With the opening of Princess Fairytale Hall, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is the last major piece of New Fantasyland still set to open at the Magic Kingdom. Click the video accompanying this article to hear about the ride's current status from David Minichiello.

The new family roller coaster is coming along nicely. The trains have been tested, and workers are visible above the construction fence nearly every day. You can also get a straight-on look through the peepholes in the fence. If you'd like to see some current construction scenes, jump to this article.

Once the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train opens in 2014, the New Fantasyland expansion will be complete. Besides the new princess area, it also includes a ride based on The Little Mermaid, a story time experience with Belle herself, and an amazing restaurant in the Beast's castle. When you enter the main dining room, you'll feel like you stepped into the expansive ballroom in the movie.

I had the truly magical opportunity to dance in that ballroom with Tony from "Dancing With the Stars." Jump to this article for the video. For a CGI ride on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, go to this article.
