The Magic Kingdom just got more magical. The newest section, Fantasyland, opened today and it's the largest expansion since the park opened in 1971. The Enchanted Forest is made up of attractions inspired by The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast (watch a send-up on House Hunters as Belle and the Beast pick their new home below). This is also where you'll find the Be Our Guest restaurant, the first at the Magic Kingdom to serve alcohol.

Fantasyland is a work in progress and won't be completed for a couple years. Coming up next year will be a Princess Fairytale Hall for meet-and-greets with the princesses, followed by a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in 2014.
