Princess Fairytale Hall at Magic Kingdom is an excellent spot to meet classic princesses during your Walt Disney World vacation. The location is home to four different princesses that meet with guests throughout the day.
This article will look at which princesses you can find at Princess Fairytale Hall. Additionally, I’ll provide a walkthrough of the entire experience. For starters, the princesses that meet here are:
Princess Fairytale Hall is located directly behind Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom. It is positioned across the walkway from Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.

On the left-hand side of this character meet, you’ll notice a sign indicating Rapunzel and Tiana meet inside. An estimated wait time for the meet is posted beside it.
And on the right-hand side, there’s another sign for Cinderella and Elena.
If meeting a specific princess is important to you, you’ll want to get in the appropriate line.
For this visit, I intended to meet all the princesses. So I joined the side that had the shortest wait time posted first.
A portion of the queue for Princess Fairytale Hall extends into the covered outdoor area. However, rarely does the line extend outside. If the line is extended to the outdoor portion of the queue, I might skip it and return later.
Lines for characters can vary greatly depending on how much time everyone in front of you takes. Generally, most guests are respectful of the time they take to meet the character.
However, you’ll likely encounter guests that take many photos in multiple arrangements when it’s their turn. For example, it’s not uncommon to see one person take a photo of grandma with the kids and the character and then a picture of just the kids.
After that, they’ll take a photo of each child individually. Then they’ll change up, and the original picture taker will have their picture made with the character and the children.
While this might sound like an exaggeration, it’s not. There are no limits on how much time a guest has to meet with a character. So some will take more time than others.
Inside Princess Fairytale Hall, you’ll feel as though you stepped inside a castle. The hall is dimly lit with a royal feeling.
Portraits of different Disney princesses hang on the walls. Some of these Disney Princesses meet at Epcot during the day.

Before you go into the meet and greet area, you might notice Cinderella’s glass slipper. It sits between the interior entrance to each character’s meet.
Elena of Avalor was the first princess.
When I took these photos, all of the princesses were behind ropes.
Since then, the ropes have been removed. Now you can walk up and hug them. Additionally, PhotoPass photographers are available at this location.
If you don’t have the Memory Maker, you are welcome to take pictures with your cell phone or camera. You’ll want to have them out and ready before your turn.
Speaking of having things ready, the princesses sign autographs. A cast member attending the meet will instruct you to have your autograph book available and open to the page you want the character to sign.
After meeting Elena, you’ll move directly over to Cinderella. There is a beautiful storybook on display between the two meet and greets.
Cinderella is dressed to the nines in her blue ball gown.
The only other place to meet Cinderella at Walt Disney World is Cinderella’s Royal Table.

After meeting Cinderella, you’ll end up back outside Princess Fairytale Hall. To meet Tiana and Rapunzel, you’ll have to re-enter on the opposite side. Let’s take a quick look at meeting these princesses.
Tiana and Rapunzel meet in the same room, similar to Elena and Cinderella.
I’ve always thought it was nice to meet two characters at the end of the line instead of one. But I’m a sucker for a two-for-one deal.
Tiana enjoys talking about food, cooking, and entrepreneurship.
Rapunzel will want to know if you got the nose right if you take her picture. She’s very upbeat and friendly.
If you or your children are interested in meeting characters, you’ll want to add Princess Fairytale Hall to your itinerary.
