^I went on Friday and it was open. It's sort of like a giant play area with Dumbo flying around overhead.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Didn't really know where else to post this but since it was taken at MK ... sweet new Beatles "Abbey Road" inspired wallpaper from the Disney Blog. They even got the small details down.

Thank you for the pictures. It looks like they've gotten a lot of work done since I went a few months ago.

Well needed bump, anyways i've been looking at construction videos and i'm suprised at how fast they've been working! If all keeps going full speed ahead they might have Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Finished( or at least testing) by late 2013!

I agree. It just looks so sad with the fence around it. I'm sure it's needed though, and that's just sad. I wish a small sign would suffice.

^ Sadly, a sign would never be enough. They should have modified the design of the train to alleviate the need for the fence.

Does anybody have any idea what the layout for Seven Dwarfs is gonna be? If not, I think we should start guessing!

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/08/new-fantasyland-grand-opening-set-for-december-6-at-magic-kingdom-park-at-walt-disney-world-resort/

For more than a year now, we’ve shared updates on the New Fantasyland expansion at Magic Kingdom Park and we’re just as excited as you are to experience these magical new attractions for ourselves.

Today we’re thrilled to announce that the grand opening of New Fantasyland will take place on December 6, 2012. Attractions included in this opening are Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Ariel’s Grotto, Gaston’s Tavern and Bonjour! Village Gifts.

Previews of these attractions will begin November 19.

As previously planned, the New Fantasyland expansion will continue with the opening of Princess Fairytale Hall in 2013 and the debut of a new Disney “mountain” in the form of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in 2014.

The Storybook Circus section of the New Fantasyland expansion, which includes Barnstormer – Starring the Great Goofini, the Casey Jr. Splash & Soak Station, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant, opened to guests in July.

How soon will you visit? And which New Fantasyland attraction are you most excited to experience?


http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/galleries/2012/08/all-in-the-details-meet-the-gang-at-petes-silly-sideshow-in-new-fantasyland-at-magic-kingdom-park/

Come one, come all to Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus at Magic Kingdom Park!

Many of you have been asking for details on what’s happening in the big-top tents in the Storybook Circus area of New Fantasyland. I’m happy to share that one tent will house Pete’s Silly Sideshow character greetings, a place where guests can meet some of their favorite Disney circus stars who wait to show off their special talents.

Once inside the tent, guests have two options: Join a line that leads to Minnie Magnifique (Minnie Mouse as a circus star) and Madame Daisy Fortuna (Daisy Duck as a fortuneteller), or head to see The Great Goofini (Goofy as a daredevil stunt pilot) and The Astounding Donaldo (Donald Duck as a snake charmer).

In case you were wondering, Mickey Mouse will continue to greet guests in his current location at Town Square Theater on Main Street, U.S.A. And as usual, all entertainment is subject to change.

Which character are you most excited to meet? Tell us in the comments section below!

I really like the thematic costumes they're giving the characters, especially Donaldo. Looks good, hadn't heard anything about this addition but seems like a fairly impressive addition for what it is.
