Were you worried how long you'd be in that area to plan around it? It could take between 1-3 hrs I estimate maybe a bit longer until the new area excitement tapers off. With the mine train still to come late 2014 it probably will be quite a busy, lose track of your time, area. So watch your watch carefully if you have reservations or need to be somewhere.

A new set of restrooms (which would allow them to close the existing ones next to Peter Pan's Flight to make way for a new interactive queue), plus a new alternative walkway that will end between the Haunted Mansion and the Yankee Trader shop.

That area is also supposed to include a new permanent meet-and-greet area for Rapunzel & Flynn Rider.

I think from what I've read, the Meet and Greet area is still up for debate. It's pretty much agreed by most watchers that the Tower will be there up on the hill, But it's not yet agreed on if there will be a meet located there near the bathrooms [Crowd flow, and queue area blocking off part of the walkway designed to ease congestion], or if Rapunzel (and Flynn?) will be joining the other princesses at the Fairy Tale Banquet Hall.

Kind of like a big eyesore to welcome you to the new fantasyland

One reason it was done last is because it was a last-minute replacement for the original plan. Originally where the mine Train is going was supposed to be just a couple nicely themed M&G locations for a couple of the princesses.

I know there aren't any firm opening dates for the mine train. But, do we know what part of the 2014 year they are projecting it to open? I'm thinking of doing our 2014 trip in May to also experience Star Wars weekend & wondering if it should be open for that month.

I am not 100% but I thought I read somewhere early 2014. I could be wrong

It will be early 2014. It should be late 2013 though but they are playing it safe I bet. Two and a half years is an obscene amount of time to build a single ride. I think that was the amount of time they spent on the entire Cars Land.
