Disneyland to debut Fantasyland princess village

Disneyland Fantasy Faire renderingOn March 12, Southern California’s Disneyland will unveil Fantasy Faire, a new area of Fantasyland where guests can interact with princesses.

At the new Fantasy Faire, visitors will walk through a “Royal Hall,” where princesses will await them. Along the way, they will encounter scenes and characters from fairy tales, such as Geppetto’s cat Figaro from “Pinocchio” and “Clopin’s Music Box” from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”

There will be a village square highlighted by Tangled Tower, a sculpture inspired by the story of Rapunzel. It will be lit with twinkling lights at night.

A highlight of the Fantasy Faire experience will be the Royal Theatre, where two shows will take place: the tales of Rapunzel (“Tangled”) and Belle (“Beauty and the Beast”), presented by a pair of vaudeville-style storytellers.

Fairytale Treasures will be a store inside Fantasy Faire where princess dresses, accessories and gifts will be sold.

Maurice’s Treats, based on Belle’s inventor father, will be a food cart serving bread twists — cheddar cheese garlic and strawberry almond cream flavors — along with a signature beverage, the Boysen Apple Freeze.

Also coming to Fantasyland in time for summer will be a new live show, “Mickey and the Magical Map,” to be presented in the Fantasyland Theatre.
