Fantasyland is an alternate dimension featured in the movie of the same name released in 2015.

Description

Fantasyland was once one of the many empty dimensions of our Multiverse. But in 1937, on the occasion of the release of the movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves", the greatest comical or dreaming minds of our world began to ponder about the difference between he happy trouble-less world of cartoons, comic books, fairy tales and fiction in general, and our sad, depressively realistic and magicless everyday life. So, using fiction tropes as their main fabric, they filled an alternate dimension with comical, magical and sweet concepts that were supposed to be the best of what Man ever created when it came to fictional utopias.

  • Princesses Rule: Fantasyland is a principality ruled by a princess.
  • Ride the Rainbow: Bifrost is the name of a flying ship made of pure rainbows bestowed onto the royal family by The Old Gods as an old vehicle that allows them to communicate with them directly. Has not worked in centuries, but when it starts working again with no explanation, it kicks off the plot.
  • Standard Fantasy Setting
  • Teleporters and Transporters: The magic label pin can transport people to Fantasyland, but only if they are holding or wearing it. If they put it down, they come back to the real world.

  • Tomorrowland: Tomorrow City
  • Toon Town: Toon City
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: The Princess of Fantasyland, who is somehow a combination of all the fairy tale princesses, who are normally supposed to be fairest of them all to begin with.
  • Composite Character: Several in-universe examples, such as the aforementioned Princess of Fantasyland, who is a combination of all fairy tales princesses; the several "tricky fox/coyote" characters who are all combined into Reynard the Trickster; all the Wicked Witches who are combined and lessened into the comically harmless Witch Hazel; Jack O'Lantern, who is a combination of his original, folklore self and Tim Burton's later reimagining; and so many more.
  • Cosmic Retcon: The magic that sustains Fantasyland allows the character's stories to be retconned as pleased in order to include new concepts invented since the Land's creation.
  • Clock Roaches: The same magic also sends the Big Bad Wolf to any intruder who tries to mess up with the characters' stories and make the retcon himself.
  • A God Am I: Some mythological divinities have been used too in Fantasyland, such as Neptune, Zeus, Râ… All of them believe themselves to be the all-mighty gods they are supposedly in their original myths. Actually, their power is somewhat limited, but the Authors (a.k.a. the persons from Earth who created Fantasyland and are the true men in charge) let them believe they are almighty because they feel better that way. Collectively referred to as The Old Gods. It is later implied that their pantheons and their cosmological origin stories are able to coexist through the Cosmic Retcon.
  • All Myths Are True: They weren't originally, but some Applied Phlebotinumallowed the Authors to make them true.

Backtage

On how all this came to be: Fantasyland is loosely based off a dream a Troper once had. It's like Tomorrowland from the movie of the same name, only it's based off of fantasy.

Tropes used by this page itself:

  • X Meets Y: Tomorrowland metes The Disneyland theme park "Fantasyland".
  • Just for Pun: The main reason for the existence of the "constructed with tropes as fabric" is obviously a pun on a real trope's name, Tropes Are Tool, taken literally.
