6 Facts and Secrets about Fantasyland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom

6 – That is a huge expansion.

When Fantasyland was expanded to add New Fantasyland it was the largest expansion in the entire history of the Magic Kingdom.  The entire area of Fantasyland was made up of 10 acres before the expansion.  Now the land totals around 21 acres, more than doubling the original size and presence of Fantasyland.  It is no surprise that this level of detail and expansion would be put into this land as the characters and theming of Fantasyland is what guests expect to see when they come to Disney World and is a perfect picture of the storybook type feel that includes so many of the popular Disney films and stories all in one place.

About Christy Caby

Hi! I’m Christy, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. He proposed at Disney, we honeymooned at Disney, we started bringing our boys before they were born and then as early as 8 weeks old. We then continued to vacation to Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what makes more sense than just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way. I love to share this love and passion for all things Disney with the world and hope that I can help others appreciate the magic that Walt Disney World has to offer!
