Disney announced details of the plans Tuesday that will double the size of the theme park's Fantasyland section.
The coaster, dubbed the "The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train," will feature vehicles that swing back and forth along a twisting track. And in "Princess Fairytale Hall," Aurora, Cinderella and other Disney princesses will greet guests in a new royal court.
Another new indoor ride with a "Little Mermaid" theme will be like one opening at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., later this year.
The new Fantasyland will open in phases beginning in late 2012.
