Here’s How to Meet all the Disney Princesses at Epcot
Can you imagine visiting Epcot and not knowing that many of the countries in the World Showcase have meet and greets with the Disney Princesses? It’s true.
Most countries offer the opportunity to meet a Disney Princess. However, each princess meet is restricted to specific times during the day.
So it’s essential to know which princesses are available on your days at Epcot. Then you’ll want to form a plan to meet the princesses that are most important to you.
In this article, we’ll preview the different princess meet-and-greet locations at Epcot. Here is a quick list of the ones you should expect.
- Snow White
*Additionally, Donald Duck meets in the Mexico Pavilion, while Alice and Mary Poppins meet in the United Kingdom Pavilion. These three aren’t technically princesses, but I like including them when meeting World Showcase characters.

Most traditional character meets have returned to the Disney Parks. So it’s been refreshing to see these characters return and even more so to see the long lines that form for them.
Of course, these long waits are why you’ll want a good plan to meet Disney Princesses at Epcot. It will take some time, but if you plan accordingly, you should be able to meet all of them in one afternoon.
Anna and Elsa
Most of the Disney Princesses meet at Epcot in the country related to their animated film. For example, Anna and Elsa meet in the Norway Pavilion.
So we’ll start with their character meet-and-greet at the Royal Sommerhus in Epcot’s World Showcase. This is the dedicated location to meet the Frozen sisters at Walt Disney World.
Inside, you’ll find that Anna and Elsa meet side by side. So first, you’ll meet with Elsa, and then Anna.
Anna and Elsa sign autographs if you bring an autograph book.
Typically, this character location is available daily from 9:15 a.m. until 6:30 p.m.
However, you’ll want to check the My Disney Experience app for the exact times on the day of your visit. Depending on the park’s hours of operation and other factors, times can change.
Wait times for this pair of Disney Princesses usually drop after 4:00 p.m. At that point, most other princesses have retired for the day.
As for conversation, you might ask Elsa how Olaf is doing or anything about Arendelle. Of course, you probably already know that Anna loves to talk about Kristoff and Sven!

Next, we’ll stop at the China Pavilion for a visit with Mulan. Mulan is exceptionally popular.
Don’t get me wrong. All the princess meets are very popular. But a few seem to have a little extra wait occasionally. Mulan is one of them, and Epcot is the only place to meet her.
Mulan meets in the garden to the right of the replica of the Temple of Heaven. She is usually available during set times in the late morning up to mid-afternoon.
However, if you don’t see her in the garden, you might check inside the temple behind the garden. We recently saw her meeting inside this area, which was much more pleasant than standing in direct sunlight.
You’ll want to get in line before Mulan’s next scheduled time to secure a spot. It is not uncommon for her line to get cut off as soon as the time begins.

As we make our way around the World Showcase, we’ll stop at the Germany Pavilion to visit Snow White. This Disney princess meets at her wishing well on the outskirts of the pavilion.
Snow White loves to daydream while she’s doing her chores. You might ask her about her friends, the Seven Dwarfs. They are probably busy at work somewhere. I hear they have a mine at Magic Kingdom.
While we’re on the subject of talking points, I will warn you that apples are a sensitive topic with this Disney princess. So, if apples are on your mind, you might be better off stepping inside the Karamell Kuche next door.
Don’t forget to grab a bag of that delicious caramel corn!

After Snow White, we’ll skip a few countries to the Morocco Pavilion. Jasmine from Aladdin meets toward the back of the pavilion inside Lamps of Wonder.
Here is a look at her line as it extends outside her character meet location.
Jasmine loves to tell guests about her adventures with Aladdin on their magic carpet rides. She’ll probably talk about how it’s a whole new world.
She might mention how you can take a spin on a magic carpet when you visit Agrabah. I mean Adventureland, at the Magic Kingdom.

Jasmine meets at Epcot by herself. However, she also meets with Aladdin at Magic Kingdom.

Nearby, you’ll have the opportunity to meet two more Disney Princesses. First, we have Belle, our favorite bookworm. She meets in her village dress alongside the water in front of the France Pavilion.
Belle loves chatting about the weather, the great wide somewhere, and the Beast. Although bringing up Gaston might become a bone of contention, she doesn’t care for him.

Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty also meets in the France Pavilion. Her meet-and-greet is at the gazebo toward the front right side of the pavilion. She meets in her pink dress, not the blue one.
Princess Aurora is the most lively of the Disney princess meet at Epcot. She is always twirling and dancing, which is thrilling for the younger princesses who stop in to meet her!
Aurora enjoys talking about her fairy godmothers, Prince Phillip, and she loves dancing with her forest friends in the woods. You might not care to mention spindles, a finger prick, or the evil villain, Maleficient.

Final Thoughts on Meeting Disney Princesses at Epcot
Hopefully, this article gave you a good idea of where to find Disney Princesses at Epcot. In addition to these character meets, Epcot has one formal dining option for dining with princesses–Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in the Norway Pavilion.
That character dining opportunity includes Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Snow White, and Belle. At this time, the restaurant is open for dinner only.

Lastly, remember the importance of confirming the character meets on the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit. If a character isn’t available on that specific day, their times will not show in the app.
To check their schedule:
- Open the My Disney Experience App.
- Select the location button at the bottom of the app.
- At the top middle, change “wait times” to “characters.”
- Filter to “Epcot” on the top left side of the screen.
- On the top right-hand side of the screen, select list.
A list will then appear of all the characters who meet at Epcot. You can select the characters you want to meet to see their times.
As the day passes, characters will disappear from the app as their last meet-and-greet time passes. Additionally, if a character has to leave early, Disney will pull their meet.
For instance, one afternoon, I had plans to meet several princesses. So I wrote down their times, put them in order, and then saved the list in the notes section of my phone.
Things were going smoothly until it was time to meet Jasmine. Unfortunately, I got to her location about five minutes early, and no one was there.
Since so many people get in line early, I knew this was odd. Plus, let’s face it, I’m never the first person in line for anything.
Several other people came up for the meet within the next few minutes. Eventually, a cast member came over and told us that Jasmine had an emergency and had to fly her magic carpet home for the day.
A few minutes later, I discovered that Belle had a similar fate. So I had to scramble to rework my schedule.
For me, it wasn’t a big deal. I returned on another day to get pictures to update our character articles.
However, for you, it could be your only day in the park. Thankfully, it’s rare for characters to have these kinds of issues.
So if something like this happens, take a moment to regroup and see if there are any characters you can add to your schedule to fill in the missing time slots.
On this day, I met Mary Poppins, Alice, and then Pluto. I never intended to meet Mary Poppins or Pluto due to time constraints. So those adjustments ended up working out.
Additionally, extenuating circumstances, like the weather, can prevent a character from meeting guests. If one of these meets is a priority, you might try to get it out of the way earlier in the day.
