If oyu are a Diseny fan, you probably have heard about the Fantasyland Expansion happening at Walt Disney World right now. Construction on The Little Mermaid Ride (squee!) and a Beauty and the Beat restaurant are already underway. The Pooh queue was already redone, and it sounds really neat! Mickey's Toontown Fair is closing soon - the barnstormer will be re themed and a double Dumbo ride will be added!
Today Disney released some new concept art, and it is spectacular!
You can click on it to make it bigger [it is cut off on the blog]. To the left, you can see the village haus and then the Beauty and the Beast area. that includes the restaurant and Belle's village. Next to that, nestled in the rocks is the Little Mermaid ride.
But the new and most exciting part is the announcement of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster! that HUGE green rocky area is the coaster! It sounds exciting: The coaster will feature a first-of-its kind ride system with a train of ride vehicles that swing back and forth as they whisk along the track. Cool! The current Snow white ride will be re themed into a princess meet and greet area for the leftover princesses lol Sadly Tink will be pushed to EPCOT, where it sounds like she'll only be out during the Flower and Garden Festival >:(
Also announced was the new Star Wars attraction will open May 20th!
Exciting news! Can't wait until 2013 when everything will be completed! Thatm ight be the first time we get to go back to WDW anyway :(
