    Hi Lynell, 

    Welcome to planDisney! You’re never far from royalty at Walt Disney World Resort, and you’re lucky enough to be traveling with your own little princess!

    To meet fellow royalty, the perfect place to go is Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom Park. Your granddaughter can meet Cinderella and a visiting princess, or Princess Tiana and a visiting princess. You can also Meet Ariel at her Grotto or help retell Beauty & the Beast at Enchanted Tales with Belle. Don’t forget to catch the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and wave to the princesses with your granddaughter. You may even spot those evil stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizella looking for their own Prince Charming in Magic Kingdom Park!

    In EPCOT, you can meet several princesses in their respective countries. The best tip for finding characters is to use your My Disney Experience mobile app and click on the location pin at the bottom of the screen. Then sort to find characters and click “Show List.” You’ll be able to see which characters are available to meet and when they will be meeting Guests. 

    There are some dining locations that offer Princess dining experiences. Eat inside Cinderella Castle and meet Disney Princesses at Cinderella’s Royal Table. In EPCOT, you can meet Disney Princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. And at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, you can dine at Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White. These dining options are very popular, but you can make advance dining reservations up to 60 days before your visit. 

    Of course, you can’t forget a visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for a royal makeover. This is also a popular choice that can be booked 60 days in advance. If you book a Capture Your Moment Session at Magic Kingdom Park, your granddaughter can have a personal PhotoPass session throughout Fantasyland.

    Enjoy your special visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Lynell. If you have any future planning questions, please visit me again at planDisney!

    Have courage and be kind,
