    Bernie, Thanks for answering my question on where we may be able meet Ariel in the MK. Are there usually really long lines. If following the time guide, generally how long should we line up before the pricesses is supposed to arrive.

    Hi Karen!

    Thanks for sending me another question!  Ariel is very popular as you can imagine.  However, I don't think most guests pay attention to the Times Guide with regards to meeting her or most other Disney characters.  Instead, it's more like they see her and the line and they just hop in line.  So the best bet to both see her, and minimize you wait in line, is to line up about 15 minutes before she is due to make an appearance.  You should be near the front of the line then.  If you wait for her to show up, then you will generally have a much longer wait as a lot of guests hop in the line once they see her.

    I hope this helps!  Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and please send me any more questions.  Are responses are limited in length;I can provide a lot of detail on various things, but via one question at a time!
