Meeting characters at Disney World is a fun addition to your Disney trip. This list will tell you where you can see and meet the Disney Princesses at Disney World.
The magic of Disney is seeing your child’s face light up when they meet their favorite Disney princess, it is one of the reasons we loved visiting Disney when the kids were young.
Meeting characters can be a great experience when visiting the Disney theme parks and we like to include them in our park days.
Guests can meet Disney princesses at the theme parks, during dining experiences, and see them in the parades.
There are also a few Disney resorts that are themed to Disney princesses. You won’t necessarily meet them at the resorts but you can stay like a princess in the princess themed hotel room.
If you have a specific princess you want to meet at the Walt Disney World resort be sure to visit the theme park that offers meetings.
Disney Princesses at Disney World Theme Parks
All of the four theme parks have an opportunity to see a Disney Princess or meet them.
Disney Princesses at the Magic Kingdom
There are a few ways you can see and meet princesses at the Magic Kingdom. There are live shows and entertainment, rides, and character meetings.
Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade runs daily in the afternoon and has many Disney princesses like Cinderella, Rapunzel, Tiana, and Sleeping Beauty. Check My Disney Experience app for updated times.
The parades are a fun way to see many of the characters at Magic Kingdom. Often they will wave to the kids or walk over to say hello. My kids always had a great time watching the parades when they were young.
Rapunzel and Tiana are also part of the Let the Magic Begin show that is in front of Magic Kingdom at park opening.
If you are looking for traditional meet and greets guests can meet Ariel at her Grotto, Meet Cinderella, Tiana, and a Visiting Princess at Princess Fairytale Hall, and meet Mirabel.
Princess Fairytale Hall can get long lines. There is an option to skip the line by using Genie+ for this experience.
The visiting princesses are often Elena and Rapunzel but they are subject to change. Guests can also meet Princess Jasmine and Snow White at the Magic Kingdom.
There are a few rides at the Magic Kingdom themed to Disney Princesses. They are Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (Snow White is not featured in this ride but does make an appearance.), and Enchanted Tales with Belle.
In summer of 2024 guests will be able to ride Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.
Guests can also walk through Cinderella’s Castle tunnel to see the mural. You can not go inside Cinderella’s castle.

Disney Princesses at Epcot
Epcot has a surprising number of meet and greets for Disney Princesses. Some may say that Epcot is not for kids but we have always had a great time.
The kids like the rides as well as walking around and exploring World Showcase. World Showcase has a lot to see and do. I share our full experience in this post: Epcot with Kids: Tips for Planning a Day at Epcot for Families
Guests at Epcot can meet Anna and Elsa, Belle, Princess Aurora, Princess Jasmine, and Snow White. Moana has recently been added as a meet and greet to Epcot.
There is also a princess character meal at Epcot.
One of the most popular attractions at Epcot is Frozen Ever After which features Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and Sven. This is a boat ride attraction that is one of my favorites. It is fun for all ages!
Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along is a retelling of the story that focuses on the songs. Guests can watch and sing-along to the beloved classics.
Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana is the newest addition to Epcot. This features water play areas, where guests can get as soaked as they want.
Disney Princesses at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Disney’s Hollywood Studios does not currently have any princess meet and greets but it does have two live stage shows.
Guests can watch Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage as well as For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration.
During these shows you will see incredible cast members take the stage to transform into your favorite princesses.
I was not sure how I was going to feel about hundreds of kids singing “Let it Go” at the top of their lungs but I ended up loving the show.
It is so much fun. The narrators are so funny and entertaining. I think it is worth seeing during your visit to Hollywood Studios.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Disney’s Animal Kingdom has Moana and Pocahontas meet and greets. There are also river cruise floats that you can see Pocahontas throughout the day. All times are on the My Disney Experience App.
Disney Princesses at Character Dining at Disney World
Disney adds new dining experiences often but I try to keep this list updated. Disney Princess dining is very popular.
Make dining reservations as soon as you can. They open up 60 days before your visit. If you are staying on-site you can make reservations 60 days from the day of arrival for the entire trip.
If you plan your dining later during your trip you will have a better chance of securing a reservation.
Character dining is very expensive and expect to pay $35.00 and up for kids 3-9, and $59.00 and up for anyone 10 and up. If you are visiting with older kids these dining experiences can really add up.
Princess dining can be found at the theme parks and at the resorts. The specific princess are always subject to change.
- Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Epcot (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner)
- Cinderella’s Royal Table, Magic Kingdom (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner)
- Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, (Dinner)
Disney Resorts that Feature Disney Princesses
Some of the Disney World Resorts feature Disney Princesses in subtle and not so subtle ways.
At Art of Animation you can stay in The Little Mermaid rooms. They are fully themed to the Little Mermaid. The entire area of the resort is themed to the Little Mermaid with giant Ursula and King Triton statues. It is a great choice if you have an Ariel fan.
Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort recently updated rooms to have a Moana theme. Guests staying at Port Orleans Riverside can book a Royal Room that has subtle nods to Princesses.
Rides at Disney World that Feature Disney Princesses
Some of the theme parks have rides where you can see princesses.
At Magic Kingdom there is Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, Enchanted Tales with Belle, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Opening summer 2024: Tiana’s Bayou Adventure
At Epcot there is Frozen Ever After and Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana.
At Hollywood Studios you can see the two live shows but no ride or attractions.
At Animal Kingdom they do not have any rides or attractions featuring Disney princesses.
Rules for Meeting Disney Princesses at Disney World
There are a few things you should know when meeting Disney Princesses at Disney World.
First expect long wait times and try to be patient. With little ones excited to meet their favorite princess this can be difficult. Prepare by packing coloring books or play Heads Up on your phone.
When it is your turn you will have the Disney Princesses full attention. They will sign autographs and take lots of photos. The photo pass cast member will take photos with your phone or camera if you ask.
Be courteous and considerate of the cast member princesses. They are doing their best to make it an awesome experience.
