While attending a press event at Disney World last week, the president of Disney unveiled exciting plans to expand Fantasyland by 50%. Construction is already underway, in what will be the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history!
The multi-year expansion will bring attractions such as:
- The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – a swaying, swerving train of mine cars that will take guests on a wild ride through the diamond mine of the Seven Dwarfs.
- Dumbo the Flying Elephant (a favorite at WDW) will be receiving a clone, with Fantasyland featuring not one but two circling carousels.
- Under the Sea: Journey of The Little Mermaid will offer guests the opportunity to join Ariel and her friends an an exciting adventure below and above the waves, all against a music backdrop taken from the classic film.
In addition to all of these new attractions, Disney will also be providing more ways for guests to interact with favorite Disney princesses.
As Fantasyland is my daughters’ favorite part of Magic Kingdom, this is exciting news indeed!
