And speaking of the New Fantasyland expansion, the one attraction that is still under construction is Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which is set to open at the park in 2014. This attraction actually hit a milestone earlier this week when our Walt Disney Imagineers placed the first mine train car onto the track for push/pull testing.

Guests who stop by the attraction in coming weeks may catch a glimpse of the car on the track during testing. To learn more about the Imagineering behind this attraction, check out a replay of our live chat with Imagineer Dave Minichiello that took place earlier this week.
