‘Fantasyland Expansion’ at Magic Kingdom Gets Official Site Page
Although for the most part, there’s nothing new that’s currently mentioned there, the official Walt Disney World site has now added a New Fantasyland Expansion page which details some of the additions being added to the Magic Kingdom theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort.
One element that does appear to be new, however, or at least not easily found with a Google search, is the Casey Jr. Roundhouse which will be located adjacent to the
Toontown Fantasyland train station and will feature a ‘circus-themed immersive’ water play area. Little ones will ‘splish and splash as Casey Jr. billows off cool steam and water squirts from playful monkeys, elephants and camels.’
We’re just splishing thinking about it.
Another minor attraction that made the list is Scuttle’s Scavenger Hunt which will be an interactive game outside the Ariel’s Grotto meet & greet. Scuttle will be on hand to assist guests in finding ‘seagull’s treasures from the Human World, like a dinglehopper or a bulbous snarfblatt.’
Lastly of note is the mention of the Princess Fairytale Hall which will eventually replace Snow White’s Scary Adventures. With Ariel and Belle having their own unique meet and greet experiences, the new page mentions only Aurora, Cinderella and Tiana as appearing here. Based on existing and recent meet and greets, on the surface, this appears to be salt on the wound for Snow White.
UPDATE #1 – 06/01/11 – It appears Walt Disney World has removed the page for the time being. For your convenience, we are now offering it here in PDF form: New Fantasyland Expansion Page
