And speaking of New Fantasyland, have you heard the news that Princess Fairytale Hall will officially open its doors on Wednesday, September 18? You can read the original blog post with all of the details here.
As we shared a few weeks ago, our Walt Disney Imagineers are busy putting the finishing touches on Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom Park. This exquisitely detailed Disney Princess character greeting location is the next to debut as a part of the New Fantasyland expansion – and we’re happy to share today that the Hall will officially open its doors on September 18.
Our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering just shared a new sneak peek video with us in honor of today’s announcement. In it, Imagineers Pam Rawlins and Jason Grandt explain just how detailed this new character greeting area will be. In addition to a castle-like entrance, high ceilings and elegant wood-paneled rooms, the space will feature beautiful princess portraits, themed wallpaper, glittering stained glass windows and accessories that have been inspired by props seen in films like “Cinderella” and “Tangled.”
As a reminder, Princess Fairytale Hall will offer two separate character greeting experiences, which means there are two queues to choose from. You can choose to meet either Cinderella or Rapunzel, each of whom will be joined by one fellow Disney princess.
The Walt Disney Imagineers, who are busy putting the finishing touches on Princess Fairytale Hall in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park, reached a milestone earlier today when they added the attraction’s marquee. Check out the photo below, shared with us by our friends in Walt Disney Imagineering.
The hall, which is set to open this fall, will welcome princess fans into a positively regal character greeting area. According to Imagineering, the attraction’s entrance features stone walls and stained glass windows. Once inside, guests will enter a huge gallery with a vaulted ceiling and portraits of Disney princesses. From here, guests will be able to meet either Cinderella or Rapunzel, each of whom will be joined by a fellow Disney princess.
Will this be a must-see for you when it opens this fall? Tell us in the “Comments” section below.

I’ve gotten wind that the last mystery puzzler was way too easy. So, how about this for a summer stumper? It’s a windmill found somewhere at Disney Parks and it’s ready to be identified. Have you seen it before? Remember where? Please put your answers in the comments and we’ll update the post with the answer later today.
