Thank you to those that have shared the links to the new Fantasyland updates , it is exciting to see how the work is coming along nicely. We were just there last month and even though a lot of new things have been built since our September 2010 trip, it was nothing like what we are seeing now (can't believe the construction is so close to the walls). We are going to Disney in January for a short getaway trip, but I really would like to take a trip later on in the year (Fall) so we can be there after Phase I opens...especially the new Ariel ride and the Circus area. Now I will just have to convince DH to take a second trip down so we can see it for ourselves

It you look at the concept art in the first post you'll see a Castle Wall. That wall will cross right over the area where Dumbo is currently located.

Does this mean those bathrooms in the corner over there are gone?

Eeek, the backup of cars on Tomorrowland Speedway
Reminds me of the DC beltway

Thanks for the video - always a treat to watch the progress.

My family was looking to take a trip to disney world in late-summer of 2013. I know most of the fantasyland expansion will be completed by then but i heard rumors that the Seven Dwarf Mine Train will not be completed by then. I was wondering if someone could tell me if the fantasyland expansion is ahead of schedule and will be completed by the time my family go in mid August of 2013, or if we would have to wait a year to see the completed fantasyland? It would be greatly appreciated if someone could answer my question

There are not official dates at this point except for the vague 2012, but I think it's a pretty safe bet that everything will be complete before August 2013, except the Mine Train ride. The Mine Train was a last minute addition so it's progress is currently way behind the rest of the area and construction on it has not even started yet.

Thanks Dan. We just hope the Seven Dwarf Mine Train will catch up with the rest of the fantasyland expansion and open ahead of schedule. This ride seems like it will be the best to open , in our opinion.
