Where to Stay

Walt Disney World has a few Disney Resorts that will help create the perfect princess experience.

If you are sticking to a budget, consider a stay at Art of Animation. Here the Little Mermaid rooms are budget-friendly and have unique princess touches from this beloved movie. These rooms are near the Flippin’ Fins swimming pool, full of under-the-sea decorations. Know that they are located far away from both transportation and food.

For a truly magical experience, consider a stay in the Royal Rooms at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside. These rooms are decorated with princess fans in mind. Fireworks in the headboard, custom drapery and art, and unique decorations transform these rooms into a princess wonderland. What princess, young or old, wouldn’t want to fall asleep with fireworks on the headboard?

Our last option for a princess, like stay would be to visit Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. This Victorian-themed Resort will make everyone feel like royalty. The beauty chandeliers and stained glass in the entry are regal. The coloring and details throughout the Resort will make everyone at the party feel like a prince or princess.

These three Resorts at Walt Disney World are perfect for a princess-themed stay.

Prepare to Go

Before heading to Walt Disney World for your perfect princess trip, consider adding some magic. Think about what you want to wear while in the Parks. There are a lot of princess costumes that you can purchase online, but you could also consider Disney bounding. This is where you dress in the color scheme of your favorite character. This can be fun to do and a creative way to show your passion for Disney princesses.

Another fun way to prepare for your trip with princess fun is by sending a letter to your kids from a Disney princess inviting them to the Parks. This can be a magical way to add some extra pixie dust before a trip.

Finally, don’t forget those countdown calendars. There are many ways to countdown to your Walt Disney World trip. Add some princess touches as you create them.

CInderella's Royal Table _ hardest reservations _ disney world


For princesses, there are two main dining experiences that you want to book for your princess-focused trip to Walt Disney World.

Cinderella’s Royal Table will start having princesses back to meet and greet Guests again on February 28. Not only do you get to eat inside the castle, a magical experience on its own, but you will soon be able to visit with your favorite princesses throughout your meal.

We haven’t heard specifics about what princesses will join Cinderella at the castle. In the past, we have seen Ariel, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Snow White, and Aurora at times. For those princess fans, a meal at Cinderella’s Royal Table is a must-do experience.


Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is another fantastic dining option for those wanting a magical, princess dining experience. In EPCOT within the Norway Pavilion, Guests can join princesses for Storybook Dining. With beautiful archways and ceilings, this lovely castle offers another excellent princess-focused dining option for Guests.

Be Our Guests even though there aren’t princesses during meals at Be Our Guests, this can also be an excellent reservation for princess fans. The inside is like stepping into Beauty and the Beast. With a gorgeous ballroom, princess fans will feel like royalty as they have their meal.

There are so many magical princess experiences throughout Walt Disney World. We will share a few that you should focus on during your trip.

Magic Kingdom

This is the Disney Park for princess fans. There are so many fun and magical experiences for princess fans to enjoy. Start by making sure you visit the princesses at Princess Fairytale Hall. Here you can meet four different princesses. Typically you can find Cinderella and Tiana along with other princesses that rotate, such as Elena of Avatar. The hall is impressive and well-decorated.

You can also enjoy seeing Ariel at her Grotto, Belle, during the Enchanted Tales with Belle experiences, and Jasmine and Aladdin can also be seen in Adventureland. Always check the My Disney Experience app to see which princesses will be in the Magic Kingdom throughout your vacation.

Don’t miss out on the Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom as a princess fan. Some so many princesses make an appearance during this parade. It is a great way to see a lot of princesses at once.


It might surprise some to learn that you can find a lot of princesses throughout the World Showcase. Not only is EPCOT the only place to meet Elsa and Anna. Take time to walk around the countries and see all the princesses that greet Guests.

Also, in EPCOT, take the time to ride Frozen Ever After. This ride takes Guests through the story of Frozen. This ride is fun for the whole family, with impressive animatronics, songs, and even some excitement.

EPCOT is a beautiful place to see so many princesses in a unique, magical atmosphere.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has two shows not to miss for princess fans. Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage bring the story of Belle and her beast to the stage in a beautiful retelling of this story. For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along is a hilarious retelling of the Frozen story; Guests can sing along with their favorite songs.

If you have a princess fan at your travel party, we hope these suggestions will help you plan a magical, princess-filled trip to Walt Disney World.
