Princesses have played an important role in bringing to life the magic of Walt Disney Entertainment for many years. They are, after all, among some of our most beloved Disney heroines and the role models that so many young girls grow up being inspired by. So, naturally, Disney Princesses are very integral to the overall Disney Experience at Parks and Resorts worldwide. And it’s only to be expected that so many folks would have their hearts set on getting a Princess fix in some way during an upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. Fortunately, there are so many awesome opportunities for doing just that. From classic Meet and Greets to spotting more underrated favorites from afar, here are the many ways to get your Princess fix at Walt Disney World.

Character Meet and Greets
Perhaps one of the most obvious ways to get your Disney Princess fixing is by heading to specific Character Meet and Greet locations throughout the various Parks. This lets you see your favorites and even get a little one-on-one time for photographs and autograph signings.
At Magic Kingdom Park, on location at Princess Fairytale Hall, Guests can currently meet with Cinderella and Tiana. Merida is onsite at the Fairytale Garden. And you will find Ariel at her Grotto.
In EPCOT, the Princess scene is more specific to their representative nationalities within the World Showcase. For instance, you will find Snow White in the Germany Pavilion, Anna and Elsa on location at their Royal Sommerhus in the Norway Pavilion, Mulan in the China Pavilion, and Belle in the France Pavilion. Do take note that Princess availability is subject to change, and some Princesses who currently do not have fixed locations for greeting Guests, like Rapunzel and Aurora, may make surprise visits.

Second to walk-up Character Meet and Greet locations, Guests hungering for a Princess fixing may find fulfillment at one of several Character Dining engagements featuring Princesses specifically. On location of the Norway Pavilion in EPCOT, for instance, you will find Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, which features Princess Storybook Dining. Meals here generally feature three to five Disney Princesses at a time. Attending Princesses may change throughout the day, but you will generally find Ariel, Jasmine, Snow White, and Belle appearing.
Over at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, you will find the Snow White-themed dinnertime engagement known as Storybook Dining at Artist Point. And as you’d expect, Snow White herself is onsite, making personal appearances at each table along with other characters from the 1937 animated film classic.
Cinderella’s Royal Table, based within the one and only Cinderella Castle gracing Magic Kingdom Park, has recently welcomed back all of the Princesses that previously made appearances on location here. Cinderella herself greets diners downstairs as they come in (or exit) while Snow White, Rapunzel, Ariel, and Aurora make their rounds through the dining room.

Stage Show Productions
Some of your favorite Disney Princesses have roles in various ongoing stage attractions and show performances. Over at Hollywood, for instance, you can enjoy that beloved interactive theater experience known as For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. Here you get to see Anna and Elsa as well as other favored friends from the Frozen film franchise.
Another premium Princess opportunity for Guests visiting Hollywood Studios is to take in a condensed retelling of that “tale as old as time” in the form of Beauty and the Beast—Live on Stage. Presentations are just 30 minutes long, and it is your chance to see Belle along with all your other favorites from the Disney classic film Beauty and the Beast!
On the stage in front of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park, Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire performances occur daily at 10:10 a.m., 11:15 a.m., and 12:50 p.m. This light-hearted show features both Classic Disney Characters and newer ones alike. You’ll even spot some Princesses appearing during the act, including Tiana, Rapunzel, and Elsa.
Another performance where you get to spot Disney Princesses is that ticketed engagement known as Fantasmic! In fact, the performance even features some of those rarer Princesses you do not see as often, such as Pocahontas and Moana. You also get to see Mulan in her warrior garb, Elsa donning her Frozen 2 look, and other beloved Classics you already know and love, like Belle, Ariel, and Snow White.

Some of the themed rides throughout Disney World Parks are inspired by Walt Disney Entertainment’s most beloved Princesses. For instance, you can get your Ariel fill at Magic Kingdom Park by riding Under the Sea—Journey of the Little Mermaid. On a more subtle note, there’s also the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, loosely inspired by Cinderella. And if you ride along the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, you will even catch a glimpse of Snow White herself in the end, dancing in the house.
Over in EPCOT, a very obvious callout to Frozen is the dark water ride Frozen Ever After within the Norway Pavilion.
In addition to these existing attractions, more are just on the horizon, including a brand-new Moana-inspired attraction that will debut in EPCOT and the highly anticipated Tiana’s Bayou Adventure set to open in 2024 at Magic Kingdom Park.

Enchanted Tales with Belle
While not a ride, this is still a well-loved attraction that can be found on location at Magic Kingdom Park. Not only do you get to see Belle, but the audience gets to interact directly with her by acting out assigned roles in a wonderful tale she tells.

Festival of Fantasy Parade
One of the most obvious ways to see some of your favorite Disney Princesses at Disney World is to make it a point to catch the Festival of Fantasy Parade, occurring daily at Magic Kingdom Park. During the procession, a featured Garden of Disney Princesses float is where you will see many favorite faces from afar. While Character appearances are subject to change, on this float in particular, you can currently catch glimpses of Cinderella, Belle, Tiana, Elsa, and Anna.

There are many other alternative ways to get your Disney Princess fix aside from seeing them at the Parks in particular. For some little girls, a bit of the royal treatment and pampering offers up the perfect Disney Princess fix to the day. This often comes as a visit to the famed Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! Of course, the possibilities are endless, and it is essentially up to each Princess seeker to decide which options to pursue. Whatever way you get your Princess fix, Disney World is certainly the place to get it at.
