We just got back and it looks like they've made quite a bit of progress! I would be very surprised if it's a whole year until they open this. I'd say 9 months tops! It looks pretty impressive!

They've only said 2014 as far as I know. I can't wait. It looks awesome.

I would disagree with this. The side facing Mermaid is coming along good, probably because they want to get the shops back there open as soon as possible, but the other side has a long way to go. The whole things is going to be covered in rock-work when it's done and that kind of detail takes a lot of time. The rock work on Be Our Guest took well over a year to complete.

We did Dine with an Imagineer with the project manager for New Fantasyland and he said the mine coaster would be done in early 2014. So far, the project hasn't run into any delays.

Planning an early May 2014 trip so here's hoping it's done by then. Hopefully it lives up to the hype, but I doubt it.

I think that theming plays a big part here if you are not looking for a thrill ride. Many people love the seven dwarfs. I just hope its better the Ariel one. And is more like space mountain than barnstormer.

We are also really looking forward to it bc my wife will likely be able to ride- she can do fast, but not up and down- it is my understanding there is literally no vertical movement. Even the tiny drop at end of test track turns her stomach for hours afterward

mine train

its scheduled for 2014 but a cast member told me that they are ahead of schedule and it might preview at the end of this year. I was also told its going to be a combination of a roller coaster like Big Thunder Mountain and the Indiana Jones ride in Disneyland. Looks pretty awesome!

I wouldn't necessarily believe what cast members tell you. They are certainly not told that information
