Where to Find Disney Princesses in Epcot
Epcot is a great place to meet the Disney Princesses, if you know where to look. This handy guide will let you know where to go to find your favorite princess.
Frozen Ever After is a new ride in the Norway Pavilion in the World Showcase area of Epcot. This ride is drawing long lines so be sure to get a FastPass+ reservation, if at all possible.
Where to dine with the Disney Princesses at Epcot:
Akershus Royal Banquet hall in the Norway Pavilion in the World Showcase at Epcot offers Princess Storybook Dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Because of the restaurant's location in the park, we think lunch or dinner reservations make the most sense - leaving your morning free to explore Future World section near the front of Epcot before heading to over to the World Showcase. Three or four Disney princesses will be in the dining room at any given time; they are on a rotating schedule that is subject to change so there is no way of knowing which princesses will be available during your reservation. Belle, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Snow White, and Jasmine appear regularly. Cinderella rarely appears here as there are two other princess meals (Cinderella's Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort) that feature her. Ariel sometimes appears in her human form. Mulan and even Mary Poppins are sometimes included in the line-up. At this time, Anna and Elsa (Frozen) are not featured at this, or any other, character meal. These character meals are very popular and often fill to capacity well in advance so reservations are strongly recommended.
Where to meet the Disney Princesses at Epcot:
The Disney Princesses Meet-and-Greet experiences listed below give you the chance to have your photo taken with a Disney Princess and to get autographs from the characters. They are available at various intervals throughout the day in the World Showcase at Epcot. Remember that the princesses appear for about 30 - 40 minutes at each session so arrive early as Cast Members may cut off the line to new people when they feel it has reached the limit of who can be accommodated in the time available. The sessions are offered intermittently, beginning around 11:00AM and ending in the early evening so get an Epcot Times Guide near the park maps at the park entrance for exact times during your visit. There is no extra charge for meet-and-greet sessions - they are included with park admission
Anna and Elsa pose for photos and sign autographs at the Royal Sommerhus in the Norway Pavilion. This area opens each day at 9:00AM. FastPass+ is not available but it is open during Extra Magic Hour, which might be a good option if you are a guest of one of the official Disney World resort hotels.
Princess Storybook Dining - Norway Pavilion (extra charge): As mentioned above, there are Disney Princess character meals offered for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. Advance Reservations are strongly recommended.
