    Dumbo is moving, now what are they going to do with this gaping hole?

    Dumbo is going to be moving and doubling in size. Everyone and their mother have been talking about this and the fantasyland expansion. But what about where it used to be. Whats going their?

    I believe that it would be great to put Rapunzel tower their as the new Rapunzel has become the most popular princess movie since beauty and the beast.

    opinions?

    The Rapunzel idea sounds neat but I'm sure they have plans to fill in the missing pieces.

    Right now, the central area which in the first generation of the plans was to be various princess meet and greet areas, is now planned to be a Snow White-themed mine car coaster.

    This site has a pretty good overview of the existing layout with the blueprints.

    One of the pictures (you can click on them to enlarge them) shows the existing with a fade-in of the plans. Pretty nice job.

    Yup, that was the original plan. Now that area pretty much comprised of "CINDERELLA", "AURORA", and "POOH" on that plan is slated for the mine cart coaster.

    "PIXIE HOLLOW" isn't happening at all. And the "DUMBO" area has a more formal theme of "Circusland". Final positions of things may have changed. Whether it is officially part of Fantasyland or it will be a separate land like Toontown Fair I'm not sure.

    The only things that really remained intact from those plans were the Be Our Guest restaurant and the Ariel attraction, and that Dumbo is to move and be doubled up.

    yeah but the dumbo ride is not behind the wall. It doesn't look like its going to be apart of where the mine cart ride is going so whats going to be their when it moves to the circus area.

    The current construction wall doesn't necessarily represent the boundaries of everything that is planned.

    The area where Dumbo currently is with either be open space (since a fair amount is being lost) or be some portion of the mine cart ride area.

    1) I disagree. With both points.

    2) Watch for the new "Gaping Hole" pin coming soon to a cart or trading station near you.
