New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World will officially open to the public on Thursday, December 6th. A few changes have been made to hours of operation for some of the attractions in preparation for the grand opening.
On December 5th:
The Magic Kingdom will be open from 9:00am – 7:00pm, with Wishes being shown at 6:00pm.
The Enchanted Forest area of Fantasyland will not be open to guests that day, but the Storybook Circus area will be open from 9:00am – 3:00pm.
Goofy can take a break from always getting electrocuted – because Mickey’s PhilharMagic will also be closed that day.
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel will be open from 9:00am – 6:00pm. Watch for me in the giant honey pot.
On December 6th:
TheMagic Kingdom will open at 8:00am for Extra Magic Hours for resort guests and at 9:00am for the general public.
Both the Enchanted Forest and Storybook Circus will be open from 8:00am – park close.
Be Our Guest Restaurant will be closed all day (but when you say the name of the place…that seems ironic!)
A grand opening ceremony will take place at 10:00am on the Castle Forecourt Stage. I can’t wait for that!
The park closes at 7:00 both nights for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Things are always subject to change without notice so please be sure to pick up a daily Times Guide when you get to the park to verify that these times are still correct.
