First let me say that my daughters are ages four and three. They love all princesses and each of their birthdays has had a princess theme, except one, though that was Minnie Mouse, who we believe is just as special as the princesses. Of their seven combined birthdays, three have been Little Mermaid themed, which brings me to the first addition to Fantasyland that I am excited about ~ Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid. Now this will not be a thrilled ride, which is fine by me, and I have a feeling my girls are going to love this, which is why I am excited about it. Not only do Hayley and Emily love Ariel and all her friends, but they also love to sing and dance to the amazing songs of The Little Mermaid. I see this ride immediately becoming one of their favorites.
Even better, and I believe certainly needed in the Magic Kingdom, another restaurant called Be Our Guest Restaurant located in Beast’s castle will be added. Disney plans to use their concept of having a quick service eatery for lunch and transforming the restaurant to a table service restaurant for dinner. I look forward to experiencing this dinner. There are also plans to construct Gaston’s Tavern. Magic Kingdom does not serve alcoholic drinks, so I look forward to seeing what types of drinks this tavern will serve, though I wonder if they will use “antlers in all of the decorating?” Ok, that is a line from one of my girls’ favorite songs from the movie - I thought I’d throw that in there!
There are many other additions to Fantasyland that I really look forward to seeing, but these are the additions I think my daughters will enjoy the most. As for my son, I am not sure he is looking forward to these, but Tomorrowland Speedway, his favorite attraction, will still be there, so he will be quite happy with that! Thinking about it, I don’t know how we will ever get the girls out of Fantasyland with all these new princess experiences around!
