My last post was about my weekend previewing the New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
- Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid
After lunch my friends and I check out the ride Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid. The queue was a long winding maze through caves littered with all sorts of who’s-its and what’s-its from a shipwreck. Keep your eye out for the blue craps and they help they need sorting out all the debris. The ride takes you through the Little Mermaid story using all the tricks Disney has perfected over the years. It laid out very similar to the Finding Nemo ride at EPCOT.
- Gaston’s Tavern
The tavern has great decor recreating the overt manliness of Gaston including a chandelier made of deer antlers. Unfortunately they don’t serve real beer and instead serve Lefou’s brew. It’s no-sugar added frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam. It tasted like they took Gaston’s ball sweat and mix it with apple juice flavored vomit from the spinning tea cup ride.
Overall one can tell the New Fantasyland is geared towards those who like the Disney Princesses and probably are at the park wearing a princess outfit. It will not be on the top of my list to go back to over and over when I visit Magic Kingdom (that what Pirates of the Caribbean is for). As always though I am amazed how much detail Disney achieves. Check out the pictures from the happiest place on earth to see for yourself.
