Fantasyland information

Lonely Planet review

Behind Sleeping Beauty Castle, Fantasyland is filled with the characters of classic children’s stories. If you only see one attraction in Fantasyland, visit It’s a Small World , a boat ride past hundreds of creepy animatronic children from different cultures all singing the annoying theme song in an astounding variety of languages, now joined by Disney characters. Another classic, the Matterhorn Bobsleds is a steel-frame roller coaster that mimics a bobsled ride down a mountain. Fans of old-school attractions will also get a kick out of the Wind in the Willows -inspired Mr Toad’s Wild Ride , a loopy jaunt in an open-air jalopy through London. Younger kids love whirling around the Mad Tea Party teacup ride and King Arthur Carousel , then cavorting with characters in nearby Mickey’s Toontown , a topsy-turvy mini-metropolis where kiddos can traipse through Mickey and Minnie’s houses and dozens of storefronts.
