Disneyland just gets happier for princes and princesses throughout the land: Fantasyland at Disneyland Resort is renovated and princesses from stories of every land now have a place to call home.
Over the past several months, I’ve witnessed the Disney Imagineering crew create brand-new experiences for visitors to Fantasyland, and I don’t think guests will be disappointed. First to open was Fantasy Faire, a new royal hall where guests can interact one on one with Rapunzel, Belle, Aurora, Cinderella or any other princesses who may be holding court there that day. Rapunzel and Belle not only call the hall home, but they perform daily in their own shows at the Royal Theatre alongside a pair of vaudeville-style renaissance storytellers — Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones.
Most recently, Disneyland reopened the Fantasyland Theater with a new show, Mickey and the Magical Map. The show features Mickey Mouse interacting with an LED map that takes him to several far away adventures that include a stop in favorite stories such as “The Jungle Book,” “Tangled,” “The Princess and the Frog” and more.

With all of Fantasyland’s fantastic upgrades, I thought that maybe some of the older attractions might have lost their luster. Much to my delight, a turn on Peter Pan’s Flight and Alice In Wonderland, and I realized, there’s just new things to love about the old Disney magic.
