Branson, MO: The Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure will be an even more magical place to visit on Sunday, March 22nd from noon to 4pm, for Princess Day, as the Princesses from Branson’s As You Wish Princess Parties will be stopping in for a visit.

“We are extremely excited for our princesses to visit The Butterfly Palace.”, Says Renee Eaton, owner of As You Wish Princess Parties. “Stepping into the building already feels like you’re stepping into a wondrous and magical place. It’s beautiful, and a perfect place to meet fairies and princesses.” She goes on to say, “Fairy tale princesses are known for their love of all creatures, great or small, and butterflies are no exception. In fact, you will probably see butterflies in just about every princess film, or illustration. They are perfect together as they are both symbols of hope, beauty, and kindness.”

Everyone is invited to meet their favorite princesses, who will take time to pose for pictures, sign autographs and give warm hugs. Among them will be Cinderella, Tinker Bell, Ariel, Belle, the Ice Queen and her sister, and more! Perhaps you will find them playing in the Rainforest Mirror Maze, saying hello to their Rainforest friends in the Science Center, or enjoying the peaceful beauty of all the free flying tropical butterflies in the Aviary! Little princesses are encouraged to wear their own beautiful princess gowns and spend a fun-filled afternoon with Fairy Tale Royalty exploring and learning about the rainforest.

Regular priced admission will be charged, however there is no additional fee to visit the princesses. Local prices will be valid for residents and employees of Stone and Taney Counties with proof of ID/Paystub.
