    We will be in Disney World may 10-17 with with our five year old daughter. She asks me daily if she will meet Merida, Aerial and Tinker bell. I tell her I hope so, but that we won't know until we get there.... Are those characters always there?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Beth!

    Your trip is just around the corner. Are you too excited to sleep yet?!

    I have great news for you to share with your daughter!  She can meet all three of them in the Magic Kingdom. 

    She can meet Merida in Fantasyland in a unique "play and greet" experience in Fairytale Garden. Its located between Cinderella Castle and the Mad Tea Party.

    Look for Ariel at her Grotto in the New Fantasyland.  Its next to the new Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid attraction.

    For Tinker Bell, follow the pixie dust to the Adventureland Veranda to Tinker Bell's Magical Nook. She appears daily with some of her other fairy friends. The friends may take turns appearing with Tinker Bell but you can ask a Cast Member at the entrance who is currently with her.

    Be sure to pick up a Times Guide when you enter the Magic Kingdom for that day's character appearance times. Times Guides are available as you enter the parks, Guest Relations and most merchandise locations.

    Please feel free to visit again with any other questions. We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
