All I've heard from Disney is 2014 concerning the coaster and 2013 for the princess M&G.

Are there any other parts of the FE?

Well, there are those fancy Rapunzel restrooms..........

I'm acutally as excited for all the construction walls to come down as I am for the coaster itself.

I believe everything else has opened by now, though the unfinished Mine Train ride is a huge walled-off area that makes it feel far less complete.

I've heard about those and seen pictures. I wish it was a Rapunzel/Flynn Rider M&G as well - not a fan of possibly losing Naveen if Tiana goes to the big princess M&G... wish the princes could stick around. But, alas.

they should have put the mine way in the back of FL so we didn't have to see it so much.

Maybe so, but I don't mind too much. It looks like it will be a real centerpiece of the area when finished, and will be a nice thing to have in the middle of the expansion. Lots of iconic things we take for granted now at WDW were plagued by construction walls that frustrated guests for a long time in the beginning.

The mine train was actually a late addition to the overall plan. That area was supposed to have interactive meet & greets for Cinderella and Belle, similar to ETWB I believe.

I think I will like having it right where it is when it's done. I will enjoy the view of the rest of Fantasyland from the ride.

I think the see through part of the construction walls was a cute addition. It'll be more exciting to look through once progress is made...

I'm glad WDW opted for this mine train rather than interactive princess m&g's - though they would've been really awesome... the coaster is more attractive to the general public (boys, adults).

I agree. Although I would have enjoyed seeing what they could do with those other stories after seeing what they did with Belle. I think the animatronics and interactive show make for a very unique Disney attraction.

But that line moves so stinkin slow I'm not sure I could have handled 2 more of those. And it frustrated me greatly that it sort of took Belle offline as a "meetable" character in the traditional sense in the MK.

To add to the 7DMTC, it swings side to side due to the g force when your making turns. There will be limits to how far it swings out to make it safe.

Cool. I've only heard about the sneak peek areas, not seen them. The one element of the decor on the construction walls that confuses me is the "painting the roses red" scene which seems to take us to an intermingling of stories as exists in Disney/ABC's "Once Upon a Time":

Maybe that's a nod to Alice's Teacups which are nearby.

That has to be it Now the honey pots/balloon bit make more sense too, I didn't even notice they were out of place with the dwarves - that's how good these artists are.
Good thinking. Thanks!

In reference to the Princess M&G...
This site has Tiana, Snow White, Aurora, Cinderella, Jasmine and Rapunzel as princesses... did they just cover all their bases but probably won't use them all or if they do, it'd be roulette style as previously mentioned?

http://wdwnewstoday.com/archives/10398 - was there going to be a Wonderland in the original expansion?

Wonderland looks so cool!! Oh well, I'm excited to have The Little Mermaid area and I'm sure Snow White's area will be classic.
