    We are taking our little girl for her birthday April 28 - May 5. Her favorites are Areil and anything "Tangled" - could you recommend some things to do that would ensure that we got to see these characters? We just can't wait to surprise her!

    Hi there Crystal!

    There are a few ways to be able to see both Ariel and Rapunzel. In the Magic Kingdom, Ariel can be found at the Adventureland Veranda Gazebo, where she's scheduled for regular meet and greets. In Disney's Hollywood Studios you can go under the sea with Ariel in the Voyage of the Little Mermaid attraction. You may also book a princess character dining experience! Ariel has been known to make an appearance at the Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot.

    Rapunzel has her own meet and greet area to the right side of Cinderella's Castle. The Rapunzel experience at the Magic Kingdom offers personal interaction and involves some story time and drawing (Rapunzel's favorite pastime)! When you arrive at the Magic Kingdom in the morning check the times guide of when the first meet and greet is. When we were there in early December, the first experience started at 10am. You will want to be one of the first in line for the interactive experience because, the first 10 -20 children get a little extra time with Rapunzel and Flynn. I won't spoil the surprise but have your camera ready!

    All of this information is subject to change so when you arrive at the parks, make sure to pick up a Times Guide where you will find all the character meet and greets scheduled for the day. If you don't see Ariel or Rapunzel, ask a cast member at Guest Services to call the "Character Hotline" to find out where you can find them. I hope you and your family have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have more questions, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
