Written By Carlos Braga

The Fantasyland is one of the largest and most special areas of Magic Kingdom, because it really is a world of fantasies.

That's where you can find the Disney Princesses, such as Ariel, Bella, Cinderella and Elena. In addition to the local attractions, there is a specific one where you visit a castle with several princesses.

Fantasyland is just behind Cinderella's Castle, but you can also reach it via the Tomorrowland or from Liberty square. To better understand the logistics, see the updated maps of Orlando parks.

Fantasyland attractions

The Magic Kingdom has several attractions, without a doubt, and most of them are in Fantasyland. Here, you will find more children's attractions, not too extreme.

However, this does not mean that adults will be bored in this area. Fantasyland really stirs everyone's imagination and, for me, is one of the most special areas in the world. Magic Kingdom.

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

A classic park must have a carousel right?! That's why the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel is very popular with visitors.

It is right in the center of Fantayland and attracts a lot of attention, as it is huge! If you stay overnight at Magic Kindgom, stop by! The lighting is beautiful and gives an even more special charm to this attraction.

There is no height restriction, but remember that young children must be accompanied by a guardian. However, the attraction does not have FastPass+.

Mickey's PhilharMagic

Mickey's Philhar Magic is a 4D theater, that is, you will feel some sensations such as smell, splashes of water and heat. Despite the name, the protagonist is Donald Duck.

He will go through several adventures among the Disney classics, as he did a magic wrong with Mickey's hat. In the end, don't forget to look back!

Here, there is also no height or age restriction. This attraction accepts FasPass+, but chances are you won't use it. To better understand Mickey's Philhar Magic, click here, because we already made a special post about it.

Peter Pan's Flight

In this attraction, you can climb the aboard Peter Pan's pirate ship. Just like the boy who doesn't grow up, you'll be able to fly over scenes from his story and other Disney classics.

Despite 'flying', the attraction is not extreme and even children and elderly people will be able to have fun. There are also no height restrictions and Peter Pan's Flight accepts the FastPass +.

It's a Small World

It's a Small World is present in all Disney parks around the world as it celebrates children and world peace. Therefore, it has a characteristic soundtrack and a very peaceful ride.

In this post, we talk about the history of this attraction and what it is like. Despite being 'silly', it has its historical importance for the Magic Kingdom. Therefore, I think It's a Small World deserves to be visited at least once.

The attraction has no restrictions, either age or height. Also, know that you can use your FastPass+ here.

Under the Sea? Journey of The Little Mermaid

Do you like Ariel's story? If yes, then don't miss this attraction! Here, you can visit the most important scenes from the Little Mermaid movie, on an adventure under the sea.
