Inside the new Princess Fairytale Hall at the Magic Kingdom

Opened last Wednesday, here is a look inside the new PFTH at the MK. Fastpasses are available for the PFTH near the PeterPan area of Fantasyland. For now, nothing replaced the princesses at the previous meet and greet in town square at the front of the park. You can continue to meet Mickey at Town Square. 

Inside are the portraits of the different princesses, along with Cinderellas glass slippers.
 There are two queues, each queue you will be able to meet 2. I suggest getting there early, queue for one and fastpass the other if meeting princesses are on your list. 
The new Princess Fairytale Hall is located just behind Cinderella's castle, to the right of the Carousel. It used to be the Snow White ride.

Disney is the last of the 3 major theme park to serve Starbucks, Universal has had one for several years inside Universal Studios and in 2010 the Cypress Bakery inside Seaworld started serving Starbucks coffee. The Disney location serves breakfast items and also participates in the Disney Dining Plan.
