Updated on November 10, 2014

Magic Kingdom

Seven Dwarfs Mine, The New Fantasyland, Storybook Circus, and The Barnstormer are just a few of the new things that are featured in the Magic Kingdom. Enter the Enchanted Forest and join the magic of Prince Eric’s Castle.

Walt Disney World an enchanting theme park that’s not just for children, but for all ages. Enter America’s most popular vacation destination, where the vacationer can enjoy four theme parks, two water parks, world class shopping, golfing and so much more.

Recently, Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World Resort, Florida experienced the largest expansion since it opened in 1971. The opening of The New Fantasyland has brought new life to Fantasyland, not that I found the old Fantasyland any less than perfect. With this addition Fantasyland has doubled in size, and fantasy.

The New Fantasyland is landscaped in enchanting Disney style. Enter a world of mountains, mines. castles, and enchantment and lose yourself and leave your cares behind.

I have recently been able to experience the New Fantasyland, we entered Prince Eric’s Castle and took a magical clamshell ride enjoying Ariel’s Adventures under the sea in ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid. We couldn’t help but sing along as we rode through one of Disney’s newest ride.

Do you have smaller children? If so, you will love Belle’s Cottage and Enchanted Tales with Belle. Many of the characters come to life ~ the wardrobe, teapot and more children and adults will enjoy this time with Belle and friends.

I’m sure that no one will miss the Seven Dwarfs Mine. This is an amazing train ride through the mine of the seven Dwarfs. This is a family friendly ride that will tickle your inner child, parents and children alike will love this ride.

Are you planning a trip to Walt Disney World? Have you heard about the new Magic Bands? They’re amazing! You can link your meal plan, fast passes, room key, and credit card to the Magic Band. This adds to the magic of your experience. The Magic Bands personalize your experience and make it completely yours.

The fast pass is a great way to make the best of your time in the parks. You get your fast passes for the rides that you really want to ride, reserve a spot to watch parades, shows and even fireworks. Disney never ceases to amaze me and just about everyone else in the world.

No matter what time of year you choose to visit the Walt Disney Theme Parks, there’s something for everyone. If dining is high on your list of things to do then you can enjoy the many world class restaurants on property. Disney has more than 200 dining locations and they range from casual to elegant Disney signature dining.

The Disney dining plan may be pre-purchased as a part of your vacation package. Disney offers so many different world cuisines, along with character dining again something for everyone.

One of the newest dining experiences is located in the New Fantasyland. Gaston’s Tavern and the Be Our Guest Restaurant. Be Our Guest Restaurant is a quick service restaurant by day and by night a table service restaurant.

If you have children, don’t miss the T Rex Restaurant in Downtown Disney. You will never have to worry about entertaining the children while waiting on your food when you dine at this amazing restaurant. Meteor Shower included!

In the words of Walt Disney himself ~ If you can dream it, you can do it.



The Walt Disney World parks are looking to make some interesting changes in the next few years. The huge hat that dominates Hollywood Studios is to be removed. I didn't think it was meant to be a permanent structure, but it will be different without it.

It seems that things are always changing in Walt Disney World, but that's the way of things. I am sure we will miss some of the things that are going away, but something equally as wonderful will replace it.
