Navigating Disney World with a Purpose

By
Services for Real Estate Pros

       Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida is a huge area - covering over 40 square miles.  When families begin to plan their trips, one of the things that they don't realize is that you really do have to plan and prioritize your days so that you can get to all of the things that are important to your family.  

       In this case, I am focusing specifically on planning a Disney World trip and wanting to see the Disney Princesses.

       With two daughters, our family is well versed in all things princess.  From our very first trip to Disney World, meeting the princesses and experiencing attractions related to the princesses was a huge priority for us.  I assumed that all of the princesses and princess experiences would be found at Magic Kingdom; it seemed like the most logical fit.  However, as I have learned and experienced more throughout the Walt Disney World property, I have learned that is not quite right!

 

Experiencing the Princess Life INSIDE the Parks.

       Magic Kingdom has the iconic Cinderella Castle, many princesses to meet including Cinderella, many Princess themed attractions including Under the Sea with Ariel and Enchanted Tales with Belle.  However, all 4 parks have something amazing for any princess lover.  To see which princesses and experiences are at which parks, check out this blog post about"Planning the Best Trip for a Princess Fan" .

 

Disney Princess Fun – OUTSIDE the Parks

       In addition to finding the princesses in the parks, there are also many opportunities to experience princess life outside the parks.  

1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian

This restaurant offers a “Happily Ever After Dinner” hosted by Cinderella and Prince Charming. There is also the Perfectly Princess Tea Party in the Garden View Tea Room also at the Grand Floridian hosted by Aurora or another princess.

 Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at the Boardwalk Resort

Trattoria al Forno hosts a character breakfast with Ariel and Prince Eric and Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder.  This was a great breakfast.  The food was good and there were so many cute touches, like the pastries served in a frying pan.Bon Voyage Dinner

Storybook Dining at Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge.

This is the newest Princess dining experience. Snow White, Grumpy and Dopey are there as well as the Wicked Queen.  The menu is very clever with references to the Snow White story.  This is absolutely one of our favorite character meals EVER.  The ambience is gorgeous, the food was delicious and the character interactions were excellent.  To learn more about our experience at Storybook Dining – check out my review of our Storybook Dining experience by CLICKING HERE! 

Lastly, Port Orleans – Riverside resort has princess themed Royal Room 

This room has special princess touches and references throughout the room.

Note: All of the dining reservations mentioned above you need to book 180 days in advance of your trip. Also, the price point of the dining discussed in this post is“$$$-$$$$, which is Disney speak for starting at $35.00 and potentially heading over $60 per adult depending on any additions.  Like alcohol. Not that you will need it.
