    We will be taking 2 two girls to Disney for the first time in May & staying at the Disney Land resort. Is the 8 am time for the Ana and Elsa royal welcome just the start time & we wait in line until its our turn to meet the princess's?

    Hello Monque. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I hope you're having a magical week.

    Anna and Elsa's Royal Welcome begins promptly at 8am in the Animation Academy at California Adventure. Because of their popularity, the line can be long at times to see the Arendelle royal sisters. Based on the arrival date you listed, expect crowd levels to be higher during Memorial Day Weekend as well. 

    Since you'll be staying onsite at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, I suggest taking full advantage of the Extra Magic Hour. On Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, California Adventure opens an hour early for Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels and Guests with Parkhoppers of 3+ days. Go early into California Adventure during those days and be inside the park before it opens to the general public. That way, you'll be ready to line up to meet Anna and Elsa right when it opens at 8am. 

    Also, don't forget to check out the new stage musical "Frozen - Live at the Hyperion" which opens on May 27, 2016! 

    I hope this information is helpful for you as you plan your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, Monque. Please visit me on the Panel if you have further questions.

    See ya real soon,

I am a wife and mother to 2 children, a 14 year old daughter and 9 year old son. I have always enjoyed going to Disneyland Resort as a child and now that I am a mother, I love watching my children experience Disneyland Resort through their eyes. It is a true delight seeing my daughter wear a ball gown walking side by side with Cinderella or my son jumping gleefully after he defeated Darth Maul in a light saber duel! Learn More About Kiki
