    I am planning a trip between Thanksgiving and Christmas. My little girl will be 3 1/2. Her favorites are Ariel and Bell, but we'd like to see all of them. What are the dining options to get the most "bang for our buck" so to speak?

    Hey Elizabeth, being the mom of three princesses, I thought I could help you out with this question.  There are two great princess dining options, that I like to recommend.  The first being CRT at MK.  Here your princess will meet Cinderella before she accepts her royal invitation to dine with some of her favorite princesses in the royal dining hall.  Princesses that will attend, but are never guaranteed, can include Belle, Snow White, Jasmine, and Sleeping Beauty.  These same princesses can also be found at Akershus, located in Norway at Epcot.  Princesses include Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Mulan.  (Once again these are not guaranteed, as I have even seen Mary Poppins at this dining experience.)  CRT is more expensive, but certainly a treat for any princess to dine in the castle, but with that said the Storybook Dining experience at Akershus is also fantastic, and a bit more cost effective.
    But now we still have to find Ariel.  Although she does not normally show up at any dining experiences, your little princess can meet her at the MK in Fantasyland.  She spends all day in her Grotto, which is located directly behind Dumbo.  It's a great location for her to meet and greet but to still be able to cool herself in the lagoon beside her grotto.
    Hope this helps and that you have a wonderful trip this winter.  Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel.
