Princess Fairytale Hall finally opened to all guests in New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom yesterday. The meet-and-greet is the second-to-last piece of the New Fantasyland expansion to open, leaving just the Seven Dwarfs’ Mine Train at this point. The meet and greet always hosts Cinderella and Rapunzel through two separate queues offering FastPass and FastPass+. Rapunzel and Cinderella will be joined daily by one visiting princess each, with the eventual plan being a pool consisting of Jasmine, Tiana, Snow White, Mulan, and Aurora for Disney to choose from. We take a look at Princess Fairytale Hall courtesy of WDWNT Reporter Joe Hogarty who provided pictures and video:

We also have a short video of Princess Fairytale Hall to share with you:
Overall, Princess Fairytale Hall is nothing groundbreaking. It is another highly immersive, well-themed meet-and-greet experience and a fitting place after several non-permanant attempts to have a Princess-only meet-and-greet area at the Magic Kingdom. The Princesses needed a home and the Magic Kingdom finally has one for them. While it did replace an opening day attraction, let us not forget that a brand new Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs attraction is opening in just a few months. It will be interesting to see how often Disney rotates the visiting princesses and how the wait times vary for Princess Fairytale Hall and we will be watching that over the coming weeks.
