A Guide to Meeting the Princesses at Walt Disney World

One of the best experiences at Walt Disney World is meeting your favorite characters and Disney royalty. Autographs from the Princesses are my daughter's most cherished souvenirs. 

Here are the Princesses' Current Locations*:

Pro Tip – Princess Fairytale Hall and Ariel's Grotto offer Lightning Lane! If you are using Disney Genie+ during your visit to Magic Kingdom and the lines are long, utilize it for characters and Princesses.

Snow White – Epcot's World Showcase, in the Germany Pavilion, and at Cinderella's Royal Table and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. You can meet her at Storybook Dining at Artist Point, Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Guests have met her at Town Square Theater in Magic Kingdom as well.

Rapunzel – Magic Kingdom's Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland.

Jasmine – Magic Kingdom in Adventureland where she appears with Aladdin near the Magic Carpet Ride, and occasionally at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. She can also be found in Epcot's Morocco Pavilion. She was recently at Cinderella's Royal Table also.

Ariel – Magic Kingdom in Fantasyland where she appears in mermaid form at Ariel’s Grotto, or Cinderella's Royal Table and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in human form.

Cinderella - Magic Kingdom's Princess Fairytale Hall and Cinderella's Royal Table, of course. She appears at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall too.

Mulan – Epcot's China Pavilion, near the Temple or water.

Tiana – Magic Kingdom's Princess Fairytale Hall

Raya and Mirabel –  They are currently only seen in the Adventure Friends Cavalcade in Magic Kingdom however, this fall, Mirabel will greet guests in Fairytale Garden in the Magic Kingdom.

Merida – Magic Kingdom, on the path next to the castle in Fantasyland. Find Merida just before the Cheshire Cafe in Fairytale Gardens.

Elena of Avalor – She meets in Magic Kingdom at Princess Fairytale Hall.

Aurora – She is typically at Cinderella's Royal Table and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. She also occasionally meets in Epcot, at the France Pavilion. Look for her in the gazebo.

Anna & Elsa – They meet together in Epcot in the Norway Pavilion near the Frozen ride. 
Belle – Magic Kingdom's interactive story time attraction, Enchanted Tales with Belle, and Epcot's Norway Pavilion at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. She greets guests in her yellow ball gown before dinner. In Epcot she appears in her blue provincial dress along the lake between America and France.

Mary Poppins – (Not a Princess, but we love her anyway!) She is at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, has been spotted in the lawn near the Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom, and at Epcot's United Kingdom Pavilion.

Anastasia & Drizella – (Also, not Princesses, but these two are a lot of fun!) They meet periodically throughout the day near the Cinderella Fountain beside the Castle, and they occasionally ride the Carousel. Fairy Godmother is usually near them too.
See your favorite Princesses in these other locations and shows:
  • Fantasmic! Disney's Hollywood Studios
  • Adventure Friends Cavalcade in Magic Kingdom
  • Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom
  • Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage in Disney's Hollywood Studios

If there is a character or Princess that you would love to meet, just ask one of our agents, and they will help you find them! Which Princess or character do you wish to meet? I would love to meet Jane from Tarzan who meets on rare, special occasions or Mirabel from Encanto, who is only seen in the Adventure Friends Calvacade!

*Character meet and greets are subject to change at any time. Check your My Disney Experience App or the Times Guide in each park to verify character meet and greet locations.
Summer fell in love with the Disney Parks on her first visit and knew she wanted to help others experience the magic there and save money. You can email Summer at

House of Blues Brunch

Brunch is probably my favorite meal to go out for, and Disney Springs has some hidden gems in the brunch department. House of Blues offers weekend brunch with one of the best deals on property, bottomless mimosas!  If you’re up for it, House of Blues offers a laid back atmosphere with live music for brunch. It is available Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 2pm, with the full menu available after 12pm. We were sat in the back room where we couldn’t see the stage but could hear it and it was a great vibe!  Bottomless mimosas and coffee were the popular choice for beverages, but they also offer a variety of brunch cocktails and other options. Bottomless mimosa! We were a party of 8 and hungry, so we started with an order of nachos from the lunch menu and they were a HUGE portion, so glad we had a lot of people to share them with.  BBQ Nachos - Four cheese sauce, avocado, roasted corn salsa, pickled red onion, tomato, Memphis BBQ sauce, cilantro crema, cotija cheese. Chicken, Brisket or Pul

Giovanni's Table on Liberty of the Seas

Royal Caribbean Cruise Line has wonderful specialty dining options on all of their ships.  They all have some variety of an Italian restaurant and I've tried Jamie's Italian on the Symphony of the Seas and now Giovanni's Table on Liberty of the Seas. The restaurant is located by the Windjammer Buffet, tucked off to one side as you enter the area.  Once inside, the atmosphere is dark and cozy, very different from the buffet hectic world outside the doors.  There is an open kitchen along the one wall and windows along the other.  The restaurant is a set upcharge, and then you can order whatever you want from the food menu that is to your liking throughout the meal.  Giovanni's is actually undergoing some changes on a lot of RCCL ships, but Liberty hadn't had those changes yet so it was still the "old" one, which was fine by us. We had an amazing meal here, and wouldn't hesitate to come back again on a future cruise.  You might see Giovanni's Kitchen

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne
