ANAHEIM, Calif. – Since opening day at Disneyland in 1955, Disney Princesses have appeared in the park, parades, shows and personal encounters in and near Fantasyland. Through the years, park guests have expressed their affection and admiration for these special Disney characters. Today, as part of the recent transformation of the Disneyland Resort, guests are enjoying a special, new place to visit the Princesses and experience even more stories – at Fantasy Faire.
Visitors to Disneyland Park – young girls, in particular – love the Princesses. Though each Princess has her own distinctive personality and characteristics – adventurous, determined, thoughtful and kind – they are all beautiful, inside and out, as well as friendly and charming to everyone they meet.
An encounter with a Princess at Disneyland can be a dream come true for a child or parent, and almost every visitor has seen a little girl wearing a Princess costume or carrying a Princess doll for her day in Disneyland. Some children even get their own Princess makeovers in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Fantasyland.
