Walt Disney World Releases Fantasyland Attractions Opening Dates

Some parts of the Fantasyland expansion at the Magic Kingdom have already had soft openings for the guests. However there are still a lot of additions and renovations that are still being worked on.

Last week, Disney parks released a projected timeline for a few more of the Fantasyland area rides and attractions.

The next area to open will be the remainder of Storybook Circus. This will include the second half of the Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction and the Casey Jr. Splash ‘n’ Soak Station. This should be open by July 2012.

Then around the 2012 holiday season they will open most of the rest of the attractions in Fantasyland. This will include Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Gaston’s Tavern (which will not serve alcohol since the Magic Kingdom is a dry park), and Ariel’s Grotto.

The final attraction to open will be the all new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a steel coaster based on the film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which won’t open until 2014.
