    For the Princess meals at Cinderella's Castle, is Ariel included? My 2 yr old LOVES The Little Mermaid and I would love to dress her up for the occassion but not if Ariel won't be one of the princesses present.

    For character meals at the Castle, Cinderella is always present, but the other princesses take turns appearing. Unfortunately there is no way to know in advance if a specific princess will be there. You can ask Guest Services at the park to call the "character hotline" to see where a character is, but this won't help you with your dining reservation.

    I have had character meals at Cinderella Castle at least half a dozen times. I cannot recall ever having seen Ariel there. On the other hand, I do believe that we saw Ariel at the princess breakfast at the Akershus in Epcot. But again, there's no way to guarantee in advance if a specific princess would be there on a specific day. Bear in mind that at any character meal, Ariel would be wearing her human-form wedding attire rather than her fin.

    If you want to make sure your daughter does meet Ariel, be sure to take her to the character greeting spot called Ariel's Grotto. This is in the Magic Kingdom near the Dumbo ride. Ariel is in her sea-creature form here.  You also won't want to miss the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
