Fantasyland is a place where your wildest imaginations can come true. One second, you could be flying over London in a pirate ship and next you’re on Casey Jr going down the track. Fantasyland is wonderfully tailored for kids, the friendly colours invite you to explore and most of the rides have height requirements accessible for young children.

Head to this land as soon as the park opens as it is very popular with the younger guests and can often get crowded. If you start in this land (particularly if you’re entitled to magic hours), you can get most of the rides done in the first hour or two and head to the quieter lands before it gets too busy.

Unleash your inner princess and visit the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to be transformed into your favourite princess (or prince). After your magical transformation head over to the Princess Pavilion to meet your favourite Royalty just beside It’s A Small World. The princesses change throughout the day and there is often a big line so be sure to get there early.

My favourite shop is housed just inside the castle walls, and it’s called La Boutique du Chateau. This shop celebrates Christmas 365 days a year and it’s a great place to stock up for the holiday season, if you’re lucky you can often find discounted souvenirs.

Feeling the summer heat? Grab a gelato at Fantasia Gelati and watch It’s A Small World come to life where every 15 minutes the ride’s facade comes to life.

Disney’s spectacular firework display is set off from Fantasyland each night meaning they close the land a few hours before the show starts, so make sure you don’t leave this land till the end of the day.

Make your way to Main Street USA to get prime viewing in front of the castle. The firework display often includes well-choreographed music and firework displays, as well as projected images.
