Recently I took my daughter on her FIRST trip ever! And it happened to be to the happiest place on earth. Yep, you guessed it – We went to Disney World!! Talk about a dream come true for a four year old. It took me a year to plan and save for this trip. And I didn’t think we would ever be able to afford to come back. So I wanted to make sure my daughter made the most memories that we could in one week. A LOT of planning went in to my trip. And I talked to my daughter about what she wanted to get out of it. Her biggest thing was she wanted to meet EVERY princess. WOW! That’s not a tall order or anything. Super simple. Of course I promised her we would and played it off like it would be easy. No big deal. And then I put Frozen in the DVD player and ran to the computer to look for some help.
Meeting every princess while at Disney is completely possible. It just takes planning. And lots of it! In this series of articles I will let you know how we met EVERY princess and even some of them multiple times! This was only my second time going to Disney and the last time I had been there was 20 years a go so I felt like a first timer. I didn’t know one thing about Disney World. So I turned to a travel agent. And I’m glad I did. She was amazing! I used Stephanie Madrigal with Mickey Travel. I highly suggest her to anyone who is going to Disney. She was a wealth of information before my trip and during my trip.
The first tip I have for people who would like to meet the princess is book a character meal! While these character meals can be a tad expensive it is the absolute easiest way to get time with each princess. We booked several character meals.
On our first day in Disney I booked a breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall which is located in Epcot at the Norway pavilion. It was a little pricey but for me it was worth it. My daughter was extremely excited. I had no problem getting her out of bed at 6 am to get ready. When you first arrive at Akershus you will check in at a podium outside the restaurant. Then there will be a short wait. I believe we waited no more than 10 minutes. They will announce your party and escort you into the hall where Princess Belle will be waiting for you. You will be able to have a few photos taken with Princess Belle and your party. Since it was just my daughter and myself I left her take all the pictures by herself. She was the one who really wanted to meet Belle. I just wanted some food!
