SeaWorld Orlando - Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin Opening Spring 2013!

Tickets to Seaworld Orlando have always been a guarantee of a thrilling and educational day out, and now the coolest attraction imaginable is coming to SeaWorld. Take a voyage to the bottom of the world, a place of ice more than 9,000ft thick - to Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin.

Set to open in Spring 2013, this amazing new attraction will surround you with all the sights, sounds and incredible encounters found in this faraway frozen place.

On this first-of-its-kind family ride you'll experience the mystery and wonder of life on the ice through the eyes of a penguin.

Walt Disney World Resort - New Fantasyland Now Open!

In the depths of the Magic Kingdom Park lies a legendary world-the New Fantasyland! A magical place where mermaids sing, beauties tell stories, beasts roar and elephants fly!

New Fantasyland is the largest expansion in the history of Magic Kingdom park. You can now enjoy even more enchanting and interactive experiences, as well as more Disney characters and stories in two new themed areas:
