    I was unable to get a FP+ for Cinderella and Rapunzel. When is the best time for standby? Early in the morning at opening or during afternoon Fantasy Parade. Or will they be available during EMH or MMVCP? Thanks! 60 days and counting!

    Hi Brandi,

    I am so glad you stopped by the Disney Moms Panel with your princess question. Meeting the princesses is always a high priority for my daughter during our Walt Disney World trip. Whether we meet them in Fairytale Hall or at a character meal at Cinderella's Royal Table or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, it never seems to get old for her (or me, for that matter).

    So, I completely understand your plight. Personally, I find that Fantasyland is always crowded first thing in the day and tends to get less crowded around "naptime" or during the afternoon stage shows and parade. You will most likely have better luck during those times. I would also recommend trying to go during the evening parade or fireworks, if Cinderella and Rapunzel are still accepting a royal audience during those times. So, it is hard to predict if those special ladies will be greeting guests. Please keep in mind that this is based on my personal experience, but crowd levels could fluctuate for any number of reasons. Character experiences during special events such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Extra Magic Hours can vary. 

    I hope you have the Best.Day.Ever!
