The gates of the Children’s Discovery Gardens open June 18th for America’s largest and longest operating Princess Adventure. Ron Hatfield, CEO of Princess Festivals International, reported that guests came from every state in the USA and three countries in 2012 to enjoy the princess themed fun.
The event, which runs from June 18-22, is designed for hands-on interaction with classical princesses and the new Princess Festival characters. Ten “Princess Quest” adventures are designed for children ages 3-10 to solve mysteries, find lost characters, and participate with the Princesses and other characters by playing with them in fairytale like challenges. Every five minutes another one of the carefully designed new adventure starts.
Hatfield stated that the event also features two plays and a premier show of its new Princess Festival Puppets for young guests to enjoy when they are ready to take a little rest from the very active tasks of rescuing and solving in the Princess Quests.
Children can also get their faces painted, a professional photograph taken with photo-shopped effects, participate with Peter Pan and Wendy in escaping Captain Hook, spontaneous dancing with the 12 dancing princesses , have their hair and nails done, ride in a horse drawn Cinderella coach, and much more.
The show also features especially selected girls who have been designated as “Forever Princesses” at 12:30 and another group at 5:30 each day. These girls have been selected because they have demonstrated the values of being “More than a Princess”, which means that they care about others and give service.
Many families and especially grandparents have made the Princess Festival an annual tradition. Typical of the testimonials received is this one from Missy Delgado in Huntington Beach California: “A family just moved here to Phoenix from Draper Utah - they have three little girls. I inquired if they have attended the Princess Festival, and the father said, "Oh yes! We really enjoyed it. It was better than our Disneyland trip."
