    My 5 year old daughter is most excited about meeting Aerial. I don't see any character dining events that include her, so how can i guarantee that we see her?? It's a MUST!

    Hi Amy! My little princess loves Ariel too! Ariel was actually my son's favorite princess when he was three and we loved visiting her in Ariel's Grotto, which was in the Magic Kingdom. When the Fantasyland expansion began and Ariel's Grotto closed, I did a massive search to see where my kids could meet this raven haired princess.

    Luckily you have several options!

    Ariel makes appearances with Prince Eric in the Magic Kingdom in the Adventureland section of the park. Make sure to pick up a Times Guide when you arrive to get the scoop on exactly when and where Ariel will be throughout the day.

    I also highly recommend the Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus in Epcot. This character breakfast features Belle and several of her princess friends, including Ariel, Cinderella and Aurora. Characters are subject to change, so you should call ahead to verify which princesses will be there during your visit.

    In Hollywood Studios your little princess will love the Voyage of Little Mermaid show, where Ariel is live on stage with Sebastian, Flounder and Prince Eric. You can also catch Ariel during the Fantasmic! show at Hollywood Studios.

    Other must sees for Ariel fans include the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade at the Magic Kingdom, where your little one may even catch a wave from Ariel and Mickey's PhilharMagic, where Ariel sings "Part of Your World."

    I hope you have a magical visit to Walt Disney World!
