You’re Invited to ‘A Princess Royal Reception’ this October at Disney Springs

My favorite Disney Princess has always been Cinderella, and one of my favorite lines is “a dream is a wish your heart makes.” If you’ve ever dreamed of meeting a Disney Princess during a visit to World of Disney at Disney Springs, that wish is about to come true during a one-month, limited-time offering set to debut on Saturday, October 1, 2016.

With surprise appearances each day, you could meet Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Tiana or another visiting princess – there are no set times for specific characters, but you’re always sure to receive a royal reception.

I had the chance to talk to Entertainment Show Director Tom Vazzana who shared the background story of the experience: “Cinderella had a wish for her and her fellow royal princesses to have a place to meet new friends. The Fairy Godmother was able to grant her this wish, and now, tucked away in a magical corner of World of Disney is a location befitting Cinderella’s request. A magical ‘royal hall’ was created complete with tapestries and images inspired by classic fairytales.”

With a Disney PhotoPass photographer on hand to capture each interaction, these magical moments will be available for guests to purchase or download as part of their Memory Maker product purchase.

Interested in a royal reception of your own? Visit World of Disney between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. daily from October 1 – November 1, 2016. Once you check in, a cast member will share the approximate wait time and return instructions; when it’s time for you to return to the queue, you’ll be moments away from meeting a Disney Princess.

Do you plan to make your way to Disney Springs this October for this special engagement? Share in the comments below – I’d love to know!


  • Just wondering if you have to have the Memory Maker for the Meet and Greet. We are traveling to Orlando the last week in October and I would love for my daughter to be able to meet a princess again.

  • Can it be done in the same day? Like you go there in the morning and return in the afternoon? How long do you have to wait normally to return and see the princess? I’m planning of going today, so hopefully you’re seeing this…??

  • We will be there!!! My kids and I love Disney princesses!!!

  • This is awesome news. My family and I will be in Orlando from October 28 to 30. We are going to MNSSHP but we will be sure to catch meeting the princesses at Disney Springs.

  • We are so excited for this! eventhough I have two boys. My 4 year old is super excited to see Cinderella, we will also be sharing the love with our readers! See you all next week! So glad we live locally to experience all of the magic.

  • We will be getting there tomorrow. My daughter would love this

  • This is amazing! I am so happy that my family gets the opportunity to meet a Disney Princess outside the parks and in beautiful Disney Springs of all places! We will be there for the “Princess Royal Reception” this Sunday October 2nd!! My daughter will love it! Thanks Disney for always trying new and innovative ideas!

  • It looks like an awesome experience, but too bad for me, because I won’t be back to WDW(I just came back from my most recent trip two months ago and my next trip won’t be until May) for this experience(first time characters have met guests outside of a theme park), and too bad I won’t get to experience it, but at least I can meet them at the parks.

  • I love this amongst some of the other enhancements Disney springs is offering. Just in time for our trip, too!
