Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are taking a tour of the lands at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park.
This post will explore the hidden wonder and fantasy that can be found in Fantasyland. Fantasyland has recently wrapped up its expansion with Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Under the Sea, and Enchanted Tales with Belle joining the Fantasyland lineup. This expansion took over what was Mickey’s Toontown Fair.
Signs are everywhere at Walt Disney World. This week’s theme of Wordless Wednesday hosted by Focused on the Magic is Signs. I’m sharing some of my signs. The long sign is a sign that everyone staying at The Contemporary or Bay Lake Tower goes past on their walk to Magic Kingdom. Above our some of my families favorite attractions: Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid, It’s A Small World, Dumbo the Flying Elephant.
I’m going to tackle my first attraction review today with one of Disney’s newer rides: Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid

My family and I had the ability to ride this during the soft open period in November 2012. We went during a period that was only open to annual passholders. Even still, the ride had a 20 minute wait when we got into the queue. This gave us plenty of time to take pictures of the queue and inside the ride.
