I haven't actually met any of the princesses in quite some time. I remember being quite in awe of Snow White when I was 6 though ~ she was so pretty!

During our trip last week, we met Snow White, Rapunzel, Aurora and Cinderella. I think Snow White was my favorite and just seemed the most authentic. The fast pass was great but the other line we waited and it took FOREVER and WAAAAY longer than the 15 minutes that was posted outside. Definitely worth getting fast passes for character meet and greets! :-)

That job is alot harder than it looks. Snow White as I recall, remembered the names of my sister's kids when we went back a year and a half later!

That is why Disney will always be the best in my opinion!

We took our son last year for his first birthday. We read a lot of Disney books to him at bedtime (and we let him watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse occasionally) so he is familiar with the characters. We went to Epcot the first day and got to meet Pluto. The look of amazement on our son's face was priceless. It is something I will never forget. The next day we went to MK, and did Fastpass+ for the Mickey Mouse meet and greet at Town Square. He was mesmerized again, especially when Mickey started talking. Another moment I will never forget. We leave in 11 days for his second birthday trip, and I can't wait to see his reactions this time.

Oh, you must be so excited! Tell us all about the trip when you come back and which characters you managed to see!

If any of you missed a character, WDW has a Cast Member who will forward your letter to the requested character, and you'll receive an autograph (maybe even a signed photo) in the mail. He's been doing it for years. That's how I got my son an autograph of Captain Hook!

That is pretty cool! Although, obviously doesn't make up for meeting them in real life! I would have to consider it for those very hard to find characters though and it would make a lovely present!

"Princess" tells us that at DLP due to excessive popularity causing lengthy queues Anna & Elsa meet and greets have been withdrawn for the time being :(
So at the moment she is hoping to be offered another Princess so she can do meet & greets. But with Christmas coming she hopes that Anna & Elsa will be out again.

That doesn't really even make sense :? You would think they would be pleased people would want to stand in line for such a long time. Unless they don't have the area for a long queue? And if they had space, they really could double up on the Anna & Elsa's to fit more people through the queue in a more acceptable wait time.
Hoping your Princess is able to fulfill her dream at Christmastime! What is she doing in the meantime?
