Although the news of the cancelation recently broke, some fans are already taking to social media to express their disappointment but also understanding about the situation. Carol M Vazquez posted:

Turns out it isn’t just PA/NJ as I had thought.

So sorry to the entire cast of Disney Princess Concert for the delays. We love you. For now we’ll be living vicariously through the Saudi Arabia audiences this week. Break legs!

The show is still set to open in Saudi Arabia as scheduled this week.
