History and Trivia

  • At this location: Fantasyland is one the Magic Kingdom's original lands, and while it could be argued that it's size hasn't technically changed, the removal of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea lagoon makes it seem smaller.
  • The Land's History: Fantasyland opened with 11 attractions, six of which still exist. The five that have disappeared over the years are 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (now paved over), Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (now The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh), Mickey Mouse Revue (now Mickey's PhilharMagic), Snow White's Scary Adventures (now Princess Fairytale Hall), and the Skyway to Tomorrowland (now simply gone).
  • 1994 was a time of change for Fantasyland as the area was generally spruced up and reorganized. In addition to 20,000 Leagues closing, Snow White's Scary Adventures was significantly updated and entirely new Dumbo the Flying Elephant was built from scratch. Several stores and restaurants were consolidated, moved, or changed.
  • Snow White's Scary Adventures was closed in 2012 to make way for a princess meet-and-greet location.
  • Storybook Circus opened in 2012 with a relocated double Dumbo ride, as well as other attractions where the old Toontown Fair used to be.
  • All of the New Fantasyland expansion (Be Our Guest restaurant, Gaston's Tavern, Little Mermaid attraction, Enchanted Tales with Belle) except the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train opened in 2012.
