But once he does, he can walk up the wizard stairs and produce his magic key he got in the water world and unlock the chamber door. Then he can walk up to the princess and give her a smooch.
I always thought the "wizard stairs" was a metaphor like Jesse Moynihan (who storyboarded that episode) said.

Since we've already seen at least one leaked storyboard that reveals that, yes, Finn will be aging over the course of the show, the wizard stairs could simply be - you know, growing up.

Doesn't Princess Bubblegum have to die in the first place before they have to put her back together? I mean, I doubt she'd get younger if you took a bit of her hair off.
