The December 6 grand opening celebration for New Fantasyland is fast approaching, and in honor of the debut of this wonderful expansion, we thought we’d share a look back at the full history of Fantasyland here at Magic Kingdom Park.
Our Fantasyland Timeline begins in 1965, when Walt Disney announced to the world that a Disney theme park would be built here in Central Florida. It then continues through construction, the opening day of Magic Kingdom Park, and the many changes the land has undergone over the park’s 41-year history.
It also features never-before-released photos from the beginning of Fantasyland and Magic Kingdom Park, as well as Walt Disney Imagineering videos from the New Fantasyland expansion. And be sure to keep checking back as we update the site.
