With only a few hours left in the day to spend at the parks, I knew I had to see the new Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom before I left WDW, even if that meant only looking at it. The rides had ridiculously long waits, it was super crowded and it was getting extremely hot outside, so we went and saw but were unable to partake. Sad.
So we saw Under the Sea with The Little Mermaid...
and Eric's Castle.
For some reason, the bumbling LeFou was always a memorable character for me, so I love how he is portrayed in this statue in front of Gaston's Tavern.
We took a quick peek into the Tavern. Beauty and the Beast remains one of my favorite Disney films.
We also saw the Beast's castle in the distance.
We did get to visit one attraction in the old part of Fantasyland - Mickey's PhilharMagic, where Donald makes a mess as usual.
We took some more castle photos for good measure.
Then made our way back to Wilderness Lodge via boat.

We ate an early dinner at Wilderness Lodge's Whispering Canyon Cafe. I was trying to keep on the light side since we were eating so early and going to bed so early, so I just had the potato leek soup and arugula salad with a pomegranate lemonade.
We washed up and went to bed around 8 pm for a 3:30 am wake up time the next morning!
