    Good morning! We are excited about our upcoming trip in January! We want to make sure we see the characters we missed last year. I am mainly curious where Rapunzel and Merida will be. I was also wondering if Tinkerbell and the other princesses are moving.

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation, Sarah!  I know you must be getting very will be here before you know it!  I just called Disney directly to verify my information for you and currently Rapunzel is greeting guests at Town Square Theatre in Magic Kingdom Park while Merida has a Character Greeting at the Fairytale Garden in Magic Kingdom Park. Currently, Tinker bell and the Disney Fairies are located in Tinker Bell's Magical Nook in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park. The Disney Princesses will be getting a new home called Princess Fairytale Hall in 2013 as part of the New Fantasyland expansion; however, an official opening date has not been announced at this time. There has been no official announcement regarding Tinker Bell's Character Greeting location being moved. Tinker Bell's Magical Nook is a fairly new Character Greeting Location and features a whimsical, vibrant setting. Please be aware that Character Greetings are subject to change at any time. I would recommend picking up a Times Guide when entering the parks for up to date Character Greeting Times and Locations. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions as your planning progresses. Sending pixie-dusted wishes your way that you get to meet all of the Disney Characters on your wish list, Sarah!
    Happy Planning,
