Walt Disney World is about to embark on a sweeping facelift for the Fantasyland section of the Magic Kingdom, in what the resort calls the biggest overhaul in the theme park's 38-year history. Plans revealed Saturday call for adding a lavish ride based on The Little Mermaid, expanding a popular Dumbo children's attraction, new interactive areas featuring some of Disney's best-known princesses, and more. The overhaul will be complete by 2013. A new Star Tours will open at Disney Hollywood Studios in 2011.
