    Hi, I’m looking for advice on which Disney Princess activities I can schedule for my 5 year old granddaughter for our upcoming trip in September. It’s been quite a while since we visited and I’m out of date on what is available.

    Hiya Joe!

    Welcome to planDisney! I love spoiling my little princess when we visit Walt Disney World and I am excited to share some ideas to make your little princess feel special and treasured on this trip! 

    Here are some magical experiences that you should consider:

    - Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom Park- Schedule an appointment with a Fairy Godmother's Apprentice to give your little one a fairy tale makeover! In the most magical way, she will be pampered with a princess dress, hair styling, and makeup. This can be booked 60 days before you arrive online. 

    - Meet her favorite princess! I'm not sure which princess she loves but there are special meet-and-greets for a variety of princesses.  Magic Kingdom Park has Princess Fairytale Hall where you can meet Princess Tiana plus a surprise visiting princess. You can confirm which princess will be joining Tiana on the day you visit by checking on the My Disney Experience Mobile App and selecting the map icon. Then on the top center drop-down menu select Characters. You can "Show List" or navigate to Princess Fairytale Hall to see the princess that is visiting. This is the way to find ANY princess or character you want to meet. Right now, the most likely princess that will join Tiana is Rapunzel but that can change at any time.  Cinderella will be meeting with another visiting princess as well in the same hall but through a different entrance with a different queue. Today Cinderella is joined by Elena. An advanced reservation is not needed for this experience but if you don't want a very long wait you can purchase Genie+ and secure access to the Lightning Lane as both meet-and-greets have one. Ariel can be found in her grotto in Magic Kingdom or for a limited time meet Ariel from the live-action story in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Anna and Elsa are hanging out at their Royal Sommerhus in EPCOT. Belle can be journeying through the France Pavilion in EPCOT. My favorite Princess Jasmine is exploring the Morocco Pavilion in EPCOT and she joins her love Aladdin in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom Park!

    - Character Dining. There are quite of few choices now that you can pick based on availability, menu, and princess she wants to meet. Cinderella's Royal Table located inside Cinderella Castle is just a spectacular experience. In EPCOT you can enjoy more Nordic fare at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall while meeting more princesses! Disney's Wilderness Lodge has a special dining event with characters from the Disney film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White

    I hope this helps!

    Happy Planning!
