Preview of the Fantasyland expansion!

The Fantasyland expansion has been one of the biggest 'updates' to a Disney theme park since they built Animal Kingdom from the ground up! Considering this is only an 'expansion', it feels almost like they are building and entirely seperate park! With so many new attractions, stores, dining and experiences on offer - your days in the Magic Kingdom just got a whole lot longer (not that I'm complaining!).

I come across this video a few days ago and it gives amazing insight on what's going behind those 'excuse our dust' boards!

There's a lot of footage there I haven't seen anywhere else online, especially the likes of the Wardrobe and animated Lumiere from beauty and the Beast! The grand ballroom is already breathtaking and that's before the furniture has even gone in!

What am I most excited about?

  • Be our Guest restaurant - The fact that it is a counter service during the day and a table service during the night really does open it up to everyone's budget and dining plan. I can see this idea being implemented elsewhere in the future! 
  • Gaston's Tavern - They have the recreated and installed the painting directly from the film! 
  • Journey of the little Mermaid - It's like the show from Hollywood Studios meets the clam shells of Finding Nemo, what's not to like?
Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid where two of my favourite films growing up and seeing them brought to life on the grandest of scales just fill's the heart of the little girl inside of me! 

What are you most looking forward to?

Until next time,
