    HI There, Could you please help me out with a question regarding Princesses. My little girl loves everything Princess . could you please tell me the best places to meet princesses and get her up close for some hugs. !!Thanks so much

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jodi! 

    Disney Princess attractions, entertainment and dining are must-do activities for my daughter while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort.

    In my opinion, the best way to meet our royal friends is by making character dining reservations. What I love about character dining is that you can book in advance and have a delicious meal while the characters come to meet and greet you at your table. This is very convenient because you do not have to wait in line and you get to greet more than one princess in one single opportunity. My favorite restaurants to meet princesses are Cinderella’s Royal Table and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall

    I suggest planning a special day at Magic Kingdom Park by booking a princess makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, followed by a meal with Disney Princesses inside Cinderella Castle at Cinderella’s Royal Table. We did this for my girl when she turned 5-years-old and she had the most magical time! This park is also your destination to meet Tiana and Rapunzel, Elena, Merida, Ariel, and enjoy attractions such as Enchanted Tales with Belle, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid. 

    Akershus Royal Banquet Hall can be found at EPCOT, my second favorite Disney Princess destination after Magic Kingdom Park. Located in the Norway pavilion in the World Showcase, the restaurant is right next to Frozen Ever After and Royal Summerhus, giving you convenient access to experience Arandelle and say hello to Anna and Elsa. At EPCOT World Showcase you can also meet Mulan in China, Snow White in Germany, Aurora and Belle in France and Jasmine in Morocco. Check the My Disney Experience mobile app and pick up a Times Guide at park entrance for times.

    These are my favorite tips, Jodi! In addition, there are Disney Princess dining opportunities outside the theme parks and they are also magical, but the restaurants I recommended are the places where you can meet more than one or two princesses during your meal. Please note that all character appearances at restaurants and at the parks are subject to change without notice. 

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by real soon for more Disney Princess tips as you plan your visit. 

    Best magical wishes,
