Disneyland’s Carnation Plaza Gardens to Close Officially on April 30

As we first told you last August, Disneyland’s Carnation Plaza Gardens will close on April 30 to undergo refurbishment, before reopening as the new Fantasy Faire.

Fantasy Faire is billed as “an enchanting village square that will immerse guests in the stories of their favorite princesses.”  The Carnation Plaza Gardens Stage, which is home every weekend to the Jump, Jive, Boogie Swing Party will transform into the Fantasy Faire Stage, and will host stage retellings of Disney fairy tales.

If you are concerned about taking in one of the last Jump, Jive, Boogie Swing Party shows to be held in Carnation Gardens, you will have a few more chances to catch the fun.  The following acts will be performing this weekend through the end of April:

  • April 14 – featuring Doc Anello & the Swing Machine
  • April 21 – featuring Stompy Jones
  • April 28 – featuring Swingtown

Beginning Saturday, May 5, the Swing Party will continue in its new location at the Westside Stage in the Downtown Disney District.  Disney has not indicated when Fantasy Faire will be available for guest.
