Princess falls flat on her face during live entertainment at Magic Kingdom

Slowly but surely, more fan-favorite experiences–and some brand-new experiences–are becoming available to Guests at Disney Parks, thanks to a decrease in the average numbers of COVID-19 cases.

More restaurants are open at Disney World than at any time since the parks reopened in July 2020, and live entertainment in the parks is back and better than ever.

One of those live entertainment offerings is Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire, which returned to Magic Kingdom after being unavailable for approximately a month because of a continuation of the coronavirus pandemic. The show takes place at Cinderella Castle several times each day at Magic Kingdom and is a Guest-favorite experience for all ages.

And while the experience is magical and exciting for kids and kids at heart, one of the characters in the stage show had a rough go of it during a recent performance.

In a video posted online by @tenorbuds, Princess Elena of Avalor from Disney Junior can be seen dancing with other characters on the stage in front of Cinderella Castle. Suddenly, the Latina Princess has a misstep and takes a tumble to the ground. Just before the video cuts, viewers can see Snow White reach down as if to help Princess Elena to her feet again.

Disney World welcomes Guests to the event, calling it a “Faire to Remember”:

It takes a whole enchanted kingdom to put on this show—and you’re cordially invited. Look for Tiana and friends from “The Princess and the Frog” and Rapunzel and Flynn from “Tangled.” Mickey even recruits Olaf, Anna and Elsa from “Frozen” to join in!

Watch as classic and contemporary Disney Characters interact in a magical, musical extravaganza featuring lively dancing, dazzling effects and music from the films. Don’t miss the all-new finale featuring Mickey Mouse and his friends in their sparkling, EARidescent fashions!

Tumbles and spills are bound to happen, especially as many times as Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire is performed in a day. Here’s hoping no princesses were hurt in the performance that day, and if you haven’t seen the performance before, be sure to check it out on your next visit to Magic Kingdom.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
