurant based around Beauty and the Beast sounds good too.

    Can't wait. I was disappointed to lose Donald's Boat, but the refurb is needed and I think that Toontown was unnecessarily using a lot of good space.

    I will miss Toon Town...not because it was spectacular, but because it was part of what I remember from my first trip to WDW in 1999. I am really looking forward to the new attractions and eateries :eat: and I will always have my pictures to show of what was once upon a time :) I am glad that the parks continue to grow and evolve...I just don't know what if any other attractions could change without losing to much of the Magic in the Kingdom

    I agree, toontown will be sadly missed but I am looking forward to just wandering around the new areas think it will be a good wandering and exploring place.

    I can't wait to go into Gaston's tavern, BATB is my all time favourite movie and to be able to enjoy Gaston's excellent taste in decor will be a dream come true:beer:

    Looking forward to the change. :)
    Having a twin Dumbo ride should make a big difference to the wait time. Its such an iconic ride that its nice to see it get a new lease of life.
    Toontown served its purpose, but its a positive step to finally have the area, and that of the former 20k leagues site converted into a new, exciting area for all ages to enjoy.

    I was going through my CP photos last night and I'm really glad I took a day to really photograph Toontown, knowing it was leaving us. I also noticed I have quite a few from Snow White, which will also be an extinct attraction before long.

    I have never done snow white, i actually didnt even know it existed until very recently - after our last trip infact!
    I think its a shame toontown is going, i love mickey and minnies house and thought barnstormer was great. Having said that, im sure the new part will be brilliant and the "old" town will soon be forgotten about!

    I'm looking forward to it but I will miss Toon Town especially Mickey and Minnie's house. I'm excited to see everyone once it is finished especially the Beauty and the Beast restaurant.

    The Beauty and the Beast restaurant is the thing I'm most looking forward to. I hope it's finished by Summer 2013 (when I intend to FINALLY go back).
