Interactive Timeline: Explore the History of Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park

posted on November 9th, 2012 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


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.
Interactive Timeline: Explore the History of Fantasyland 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.

Click the timeline image to discover where Fantasyland reigns.

Excited about the new Fantasyland. Hoping Disney will give some sort of discount or special offer for all the families in the east devastated by the hurricane that would love to take their families to disney right now.

The Timeline website doesn’t work. I think it needs some more testing in the lab or something.

The link is spazzing out. It keeps flashing from a screen with a blue background and the moon to a blank white screen…

Unfortunately the page isn’t working with either the most recent version of IE or Chrome browers.

The others are right, that page chokes on IE, Firefox loads the page in with no problems.
