B-Roll: New Fantasyland Grand Opening!

Filed in: Magic Kingdom

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.
