Disney has released a stunning video of the interior of the Be Our Guest Restaurant in New Fantasyland. The sound-bites are from Chris Kelly (Show Producer, Walt Disney Imagineering) and Tim Warzecha (Senior Project Manager, Walt Disney Imagineering):

This video is released today as Disney formally announced that Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Tales with Belle, Gaston’s Tavern, Ariel’s Grotto, and Under the sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid will not open until Holiday 2012. The Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station and the second Dumbo spinner will open July.

  • So…if all these things are going to open Holiday 2012 (which I interpret to be December-ish) my big question is why the Seven Dwarves Mine Ride is not going to open until 2014.  That would be more than a year after everything else opens.  Why is it going to take that long and not open in Summer 2013?  Does anyone know why it's going to take a year and a half to build this one attraction?

    • I have a feeling (by looking at all the concept art) that Seven Dwaves Mine Train is going to be "underground" or at least in a giant show building of some form.   I think they are currently building the ride system and tracks and when that is finished the EXTERIOR building will be built around it and probably eventually covered with 'hillsides and trees'.   Similar to what was done with the BeOurGuest building and Mermaid.  Almost EXACTLY what was done with Everest.  
       I think most of Fantasyland will be BEHIND Seven Dwarves when it's all finished.  That would be something that would take an extra year or so…
