    We will be visiting WDW in Sept, my daughter really wants to dine with Ariel, however, I did not see her listed as part of any of the character meals. We have breakfast at Cinderella's castle & the Princesses lunch at Akershus. Is she part of either on

    Ariel will sometimes greet diners at the Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot’s Norway pavilion. She circulates the dining room with the other princesses. However at this location Ariel is in human form often wearing a blue gown perfectly befitting a princess. However there is no guarantee which princesses appear each day.

    In the Magic Kingdom, venture to Fantasyland to meet Ariel in mermaid form. Your daughter will have a wonderful time meeting this princess  who appears daily at Ariel’s Grotto. You will find the times that Ariel is available on the Magic Kingdom’s Times Guide which will be near the park maps as you enter the park.

    I suggest arriving here early as even in the off-season we have had  lengthy waits to meet Ariel. Seeing my toddler son blush when Ariel said “scoot up near me” was more than worth the wait.

    Don’t forget to ask her about finding dinglehoppers.  Chatting with Ariel about her under the sea adventures is half the fun!
