    Thanks for all the help! This is our first trip to WDW, seeing Rapunzel is a must. Should we go straight to her meet and greet when the park opens or will we have time to ride a few rides first? How early before a meet and greet begins should we be there/


    A quick heads up that Merida, the star of the upcoming Disney movie Brave, is now in the Fairytale Garden for the time being. While she is there (for how long has not been announced), Rapunzel will be over at the Adventureland Terrace.

    I would tell you that on our last trip we wanted to see Rapunzel. We were there during a very slow time of year (September), but still had to wait a good hour. And that is with going pretty much straight away to her greet area.

    My advice is that you really should go there straight away. If you are on a trip where you can get more than one day at the Magic Kingdom then leave it for the second day. You don't want the first thing you do on your first day is stand in line. But yes, you probably do want to go to that area straight away, as lines get longer and longer throughout the day.

    I hope that this helps?

    Have a magical vacation!
