Walt Disney World's Fantasyland is undergoing a substantial renovation that will almost double the size of its wing in the Magic Kingdom by 2013.

The features planned for the new wing include: A "major"  attraction featuring Ariel of  "The Little Mermaid," an immersive storytelling experience starring Belle of "Beauty and the Beast," and a new roller coaster -- The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

And for princess-lovers, Cinderella, Aurora and other Disney royalty will hold court in a designated space within Fantasyland. (Translation: It'll be easier to get a photo.)

According to Disney, construction is under way now with some attractions opening in late 2012.
