A Look at Prince Eric's Castle In New Fantasyland

There's been a great deal of excitement and anticipation in the air over the new Fantasyland expansion for awhile. Every time I see a new picture posted I get even more excited and hopeful that maybe some of it will open up in time for our trip and we'll get to experience it.

Things are really taking shape now. When I saw the latest picture of Prince Eric's Castle it became more of a reality and less of a dream. This castle is breathtaking!

Thanks to InsidEARS Disneyland Community Manager Kelly for sharing this news article with us.
Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI) is adding two Disney castles to the park – Beast’s Castle, which houses Be Our Guest Restaurant, and the one pictured below, Prince Eric’s Castle, which tops off the Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid attraction.


Here’s the first complete look at Prince Eric’s castle!


Just like Beast’s Castle, Prince Eric’s Castle uses the forced perspective technique for which WDI is famous to make the structure appear much larger in size than it is in reality.
Forced perspective, which has been used since Walt Disney oversaw the construction of Disneyland park in the 1950s, is sort of an optical illusion that uses architectural scale to “trick” the eye into believing a building towers above you, when it’s really not as tall as you’d think.
What are you looking forward to most in the new Fantasyland expansion?

  1. I'm really looking forward to seeing these two castles finished. I like what they did with the Little Mermaid ride in Disneyland, but it's way cooler to have Prince Eric's castle being built over the ride. 

  2. I am too. This going to be awesome having so many castle in Fantasyland and my guys will very much appreciate a man castle!
