B-Roll: New Fantasyland Grand Opening!

Filed in: Magic Kingdom Park

Of Magic Kingdom lands, it is the fairest of all, inviting Walt Disney World guests into classic storybook worlds where elephants fly and castles touch the sky, where a beauty meets a beast and a mermaid plays under the sea.

Officially open today for Disney guests, New Fantasyland is Once Upon a Time come true. The celebration drew princes, princesses, a Beast, Hollywood celebrities, and even a fire-breathing dragon!

Representing the largest expansion in the 41-year history of Magic Kingdom, New Fantasyland features attractions, dining, shopping, character interactions, recreation and more – laid out fairy tale-style amid waterfalls, grottoes, arched bridges, forests and circus big tops. A multiyear expansion project, New Fantasyland lies just beyond the existing Fantasyland in the shadows of Cinderella Castle.
