Construction on the last attraction remaining to be completed for the New Fantasyland expansion at the Magic Kingdom has taken some exciting leaps since we last checked in. Although they weren’t testing on the day I was there, as you can see above, a complete train has been added to the tracks of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster. That’s an exciting bit of progress, but the attraction still is set to open sometime in 2014 with no official date yet announced.
Here’s more video from around the mountain and through the peek windows. Sadly the windows are getting progressively dirtier, but you can still make out most of the detail. I’m most excited about how the buildings that will house the entrance and exit queue are coming along. Notice the steel construction, gotta be hurricane proof in Orlando.
Thanks for watching. I’ve added a few photos below the jump if you can’t watch the video:
I can’t wait to see this with all the details filled in. Like the Matterhorn at Disneyland, you’ll be able to walk all the way around this mountain, so the detail has to be lush.
I can’t wait for this baby to open!!!
Thank you, I plan to go to Disney World in January. I have great expectations for this new attraction. Now, I won’t be disappointed that it’s not opporating yet.
I’m just looking back at this now. Thanks to Huffington Post for the link to this article. Three days after posting this, I collapsed from an occluded artery in my heart. Turns out it was a defect I had from birth, a few days later I had surgery to correct the defect and now I’m in recovery. If all goes well, I’ll visit the Magic Kingdom this weekend and return with another update from New Fantasyland and The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Can’t wait to share it with you all.
