Fantasyland is a child’s as well as a child-at-heart’s delight. On cobblestone streets inspired by medieval villages of France, Germany, Switzerland, and England, you’ll find fairy-tale cottages along with the park’s icon, Sleeping Beauty Castle. Favorite and nostalgic attractions such as Matterhorn Bobsleds, Mad Tea Party, “it’s a small world”, and King Arthur Carrousel will charm you time and time again.

At the Fantasyland Theatre, the wise sorcerer, Yen Sid, tells of a wondrous map with the power to take dreamers to any place imaginable. When his young apprentice, Mickey Mouse, tries to paint the map’s one unfinished spot, he is off on a fantastic adventure. There are music and characters from Tangled, The Jungle Book, Pocahontas, and Mulan, and a grand finale with Tiana and her showboat. 22 minutes.
This is one of the most endearing attractions in Fantasyland, sure to steal your heart. Though old-fashioned and indeed not a thrill a minute, you’ll find it hard to resist “flying” with Peter Pan, Wendy, and the boys on gently soaring pirate ships. Your adventure begins in the Darling nursery, “and off we go,” flying over the twinkling lights of London with Big Ben and the London Bridge standing out against a starry, moonlit night (definitely the best part of the ride). Next stop Never Never Land where far below are glistening waterfalls, glowing volcanoes, sunning mermaids, an Indian Village, the Lost Boys, and Captain Hook’s ship. All the while, the movie’s theme song tells us, “you can fly.” The sight of Wendy walking the plank is hair-raising, but of course, Peter Pan saves the day. This ride is a real charmer and perfect for all ages.
FASTPASS. 3-minute ride.
