For many, meeting a Disney Princess in person is a dream come true.

Disney Princesses Across the Parks

Disney princesses can be found across all 4 of the Walt Disney World parks. The easiest way to find princesses in all parks is by using the My Disney Experience app. Here you can find specific times for each princess and where they will be meeting.

To access this, simply click on the My Disney Experience app, tap the location button at the bottom, use the drop-down menu at the top to select characters, and filter to the park you will be entering. You can also use the app to give you directions to their meeting spots. Some Princesses are also available with Lightning Lane, which can be booked through the app.

Dining with Princesses

There are a couple of options to meet princesses while dining. These include Akershus at the Norway Pavilion in EPCOT, Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom, and Storybook Dining at Artist Point in Wilderness Lodge. At Akershus, you may meet Ariel, Snow White, Aurora, Tiana, and Belle. At Cinderella’s Royal Table, you may meet Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, Aurora, and Snow White. At Storybook Dining you may meet Snow White. These dining reservations tend to be popular, and characters are subject to availability. If you are interested in meeting princesses while dining, be sure to make a reservation up to 60 days before your trip.

Tips for Meeting Disney Princesses

The princesses are very popular. If you are looking to meet a princess that has listed meeting times, you’ll want to get in line a bit early. These lines tend to get long, and sometimes cast members can cap the number of people. Know that if a princess must take a moment, they will usually be right back. Any change in princess availability will be communicated by cast members.

When you meet them, be yourself and have fun! You can even Disney bound as your favorite princess, or children under 14 can wear their favorite princess dress, adding an extra layer of enchantment to your magical encounter.

Autograph Books

If you have an autograph book, be sure to bring it with you to all meetings. Princesses will happily sign it! These can also be purchased at various locations around the parks along with pens.

Adding Magic to Your Princess Encounters

Consider purchasing a Memory Maker package to capture photos of all of your princess encounters. Most of the meet and greets have a PhotoPass cast member ready to capture stunning pictures. Some locations even feature a PhotoPass box or mirror that cast members will direct you to for picture-perfect moments.
