Disney Announces Fantasyland Expansion Opening Dates

Part of Walt Disney World's highly anticipated Fantasyland expansion in Magic Kingdom has already opened, and earlier this week, Mickey and Company gave guests an idea of when to expect other phases of the project to be complete.

While some of Storybook Circus attractions have opened to guests, the rest of the area is expected to open this summer. Look for the second half of the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride and the Casey Jr. Splash 'n' Soak station to be ready for guests in July.

Guests can also expect the rest of the updated Fantasyland attractions, including Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid, the Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Gaston's Tavern, and Ariel's Grotto, to be ready for the 2012 holiday season.

One attraction guests will have to wait longer for is the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs themed roller coaster. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is currently set to open in 2014.
