I went last Monday and when the CM ask did anyone else want a part several adults raised their hands and were given the parts of picture frames. Then were able to have their pictures made with Belle at the end.

It could certainly just be that it does depend on the CM working that room.
This totally goes against what Walt wanted. He built Disneyland because he wanted a place for everyone to enjoy, not just kids. I hope it does not become the norm!

New Princess Fairytale Hall concept images...






http://wdwnewstoday.com/archives/10595

It seems like the arch background could be changeable? Roulette M&G, like previously speculated?

So it'll basically be Epcot Character Spot with princesses instead of the Fab 5?

Probably roulette style (since the background might be changeable?)... and two separate 'divisions' where you go to one side see 2/3 princesses then go to the other side and see the other 2/3.

Not true that you have to participate...my niece and daughter did not participate and when they all lined up to meet Belle that both got in line. They were introduced as guests...or some other generic title...

While not announced they were given permission...spread the word

This attraction is very cool but I do have two complaints.


1. When we did it the CMs seemed very indifferent and I think they were kind of killjoys...this attraction needs an MC besides the candlestick...

2. The lighting in the library made it very difficult to get any decent shot or video!

I'd also like to know what will be open in August, that's my next trip!
The Tim burton version is not THAT old...I agree a wonderland experience would be very cool

I think this has sort of evolved over time, and depends on the CMs involved, as does their cooperation with folks trying to get their own photos. Some have been allowed to move over to get their shot, others were told they had to take it from where they were.

And just an FYI on this. We did this attraction twice. One set of Photopass shots were fine. The other set was so dark and red I doubt they will be usable. Thankfully I was able to get my own that I am happy with.

I agree, it really depends on the CM working. The official rule is that only those who participate get pictures. I made sure we volunteered and got photos. No one else was allowed at the one we went to.

I can not see them telling a three year old to get out of line...I honestly can't! We went week one December...I can see the, stating a rule but I honestly can not see them enforce it! My niece is 13 and wanted the picture but was too cool to take a part. If the denied her I would have been furious.

True, but the original Disney version has about 55 years on it.

I think the Teacups ride is plenty for Alice in Wonderland. Most movies, even the most popular ones, don't get more than one attraction.
