Recently, I got a chance to check out the new Fantasy Faire princess greeting area opening soon at Disneyland Park. Fantasy Faire was build right next to Sleeping Beauty Castle in the area formerly home to the Carnation Plaza Gardens. I shared my opinions of the area on a recent segment of the DIS Unplugged: Disneyland Edition, but take a look at the pictures below and let us know what you think.
In the center of Fantasy Faire is a statue reminiscent of Rapunzel’s tower, with her flowing locks twisting around it.
To the right of the main entrance to Fantasy Faire is the entrance to the Royal Hall, where young guests will be able to meet three Disney Princesses.
In a great change from the former Princess Fantasy Faire, Disneyland will let you know in advance which Disney Princesses you will meet.
Each Disney Princess has her own semi-private area in which to greet her subjects.
As you exit the Royal Hall, you’ll find yourself near Fairy Tale Treasures, a small shop filled with princess costumes and accessories.
Also in Fantasy Faire is the Royal Theatre, where several times a day the stories of Belle and Rapunzel are told by a troop of traveling thespians, along with live music and help from the Princess herself.
Following the show, Belle or Rapunzel and Flynn will greet young guests.
Maurice’s Treats serves snacks for you to enjoy during the show. Strawberry, chocolate or garlic-cheddar twists are featured, along with a boysen-apple freeze.
Fantasy Faire is filled with lots of detail, including a nod to the former Carnation Plaza Gardens.
Fantasy Faire officially opens March 12, 2013.
