Storybook Circus soft opened to guests at 10:45am this morning and we have a complete photo walkthrough of the new land.  During this soft open, one side of Dumbo is working (excluding the new interactive indoor queue), along with the Barnstormer, the Fantasyland Train Station, and the new Fantasyland restrooms.  And yes, very pleased to report that Dumbo does now fly over water and fountains!

Just as with the old Toontown, it did not take long for the new land to become very busy.  After just an hour, Dumbo and the Barnstormer both had 45 minute waits.

The new land has some great details, far above that of the old Toontown Fair, including references to Carolwood at the train station.  We will save our detailed look and thoughts for when the land is completed, but these photos should give you an idea of how good this new land will be when complete.

Talk with other fans about the opening of this new land on our discussion forums.

As always, click on the thumbnails to view the large versions.
