Wander through the crooked trees as you explore the world of your favorite fairy tales while the lights above dance to choreographed music and curious creatures hide around every corner at the Enchanted Forest. Take a stroll through whimsical scenes from your favorite fairy tales, like the Frog Princess, the Sword and the Stone and the Princess and the Pea at Storybook Lane.
