Orlando Theme Park – Fantasyland Expansion Update

Little Mermaid Orlando attraction

Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World recently expanded the “New Fantasyland” with many features now open. We last covered this topic  in March of last year. Since then more Disney characters and themed areas have opened to guests at this Orlando theme park.

The Enchanted Forest features some of our favorite Disney characters from The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. Feast in the castles and taverns and enjoy meeting characters, getting autographs and having your picture taken with Ariel. Relive her tale of finding true love as well as legs! The undersea journey and beyond will expose you to all of the characters – Ariel, Prince Eric, Sebastian, Flounder, Scuttle, King Triton, as well as Ursula, the sea witch who stands at 7.5 feet tall and 12 feet wide!

The other Fantasyland area that is opened is Storybook Circus. It transports guests to another era where the colorful big-top tents feature characters performing astonishing stunts and majestic animals are just part of the spectacular entertainment. The Dumbo ride is now complete and with 2 rides, so there is twice the fun. If you like trains, this is the Orlando theme park for you! The Walt Disney World Railroad and the Fantasyland Train Station provide stops throughout the attraction.

Another train that will be coming around the bend in the future at this Orlando theme park is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. This attraction and the Princess Fairytale Hall are scheduled to open in 2013. If you cannot wait that long to experience Fanstasyland, check out the interactive online experience from your own home! If you can break the curse, you’ll be able to experience mermaids singing, beauties telling tales, beasts that roar and elephants that can fly.

Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom is a few miles from Capone’s Dinner & Show. With so many theme parks and Orlando dinner shows to choose from, a perfect vacation combination would be to experience them both! Multi-day park passes permit visitors to enjoy many days and evenings at the attractions. Pick one evening, skip the theme parks and enjoy Capone’s. Online tickets are half price, and the fun is no fantasy. Your entire gang will enjoy this one!
