Going to Disney most certainly means immersing yourself in some type of magic. To some, that magic is found in the Disney princesses.
Here are four fantastic ways to get your “princess fix” on your next visit to Walt Disney World.
1. Walk-up Meet & Greets
: This is perfect for those who like little to no planning. When you arrive at your theme park of choice, pick up a park map and entertainment guide and locate your favorite Disney princess.
Magic Kingdom: Ariel at Ariel’s Grotto in Fantasyland, Merida at the Fairytale Garden in Fantasyland, Jasmine at Agrabah in Adventureland, Snow White at the Town Square Courtyard in Main St. USA.
EPCOT: Anna and Elsa at the Royal Sommerhus in Norway; Belle in the France Promendade, Aurora in the France Fragrance Gardens, Mulan at the Temple of Heaven in China, Jasmine at the Lamps of Wonder in Morocco, Snow White at the Germany Wishing Well.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Sofia the First at the Animation Courtyard.
Animal Kingdom: Pocahontas at Character Landing.
2. FastPass+ Meet & Greets:
This might take a little more planning since some princesses acquire quite a line and therefore FastPass+ times get snatched up quickly. However, getting a FastPass+ in advance guarantees you will meet your favorite princess with little to no wait! (If you can’t get a FastPass+ don’t worry! You still have the option of waiting in line!)
Magic Kingdom: Belle at Enchanted Tales with Belle, Cinderella/Rapunzel/Tiana/Elena at Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantastyland, Ariel at her Grotto in Fantasyland.
3. Shows and Parades:
A great way to get an impromptu princess fix is by enjoying shows and parades that feature princesses.
Magic Kingdom: Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage, For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.
4. Character Dining:
