    Hi! My 6 y\o daughter loves Ariel. What are the best suggestions to meet her? Going in October 2019 and we are first timers. Thanks for the help!

    Hi Carolyn, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Ariel is one Disney princess who loves to explore new things, so she's been known to appear all over the Walt Disney World Resort. Here are some places your little one can see her favorite princess:

    Meet Ariel at Her Grotto
    Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid
    Voyage of the Little Mermaid
    Mickey's Philharmagic
    Festival of Fantasy Parade
    Character Dining - Ariel may appear with her royal friends at Trattoria al Forno, Cinderella's Royal Table, and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Just know that the schedule of princesses at each restaurant is subject to change. I'd just tell your daughter that she's going to meet some princesses and let her be pleasantly surprised if Ariel is there.

    Ariel also has her own themed section of Disney's Art of Animation Resort! Even if you're not staying there, you're welcome to visit and let your little girl ooh and ahh over the larger-than-life figures from the movie.

    I hope this helps you plan a magical trip for your little princess, Carolyn! Please visit us again if you have any more questions.

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
