Disney Princesses will be making appearances each day between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. beginning October 1 and running throughNovember 1, 2016. You won’t know in advance, though, which Disney Princess is visiting the shop. You could find anyone from Princess Cinderella to Princess Tiana dropping in.








With a Disney PhotoPass photographer on hand to capture each interaction, these magical moments will be available for guests to purchase or download as part of their Memory Maker product purchase.


When you make your way to World of Disney you will check in with a cast member, and they will share the approximate wait time and return instructions with you.Then when it’s time for you to return to the queue, you’ll be moments away from meeting a Disney Princess.

    Inside the store (they’re currently on a Princesss girl-power promotion), it could work.
    Outside, in the small-town Springs setting, not so much. Characters don’t usually do as well outside the context of the parks.

    As much as I really love this idea, I dont think its fair that anyone (Who isnt a park guest) could go and meet princesses. It expensive enough to go to Disney that I want as many perks as possible! 🙂

    I think it’s a wonderful idea. My family was able to come to Disney through my wife’s work. We would not of been able to come otherwise. Meeting the princesses (especially Ariel) was the only thing my daughter really wanted to do. Being able to meet princesses for those that can’t necessarily afford to go into Disney to do so to me is an amazing opportunity.

    Nat, character meet & greet was already not restricted to paying park guests, and personally, I think it’s a great option. There’s so much that you can ONLY do in the parks, and meet & greets can take up SO much time, it’s nice to have this option on a non-park day besides resort character meals.
