Our Guide to Meeting the Princesses at Walt Disney World

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

Merida let us shoot her bow and arrow!
The Princesses usually meet guests by themselves, or perhaps with their Prince by their side. They can also be met in groups at two Disney restaurants: Akershus Royal Banquet Hall (ARBH) in the Norway Pavilion of Epcot or at Cinderella’s Royal Table (CRT) inside the Castle at Magic Kingdom. The Princesses who appear at these restaurants vary and you never know who will grace guests with their presence. I love seeing my daughter's eyes light up with excitement when another Princess comes in the room! They make their way around to every table, spending time with each guest, and signing autographs.

Here are the Princesses' Current Locations*:

Snow White - Epcot's World Showcase, in the Germany Pavilion, and occasionally at CRT and ARBH.
Meeting Snow White in Epcot

Rapunzel - Magic Kingdom's Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland and occassionally at CRT.

Jasmine - Epcot's World Showcase, in the Morocco Pavilion, and also at the Magic Kingdom in Adventureland where she appears with Aladdin near the Magic Carpet Ride, and occasionally at ARBH in Epcot.

Ariel – Magic Kingdom in Fantasyland where she appears in mermaid form at Ariel’s Grotto, and occasionally ARBH and CRT in human form.
