    We are bringing our 5 year old daughter to Disney for the first time May 10-15. She adores Tinkerbell and friends and all of the Disney Princesses. What should we plan for activities and dining to be sure that her "dreams come true?" Thank you

    Hi Jane!

     There are many activities and dining experiences for your daughter to meet all the princess' and fairies.
    Let's start with your dining options.  Cinderella's Royal Table is located in Cinderella castle at the Magic Kingdom.  Here Cinderella greets you in the loby of the castle for photos and autographs.  Inside the restaurant the princess' waiting to meet you include Snow White, Jasmine, Belle and Princess Aurora. Another is the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall located in Epcot at the Norway pavilion.  Here the princess' you will meet include Snow White, Jasmine, Belle, Ariel and Princess Aurora.  The third is Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner located at the Grand Floridian Resort.  The characters here are Cinderella, Prince Charming, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia & Grizella.  You can make dining reservations by calling (407) WDW-DINE or you can click here to make your reservations online.

    The princess' also take part in the afternoon and evening parades at Magic Kingdom and the show at Cinderella castle.  When you arrive at the park check the Times Guide for the times of these attractions. Ariel's Grotto is an ocean-themed play area for children where you can meet Ariel.  At Hollywood Studios there are 2 shows I know your daughter will love.  Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage are shows not to be missed.

      Tinkerbell and her fairy friends can be found in Pixie Hollow at the Magic Kingdom.  Here you can meet Tink and her friends for photos and autographs.  Tinkerbell also flies thru the sky to start the "Wishes" fireworks performance at the Magic Kingdom. Have a magical time!
