All New Areas Open in Fantasyland
Fantasyland News to keep you prepared for your trip. The New Fantasyland has given us a lot to talk about in the last few months. It being the largest expansion in Disney history it is not yet completed and things are still being added. Below are a few new pieces of information about what is going on for your upcoming trip.
The Enchanted Forest to Storybook Circus access opens for the busy spring period. The walkway between Storybook Circus and New Fantasyland is now open to allow easier access through that area. Located just by the Little Mermaid attraction, the pathway opens daily at 10am through to 10pm in the evening and is expected to remain open to guests through the busy Spring period in mid April 2013.
Stunningly detailed new Fantasyland restroom area opens in the Magic Kingdom. Replacing the former Fantasyland Skyway station, the new area takes its theme from the movie ‘Tangled,’ and brings a level of detail comparable to a major attraction. Featuring outdoor seating, electrical recharge stations, stroller parking, water features, and it’s own musical score, the area takes restrooms to a whole new level. The theming isn’t just restricted to the exterior either, inside the restrooms are some great details, and on a more functional note, there are automated power towel dispensers and Dyson Air Blade dryers.
The new area greatly opens up the walkway through the Peter Pan and Small World section of Fantasyland, and provides additional walkway space directly through to the Haunted Mansion in Liberty Square.
With the opening of the brand new Tangled area restroom section of Fantasyland, the original area restrooms near the Peter Pan queue have now been closed and walled off. It is expected that the space will be reconfigured into an extended interactive queue for Peter Pan.
Trees arrive at the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster. The top layer of rockwork on the Little Mermaid side of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster has only just got underway and already trees and other greenery are starting to appear. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is expected to open in the New Fantasyland in early 2014.
