Disneyland anticipated the popularity of the Disney Princesses

Disneyland anticipated the popularity of the Disney Princesses.

That’s why they turned their Fantasyland Theater into the Princess Fair. You can spend half the day there with coloring activities, making crowns, waiting in line to get to the Princess Garden (where three Disney Princesses are ready to give your child personal attention), a story time where a princess reads a story (she sits on the throne down in the castle area), and a show where they teach your children how to have royal manners, single dance, and then do a may-pole dance. Three princesses are in that performance.

So if you wanted to personally visit all the princesses, you could literally stay there the whole day. They’ll have Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Mulan, (and maybe Pocahontas?).

Plus they make good business out of it too, with an entire wing dedicated to merchandise, princess garb, swords, shields, and getting your daughter made up, haired up, and dressed up like a princess (all of this stuff costs). Plus there’s food and bathrooms.

They should expand this concept into an entire park. The big thing missing here is that it’s no good for boys. They tried to include boys by putting men in the show, giving directions specifically just to the boy (to bow and stuff), and selling swords/shields, but they really failed in this area. None of the princes are there, and if they wanted to really attract boys, they would concentrate more on the “Disney heroes” as well as the princesses.

Side note: they made Tom Sawyer’s Island into Pirate’s Lair (home of Jack Sparrow) and do a Jedi training (with Darth Vader and Darth Maul). So that’s where most of the boys are at. =^)
