DGTG News Flash: Travel Under the Sea with this Sneak Peek into the Fantasyland Expansion

With every passing day, we are inching closer to the opening of the "new and improved" Fantasyland at Disney's Magic Kingdom Theme Park!  Yesterday afternoon, the Disney Parks Blog posted a teaser video which gives us a sneak peek into one of the coming highly anticipated new attractions, " 'Under the Sea' - Journey of the Little Mermaid"!  This video will be featured as part of the One Man's Dream exhibit at Disney's Hollywood Studios later this week!

I was lucky enough to experience California Adventure's new attraction Ariel's Undersea Adventure during its opening weekend, and I fell in love!  I can't wait to see the differences ans similarities between these two attractions upon completion of this Walt Disney World counterpart.  Click here to go under the sea with me as hop aboard Ariel's Undersea Adventure.

Please enjoy this video via Disney Parks Blog and stay tuned to Disney Go To Girl for the latest in Fantasyland Expansion updates and news.

In the video, Imagineer Chris Beatty gives us a sneak peek at the making of Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid through some never-before-seen sketches, artist renderings, attraction maps and more, and shares some details on Prince Eric’s castle and the attraction’s creative queue. Imagineer Eric Miller also takes us onsite to see the current state of the attraction’s progress.

Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid is one of many attractions planned as a part of the Fantasyland expansion currently taking place at Magic Kingdom Park. The new Fantasyland is set to open in phases beginning in late 2012.
