New Fantasyland opened for previews last Friday! We had known about the upcoming preview for days, but we were in Pittsburgh until Saturday – we are very happy that our friends Daniel and Corinne Andersson shot footage for us! You can see the video below the photos, they were the very first guests in line, and the very first guests to enter New Fantasyland. We did make it into this area after the Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine Classic on Saturday – tired from our flight, but excited to see the expansion for ourselves. I think we’ve been there 4 times now! We never waited long for Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid (below, left). The longest wait was 20 minutes, but it was more often than not that we walked right on. The Mermaid queue is detailed and exquisite, and there is no way to take a bad photo here (below, right).

We went to the Magic Kingdom in hopes of getting into the soft-opening today of the new Backstage Magic with Mickey Mouse meet and greet – and it was open all day! The newly renamed Town Square Theater (formerly Exposition Hall) is the setting for this new attraction (below, left) that also includes a meet-and-greet with the Disney Princesses. The lobby is beautiful with tile that includes “1901“, the birth year of Walt Disney (below, right).

Today was another picture perfect day in central Florida so we decided to check out what was happening at The Magic Kingdom! We boarded the Walt Disney World Railroad to check out the progress on Mickey’s Toontown Fair when we noticed that Mickey and Minnie Mouse were greeting guests in Frontierland (below left) in addition to Tomorrowland (click HERE for photos & video). We stopped at the Frontierland station to get covergae of this popular twosome! (below, right).
