Opening Timeframes Announced for Fantasyland Expansion

With the first phase of the Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland Expansion opening just over a month ago, fans have been eagerly waiting to see when the next phases of the expansion will open to  Walt Disney World guests. This week, the Disney Parks Blog gave us a better idea of when we can expect these new additions, as they announced some opening timeframes for the new attractions.

While the first phase of Storybook Circus has already opened, several attractions have still yet to be revealed, including the second half of the updated Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction and the Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station. These remaining elements of Storybook Circus are currently set to open in July 2012.

The majority of the Fantasyland additions, however, will be coming during 2012’s holiday season. These additions include Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid, the Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Gaston’s Tavern, and Ariel’s Grotto.

Finally, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a new roller coaster themed to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, will be opening in Fantasyland in 2014.
