    Hi Allison, thanks so much for answering previous ?s. You are so great! I have an ADR for CRT in Jan 2011, which characters are most likely to be there? Does Ariel ever make an appearance? And, does Tiana appear at any character dining? Thanks again!

    Welcome Back Victoria,

    I really appreciate your super sweet words! It is my pleasure to assist you!

    You're going to love Cinderella's Royal Table. Its so cool to go beyond the majestic walls & see inside (if only I could make my way into Cinderella's Royal Castle Suite to spend the night - still working on that one). Cinderella is always there unless she's having a glass slipper repaired - it is her Castle after all. She is usually joined by 3 of the following princesses: Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Jasmine & Snow White. There is no guarantee that either of the other princesses will appear - it varies so you may or may not meet Ariel in Jan. One of my co-panelists was there recently & she was fortunate to see Ariel. 

    Although Ariel's Grotto is currently closed, Ariel is making appearances at the Adventureland Veranda Porch - check the Times Guide as you enter the park for appearance times. This may or may not change prior to your visit in January. Ariel can also be seen in the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade held most afternoons in the MK. You can also find Ariel at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion in Epcot & The Voyage of the Little Mermaid Show & Fantasmic! at DHS.

    Princess Tiana is not currently appearing at any Disney character meals but I'd love to see that change.  She does appear with Prince Naveen daily in Liberty Square near Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in the MK. She has also recently joined the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade.

    Please feel free to check back closer to your trip. We should be able to give you a better idea of who is appearing where late Dec. Always keep in mind that the line-up is always subject to change daily without notice. The one thing I know for sure is that you'll have a fabulous trip!  Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
