* ''Series/TheMagicians2016'': There is an in-universe series of books about the magical land of Fillory, which is basically [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] without the villains. Quentin Coldwater, the main character, is ecstatic when he finds out Fillory is real. However, it turns out that while there are many wonderful things about Fillory, in the end it has many dark parts, like any other world. Sexism is rampant, political chaos is the order of the day, the gods are hedonistic idiots (albeit well-meaning ones), and DisproportionateRetribution combined with MightMakesRight is the most common law. Sometimes it seems like the only reason people fall in love with Fillory is because the atmosphere is 0.2% opium. As Quentin notes, that's kind of a cheating way to get you to like a place.

The "another world" part of TrappedInAnotherWorld. It may [[CoolGate be right]] [[DownTheRabbitHole down a rabbit hole]], [[PortalPool at the bottom of a pool]], over a mysterious mountain range, or [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia through a wardrobe]]. What is certain is that people from other worlds will be visiting it. Usually the MagicalLand is AnotherDimension or [[TimeTravel time period]] of some sort, but it can also be a mysterious "unexplored territory", uncharted island, or LostWorld, which is more common the farther you go back. ([[ScienceMarchesOn Geography marches on.]])

LandOfFaerie is a sub trope of MagicalLand.

Contrast this with ConstructedWorld which does not have visitors or a gateway from our world.

The "another world" part of TrappedInAnotherWorld. It may [[CoolGate be right]] [[DownTheRabbitHole down a rabbit hole]], [[PortalPool at the bottom of a pool]], over [[CoolGate through a mysterious mountain range, gate]], or [[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia through inside a wardrobe]]. What is certain is that people from other worlds will be visiting it. Usually the MagicalLand is AnotherDimension in AnotherDimension; but it can also be [[HereThereBeDragons unexplored territory]], an IslandOfMystery, or a LostWorld. The exact type depends on the age of the work, as [[ScienceMarchesOn geography marches on]], the trope has shifted from [[ForgottenTrope lost continents]] to entire [[AnotherDimension other dimensions]] (or in the case of ScienceFiction, [[AllPlanetsAreEarthlike far off planets]] or [[TimeTravel time period]] of some sort, but it can also be a mysterious "unexplored territory", uncharted island, or LostWorld, which is more common the farther you go back.

Vulnerable to {{Planetville}}-ism. The world's version of natural laws are usually the MagicalUnderpinningsOfReality.

The KingInTheMountain may be sleeping here. (Not necessarily under a mountain.) The rare democracy that falls under this trope will be CrystalSpiresAndTogas.

If it's ''really'' magical, it may be {{Wackyland}}. See also TrappedInAnotherWorld.
