A new stage show is in development for the Fantasyland Theater at Disneyland park. Currently home to the Princess Fantasy Faire, Disney announced Thursday that a new show is in development which will bring a new live entertainment spectacular back to Fantasyland. The Princess’ moved into the Fantasyland Theater in 2006, creating the Princess Fantasy Faire, a very popular meet and greet and merchandise location where guests are able to meet their favorite princess and purchase apparel. The last stage show the Fantasyland Theater hosted was “Snow White: An Enchanting Musical” which ended in September of 2006. The stage area still has most of the set pieces still in place.
Disney also announced the development of the new Princess Fantasy Faire at the 2011 D23 Expo which is currently under construction where the Carnation Plaza Gardens once stood.
The current Princess Fantasy Faire, at the Fantasyland Theater is set to close on August 12, 2012. Disney will soon construct a $42,000 temporary home for the princess meet and greet along the elevated section of the “it’s a small world” mall, across from the Fantasyland Theater. The temporary princess meet and greet will open August 13, 2012.

Disney has yet to comment what the new live stage show will include, but did say that it will debut in the summer 2013.
