    Fantasyland

    From reading posts on this site it appears that many people are unhappy with the theming of fantasyland. So I want to know what you would do to change Fantasyland. (try to be very specific)

    Actually, Disneyland's FL is based on DLP's design, so its best to say to theme them to the style of DLP's Barbarian style. I also agree, thats the only way a fantasyland looks lika FL, the Carnival theme is too primitive and isn't as detailed.

    Interesting, as Disneyland's "New Fantasyland" opened in 1983, almost ten years before Euro Disneyland opened in 1992.

    Oh, sorry. My bad, it's just me being ignorant, I could've sworn DLP's came first.

    It's cool... Disneyland CA's Fantasyland came first, but it was greatly enhanced for DLP, so that's probably what Tokyo would opt for. They spare no expense these days.

    I wouldn't say enhanced, as Disneyland's Fantasyland still looks the best in my opinion, especially with the Matterhorn in the background.

    Re: Fantasyland

    Disneyland may have the Matterhorn (not to mention more attractions), but it does not compare to the beauty of Paris' Fantasyland. The fantastic "DisneySea Test" italian street, the remarkable Storybook Land, the cobblestones, the italian ceramic roofs that replace the wood, the enormous, phenomonal castle with the life-size dragon... the list goes on and on. Disneyland's has more to do, no question, but Paris' KILLS in eye candy!

    Re: Fantasyland

    Disneyland Paris' Fantasyland actually seems to be more 'Fantasy'. Disneyland's, while still extremely beautiful (it brings to mind the Germany pavilion at Epcot), does not compare with or without said Swiss mountain.

    Re: Fantasyland

    Good points. I do love Disneyland Paris' Fantasyland for its detail and architecture, but Disneyland's Fantasyland just feels more charming to me for some reason. To be fair, I'll rank them equally since I cannot pick a better one.

    Well that's what it's all about. Personal opinions.

    Anyway, does anyone have good pictures of Tokyo's Fantasyland, seeing as that is what this thread is actually about. I've never seen detailed photos of it.

    I think it looks fantastic, myself. Highly themed (very impressed by the Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall) and beautiful to look at.

    I think it looks very pretty too and much better than Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland. I don't know why people call it ugly.

    Re: Fantasyland

    Areas could use improvements but overall its not the worst area of the park.And is far nicer than WDW,can't coment on Hong Kong,but Paris is my all time favourite Fantasyland,followed by Disneyland.I assume as the years go by OLC will making changes to the parks look,but only when it see's fit.Kind of like its currently doing with Tomorrowland.
