Welcome to the New Fantasyland
On December 6, Walt Disney World opened several new attractions and restaurants as part of the New Fantasyland, including: Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, Enchanted Tales With Belle, Gaston’s Tavern and Be Our Guest Restaurant. These new areas, based on Disney’s most beloved fairy tales, join the nearby newly expanded Storybook Circus area, which features new shopping, two Dumbo rides, a meet-and-greet area, a Casey Jr. Splash Zone and an updated Barnstormer starring the Great Goofini.
But the park isn’t done with the expansion. Late 2013, early 2014 will bring a new princess meet and greet (currently housed on Main Street), a Tangled area near “it’s a small world” and a new thrill ride: The Seven Dwarfs Mine Car (which Imagineers put somewhere between Barnstormer and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad as far as thrill factor).
So how does your family seamlessly add the new attractions to your next visit? Don’t worry – you won’t need a spell, a magic mirror or an enchanted rose, just some planning and patience.
