    AWESOME! It is so cool to see what goes on ‘behind the scenes’ to construct such magical places! Looks like another vacation will be planned in late 2012 to get to experience it first hand.

    Thanks for the video, Rick. It looks like they have a way to go, but those Imagineers work magic, so they should be finished by the stated date. I’m wondering if Disney will be having a big party year because it’s the 40th year of WDW already.


  8. Larry says:

    Peaks like that are kind of cool. Maybe you can do an other one in 3 months and then at 6 months. Also how about a peak at the New Resort that is due to open in 2012? Any chance you can give us all a peak at how far they have gotten with that New Value Resort next to Pop Century?


  9. Penny D Serrato says:

    Wonder what Walt would think about it. Looks pretty cool.
    Thanks Rick

    Hi Rick,
    I am exited about the Fantacyland Expansion Project. I a pumped to see the new attractions that workers are building. It a shame that Mickey’s Tonntown Fair is closed. In 2009 I rode the Barnstormer. Great ride, loads of fun. I guess that Disney need to keep thing new so people keeps coming back. See you next week.

    P.S The song you played is a song that they play on the Water Pagent. It brings back memories of my trips in 2007 and 2009.

    Hey Rick,

    Thanks for giving a view of the changes that are taking place in Fantasyland. That will be exciting to see when it is all finished.

    See you next week,


    P.S. I wish I had your job doing the Travel With Rick video every week.
