For those of you who love Disney World as much as I do, there are some exciting changes in store in the Magic Kingdom. The Mouse is, indeed, expanding the original hub of the park. New Fantasyland introduces us to not one, but TWO new castles. Eric’s Castle from “The Little Mermaid,” one of my faves, and the Beast’s Castle from, yes, “Beauty & the Beast” will be ready for visitors starting December 6! Just a little more than two months away, for those of us who weren’t counting! 

Inside the Beast’s Castle, diners will be able to enjoy their choice of three new dining rooms inside the Magic Kingdom’s latest restaurant, Be Our Guest. Just looking at the dessert menu makes me drool with excitement. The restaurant promises to offer French cuisine for lunch and dinner. I’m hoping they will also offer Character Dining. 

Future guests can hop on the new Little Mermaid-themed musical ride or get autographs from the Little Mermaid in Ariel’s Grotto. I will so be there the next time we hit the park!
