Walt Disney World Resort has recently completed the largest expansion in Magic Kingdom history with a lot of new features. New parades that winds its way down Main Street USA., to elevating the guest experience with MyMagic+, guests have a platter of new attractions to rejoice this summer.

Some of the new attractions which the guests will find are; Seven Dwarfs Mine Train: Inspired by the Disney animated film 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,' the family-style coaster will feature first-of-its-kind ride vehicles mounted in cradle-like pivots that allow the vehicles to swing back and forth during the twists and turns of the ride. Adding to the fun, the journey will be accompanied by music from the film classic and riders will be greeted by animated figures of Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs and forest critters.

Festival of Fantasy Parade: The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade brings the stories of New Fantasyland to Main Street, U.S.A. through parade floats, vibrant costumes and an original soundtrack that features songs from favorite Disney films, plus a new parade theme song. The floats celebrate Disney Princesses; Peter Pan and Wendy soar above a pirate galleon; Rapunzel and Flynn Rider appear on a longship.

Princess Fairytale Hall: Also part of the Magic Kingdom expansion, guests get to live out their dream of meeting a real Disney princess. It is the new home to Anna and Elsa, who join Cinderella and Rapunzel each day until the early evening, after which other visiting Disney Princesses will be available to greet guests. Surrounded by purple and gold trimmings, stone walls and ornate chandeliers, guests can choose between two queues; one for Cinderella and Rapunzel, or one for the Frozen sisters and visiting princesses.

MyMagic+: MyMagic+ is a new way to experience the magic of a Walt Disney World vacation.

Guests can design the Disney World vacation they want customising everything from their at-home planning to their in-park experiences to capturing memories.

Festival of the Lion King: The interactive live musical Festival of the Lion King show relocates in June to an all-new theater in the Africa section of Disneys Animal Kingdom. Festival of the Lion King envelops the audience in the sights and sounds of a tribal-like celebration featuring the music of Disneys animated classic, The Lion King.

New Nighttime Experiences at Epcot: While enjoying the nightly fireworks, guests can taste decadent desserts from around the world paired with the international sparkling wines during the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party.

Disney Fit Challenge: Disney Sports teams up with I Am CrossFit for an inaugural event at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex that will test athletes speed, strength, endurance, balance and power.

During the three-day competitive fitness event from September 26-28, recreational, intermediate and elite competitors will face challenges such as muscle-ups, double-box jumps, kettle bell swings, push-ups, squats and broad jumps based on age and skill level.

Disney Springs: Downtown Disney in 2014 continues its multi-year transformation into Disney Springs, a shopping/dining/entertainment destination to be set amid open-air promenades, springs and waterfront. Anchored by a signature water tower and grand entry, Disney Springs will boast four interconnected outdoor neighborhoods and be home to everything from shopping boutiques to flagship stores to great new restaurants and entertainment venues.
