As we reported last month, work has begun on the Fantasyland expansion taking place at Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Visitors to Disney will definitely want to take note of these important updates, courtesy of the Disney Parks Blog.
Beginning April 12, Ariel’s Grotto (pictured above), Scuttle’s Landing snack location and Pooh’s Playful Spot will be closing. You’ll still be able to find several of your favorite Disney Characters in some other locations and continue to experience other favorite Fantasyland attractions –- in their normal locations. Ariel will continue to be seen in the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade and SpectroMagic Parade at Magic Kingdom Park as well as at the Voyage of The Little Mermaid attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Ariel will have a new grotto greeting location and ride-through attraction called Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid as part of the Fantasyland expansion scheduled for 2013.
That’s all for now, but be sure to check the Walt Disney Weekly Scoop often for updates.
