Disney’s fantasy expands

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.

DisneyWorld opened its new Fantasyland Thursday, the largest expansion project in the park’s 41-year history. It doubles the size of the old Fantasyland, and blends classic Disney characters (like Dumbo, the flying elephant) and newer, popular hits (like “The Little Mermaid”).

New Fantasyland sits just past Cinderella Castle, with two sections: Enchanted Forest, where visitors will find Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” and Ariel from “The Little Mermaid,” and Storybook Circus, which is inspired by the Disney film “Dumbo.”

Among the highlights: a ride called Under the Sea — Journey of the Little Mermaid, which tells Ariel’s story, and Enchanted Tales With Belle, a walk-through experience that features a magical mirror and costumed characters.

Two of New Fantasyland’s highlights have yet to open. A ride called Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is still under construction, as is Princess Fairytale Hall — where guests can meet all of their favorite Disney princesses. The princess experience will open next year and the ride in 2014.
