    We have a vacation planned in September, my 3 year old is a fan of Sofia, and I found out she was replaced with Fancy Nancy. Is there anywhere Sofia will be in the park in September?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda!

    I’m in total agreement with your three-year-old – Sofia is awesome! Her kindness, sense of adventure, loyalty to her family, and love of books are all traits I adore, and I’ll admit it: I LOVE it when Sofia encounters other Princesses on her journeys! Plus, those songs are super catchy. (Sing it with me: “we’re having a royal sleepover, a royal SLEEP-OVER!”)

    It’s true that Sofia is not currently meeting Guests at Walt Disney World Resort. She has returned to Enchancia to help her family rule and to continue her adventures. I’m not sure if she has a return visit planned, but I know you’re not the only Sofia fans hoping that there’s some kind of secret book or painting that proves to be a portal between The Secret Library and Walt Disney World. My best advice is to read the Disney Parks Blog as you count down to your visit, as that’s where announcements about characters and other experiences are shared.

    Amanda, I know my Sofia fans are also Elena of Avalor fans, so I’m hoping your little one might enjoy a special visit with Elena, who meets Guests at Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom Park. Elena and Sofia are friends, and I know Elena likes to talk about their adventures together. Other Disney Junior friends meet in the Animation Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and also at the Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine breakfast at Hollywood & Vine

    You can also use your My Disney Experience mobile app to locate characters in the theme parks. From the app’s home screen, tap the map, and then change the top drop-down menu to “Characters.” Then, as you navigate the map, tap the Mickey head icons to see who’s meeting where, and see a list of their daily times. My family loves meeting, chatting with, and taking pictures with characters at Walt Disney World, and I’m sending some pixie dusted wishes that your little one meets some of their favorite characters. I get goosebumps watching the wonder on my kiddos’ faces as the story comes alive for them, and I can’t wait for you to feel that magic in just a few months!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
