Are you and your little princesses and princes ready to celebrate during the Ultimate Princess Celebration? Here’s how:
World Princess Week at Walt Disney World Resort
At our home park, there are plenty of ways to participate in the Ultimate Princess Celebration. For starters, EPCOT will be home to a new Tiana-themed playground that will be open through the duration of the 2021 Food & Wine Festival.
And, just as Tiana would have it, Disney World will be full of new, delicious treats in honor of World Princess Week. Across the parks, you’ll be able to find snacks themed after the 12 Disney Princesses (Raya is notably absent) and the two Queens of Arendelle (Elsa and Anna).
If you can swing by Disney Springs on Aug. 26, your princesses can be a part of the Princess Promenade at the AdventHealth Waterside Stage, from 2 to 6 PM. You’ll enjoy plenty of princess-themed entertainment, and everyone is encouraged to wear their favorite Disney Princess costume.
Disney Springs will also host three art expression walls, which make the perfect photo op. These three walls will be themed to “Tales of Courage and Kindness,” the Disney Princess storybook collection.
While at Disney Springs, don’t forget to shop for all of the new Disney Princess merch.

Ultimate Princess Celebration at Disneyland Resort
If you’re more of a West Coast kinda princess, head to Disneyland Resort during World Princess Week. At Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Napa Rose will host Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures on Aug. 26. Reservations are available now! (Don’t miss this; those chocolate princess cake pops are 🔥🔥🔥.)
While celebrating the Ultimate Princess Celebration at DLR, head to Snow White’s Enchanted Wish, which boasts new audio and visual tech to enhance the experience.
Former princess (now queens) Anna and Elsa will even be in attendance. You can spot them on a float on Main Street, U.S.A. while dancing to your favorite Frozen songs.
After some time in the parks, head over to Downtown Disney. California Sole, Kayla’s Cake, and The LEGO Store are just some of the shops offering up unique Disney Princess merch. You can also snap a photo in front of the Moana artwork.
World Princess Week at Aulani
If you are lucky enough to be spending World Princess Week beachside at Aulani in Hawaii, you’ve got plenty of ways to participate in the Ultimate Princess Celebration. Try out the Moana Dole Whip Fresh Fruit Sundae in a crispy waffle bowl, complete with a picture of Moana.
But if that doesn’t satiate your sweet tooth, you can also head to Little ‘Opihi’s to get the Chocolate Dipped Banana with Macadamia Nuts. It too features Moana in a little edible white chocolate circle.
Ultimate Princess Celebration at Disneyland Paris
The oldest Disney Princess stories are set in Europe, so it makes sense to spend World Princess Week at Disneyland Paris. Across the pond, you can find Selfie Spots and Magic Shots that include princesses like Merida and Jasmine, as well as our resident Frozen queens.
Shoppers and foodies can delight in a number of World Princess Week offerings at various shops and restaurants.
World Princess Week at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
From Aug. 23 to 29, Hong Kong Disneyland will feature Grammy Award-winning recording artist Brandy belting out “Starting Now,” the new Ultimate Princess Celebration anthem.
While at the park, you’ll be able to spot several of your favorite Disney Princesses.
