Sneak Preview Fantasy Land Photos!
Guests at the Magic Kingdom got an early sneak peek of the new Fantasyland expansion during a surprise dress rehearsal on Friday. Weeks before publicly announced preview dates, this morning Walt Disney World quietly soft opened the New Fantasyland expansion area of the Magic Kingdom to all park attendees.
Disney opened the new attractions to guests, posting a sign that read “Welcome to our Dress Rehearsal of New Fantasyland.”
The new area of Fantasyland doesn’t officially open until Dec. 6, and even guests with annual passes have to wait until Monday for a chance to get tickets to passholder-only previews in November.
Fantasyland is the largest expansion in Walt Disney World’s history. The first phase, Storybook Circus, opened in July, featuring revamped Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Barnstormer rides, and introducing the Casey Jr. Splash and Soak Station.
Guests at the Magic Kingdom were allowed to preview the new section of the park, including Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, the new Ariel’s Grotto, Enchanted Tales with Belle and Gaston’s Tavern.
The expansion continues next year, with the opening of Princess Fairytale Hall, a character greeting area featuring the Disney Princesses.
The new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride, is scheduled to open in 2014.
