New Fantasyland website

Are you looking forward to the new Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World? If so, Disney has released a new minisite to tease and tantalize with hints about all of the wonder that will soon be revealed. Both the website and a new trailer tell of a land under a curse, where you can be the hero that breaks the spell and reveals all. To be that hero, you simply need to add your email address to be informed when the curse has been broken.

The Fantasyland expansion includes Storybook Circus, where Dumbo flies and the Casey Junior train can be found, Under the Sea: The Journey of the Little Mermaid, a new Little Mermaid clamshell ride similar to Nemo at EPCOT, Belle's Village, which features Gaston's Tavern, Maurice's Workshop for Storytime with Belle, and the Be Our Guest Restaurant, based on the Beast's castle. All of these areas are scheduled to open on December 6, 2012, with a Passholder preview on November 19, 2012. Sometime in 2013, a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride will also be added.

I'm really excited to see the new Fantasyland, although I'll probably have to wait until sometime next year. The photos and videos of the behind the scenes work that Disney has released have been amazing! Every detail is being carefully attended to and the Be Our Guest Restaurant is just beautiful. I've always wanted to go inside the Beast's castle, and now I will get a chance to do just that. What are you looking forward to the most?
