    Any news on if or when Enchanted Tales with Belle and meeting Ariel in her Grotto will return to Disney World? Thanks!

    Hiya Diana,

    Welcome back to planDisney. We love it when you stop by with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning questions. 

    I love the Disney Princesses! What little girl didn't dream of a closet of sparkly dresses, glass slippers and her Prince Charming? I loved watching my little boys blush when one of the Princesses would spend time with them. Even as young men, they still have their favorite Princesses, and Ariel and Belle are at the top of that list. 

    While there has not been an official announcement on a re-opening date for Ariel at Her Grotto in Fantasyland or Enchanted Tales with Belle, I hope that they will be returning soon. In the meantime, there are a number of ways you can see and interact with a number of the Disney Princesses including a chance to see Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus or meeting Cinderella and one of her Princess friends at Princess Fairytale Hall. Another great way to find your favorite characters is by using the My Disney Experience mobile phone app. Simply visit the icon on your home page while in the app. You will be able to filter the location you are at and the characters, or in this case, Princesses you hope to meet and find any available times and locations. 

    Be sure to visit planDisney often as we will be sure to share updates as they are available. If I can assist with any further vacation planning tips, please stop back and see me. 

    Hope to see ya real soon,
