Disney Announces December 6th is the Grand Opening of the Fantasyland Expansion in Magic Kingdom

You can't possibly imagine my excitement when I heard that the official grand opening of Walt Disney World's Fantasyland Expansion is set for December 6, 2012.

Why am I so excited? Because I will be there!! I am going to Walt Disney World to celebrate my 30th birthday in style and I will be there the 5th-14th. I have tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on the 6th which means lower crowds that evening. I know that the low crowds won't be as low as we had hoped and expected since this news became public but it will be amazing regardless.

I promise to take a TON of photos for all of you. Be sure to follow me on Twitter for real time updates and photos.

Attractions included in the opening are Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Ariel's Grotto, Gaston's Tavern, and Bonjour! Village Gifts.

Princess Fairytale Hall is schedule to open in 2013 and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is scheduled to open in 2014.

What aspect of the Fantasyland Expansion are you most excited about?
