With the announcement of a July opening for the rest of Storybook Circus and a “in time for the holiday season” opening of the remaining expansion (besides the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster in 2014), construction is in full swing. Above is a view of the second spinner for Dumbo The Flying Elephant which recently had all of the arms installed on the base.
It’s getting harder to see the rolling hills and rocks with all the construction on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It is said that Belle’s Village and the Little Mermaid area won’t be visible from the current Fantasyland once the expansion is complete.
Special scanners for the RFID Fastpass testing are now in place at many of the attractions in Magic Kingdom. Click here to read more about this new Fastpass system.
Remember, The Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid themed areas are set to open this holiday season with the other half of Storybook Circus in July, and Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train set to open by, or in early 2014.
