Happiest of all the Disney lands is the one inspired by animated Disney film classics--- Fantasyland. Here, in the courtyard of Cinderella Castle, are Mad Tea Party, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Snow White's Scary Adventure and Peter Pan's Flight. In the center of all is a gigantic jewel -- Cinderella's Golden Carrousel. Guests have the chance to prove their worthiness to Merlin in the daily "Sword in the Stone" show.
Most charming of the adventures is Walt Disney's salute to all the children on earth -- It's a Small World -- where hundreds of doll-like figures sing and dance in their native costumes. The lush lagoon setting of Ariel's Grotto offers a chance to meet "The Little Mermaid" character, Ariel, and then cool off in an interactive leap-frog fountain spouting between sea sponges. Guests also can meet popular classic characters at the Fantasyland Character Festival.
