Princess and Knight Training sessions are free with paid show admission.

The new Princess Training program starts Saturday, June 30 and is hosted by the castle's own Princess Catalina. She will share the important traits essential to becoming a Princess while the Princesses-in-Training create their own Princess Hat. The session ends with instruction on the perfect princess curtsy.

Knight Training is hosted by the Castle's own Knights, Lord Chancellor and King Don Carlos.
