This is great i just can't wait to see and ride the finished product. The rest of new fantasyland has looked amazing so far I can't expect this to be any less especially when they have taken this long on this particular thing.

Oh, very exciting! I only wish it would be done by December because I'm not sure when we're going to be back due to TTC after our December trip. Lol. I'm so selfish sometimes when it comes to Disney.

20 years ago when they talked about the "information age"...I'm not sure it was all encompassing.

At best! LOL!

Does anyone think this new FL has been a quality upgrade, especially in light of what Uni and Sea World have/are giving us? you'd have to have tunnel vision...

Agreed again! This isn't Disney taking its time to create something perfect, this is stringing out development so they can spread the costs ver a longer budgetary period while still looking like they're investing in the parks.

Despite my love for Disney I think I'd actually like Universal to blow them out the water when Harry Potter phase 2 arrives (in what HALF the time it's taken Disney to upgrade Fantasyland?). I feel there's a real arrogance at Disney that needs shaking out of them!

I think it's ridiculous it's taking over a year for a ride to be completed since New Fantasyland's Grand Opening. We are going to WDW in November and probably won't be returning for a while so it is disappointing that we won't get to see the Mine Train.

I think it's silly for the new fantasyland expansion to take so long- noticeably the time the Mine Train is taking to get built AFTER the New Fantasyland opening. I mean- there's really no reason it couldn't have opened at the same time as the rest of New Fantasyland. Obviously Disney wants to stretch things out though.
