The Barnstormer is a junior roller coaster. It is located in the Storybook Circus section of the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort. The Barnstormer featuring the Great Goofini is the successor to The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm which closed in February 2011 as part of the Fantasyland expansion.


Grandma Duck's Petting Farm (1988–1996)

A petting zoo named Grandma Duck's Petting Farm previously occupied the site where The Barnstormer now sits. It was located in the Mickey's Birthdayland section of Fantasyland and was home to Minnie Moo, a Holstein cow that was famous for having a Hidden Mickey on her side. In 1996 it was removed and Minnie Moo was relocated to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. She later died from natural causes. The barn was integrated into The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm.

Goofy's Wiseacre Farm (1996–2011)

After the closure of Grandma Duck's Petting Farm in early 1996, the Magic Kingdom began construction on a junior roller coaster called The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm. It opened in Mickey's Toontown Fair on October 1, 1996. It was one of three attractions at American Disney parks which took its name from former attractions at the now-defunct Opryland USA in Nashville, Tennessee. The other two attractions are Grizzly River Run at Disney California Adventure and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm appeared to be an airplane school taught by Goofy. The story behind it included guests flying in Goofy's homemade airplane as it swooped, twisted, and turned. It then went full speed into a barn. Inside the barn were three Audio-Animatronic chickens from Epcot's former World of Motion attraction. A Hidden Mickey formed by a jumble of wires could be found in the attraction's queue near the "popcorn plants".

As part of the Fantasyland expansion, the attraction closed on February 12, 2011 to be rethemed to The Great Goofini.

The Great Goofini (2011–present)

From 2011 to 2014, Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland underwent a large expansion and renovation.Mickey's Toontown Fair closed permanently on February 12, 2011 in order to make way for the expansion. Some of its elements have been demolished and others have been rethemed to a new Storybook Circus area. The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm was rethemed to The Barnstormer featuring the Great Goofini. New Fantasyland opened in stages. The first one, which opened in early 2012, among other things, contained the first half Storybook Circus including the new rethemed Barnstormer.


Guests board one of two trains which each seat 16 riders. The train is taken up a chain lift hill to a height of 9.1 meters (30 ft). 207 meters (679 ft) of twists, turns, and elevation changes follow, before the ride comes to a halt in the brake run. Riders reach a top speed of 40.2 kilometers per hour (25.0 mph) on the one-minute ride.
