I just read on the the Disney Parks Blog that they will partner with Walt Disney Imagineering to bring us a live chat with Walt Disney Imagineer Chris Beatty on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 1:30 p.m. EST to talk about…  THE NEW WALT DISNEY WORLD FANTASYLAND EXPANSION!!

I can’t wait to see the new exciting rides and attractions at the new Fantasyland.  While an exact opening date hasn’t been announced, there is going to be one phase opened in Fall, 2012 and another in 2013.  The first phase is going to include an new Ariel ride that sounds amazing.  Perfect for children of all ages, but I’m thinking that Rosie will be the perfect age – 6 years old – next year.  She is in love with all things princesses, and there will be lots to see!  One of the things I read though, is that Disney is making a conscious effort to encourage gender-neutrality in the princess rides – boys won’t be embarrassed to say they loved it!

The Ariel ride sounds a bit like the all-time favorite, “It’s A Small World”.  We will ride through a series of scenes that tell the story of Ariel with music and animated figures.  Click to see a video with Chris Beatty to tell you about the Under the Sea ride.

Other attractions in the new Fantasyland include an expanded Dumbo ride (no more crazy-long waits in a windy maze).  New restaurants in the Beauty and Beast section – Gaston’s Pub and Be Our Guest sound like they will be on our must-try list!  According to the Disney Parks Blog, the Be Our Guest restaurant will be located in the Beast’s castle and offer a lavish dining experience in the castle’s elegant ballroom.  Beauty and the Beast is set in France – I’m guessing the food will be magnifique!

To hear the live chat, go the main page of the Disney Parks Blog  on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 1:30 p.m. EST.

Maybe if I’m lucky enough to go to Disney Social Media Moms Celebration again I can give you a sneak peek *fingers crossed*.
