For most people, going to Disney World is a dream come true. Even though my family lives just over 3 hours from the most magical place on earth, it’s not a place we get to visit often. So, like us, it’s normal to want to make the most out of every visit. If a Disney World Princess Meet and Greet is one of your must-dos while at the parks, make it a memorable moment with these tips!

Who is Your Favorite Disney Princess?

Before you go and try to make the most of a Disney Princess Meet and Greet, it’s important to know who your favorite princess is. While you may want to visit them all, it’s better to focus on your absolute favorite to ensure there’s no disappointment.

Do you know how many Disney Princesses there are? It would take all day hopping from park to park, to meet them all. And the meet and greets are only part of the pixie dust to be experienced at Disney World. That’s why it’s better to focus on the princess you really want to meet and make it happen.

So who’s your favorite Disney Princess? Is it Jasmine? Or maybe Belle? Take some time to think about this!

Where to Find Princesses in Disney World

Another important part of making the most of a Disney Princess Meet and Greet is knowing where in Disney World the princesses actually hang out. If you know which princess you just have to meet and which park she’ll be located at, there’s no doubt the magical moment will happen.

Ariel: Ariel likes to splash her tail in Magic Kingdom at her Grotto and in Fantasyland.

Merida: Merida hangs out in Magic Kingdom at Fairytale Gardens and Fantasyland.

Snow White: You can find Snow White avoiding evil queens at Town Square in Magic Kingdom, or in Germany, Epcot. 

Cinderella: She’s a popular one, but you can easily find her throughout Disney World and especially in Magic Kingdom. That is where her castle is, after all.

  • Cinderella’s Royal Table – You can meet Cinderella before you dine (be sure to make a reservation).
  • Fantasyland 
  • Princess Fairytale Hall: Here you get to meet Cinderella and Princess Elena. 
  • 1900 Park Fare Dinner, Grand Floridian Hotel and Spa.

Rapunzel: Rapunzel likes to let down her hair at Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom.

Anna & Elsa: Anna and Elsa keep it cool at the Royal Sommerhus in Norway, Epcot.

Belle: Princess Belle likes to read quietly in France, Epcot.

Aurora: Aurora can be found at the back gate of France, Epcot. 

Pocahontas: Pocahontas enjoys the animal companions at Character Landing in Animal Kingdom.

Mulan: Mulan is large and in charge in China, Epcot. 

Jasmine: Jasmine can be found flying magic carpets in Morocco, Epcot.

Sofia: Disney Junior’s Princess Sofia can be met at the Animation Courtyard in Hollywood Studios.

Tiana: Tiana likes to cook up her famous gumbo at Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom.

Now that you know where the princesses are located throughout the parks, you need to know how you can make the most of these Disney Princess Meet and Greets!

Prepare for a Disney Princess Meet and Greet

  • Have your pen and paper, or autograph book, ready! If you’d like an autograph, it’s best to have everything out and ready to go.

  • Have your camera out. Again, a picture can go faster when you have your camera ready. And this is a photo opp you don’t want to miss!
  • Take advantage of the PhotoPass photographers. They’re there to preserve the moment and make your memory last. Plus, the PhotoPass photographers help take the pressure off of you and make the experience more enjoyable.
  • Know what you want to say to the Princess. You only get a short period of time with her, so practice what you will say. If your kids are the ones excited for the meet and greet, keep in mind that they may get shy when they actually meet their favorite princess. In this case, it’s a good idea to know what they wanted to say because you might have to say it for them.

Which Meet and Greets Can You Use a FastPass+ at?

  • Epcot Character Spot (Mickey, Minnie and friends).
  • Princess Fairytale Hall (Magic Kingdom) – There are actually two separate meet and greets here (Cinderella and Elena, or Rapunzel and Tiana), which means you need to pay attention to which princess you’re meeting. 
  • Little Mermaid in her Grotto (Magic Kingdom).

As you plan your magical day at Disney World, I hope these Princess Meet and Greet tips help you create the best experience possible. There’s so much pixie dust to fit into a single day, so prepare yourself for all the memory-making moments!
