Learn all about the Disney Princesses

If you have a young daughter and are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World resort, chances are you will be trying to track down a few Disney princesses during your time in Central Florida. Luckily for you, there are many chances for meet-and-greets, opportunities to dine with the princesses and even two places on property for you to give your very own little princess the royal treatment with princess makeovers. To experience any of these, however, you and your family will need theme park tickets in order for you to have access to all of the Disney princesses and other characters and attractions inside the four parks. To get these tickets at a discounted price, don’t go anywhere – here at DWTickets.com, we offer discounted theme park tickets to all of the top attractions in Orlando, from Disney to Universal, Sea World and many more.

Once you arrive in Central Florida, you have many options to get your Disney princess fill. One of the most popular ways to interact with these princesses is through character dining. At Cinderella’s Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom Park, you will dine right in Cinderella Castle’s private dining hall amongst the Disney Royal Family at either the Once Upon a Time Breakfast or the Fairytale Lunch, while this restaurant also hosts a dinner each evening that includes a welcome fit for royalty and a special appearance by the Fairy Godmother. Another option for Disney princess dining is in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion. At the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Disney Princesses join you in a Norwegian castle for a breakfast that is full of smiles and good, family-style American food. This may not be nearly as popular as Cinderella’s Royal Table, but with appearances from many princesses, this is a great way to start off any family’s day.

Once you have hit up a meal with the princesses, you can also find them in the parks as well. The Magic Kingdom Park is the best for princess spotting, as you will find them in the daily parades and frequently around the park for meet-and-greets (try Story Time with Belle and Mickey’s Toontown Fair Hall of Fame). Also at the Magic Kingdom Park, on select days until June 4, 2008, guests will have the opportunity to attend Mickey’s Pirate and Princess Party. This five-hour, special-ticket party, which runs from 7 p.m. until midnight, includes a whole host of new activities designed to bring out your inner princess or pirate! The princess festivities at this party include Disney princess meet-and-greets, where Cinderella, Jasmine, Aurora, Ariel, Snow White, Belle and more gather around the park to meet all of the future princesses in attendance, Sebastian’s Under the Sea Dance Party at Ariel’s Court in Fantasyland and the Dream Along with Mickey show in front of Cinderella Castle, where scores of Disney characters try to stop Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent from turning dreams into nightmares!

No matter what park you are going to or what characters you are in search of, you can always use certain resource inside the parks each day to help you locate exactly who you are looking for. First of all, the Times Guide or Character Location Guide located at the parks’ main entrances are your best one-stop information outlet for finding scheduled Disney princess appearances and show times. Another invaluable resource in the parks each day is the Guest Relations center. Here, a Guest Relations host/hostess can answer specific questions you have on where specific characters will be at all times of the day. While these meet-and-greets are always subject to change (and remember, characters only come out for a certain period of time before they have to go back in), they can give you the most “inside scoop” of when and where to spot your favorite character that day.

Finally, once you have met all of your favorite Disney princesses, your child may be in the spirit to turn into one of them. There are tons of merchandise shops throughout the parks that offer dress-up merchandise, but we would like to suggest that you skip that and head straight for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. This new shop has two locations at Walt Disney World, one at the Downtown Disney Marketplace and a second at the Magic Kingdom Theme Park in Cinderella Castle, and functions as a “salon” where young princesses and princes can get the royal treatment and get transformed into look-alikes of their favorite Disney characters. Packages include everything from a princess hairstyle, makeup and sash to a princess costume complete with accessories and a photo package. If you are considering a trip to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, however, reservations are highly suggested for both locations and can be made by calling (407) WDW-STYLE.
