This week, we announced that Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom Park will officially open its doors on September 18. The detailed Disney Princess character greeting location is the next to debut as a part of the New Fantasyland expansion. And in honor of the announcement, we shared a new sneak peek video.

Princess Fairytale Hall will offer two separate character greeting experiences, which means there will be 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. Check Jennifer’s original post for more details.
