    Hi Marcy - We 'Sail Away' on 1/19 on the FANTASY!! So excited! Would you be able to tell me if Princess Merida and/or Rapunzel will be on board with us? These two are my 5 year old daughter's favorites. Thanks for your help!

    Welcome aboard, Julie! I'm so happy to hear you'll be sailing on the Fantasy soon! Your 5-year old daughter is going to have the time of her life!

    I'm sorry to say that currently, neither Rapunzel nor Merida are doing Meet and Greet sessions onboard. However, Rapunzel is on the ship, appearing with Flynn Ryder in "Wishes", which is a Broadway-style show running one night in the Walt Disney Theatre onboard. You'll want to go to that show for sure, as many other favorites will make appearances! 
    Schedules and characters are always subject to change, so who knows, perhaps Merida or Rapunzel will begin Meet and Greets in the future. 

    Your daughter will most definitely enjoy attending one of the Princess Gatherings that takes place once or twice on your cruise in the atrium of the ship. Check your Personal Navigator for exact days and times. Usually it's held around 9:00 a.m., but again, you'll need to verify the time and day during your sailing. I recommend you arrive early for this event, as the line gets very long. My daughter and I like to go about 45 minutes before the Princess Gathering and sit in line writing post cards to friends and family while we wait. It makes the time pass quickly, we get our cards done, and we're close to the front of the line! Your daughter can expect to meet four or five of her favorite princesses at once! We've seen Belle, Snow White, Tiana, Cinderella and Ariel at the gatherings. Have your camera and autograph book ready, as she'll get one-on-one time with each princess! 

    I hope this information helps, Julie. Please let me know if I can help with any other plans! 
    Have a magical cruise with your little princess!
