Disney have now confirmed the timeline for the first of the new Fantasyland attractions to open. 

First up, Dumbo will close in its current location in early 2012 and will move to take up position next to its twin in the new Storybook Circus land.  The new double Dumbo experience will open later in 2012, complete with indoor queue with interactive experiences.  This confirms that the existing Dumbo ride will be part of the new Fantasyland, as there was much speculation as to whether an entire new ride system would be used instead.

Opening in early 2012 will be "The Great Goofini", which is the rethemed Barnstormer attraction, and the completely rebuilt Fantasyland train station.
