Fantasyland Grand Opening 2012-Day 1

Posted: 12-06-12

I, Robyn Ayers, had the privilege to travel to Walt Disney World today for the grand opening celebration of the new Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. This is truly an honor to be able to attend such a special event. Dream Makers Vacation Services has the honor of being an Ear Marked agency, which gives us special opportunities and knowledge to share with our clients. I arrived this morning and headed to the Disney Welcome Center at Orlando International Airport. This is where you board the complimentary Disney’s Magical Express for your transfers to your resort hotel. The best part is Disney sends you luggage tags which allows you to skip baggage claim and Disney will collect your bags and deliver them to your room.

I am staying at the Beach Club which is a great deluxe resort located within walking distance to Epcot. You can also easily take a boat over to Hollywood Studios. This afternoon we headed over for a VIP preview of the new Splitsville luxury bowling lanes located at Downtown Disney. It has two levels with bowling lanes on each level. They also have pool tables and have a full service menu. Today we sampled cheeseburger sliders, turkey club sandwiches, pizza and sushi. Everything I tried was really good. Splitsville will be opening to the public very soon and is definitely worth a visit.

Tonight was the preview party of the all new Fantasyland. This was an invitation only private event and we were honored to be invited. As we entered Fantasyland there were tables of food, drinks and desserts spread out throughout the area. After eating we wandered through all of the new attractions. We entered through Storybook Circus which has old favorites like The Barnstormer and Dumbo. There are now two Dumbo rides and a play area for the kids while they are waiting to ride. Instead of standing in line you receive a pager and head into the play area until it’s your turn to ride. This is a great addition to a family favorite!

We then made our way to the new Enchanted Forest which is home to the new Be Our Guest restaurant. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the details inside are incredible. You will also find Belle’s Cottage here which is an interactive walk through which is a first for Disney. Ariel’s Grotto and the new Under the Sea –Journey of the Little Mermaid ride are located here as well. Disney really has done an awesome job with the new Fantasyland and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to experience it tonight.

We ended our fantastic night with a special holiday version of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular. Tomorrow I will be at the official grand opening of Fantasyland and then the opening of Test Track in the evening. More to come from magical Walt Disney World!
