    Going to Disneyland for the first time, what's the best way to meet the most princesses without having to do line ups?

    Hello, Sylvia! I am so excited that you are planning your first visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    Each time we visit the parks, meeting princesses is always high on the to-do list. My first recommendation is to book a breakfast or lunch reservation at Ariel's Grotto. You will meet Ariel when you enter the restaurant and then you will meet a handful of her regal friends while you dine. 

    To meet other princesses around the parks, you will usually have to wait in line a bit. However, if you head to Royal Hall in Fantasy Faire first thing in the morning, the wait time will usually be rather low and you can meet up to three princesses at this location. Then, use the Disneyland app to spot when and where other princesses are meeting. Princess Tiana, for example, can usually be found on or near the Mark Twain Riverboat and, in my experience, there is usually little to no wait to meet her there. To meet Anna and Elsa, venture over to Disney California Adventure Park. I have found that the line for Anna and Elsa tends to move quickly and since it's inside the Disney Animation Building, the wait is pretty pleasant.

    Finally, no princess-centric trip would be complete without a reservation at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. There are different packages to choose from including the Castle Package that includes priority access to meet the princesses at Royal Hall. Have a great trip!
