Behind the Walls of Disneyland’s Fantasy Faire

| February 8, 2013 | Reply

Very soon your favorite Disney Princesses will be getting a new home at DisneylandFantasy Faire opens in the former location of the Carnation Plaza Gardens on March 12th.  Recently, The DIS was invited to take a peek behind the construction walls and below are some pictures from that tour.  We also discussed the new area on the recent Fantasy Faire Preview segment of the DIS Unplugged: Disneyland Edition podcast.


If you want to see what the new area is going to look like, take a look at the scale model in the Blue Sky Cellar at Disney California Adventure.


The stage that has been used for many years is still there as part of Fantasy Faire, but has been rethemed as the Royal Theatre.  Several times a day, vaudeville-style performers will tell the stories of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Tangled” with help from Belle and Rapunzel.  Following the performance, the Princesses will pose for pictures and sign autographs.


On the other side of Fantasy Faire, young guests can line up to meet three other Disney Princesses inside Royal Hall.


Much of the area is themed to match Sleeping Beauty Castle and Fantasyland.


The interior of Royal Hall, however, is decorated with dark woods and rich carpeting.


At the center of Fantasy Faire, will be a statue reminiscent of Rapunzel’s tower, complete with her golden hair.


There are several little surprises built into the architecture of Fantasy Faire (some of which were “spoiled” on the Podcast), but suffice it to say, there will be plenty of Disney magic happening here.

Stay tuned to The DIS blog and the DIS Unplugged: Disneyland Edition podcast for full coverage with Fantasy Faire opens to the public.
