More info about the FantasyLand Expansion:

The land is currently undergoing a large expansion and renovation. “The New Fantasyland will be constructed in phases with most new experiences open by 2013.”

Recent conceptual artwork for the expansion shows several new additions and changes. Included is a new dark ride themed to Disney’s 1989 film The Little Mermaid (also opening at Disney California Adventure) and an area themed to Disney’s 1991 film Beauty and the Beast featuring The Beast’s Castle with a new dining experience, Gaston’s tavern, and Belle’s cottage.

Snow White’s Scary Adventures will be removed and an area themed to Disney’s 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be built. It will feature Snow White’s cottage and The Seven Dwarfs mine train roller coaster ride. Princess Fairytale Hall, a new Disney Princess meet and greet will be established where Snow White’s Scary Adventures currently exists.

Mickey’s Toontown Fair closed permanently in February 2011 in order to make way for the expansion. Some elements of Mickey’s Toontown Fair will be demolished and others will be re-themed to a new Storybook Circus area. An expanded Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride will be built with an interactive queue. The Barnstormer at Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm will be re-themed to The Great Goofini.”
