    I have set up a reminder to meet all the characters in Epcot. Some i have a half hour apart and it says my time is overlapping. How long does it take to meet and greet the princesses?

    Good day, Julie!

    As you know, several princesses can be found greeting their loyal subjects at Epcot. I'm so glad you're planning to visit them on your upcoming trip. It's never a bad a idea to brush up on royal protocol as you plan your day.

    As you pull together your itinerary in your My Disney Experience account, you have the opportunity to "add plans." Among these plans is the option to "meet characters." While these are not formal reservations, the itinerary will show a "time overlap" warning if the princess meet and greet sessions are not set up at least one hour apart. The itinerary software is set up this way because it can take some time to walk from visiting Jasmine near Restaurant Marrakesh in the Morocco Pavilion to seeing Anna and Elsa at Royal Sommerhus in the Norway pavilion. Also, the princesses will take some time to chat with you during your visit so you certainly don't want to feel you are being rushed to get to your next royal appointment. It may take less than an hour to move from one character experience to another, but I recommend you give yourself a bit more flexibility in your itinerary. Look at the layout of World Showcase as you set up your schedule. You'll be able to visit the princesses more quickly if you travel in a logical path around World Showcase.

    Do bring your camera and autograph book with you. I'm sure you'll want to have tangible evidence of the magical day you met so many Disney princesses.

    Wishing you many wonderful memories,
