by | Sep 1, 2021 | Magic Kingdom, WDW Blog

Chasing down ALL the Disney Princess attractions at Magic Kingdom is the perfect adventure for your young princesses and princes on their next trip to Disney World. Can you do them all in a day?

Where can you go under the sea with Ariel, read a book with Belle, or soar through the clouds on a magic carpet ride with Jasmine? Magic Kingdom’s Disney Princess attractions are your best bet.

The Ultimate Princess Celebration

Currently, there are 12 official Disney Princesses: Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Merida, Moana, Mulan, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Tiana. Hopefully, Raya will be official soon, and it won’t take three years like it did for Moana.

To make things magically confusing, in April, Disney launched the Ultimate Princess Celebration, adding Anna and Elsa in the Disney Princess mix (as queens).

For this article, we’re going old school and focusing on the official 12 princesses, per princess.disney.com, and exploring all their royal attractions at Magic Kingdom.

Some of the attractions may still be closed during revised park operations. Check the My Disney Experience app for closures and wait times. 

Full List of the Disney Princess Attractions at Magic Kingdom

  • Mickey’s PhilharMagic
  • Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid
  • Enchanted Tales with Belle
  • Cinderella Castle
  • The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Splash Mountain … soon

Princess and the … Duck?

Where is the best place to find princesses at Magic Kingdom? Fantasyland, of course.

Disney Trivia: At which Fantasyland attraction can you see not one, not two, but three Disney Princesses?

Nope, it’s not Cinderella’s Royal Table character meal. Though you can dine with quite a few princesses, Disney considers that dining, not an attraction.

If you guessed Mickey’s PhilharMagic, you’re right!

This 3D adventure will have you: 

  • Grabbing at jewelry with Donald inside Ariel’s cave.
  • Soaring on a magic carpet ride with Jasmine, Aladdin, and Donald.
  • Getting a delicious whiff of Belle’s meal as Donald runs around during Be Our Guest.

Tip: Try to be the last to enter the theatre. If you can leave a polite amount of space between you and the other guests, go ahead and have your own princess sing-along.

Princess Aurora at Magic Kingdom

Character meals, parades, and nighttime shows are great places to find your favorite sleepy princess, her fairies, and Maleficent. 

Since there are not currently any Sleeping Beauty attractions and we want to show this classic film some love, I’m adding Aurora’s color-changing dress at Castle Couture to the list.

Princess Ariel at Magic Kingdom

When New Fantasyland opened in December of 2012, Ariel got to be part of the world.

Nestled between Belle’s Village and Storybook Circus is all things The Little Mermaid with:

  • Prince Eric’s Cafe
  • Ariel’s Grotto
  • The attraction Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid

This attraction really celebrates the amazing soundtrack of the movie as you gently move through classic scenes from the film in your clamshell.

You may even spot a few snarfblatts and dinglehoppers when you play the Scuttle game in line

Princess Belle at Magic Kingdom

She may be so peculiar, but Belle is quite the popular princess. Cinderella’s castle may be more iconic, but Belle has one too.

Belle also has the attraction Enchanted Tales with Belle, a tavern, a popcorn cart, her own village, and that magical cameo in Mickey’s PhilHarmagic.

In Enchanted Tales with Belle, you’ll wander through Maurice’s workshop and then take a magical portal into Belle’s library in Beast’s castle for a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

Definitely volunteer to participate, and you may even get your own unique magical moment with Princess Belle.

Princess Cinderella at Magic Kingdom

At the end of Main Street sits the most iconic Disney Princess attraction of them all: Cinderella Castle.

The castle is even more magical with its princess pink makeover for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World.

Did You Know… This is not the first time Cinderella Castle has been pink to celebrate an important Disney anniversary. Travel by map to Magic Kingdom circa 1998 and see the last time the castle was pink.

As with any good castle, Cinderella Castle has royal dining, an opulent suite, a grand staircase, expensive art, and a fountain. There always seems to be a fountain!

Once you have all your pics of the gorgeous front of the castle, make sure to see:

  • The Wishing Well: See how many of Cindy’s animal friends you can spot carved into the base of the Wishing Well.
  • Cinderella Fountain: Find it in the back of the castle outside the entrance to Castle Couture. Get down low to spot the crown on Cinderella’s head.  
  • Murals: Spot these on the walls as you walk through the castle. They tell the story of Cinderella and even feature caricatures of two Disney Imagineers in the glass slipper scene.

Don’t forget to ride the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel before the clock strikes 12 and all the horses turn back into mice.

Princess Jasmine at Magic Kingdom

A princess in Adventureland? Oh yes!

The Magic Carpets of Aladdin attraction in Adventureland is a wondrous place. I’d honestly never been on this attraction until my 14th trip to Disney, and it really is quite fun.

Right near the attraction, you’ll find the exotic Agrabah Bazaar where Aladdin told me Jasmine spends way too much time shopping.

Princesses Merida, Moana, Mulan, and Pocahontas at Magic Kingdom

If you’re a princess and your name starts with M, Magic Kingdom is not really the park for you.

You can meet Merida over in Fantasyland and sometimes Moana sails over to Adventureland for a meet-and-greet during special holiday parties, but there are no attractions for these ladies.

Sorry, Pocahontas and Mulan fans, no attractions but you can meet the former at Animal Kingdom and latter at EPCOT.

Princess Rapunzel at Magic Kingdom 

Tangled Bathrooms in Fantasyland

Can bathrooms be considered an attraction? When they’re the Tangled restrooms, they certainly can be!

The Tangled restrooms area feels like you’ve stepped into Rapunzel’s world with: 

  • Hidden Pascal
  • Walls covered in suns and flowers
  • Maximus’ hoofprints
  • Rapunzel’s tower in the distance
  • Posters advertising the dreamers that hang out at the Snuggly Duckling

Princess Snow White at Magic Kingdom

Disney was doing a lot of whistling while they work to create the only princess roller coaster at Walt Disney World, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

This coaster has it all: twists, turns, music, dancing, a colorful mine, and adorable Dopey peeking out of a pile of diamonds that shine.

Experience a ride on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train with our WDW Podcast

This ride still gets pretty long lines but tries to keep guests amused with multiple interactive games. Dopey and the soap is my favorite.  

Princess Tiana at Magic Kingdom

Tiana is almost there and will finally have an attraction at Magic Kingdom. Disney has announced a retheming of Splash Mountain to Princess and the Frog. This will be the first Disney Princess-themed water ride

No opening date yet, but we are so ready to take a ride down to “Nawlins.”  

To Attractions & Beyond

There are so many ways to party like a royal at the Magic Kingdom—parades, promenades, shows, meals, meet-and-greets—but there is just something extra magical about becoming part of the story, if only briefly, at these Disney Princess attractions at Magic Kingdom. 

Is your dream-big moment resting your head in the Cinderella Castle suite? Definitely open up Issue 95: Once Upon a Time and find your happily ever after with a photo tour of the suite.
