    Are there any good tips for a first time trip with a 5 year old girl who can not wait to see the princess's? Are there any good tips for skipping the long wait lines?

    Hi Fraydi! How exciting you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time! My biggest tip for skipping lines at Characters Meet-and-Greet locations is to arrive at the theme parks for Rope Drop (daily opening ceremonies). Your little princess will absolutely delight in meeting Disney Princesses at any of the following locations:
    1. The Town Square Exposition Hall in Magic Kingdom during character appearances.
    2. She can meet Princess Ariel in her human form at the Adventureland Veranda Porch in Magic Kingdom and see her during Voyage of the Little Mermaid at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
    3. She will thoroughly enjoy meeting Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen during Character Greetings at Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom.
    4. You may find Snow White at the Germany Pavillion in Epcot. She makes regular appearances near the Wishing Well.
    5. Also in Epcot she may meet Princess Belle in France and Princess Jasmine in Morocco.
    6. Try booking Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom, Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot, or Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
    7. Your little princess can also be transformed into a Disney Princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Book your reservation by calling (407) WDW-STYLE.

    Be sure to check the Times Guide for the daily schedule to confirm character appearances in the theme parks. For Advanced Dining Reservations at any of the above locations, book as soon as possible by calling (407) WDW-DINE or online here. Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance. Have a memorable First Visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
