The original version of the attraction opened inside the former World Chorus building in October 2011.
The inside is practically unrecognizable from it's previous usage. Stone walls, ornate carved columns and cornicing, eight beautiful backlit stained glass windows and eight crystal artifacts representing each princess line the queue. The lighting is subtle yet certainly high-tech: the torches on the walls dance in a realistic flicker, the artifacts are lit by fiber optics and change color. Particularly stunning is the flower for Rapunzel, who rightly won the eighth spot over Mulan, which bursts into golden light from within just as in the film. A long wait it may have, but at least guests are now warm, inside and surrounded by high-quality Disney design work.
One Disney Princess is meetable every day at the attraction from the selection of Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Princess Aurora, Jasmine, Ariel, and Rupunzel, and it is always a random chance on who a guest will meet.
Normally, three Princesses are meetable a day, ranging from Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Princess Aurora, Jasmine, Ariel, Tiana, and Elena. The selection will always be randomised.
Magic Kingdom version
The Magic Kingdom version is known as Princess Fairytale Hall, and opened in September 2013, in the location that was previously occupied by Snow White's Scary Adventures. Guests enter through a tournament tent structure and walk past elaborate cut stone walls and stained glass windows featuring scenes and characters from favorite Disney Princess films. The guests then enter into the Royal Gallery, where portraits of the Disney Princesses align the walls, as you wait to be greeted by a Princess.
According to the Hall’s storyline, the hall is a gift from the King to Cinderella and acts as a place where she and other princesses can greet subjects.
Cinderella has always been part of the attraction since it opened. Rapunzel was formerly a permanent princess, but she currently appears randomly.
