    Hi! This is our first time at Disney & my daughter is 4 (she LOVES princesses)! Since we only have a short stay, should we just spend our time at MK or is it worth going to Epcot to see Elsa & Anna? We just want to maximize our time! Thanks!

    Hi Sara,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I have a princess-lover too, so I'm delighted to share some ideas for making your visit to Walt Disney World an enchanting one.

    You’re right that Magic Kingdom Park is an absolute dream for princess-loving Guests. If you can arrive before the official opening time, you can catch the Let the Magic Begin welcome show just prior to park opening in front of Cinderella Castle. Your daughter will love seeing so many of her favorite royal characters on the castle stage! There’s also lots of princess magic in the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and in the Happily Ever After fireworks spectacular. Be sure to pick up a Times Guide when you arrive so you can find all her favorite princesses in their meeting spots throughout the park. My tips for meeting characters: have fun with them, ask lots of questions, and don’t forget to try a couple of different poses for your photos.

    Sara, I think going to Epcot to meet Anna and Elsa in the Royal Sommerhus is a must-do for a princess-lover. Anna and Elsa love to welcome Guests to their summer home in Norway, and right next door is the wonderful Frozen Ever After attraction, which tells the story of Arendelle’s royal duo. You might find other princesses holding court in Epcot’s World Showcase, and it’s lovely to see them in their home countries. Please remember that the princesses have many royal obligations, so their availability can change. Your My Disney Experience app will provide the most current information on character greetings; just tap Characters from the top menu.

    Wishing you and your princess a magical vacation!
