Hello Disney lovers. I have received more news from the Yahoo! Group I belong to, disneyworlddreams. Please see below along with my thoughts after that:

The Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station is now open and drenching guests on the roundtable in front of the Carolwood Park Station. In addition, while final adjustments are still taking place in preparation for allowing guests to ride, the walls around the second spinner at Dumbo the Flying Elephant have come down, letting guests get a look at the attraction’s final appearance.

Casey Jr. and the giraffe and elephant cars soak guests from the rails in the center of the turntable.

The Casey Jr. area virtually guarantees that you get soaked if you venture onto the wet play deck, as there are many sources of water all around, which provide tremendous amounts of water from many angles.

Casey Jr.’s eyes open and close, but there is a railing around the engine preventing guests from boarding the locomotive.

Towels, water shoes, sunscreen, and more are available from the nearby mercantile wagon.

While the Casey Jr. engine originally appeared to have an open space for kids to climb in and sit, a short railing has been constructed around it to keep little ones from getting in. It would appear that the open space design was not necessarily run past Disney’s liability attorneys before construction began.

Now while I don’t remember this section of the Magic Kingdom, it does sound like a great place especially for the kids. On top of that, with this heatwave most of the United States is currently on, this area sounds like wonderful for people who want to cool off while at the Magic Kingdom. I also feel this is a great edition to the large expansion of the New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom?  How do you feel about this latest expansion? Are you in favor of it? Why or why not? Please post your comments below or E-mail us at I look forward to reading what you have to say. For now though, as always, have a magical day!
