An Afternoon at Magic Kingdom's New Fantasyland Area
Vickie and I enjoyed a warm Florida summer afternoon in the Magic Kingdom. We checked out the new attractions in Fantasyland. Goofy (my favorite Disney character) has his own ride: The Barnstormer.
At the bottom of the sign at the entrance to The Barnstormer (below Goofy's picture) are swirls that might form an image of Mickey. What do you think? Is this a legitimate Hidden Mickey?
Kids (and adults!) can get really wet at Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station!
I cooled off inside the air-conditioned tent, part of the entrance queue of Dumbo the Flying Elephant. This sign inside the circus tent area explains it pretty well:
Dumbo flies high above us near the top of the tent.
Kids can work off energy climbing up through the "Thrilling Tower of Flames," one of several play areas inside the circus tent. I heard several parents calling for their kids (sometimes in vain) when their pager notified them that it was time to ride Dumbo.
Guests around me seemed to appreciate this imaginative Disney approach to attraction queuing. Imagine the parents' smiles as they watched the kids play while waiting for their time to ride!
