Welcome to the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland!  The pictures of this photo tour came from my own visits to WDW, but I've also tossed in some pictures by fellow MousePlaneteers. They will be credited appropriately throughout the tour.

Of course, Cinderella's Castle is the entryway to Fantasyland. From the park hub and Main Street beyond, everyone that walks through the castle enters a place filled with wonder and whimsy.

Walking through the castle sets the stage for the feudal fare beyond.

One of the not-so-secret secrets of the castle, or more accurately one of it's most-missed details, is the wonderful mosaics depicting Cinderella's story that line the breezeway walls.

Also inside the castle, actually in Cinderella's Royal Table, the restaurant upstairs, heraldic coats-of-arms and banners decorate the hall.

When you exit the castle, you enter a medieval village with shops, restaurants, and of course -- attractions.

Cinderella's Carousel looks pretty quiet in this view, but it's usually buzzing with activity.

Here's a view of Dumbo that guests can't see anymore. It was taken from the Skyway several years ago.
