NEWS: Storytelling at Royal Theatre Is BACK In Disneyland!

One year ago Disneyland Resort began its phased reopening and a lot has changed in the parks since!

Masks are no longer required to be worn by fully vaccinated guests in most locations, most restaurants have reopened, parades and nighttime shows have returned, and even character meet & greets are “normal.” And, as of yesterday, another entertainment offering is BACK — but you need to know the secret to find out when you can see it!

Live theatrical performances have officially returned to Disneyland’s Royal Theatre in Fantasy Faire as of April 29th! Previously, this space was used as a modified meet and greet location for various Disney characters.


The shows feature the duo Mr. Smythe and Mr. Jones, who provide “witty and fast-paced” versions of Disney Princess tales like Beauty and the Beast and Tangled!

Showtimes won’t appear on the Disneyland app or printed show schedules for now though because it is in a soft reopening phase. Instead, you can find the showtimes listed on a sign just outside the theater.


We’ll keep an eye out for when official showtimes are published by Disneyland, and, in the meantime, check back here for the latest Disney news and updates!
