We go to Walt Disney World a lot. Maybe not as much as some people, but more than most. One of the reasons we keep going back is that there is always something new or something we haven’t gotten around to doing. This past trip, we got to experience most of “New Fantasyland” for the very first time. With so many new additions to the park, we thought it warranted a “10 Best” list of its very own!
1. The Details

to creating the overall feel of New Fantasyland
3. Enchanted Tales with Belle
Now, when we posted about our favorite Character Meet and Greets a while back, we weren’t sure how much interaction there would be between Belle and the participants in the show. We knew that you had to have a part in the play in order to get your picture with Belle, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that Belle took a little time to talk to each one of the guests playing those parts, including our little pepper shaker, Bella.
4. Be Our Guest Restaurant
The restaurant is very large, with 3 separate dining rooms. We got to sit in the ballroom, and we felt like we were sitting inside the movie!
5. Gaston’s Tavern
Also inspired by Beauty and the Beast, Gaston’s Tavern is a not-so-humble establishment in the small provincial town located in the shadow of the Beast’s castle. It’s famous for the Roasted Pork Shank and LeFou’s Brew!
In case you missed it, you can get a more in depth review of Gaston’s Tavern in our post here.
6. Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid
It’s a fun ride with colorful scenes and the great music from the movie. The whole family will enjoy it!
7. Casey Jr. Splash n Soak Station
8. Pete’s Silly Sideshow
In Pete’s Silly Sideshow, you can meet Daisy, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy, all playing their roles as circus performers! We love meeting Disney characters at the parks, and we especially love meeting classic characters in unique attire! We’ll be adding this to our list of favorite character meet and greets!
9. Dumbo the Flying Elephant
10. Tangled area
Concealed in the tree stumps all throughout the seating area are AC and USB charging stations for your electronic devices! A great modern addition to the Magic Kingdom!
