Two Princess Meet And Greets Returning To Magic Kingdom

Ariel from the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom

Two long awaited Princess character meet and greet experiences are returning to Magic Kingdom in the next few weeks.

Ariel Returns To Ariel’s Grotto

Disney has confirmed that Ariel will be returning to Ariel’s Grotto in Magic Kingdom on January 22, 2023! Ariel has been one princess that has been hard to find in the parks since the return of character meet and greets. She would pop up occasionally in Princess Fairytale Hall and was available at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall for character dining, but no guarantees of seeing her for a traditional meet and greet in the parks. In just a few days she will once again be a permanent fixture once again in Walt Disney World.

Enchanted Tales With Belle

A second fan favorite experience is coming back to Magic Kingdom in a few weeks. Belle has been in both Maurice’s Cottage in Magic Kingdom and the France Pavilion in Epcot doing traditional meet and greets for some time, but one experience that guests have missed is the Enchanted Tales with Belle character experience. This experience is held in Maurice’s Cottage and retells the story of “Beauty and the Beast”, complete with magical objects and a transformation of the cottage into the Beast’s castle, ending with a meeting of Belle herself. Enchanted Tales with Belle will be returning February 19, 2023!
