Queuing Under the Sea
The first dress rehearsals of the New Fantasyland addition to the Magic Kingdom is underway. For myself, I have been very excited to see how they would do the queue for The Little Mermaid attraction. I’ve been on the ride at Disney California Adventure, but the attraction here in Florida was to set the ride up in a whole new way. I’m excited to say that the queue delivers! And the result is that the ride feels much more of a total experience as a result. The best way I can compare the two is to say that DCA’s version to the MK’s version is like the old Fantasyland at Disneyland compared to the new Fantasyland of 1984.
There are lots of pictures. Let’s take a look. Please know that plenty of spoilers are ahead!
What’s missing here of course is the ride portion. But it is completely similar to the revised version in DCA that I happened to see last week. You can search for that elsewhere. I will be curious as to whether the lines remain long for this attraction. It’s my belief that they will be, much more than DCA, partly because the MK has more guests, but also because there is a greater anticipation in attending this attraction.
What I simply wanted to focus in on is the amount of detail that has gone into place-making these attractions. It’s fantastic. And you really feel like you’ve entered a whole new part of the Magic Kingdom. In fact, the Magic Kingdom seems suddenly enormous. I’ll have more commentary later, but in the meantime, check out my Disney at Work Facebook Page where I’ll post more photos from the New Fantasyland.
