Fantasy Faire at Disneyland has been undergoing refurbishment since early August, although the Royal Theatre and Royal Hall remained open. It seems the refurbishment work is now complete.
Fantasy Faire Refurbishment
Scaffolding, construction walls, and themed scrim covered most of the Fantasy Faire façades, but these have all come down now.
Guests can now enjoy Fantasy Faire in all its glory. The medieval courtyard replaced Carnation Gardens Plaza during a 2013 update to Fantasyland.
It features the Royal Hall, where guests can meet Disney Princesses, and the Royal Theatre, where Disney characters re-tell their stories.
At the center of the courtyard is a statue of Rapunzel’s tower that lights up at night.
The façades look freshly painted and in good condition following the refurbishment. The walls of most of the buildings are shades of white and yellow with wooden planks.
The rooves are made of brightly colored shingles. A flower box is below one window.
Guests can again access Clopin’s Music Box next to the Royal Hall. Guests turn a crank on the front of the colorful music box to see Clopin dance and hear “Topsy Turvey” from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
The Royal Hall has bright blue shingles on the roof of the entrance.
Near the music box is this work of art advertising the Royal Hall and Royal Theatre. It depicts someone bowing in front of Princess Aurora in her pink dress, while three heralds play horns.
Characters sometimes appear on this small balcony and staircase.
At the back of Fantasy Faire, near the portal to the rest of Fantasyland, is the Fairy Tale Treasures gift shop.
This refurbishment was just the latest work in Fantasyland. The Red Rose Taverne façade was refurbished this summer. Peter Pan’s Flight, Alice in Wonderland, and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride all closed for refurbishment. On the other side of the land, a themed fence has replaced scrim around a lagoon.
