Walt Disney World announced today that previews for the latest phase of its Magic Kingdom Fantasyland expansion will begin on November 19. The official grand opening of the new additions will happen on December 6.Tweet

This phase of the Fantasyland expansion includes the Under the Sea: Journey of The Little Mermaid ride, Be Our Guest table-service-for-dinner restaurant, the quick-service Gaston’s Tavern, and the Enchanted Tales with Belle meet-and-greet.
We'd heard that previews for these new attractions will open for annual passholders in November. No word yet on when previews will be open to the public. As with most soft openings, there likely won't be a public announcement. Just show up and see if you get in. Also, no word on if Disney will be opening up a paid preview event, as it did for Cars Land at Disney California Adventure.
The final phase in the expansion, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train family roller coaster, will open in 2014.
