Princess Fairytale Hall: How to meet the Princesses with no confusion

Princess Fairytale Hall is the new location for 4 of Disney’s most popular Princesses. You’re guaranteed to meet either Cinderella in one queue line with a visiting Princess or Rapunzel in another queue line with a guest Princess. You’ll find that almost all the time it will be Cinderella with Aurora/Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel with Snow White.  “Legacy” or paper Fastpass (we’ll get there) and Fastpass+ are available to meet each Princesss group.

Location:  Former Snow White’s Scary Adventures building right behind the Castle on your right as you pass through the Castle

Best time to go:  Rope drop, fireworks or immediately after fireworks or use a type of Fastpass.

Should I use FASTPASS?  I recommend waiting in one standard queue to experience the large artwork and Cinderella’s slipper and use some type for Fastpass for the other.  I would go there at rope drop one day or during fireworks to experience the regular stand by queue.

Who has the longest wait?:  Ususally Rapunzel, but in the early morning everyone heads to Rapunzel, then switches queues to Cinderella.  (We used Legacy FP for Cinderella and found that to be a better solution.

How’s the lighting?  It’s really beautiful and regal inside the new meet and greet area.  It’s much better than the old flat backdrops, but the lighting is difficult on inexpensive cameras.  I recommend using a fill flash if you don’t get a good photo.  Don’t leave without inspecting your photo!  All these photos were taken with a pocket Sony RX 100, which is a high-end hand-held camera.

Disneyland’s Princess Fantasy Faire opening March 12

Disneyland’s Fantasy Faire was built upon an area known as the Carnation Plaza Gardens.  For years it featured evening swing dancing, but not a great deal more.  It was demolished to bring this grand, new meet and greet area for Disney Princesses.  It maintains the same gothic styling as Fantasyland behind the castle, but has a more open village feeling.  It will be located to the left of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

There are two main areas of Fantasy Faire:  Royal Hall and Royal Theater.   Royal Hall will be the primary meet and greet location for Disney Princesses which features a couple of nice interactive elements in “Clopin’s Music Box” and Gepetto’s cat Figaro napping upon a window sill.  “Clopin’s Music Box” is a mechanical wonder that displays the Feast of Fools scene from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

The Royal Theater is the primary location of Princess storytelling.  There will be two different shows presented featuring Belle and Rapunzel.  They story will be presented by Mr. Jones and Mr. Smythe who are Renaissance style storytellers who desire to bring these stories to life.  They will be joined by Belle and Rapunzel who will meet and greet at the conclusion of the story.

Fantasy Faire opens March 12, 2013

New Cinderella dress introduced today in New York City

image

One thing that has gone unnoticed by most of us today with the big announcement of 52 weeks of celebrations is that Disney provided the public with its first photo of Cinderella’s new dress.  Very soon, she will meet guests in the parks while wearing the dress in the above photo that was taken at today’s New York City press event.

Here’s a photo of her current dress.

image

I like her new look.  I think it’s a big improvement over the current dress and will look better in photos, especially when the princesses move to Fantasyland next year.  What do you think?

(A big thanks to my friends for pointing this out and connecting me with the photo.)
