"Fantasy Faire Experience" Announced for Disneyland

Even though Walt Disney World fans were left very disappointed from yesterday's "Disney Parks & Resorts" presentation at the D23 Expo, we can at least say that Disneyland California's fans were not left without any new announcement. Indeed, Disneyland Park will soon receive a completely new, small themed area in Fantasyland, where some shows related to many of the most famous Disney princesses will be presented throughout the day. Take a look, from the official Disney Parks Blog:

New Fantasy Faire Experience Coming to Disneyland Park

Today at the D23 Expo, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs and Disneyland Resort President George Kalogridis announced an exciting transformation poised to take place at Disneyland park.

The boundaries of Fantasyland are expanding with a brand new experience called Fantasy Faire. For this project, Carnations Plaza Gardens Stage is being reimagined into an enchanting village square that will immerse guests in the stories of their favorite princesses in exciting new ways.

Guests will travel through a village square surrounded by fairytale cottages and pavilions to the heart of the square – Tangled Tower, inspired by the film. The village square will come alive with activities and entertainment, including a Royal Ribbon Parade where guests can dance and interact with Belle or Rapunzel. Guests can visit the their favorite Disney royalty from such films as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Tangled” and the upcoming Disney•Pixar film, “Brave.”
‪The Fantasy Faire Stage will be a new entertainment venue where the stories of Disney’s fairy tale heroes and heroines will be brought to life, letting guests become part of the story as well.
‪And at night, the Fantasy Faire Stage will come alive with the classic music and dance offerings that Disneyland park guests have loved for years.
We’ll have more updates on the new Fantasy Faire as they are available here on the Disney Parks Blog.

It looks like a nice addition for the park. Of course, this was by no means one of the "major" new announcements that people were expecting. Even for Disneyland, it was said that they would have announced a refurbishment for Tomorrowland and a new Tron attraction, but none of those rumors were confirmed this time.

Of course, keep in mind that Disney can make announcements for new rides whenever they want, even in the middle of the winter (they announced the Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride in January). We just have to wait. Naturally, the D23 Expo was always considered a time where Disney would make at least a couple of major announcements, hence explained all our disappointment.
