We were so excited to have a chance to see the new Dumbo last Thursday night. The attraction is beautiful with the bright colors and water feature. The cast members’ new circus themed costumes are grand! As we were admiring the new ride, a cast member showed us the peanuts and elephant prints on the ground. Such a surprise treat!

Great, can’t wait to see the new Dumbo, would still like to see the speedway retheamed to cars before my son is too old to enjoy it. It would be an inexpensive solution for a boys ride in the princess world. Not that my daughter is complaining. Also is there a time when agent p is taking over epcot, comming in may, kids love agent p would like to do that.
