Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- My daughter loves the male characters from the Disney movies (Prince Eric, the Beast, etc.) just as much as the princesses. Are they ever available to meet like the princesses at Disney World? She would love to meet them!

- Hello Amy!
My family loves a good character hunt at Walt Disney World. And with 5 girls, it is safe to say they love their Disney Heroes and Princes. There are some dashing lead male characters to be found currently, but characters are always subject to change.
You can meet Aladdin and Jasmine at the Magic Kingdom in Adventureland and in Morocco at Epcot. One of my favorite Meet and Greets is with Gaston in New Fantasyland outside of Gaston's Tavern. He is rather infatuated with himself, but why wouldn't he be? There's no one in town half as manly. I'll be honest; he can make a girl swoon. You can also catch Naveen in the Magic Kingdom in Liberty Square behind The Christmas Shoppe. The Beast can usually be found in his castle for dinner reservations only at the Be Our Guest restaurant.
It is usually easier to find a Disney Princess with her Disney Prince at hard-ticketed events such as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Another good resource I use to locate characters is Kenny the Pirate's website. Don't forget to grab a Times Guide when entering the park to check on current character locations and times.
I hope this helps! Good luck, and I hope your princess gets some extra pixie dust in finding her favorite characters on your Walt Disney World vacation!
