Fantasyland Stops to Make During Your Disney Timeshare Vacation

Explore Beast’s Castle during your Disney Timeshare Vacation

When Disney World Orlando officially opened The New Fantasyland this past December 6, it marked an expansion that nearly doubled the size of Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom. Fantasyland, (one of the six themed areas within the park) is the land of fairy tales and classic Disney; it’s the place to find Cinderella or Pinocchio. It’s also home to two new castles. As Chris Beatty, senior creative director Walt Disney Imagineering, explained to USA Today, “In every storybook story there are multiple kingdoms, places you can travel to, woods to wander through and get lost and come upon a new story.Now you can journey beyond the walls of Cinderella castle and find yourself in the forest and then at Beast’s castle, or go to the seashore and visit Prince Eric’s castle. It’s these other stories, these other destinations, where we want to take our guests.”

In the New Fantasyland, you’ll find Ariel of “The Little Mermaid,” with a ride that moves you along in a clamshell, winding your way through Ariel’s story. There’s also a grotto where you can met Ariel, her prince, and other characters from the story. Here you find Prince Eric’s castle; if you don’t recognize it from the story, look for the castle with the monogrammed “E” on the flag flying from the turret.

The second new castle belongs to the Beast, as in “Beauty and the Beasty.” Like everything else in Belle’s Village, the castle has a French style. Beast’s castle includes the Be Out Guest restaurant, where you order by touch screen, choose your table and then waiters serve your meal. The restaurant includes a fresco ceiling, windows allowing you to view the continually falling snow, additional rooms simulating the forbidden west wing of the Beast’s castle (as seen in the movie), a ballroom filled with dancing Beast and Belle figurines, and other images to capture the imagination of all who love the story of Belle and the Beast.

Other updates that are part of the New Fantasyland include an expanded Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride, Storybook Circus where visitors can “take to the sky with The Great Goofini on spiraling stunt plane adventure high above the Storybook Circus grounds,” and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which will open next year.

The New Fantasyland is the largest expansion for the Magic Kingdom since the park first opened. It’s also more than enough reason to plan a vacation to DisneyWorld Orlando. With it’s fresh feel, the New Fantasyland brings both new energy and timeless charm to America’s most beloved theme park. Even the approach to standing in line (a given at most theme parks) has an updated feel with interactive games and subtle nuances to engage your interest while your await your turn at the rides and attractions.

A Disney Timeshare Could Be Your New Castle at Disney

But the castles at Disney World aren’t limited to the theme park. Ask any Disney Vacation Club member and they will tell you that their Disney timeshare is a perfect “castle” for family vacations, romantic getaways, reunions, or almost any type of holiday celebration. Like the castles in the Magic Kingdom, Disney timeshare “castles” are also increasing in number, meaning that there will soon be even more options for enjoying  Disney vacation ownership as a DVC member.

Understanding Vacation Ownership

Understanding Vacation Ownership

Vacation Ownership means better vacations
For millions of families Vacation Ownership means better vacations.

One way to look at vacation ownership, also called timeshare, is that it is a strategy for managing your vacation time and budget. The purpose of vacation ownership is, and always has been, to help couples and families vacation better. In fact, the name of the website provided by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) to help consumers know and enjoy more about timeshare vacations actually is Vacation Better. (

Better vacationing through timeshare vacation ownership doesn’t mean limiting yourself to week-long stays at the same resort, year after year. Many timeshare resorts offer owners the option to break up their time, enjoying long weekends or short-stay getaways instead of, or in addition to, the traditional one-week timeshare interval. And the options for timeshare exchange make it possible to bank your timeshare ownership for future use, exchange the date, the resort, and even the size timeshare villa or condo in which you will be vacationing.

Vacation ownership, for many busy families, makes the planning of vacations easier. Confirm your week’s usage each year and your vacation accommodations are set, bypassing the time you would have spent searching the online travel sites for a vacation deal. Because you know your resort and its many amenities, you’ll find packing and planning easy and you’ll also save on vacation wardrobes, luggage fees at the airport, or luggage space in your trunk, with a washer and dryer conveniently located in your timeshare unit.

Families who enjoy vacationing in a favorite resort may be less interested in timeshare exchange and drawn to vacation ownership because it allows them to actually own vacation property. Yet unlike the responsibilities of owning a private vacation home, with vacation ownership you never have to worry about the maintenance or security of your vacation spot. Vacation ownership provides you a resort getaway without the hassles and costs that come with sole ownership of a property.

Vacation Ownership and Your Vacation Budget

When you add up the costs of a lifetime of vacation accommodations, the number can be shocking. Now look at the cost of vacation ownership, especially if you buy your timeshare on the secondary market as a timeshare resale, where the prices and the savings are the greatest. Compare your annual maintenance fees with the escalating costs of hotel rooms and it quickly becomes clear that vacation ownership can be very budget friendly.

And don’t overlook the inherent vacation cost-cutting made possible by the convenience of a having a private kitchen and dining area in your timeshare. With vacation ownership, you can choose to eat in or dine out as it suits your schedule and your wallet, in fact, you can easily vacation in timeshare for a week and spend no more for meals than you would be spending on the cost of groceries at home.

The most important fact about timeshare ownership is simply this: do the math, get the facts, and check out the opportunities for yourself. Don’t be swayed by timeshare advertising or put off by journalists who have never owned, or even vacationed in timeshare, yet get caught up in the criticisms of it. Timeshare is not a good choice for some families, yet for many families, it’s ideal. For millions of very happy owners, vacation ownership makes it easy and affordable to plan and enjoy luxury vacations at resorts the whole family will love.
