Anna and Elsa from Frozen

Disney FastPass+ will be available for this character greeting experience. Elsa and Anna will appear together each day until the early evening, after which other visiting Disney Princesses will be available to greet guests. Cinderella and Rapunzel will continue making appearances at Princess Fairytale Hall.



INTRODUCTION

Princess Fairytale Hall is part of Walt Disney World's ongoing Fantasyland Expansion. This new character greeting spot features several Disney Princesses, such as Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) and Jasmine -- perhaps others. It is located on the site of the former Snow White's Scary Adventures attraction opposite the Carrousel in an area of New Fantasyland called the Castle Courtyard.

Princess Fairytale Hall officially opened on September 18, 2013.

ATTRACTION

As you approach Princess Fairytale Hall, you will see that you can choose from two queues. One leads to Rapunzel and a "visiting princess" and the other takes guests to Cinderella and her royal friend. The queues begin outdoors in a shaded area that sets the scene with heavily bricked walls and crown-shaped light fixtures that cast a slightly purple glow. Cinderella Castle and Prince Charming Regal Carrousel are visible to those waiting in line outside.

Princess Fairytale Hall

Before entering the hall, you walk through the gallery past beautiful stained glass windows. Each has a centered image that depicts a character from the Disney film story of Cinderella.

Once inside, you wind through several turns of the line. These, too, are decorated in true royal fashion with ornate iron gates, fancy chandeliers, colorful banners and beautiful arches. Most importantly for the royal realm of Central Florida -- there is air conditioning! After the last turn, you step onto a rich carpet and enter the hall, where you see portraits of Princesses Aurora, Jasmine, Tiana, Mulan, Snow White and Rapunzel.

Cinderella's Glass SlipperWhen you finally reach the front of the queue, be sure to step forward so you can take a look at Cinderella's famous glass slipper, which is illuminated in a special case.

Finally, it is time to meet the Disney princesses! A cast member will direct your party into the receiving room associated with your queue. The rooms are organized as exact opposites, with guests standing in a short line before meeting the "visiting" princess and then the "featured" princess. Rapunzel's meet-and-greet (on the left) is decorated in warm tones, while Cinderella's (on the right) is decorated in traditional blues. Both showcase replicas of props from the movies -- from storybooks for each princess to the king's bookends in Cinderella's room.

TOURING TIPS

Find out who the "visiting princesses" are each day, by checking the sign at the entrance to Princess Fairytale Hall. You also can look at the "characters" section of the My Disney Experience app or the printed daily Times Guide for the Magic Kingdom.

The queue for Rapunzel may be longer than the one for Cinderella, given that it will be the only place on Disney property to meet Rapunzel.

FastPass will be available for Princess Fairytale Hall. There will be two FastPass options -- one for Rapunzel and a her princess friend and one for Cinderella and her visiting princess -- available at the distribution area near Peter Pan's Flight.
