The Disneyland Resort has announced that it will be offering a passholder-only preview for the new Fantasy Faire at Disneyland prior to its official opening on March 12, 2013.
The AP preview will take place between March 7 and March 9, from 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Each passholder is allotted two hours within that period to experience the Fantasy Faire.
To obtain wristbands, passholders may begin registering inside the entrance to Frontierland starting at 10:30 am on the day of the event. All participating Guests (ages 3 and older) must be valid Annual Passholders on the day of the event and must register in person. It is recommended that all members of the party register at the same time.
Once a passholder has presented their pass and event availability has been confirmed, they will receive a color-coded event wristband for the assigned entry time period.
For more information, visit the passholder event page.
