    I will be in WDW for my daughter's 4th birthday at the beginning of August 2019. Rapunzel is one of her favorite princesses. Will the picture op with the lanterns at Rapunzel's Tower still be available? It would be a perfect birthday gift for her!

    Hi, Nicole, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I've got a dream to help you make a magical birthday memory for your little princess, so let's get planning!

    Rapunzel is one of my favorite Disney princesses, too. She's often inspired me to follow my dreams - including my dream of helping Guests as a member of the Disney Parks Moms Panel. So I guess you could say I have Rapunzel to thank for being here!

    The iconic scene between Rapunzel and Flynn Rider among the floating lanterns inspired an amazing Disney PhotoPass experience that brings the scene to life for Magic Kingdom Guests. It's been so popular that shortly after announcing it, Disney noted that the photo opportunity would be extended until further notice, so I feel confident that it will be around for a while. I'd check the Disney Parks Blog from time to time for any updates.

    Nicole, I know Rapunzel would love to greet your little one in person! When you're in the Magic Kingdom, be sure to visit Princess Fairytale Hall to see Rapunzel along with one of her royal friends. (Mom Tip: You can use a FastPass+ selection for this attraction to cut down on your wait time.)

    You may also get to see Rapunzel during the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno at Disney's BoardWalk. The last time I was there, Rapunzel was attending to some royal duties and was unable to attend, but we did see Flynn Rider, Prince Eric, and Ariel.

    I hope this helps you make your little dreamer's day extra special, Nicole. Please come see us again if you have any other questions!

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
