Do you or your kids have a favorite Disney Princess? Most Princess can be found in Disneyland, you just need to know where to look.
One of the things I love most about Disneyland is a lot of the characters wonder about the park, but some have a specific zone, where others have a specific meet-and-greet spot. So if there is a specific Princess you want to meet it is best to know where to look.
My daughter’s favorite Disney Princess is Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. She was Aurora for Halloween and loves to dress up as her on a regular basis. On one of our vacations to Disneyland, she wanted to wear her Aurora costume and hoped that she could meet her, and guess what? She did! My daughter (and I) will remember that moment for the rest of her life!
Where to meet Disney Princesses in Disneyland
Alice can be found walking along the path next to her ride, Alice in Wonderland. She is usually with the Mad Hatter and they usually start by Small World and walk the path up to the castle.
Aurora can be found by the wishing well in Snow White’s Grotto. This area is to the right of Sleeping Beauty Castle. There is a side path to the right of the castle. If you are already on the other side of the castle next to Peter Pan, look to your left and there is a small walkway leading to the wishing well.
Belle, Cinderella, and Snow White –
The Royal Hall is located in the Fantasy Faire. This is a meet-and-greet location where you can visit multiple princesses at one time. The Princesses do rotate, so make sure to check out the schedule in the front of the queue or the Disneyland App to see who is there. We have seen Ariel, Elena, Merida, and Rapunzel here as well.
Tiana likes to hang out in Frontierland exploring the Mark Twain Riverboat. There is a tiny path next to the water across from the Stage Door Cafe.
Tinkerbell and her friends can be visited in Pixie Hollow. The entrance to Pixie Hollow is a little tricky to find because if you didn’t know it was there, you might walk right by. To find her, start by facing Sleeping Beauty Castle and walk to the right, in between the Castle and Tomorrowland, and veer to the right like you are walking to Matterhorn. You’ll walk over a bridge and the entrance is directly on your right.
I would like to point out that Princesses (and fairies) are not just for girls. My son also loves to meet the princesses as well!
If Queens are more your style, you can find them in Disneyland too!
The Evil Queen –
The Evil Queen can be spotted walking on the path between Storybook Land Canal Boats and Dumbo. Just a word of caution, if your little one is meeting the Evil Queen just know she stays in character and is not all that friendly (but she’s not supposed to be). So just make sure your little ones understand this. As you can see in this picture my daughter was confused!
Side note: The Fairy Godmother likes to hang out here as well!
Queen Elsa & Princess Anna –
Queen Elsa and her sister, Princess Anna are at a meet-and-greet in California Adventure Park. They can be found inside the Animation Building at Anna & Elsa’s Royal Welcome.
If there is a particular princess you are looking for and can’t find, always ask a cast member. They are very helpful in pointing you in the right direction.
And last but not least, sometimes our favorite Princess meetings are completely random and they show up in the most unexpected places. For example, my daughter spotted Aurora at the entrance gate when you first walk into Disneyland park. There was no line to meet her and my daughter was so excited for the rest of the day.
Keep your eyes open, you never know where your princess will be!
