At the 2009 D23 expo the Fantasyland Expansion was announced to a group of cheering fans. The expansion would double the size of Fantasyland while adding two new rides, and brand new magical experiences.

In my opinion one of the coolest areas is the Beauty and the Beast area,  here you will be able to meet with Belle, and eat in Gaston's Tavern and be waited on in the Be Our Guest Restaurant.

Sadly Snow White's Scary Adventure will be closing to accomodate a Princess meet and greet, it doesn't seem fair to me, but if it will make merchandising happy then fine.

One of the first areas to open will be the Storybook Circus, this area will take up the area that the now closed Mickey's Toontown Circus took up. The area will feature a remodeled version of Goofy's Barnstormers, where it will be turned into the Great Gofini.

Storybook Circus will also be home to a new two spinner Dumbo the Flying Elephant. Family games and interactivity will be present inside the Big Top, as you wait to fly with Dumbo.

The two brand new attractions are Ariel's Undersea Adventure and The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train's ride cars will swing back and forth, with each turn of the track. The ride will feature music from the classic Disney film along with animated figures of Snow White and the Dwarfs.

The Little Mermaid Attraction will be very similar to the new attraction in California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort where you board a clam shell Omnimover and go under the sea.
