    I will be able to make my ADRs soon! My 3 yr old daughter loves Ariel, any suggestions on where our best chances of a character meal featuring Ariel may be?

    Hi, Cassandra!  The best place to possibly catch Ariel at a character meal is at Restaurant Akershus in the Norway pavilion at EPCOT.  The Storybook meals there sometimes feature Ariel - although she is in her human form, not in mermaid form.

    The princesses at Restaurant Akershus seem to be on a rather unpredictable rotation, however, so I can't tell you for sure you'll see Ariel once you arrive.  I can tell you, though, an absolute sure fire way to meet that beautiful mermaid Princess is at Ariel's Grotto at the Magic Kingdom.  You'll find her several times throughout the day, sitting for pictures, in Fantasyland.  There is some area to play at Ariel's Grotto, so we like to have mom or dad stand in line, and the other parent plays with the kids while we wait.

    Have a great time, and good luck with your reservations!
