Walt Disney World this morning confirmed (sort of) some opening dates for the remaining new attractions in its ongoing Fantasyland refurbishment.Tweet
The second carousel on the new Dumbo (the one relocated from its old site), and the Casey Jr. sprayground will open this July.

The Little Mermaid ride and Be Our Guest restaurant will open this "holiday season," presumably sometime between mid-November and mid-December.

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster will not open until 2014.
In addition, Disney confirmed that the track and physical ride will not change on the revamped Test Track, which will open on an unspecified date later this year. All of the ride's show scenes will change, however, and some of the new scenes will be digital, in addition to traditional, physical show scenes.
