Coast to coast, Disney Theme Parks now feature even more FYDJUFNFOU 'SPN B SFWWFE VQ MBOE EFEJDBUFE UP UIF %JTOFZÅ1JYBS GJMN “Cars” to a princess paradise, there’s so much new to experience at the Disneyland® and Walt Disney World® Resorts! Disneyland Resort The Happiest Place on Earth Just Got Happier Walt Disney World Resort Extreme Makeover: Fantasyland® Edition The Happiest Place on Earth is now even happier thanks to the opening of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure® Park. Cars Land immerses you in the thrilling world of the Disney•Pixar blockbuster “Cars.” Stepping into the town of Radiator Springs, you will enjoy three family attractions showcasing characters and settings from the movie, plus “Cars”-themed dining and shopping locations such as Flo’s V8 Café, Ramone’s House of Body Art and Radiator Springs Curios. One of the largest and most elaborate attractions ever created for a Disney Park, Radiator Springs Racers is a twisting, turning, high-speed adventure through Ornament Valley and the town of Radiator Springs. It’s a pure adrenaline rush! More gentle attractions, Luigi’s Flying Tires and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, offer their own brand of excitement … not to mention squeals of delight! 1 You’ll get a taste of the Golden Age of Hollywood as soon as you enter Disney California Adventure Park. The Roaring Twenties are alive on Buena Vista Street, which features Red Car Trolleys inspired by the transportation system that once served Southern California, and the Carthay Circle Theatre, modeled after the site of the 1937 world premiere of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Carthay Circle Theatre also includes a lounge and the elegant Carthay Circle Restaurant, a premier dining location. 2 These enhancements complement previous additions to the Park, including the zany 4D fun of Toy Story Mania; the spectacular after-dark “World of Color” show; The Little Mermaid — Ariel’s Undersea Adventure attraction; Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta and Paradise Garden Grill restaurants, plus rethemed attractions — Mickey’s Fun Wheel, Silly Symphony Swings, and Goofy’s Sky School. 3 12 | The largest expansion in Magic Kingdom® Park history is underway, a project that will nearly double the size of Fantasyland! Some of the new elements are already open: • The brand new Storybook Circus area features two circling carousels of airborne pachyderms on Dumbo the Flying Elephant. 4 • The classic Barnstormer has a bright new look, featuring Goofy as The Great Goofini. It’s a twisting, turning roller coaster “flight” high above the circus fun. 5 But that’s just the beginning of what you’ll discover in New Fantasyland (most new experiences will be open by 2013): • Beast's Castle is home to Be Our Guest Restaurant, a unique dining experience in the elegant ballroom, gallery and mysterious “West Wing” of the castle. 6 • Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid allows you to travel with Ariel and her friends through their exciting adventures above and below the waves — all against a musical backdrop of songs from the classic film. 7 • Enchanted Tales with Belle begins in Maurice’s workshop, where a magical mirror is the doorway to a captivating new kind of storytelling experience. Head into the Beast’s library to meet Belle and Lumiere, and share in a lively, interactive re-telling of the “tale as old as time.” • In Princess Fairytale Hall, Aurora, Cinderella and other Disney princesses, such as Tiana and Rapunzel, will greet guests in their new home. • The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will take you on a rollicking, musical ride into the mine “where a million diamonds shine.” The coaster will feature a first-of-its kind train of ride vehicles that swing back and forth, responding to every twist and turn of the track. 8 1 3 6 8 N extra credit
