Find Disney Princesses at Disney World’s Restaurants
The easiest way to see a bunch of princesses at once is to go to a restaurant with character dining. These restaurants in the Disney parks and resorts feature princess interactions.
Cinderella’s Royal Table
The premier princess dining experience is inside Cinderella’s castle. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and even has reservations available before the park opens. That means a chance to get ahead of the crowds. Cinderella will take a photo with you and several other princesses will come to your table while you dine.
Like Cinderella’s Royal Table, Akershus has a royal theme and several Disney princesses. The Epcot restaurant is in the Norway Pavilion next to Frozen Ever After. The menu is Norwegian American and includes a salad bar with various Norwegian offerings. Akershus also opens early, so you can book an early morning reservation to get a head start on crowds.
Trattoria Al Forno
The Bon Voyage Adventure breakfast at this Boardwalk Inn restaurant features Ariel and Rapunzel as well as an inspired menu.
1900 Park Fare
The characters change throughout the day, but the dinner buffet features Cinderella and other characters from the film.
The Storybook Dinner at Artist’s point is a themed evening filled with woodsy decor, themed dishes and desserts, and Snow White. You can even get a photo with the Evil Queen.
The Photo Locations
Photopass locations are set up all over the parks so you can get a special picture with your favorite princess. If you get the Memory Maker package, your Photopass photos are unlimited
In Fantasyland, the Princess Fantasy Faire has two meet and greet opportunities Cinderella and Elena are one option. The other is Rapunzel and Tiana. Each of these opportunities has Fastpass. Merida from Brave is set up for photos on the right side of the castle between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. Belle greets guests at Enchanted Tales with Belle, and Ariel is sometimes found near her ride.
Epcot has a princess photo location in virtually every World Showcase pavilion by origin. Elsa and Anna are in their Norway summer house. Mulan is in a tranquil Chinese garden; Snow White has a wishing well just outside of Germany. Jasmine is in Morocco, and Belle and Aurora are in France.
Sofia the First is the only Disney princess you will find in Hollywood Studios for meet and greets. She is in the Disney Junior section of the Animated Courtyard. However, the park does have shows for Frozen, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast.
You can find a host of characters on Discovery Island. Among them is Pocahontas, who has a meet and greet location on the way to the bridge that leads to Pandora.
