Princess Fairytale Hall - A Look Inside

Meet Cinderella at Her New Home

Cinderella lives at "The Magic Kingdom." Thus, Princess Fairytale Hall is her home. Rapunzel has her own domain on the outskirts, so technically she lives there as well. Other princesses visit.

Princess Fairytale Hall used to be Snow White’s Scary Adventures. This is part of the New Fantasyland expansion of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

Princess Fairytale Hall is the new regal home of Cinderella and Rapunzel along with a rotating cast of two other characters amidst a lavishly decorated, castle-themed environment.

Princess Fairytale Hall opens September 18, 2013.

"Attendees of the Friday the 13th Disney Parks Blog meet-up were given a chance to get a first look at Princess Fairytale Hall, the latest addition to New Fantasyland in the Magic KIngdom at Walt Disney World including meet-and-greets with Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Aurora."

FastPass+ and traditional FastPass are both in use in Princess Fairytale Hall, along with a standby queue. Town Square Theater will be remodelled in the future for other character meet and greets in the future of the Magic Kingdom.
