Sneak Peek of Beauty and the Beast at Fantasy Faire at Disneyland {#FantasyFaire @Disneyland}

Fantasy Faire at Disneyland

Yesterday was a fun filled media preview of the new Fantasy Faire at Disneyland!  I shared some of the fun with you on our Disney Mentor Moms Facebook page, but also wanted to share a sneak peek of one of the shows at the Royal Theater.

The Fantasy Faire Village is so charming; I cannot wait to take Ava back so she can meet the Disney Princesses after it opens on March 12th to the public. Guests will be able to experience two shows at the Royal Theatre in Fantasy Faire…

one show features Rapunzel in “Tangled” and the other features Belle in “Beauty and the Beast”.

Before you press play on this sneak peek video, go get your princesses so they can watch Belle in the “Beauty in the Beast” at Fantasy Faire at Disneyland with you!

One thing I was pleasantly surprised to see at Fantasy Faire is that the shows are designed to entertain both “princes” AND “princesses”. The shows were so funny, had age appropriate humor in them, and boys will truly enjoy Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones as they tell the stories and act along.

And because they act and tell the story, these men inspire creativity in your little ones as they watch the shows.  I see a lot of dress up bins in homes finding even more uses after watching these shows at The Royal Theatre in Fantasy Faire.

Isn’t Belle beautiful and aren’t Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones amazing entertainers?

Fantasy Faire Debuts at Disneyland Park March 12th!

Fantasy-faire 2Disneyland Park is a magical place for all of us, but for those of us with little pricesses, an encounter with a Disney Princess and her story is…

well, beyond magic.  

Our little Ava’s first Disney Princess love was Tinkerbell.  Still, over five years later, she listens to her Tinkerbell music box before bed.  To bring the magic alive even more, we turn off the lights in her room, turn on the music box light and show Tink’s shadow on the ceiling.

Little (and big) girls who visit Disneyland beginning March 12, 2013 will find a new Disney Princess encounter awaiting them at the new Fantasy Faire, a storybook world that extends Fantasyland and brings its timeless tales to life in fun and surprising ways.

For those who treasure magical fairy tales, Fantasy Faire creates an enchanting, immersive environment for guests.  They will fall in love with the old world charm of Fantasy Faire, which is located on the west side of the “Hub” or Central Plaza, expanding Fantasyland beyond its current boundaries and into a new location near the forecourt of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Next week on March 5th, I am thrilled to bring you a sneak peek into this new enchanting Fantasy Faire.  I have the chance to walk the beautiful pathway leading into the corridors of the Royal Hall and meet the Princesses before Fantasy Faire opens to the public.  Be sure you follow the fun on our Disney Mentor Moms Facebook page so you can see all of these photos next week.

Here are some of the areas I am hoping I get to see next week at this sneak peek…

  • I am GIDDY to see a “Tangled” inspired area that brings Rapunzel’s hair aglow with twinkling lights after dark!
  • What Princess experience would be complete without seeing “Fairytale Treasures”, a shop inside Fantasy Faire, that offers Princess dresses, accessories and gifts?
  • And I hope to grab a Boysen Apple Freeze from Maurice’s Treats, a special food cart that Belle’s father made for everyone.

I also hear guests can be treated to two different shows as part of the Fantasy Faire experience in the Royal Theatre.  The tales of Rapunzel (“Tangled”) and Belle (“Beauty and the Beast”) will be presented by Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones, a pair of vaudeville-style Renaissance storytellers. The princess heroine, Rapunzel or Belle, will join in the fun and remain with the audience to greet guests following the conclusion of the story.

The addition of Fantasy Faire will be one of the highlights of the guest experience for Spring-Summer 2013 at the Disneyland Resort.  Head on over and like us on Disney Mentor Moms so you can keep up with the private photos next week Tuesday!  

Do you have any Disney Princesses that will enjoy Fantasy Faire?
