HAPPY 30th ANNIVERSARY, NEW FANTASYLAND
On May 25, 1983, a new Fantasyland was revealed at Disneyland park, 30 years ago (the1955 one got a makeover). Since then, this fairytale village style fantasyland has remained almost the same. To celebrate its anniversary, Disney Parks Blog posted these pics (took in the exact same spot) to compare it.
First, here’s a vintage black and white photo. King Arthur Carrousel and the Mad Tea Party were moved from their original locations in 1983, while Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride and Sleeping Beauty Castle remain untouched.
Fantasyland, although different, remains as Walt described it on opening day- “a timeless land of enchantment”.
