ORANDO, Fla. -- Walt Disney World officials say Snow White's Scary Adventures at the Magic Kingdom will close for good on May 31, 2012.
Officials announced Thursday that the attraction, which has been at the park since its 1971 opening, will be replaced by the previously announced Princess Fairytale Hall, where guests will be able to meet Disney Princesses.
The Orlando Sentinel ( http://thesent.nl/yCXRhy) reports that the closing comes as a result of the park's expansion of Fantasyland. Disney says the first segment of the Fantasyland expansion - a portion of Storybook Circus - will open to guests in late March. The new attractions will include one carousel of Dumbo the Flying Elephant, a re-themed Barnstormer rollercoaster starring the Great Goofini and the Fantasyland Station of the Walt Disney World Railroad.
