Hosting nearly twenty million guests each year, Magic Kingdom remains Walt Disney World’s most popular attraction. This year, the park has expanded its famous Fantasy Land, known for its fairytale charm, to include a few of Disney’s favorite characters. Little Mermaid fans will be excited to see that Ariel has made her way to the park and is featured in her own ride – Under the Sea – which takes guests through the classic Disney story of The Little Mermaid. Visitors are also able to enjoy, for the first time, Ariel’s own grotto full of treasures and Prince Eric’s castle!
But Ariel isn’t the only Princess to join Fantasy Land this year. Fans of Beauty and the Beast can get the chance to dine in Beast’s castle at the brand new Be Our Guest restaurant where they are transported into the timeless tale that will bring their dining experience to life. To keep the magic rolling, Fantasy Land has expanded Storybook Circus to offer guests an authentic American circus inspired by the classic film, Dumbo.
The fun won’t stop there, with the opening of the Princess Fairytale Hall, where guests of all ages can meet their favorite Princesses and get their autographs, scheduled to debut later this year. Guests should also keep their eyes open for the unveiling of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train that will offer Disney’s more adventurous visitors a chance at an exhilarating ride through the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Even experienced Disney-goers will find new and exciting things in Magic Kingdom’s beloved Fantasy Land!
