Note that these "Storybook" settings are incredibly generic. They are not adaptations of any previous material, just TheThemeParkVersion of fables and chivalry. If it is a straight adaptation of a specific fairy tale, then it falls under WholePlotReference. If it is a parody or subverted version of a popular story, it's a FracturedFairyTale.
