Meet Rapunzel at Princess Fairytale Hall in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park

At Princess Fairytale Hall, you can choose to meet either Cinderella and a visiting princess, or Rapunzel and a visiting princess. (The easiest way to tell which princesses will appear at the hall on the day of your vacation is to check the My Disney Experience app or pick up a Times Guide on the way into the park.) Check Jennifer’s original story for more details.

And if you missed it, we also talked Princess Fairytale Hall during our exclusive Disney Parks Blog live chat. You can still read what was discussed with Imagineers Jason Grandt and Dave Minichiello during the chat.
