It's been opening in bits and pieces for a while, but now New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom is officially complete. It reached that status today (May 28) with the official grand opening of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a fun family roller coaster with dark ride elements that literally takes you inside the dwarfs' mine.

This major expansion project at Disney World includes the Be Our Guest restaurant in the Beast's Castle, a story time experience with Belle, a Little Mermaid dark ride complete with a Hidden Mickey that can only be seen once a year in its queue line, two Dumbo rides, and princess greets with favorites including Anna and Elsa.

Now the crown jewel of the area is complete, and families can enjoy an amazing interactive queue line with gem-based games before they board the mine trains and travel through the workplace of the Seven Dwarfs. At the end, you'll even see their cottage, complete with Snow White and the witch with her tempting apple.
