    We're planning our first visit to Disney World this fall. Will Merida still be meeting guests in the Magic Kingdom? Her calendar ends in August.

    Hi, there!

     Julie, I'm so excited to hear you're planning your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You're sure to Fall into magic!

     Magic Kingdom Park offers lots of unique Character Experiences, but one of the most fun is certainly meeting Merida at Fairytale Garden. There, Guests join the Princess of DunBroch for tales of archery and Brave adventures in the Scottish Highlands! I haven't heard that Merida will be traveling back to Scotland to change her fate, so my best guess is that her calendar just hasn't been updated past August. The schedule for many Characters is often not made available until as little as 30-days out. I'm sure the closer you are to your arrival date, you'll see times listed to meet Merida!

     I'm guessing you have a Merida fan in your family, so be sure to catch a performance of Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom Park. The Brave float and segment is my favorite!

     Don't forget to download the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your visit. This app has lots of cool features, but you may find the Character Finder especially handy. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Julie. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
