A Guide to Princesses at Disney World and Disneyland

A big draw of the Disney parks for many are the Disney Princesses. Here are all the places you can see the Princesses or have a Princess based experience. From what hotel to stay at to where to meet them I have all the royal details for you. 

** A note about character meet and greets. They are always subject to change. That could mean that one day there is no meet and greet at a certain location, that a time change was made, or that for what ever reason a different character is meeting that day. For the most up to date information keep your My Disney Experience app or your times guides handy and check the character meet screen as you start you day. **
