Disneyland Singapore Resort - Fantasyland Part 1 2005

Fantasyland Part 1 - 

From London Heights we enter Fantasyland. This Fantasyland is split into three different areas those being The Enchanted Village, The Enchanted Woods, and Storybookland. In this post I will be covering The Enchanted Village, Heart Castle, and Storybookland. So without further ado the land - 

As guests approach the end of London Heights they are met with a magnificent castle. This is of course Heart Castle home to The Queen and King of Hearts from Wonderland. Guests can walk straight through the castle, and pass by The Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall. The Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall is a copy of the quick service at Tokyo Disneyland, and shares the same delicious menu. In the halls of Heart Castle occasionally The Queen of Hearts will be found wandering towards the Village to interact with the common folk. Moving out of the castle guests are met with the joyous Mad Tea Party spinning about, and the occasional Meet and Greet appearance of The Queen of Hearts and The White Rabbit.

To the left is Gepetto's Workshop and Pinocchio's Daring Journey. While to the right is Alice in Wonderland and the Village Theater. Gepetto's Workshop sells merchandise made of wood rather it be clocks, puppets, toys, or even music boxes. Up ahead is the Village Square where from time to time Pinocchio can be met. There is also a small store with a bean stalk going through the chimney of the cottage. This store is Sir Mickey's where guests can buy merchandise relating to all their Fantasyland Friends.

Pinocchio's Daring Journey -

The queue starts outside. Through a series of switchback guests eventually enter a workshop. As guests make their way through the workshop they are greeted by plenty of working music boxes, Cuckoo Clocks that go off every 30 minutes, and even various marionettes and toys.

Ride Experience -
As the riders leave the workshop they are greeted by Pinocchio and two marionettes performing I've Got No Strings. Pieces of gold are seen covering the stage. The riders then enter the back of Stromboli's Wagon. Here Stromboli is seen with an ax threatening Pinocchio that when he got too old he chop him up into wood. He then addresses the riders by asking them were they where going? A huge cage seems to capture the riders as the blue fairy uses her magic to help riders escape.


Guests are then met by Jiminy Cricket in the streets. He informs the guests that Pinocchio has gone missing, and Geppetto went looking for him. He then says we have to find him. Riders are taken to Pleasure Island. Guests pass by a ferris wheel loaded with kids, then a carousel with kids riding, nest there's tall figures asking riders, and kids of Pleasure Island if they want a cigar, then there's Gideon and Foulfellow nest to a popcorn stand that smells like actual popcorn, finally guests go under an eight ball. Guests pass by Lampwick who has just turned into a jackass as Pinocchio laughs at him. Guests exit the room as they encounter the Coachmen with an open crate telling the guests "Leaving So Soon?" as he tries to capture guests. As guests finally leave Pleasure Island they pass by crates with young boys turned donkeys crying out for their mamas, or let them go.

As the guests leave they encounter Jiminy Cricket who tells them to look out for Monstro. Strobe Lights go off as Monstro pops up swallowing guests whole. Now in a dark tunnel which seems to be the inside of Monstro guests hear Pinocchio, and Gepetto who decided to start a fire to escape Monstro when he sneezes by use of the smoke. Guests pass by Gepetto and Pinocchio who have started a fire. Guests will be able to smell the fire and smoke as Monstro begins to sneeze. With one sneeze he shoots out guests into the Village. After meandering around out side guests enter Gepetto's Workshop. The Blue Fairy appears by use of Pepper's Ghost Effect as she makes Pinocchio a real boy. Gepetto and Pinocchio celebrate as the ride ends. Guests will then unload out of their vehicles into Gepetto's Workshop.
