Top Tens for Princesses

For anyone with a little princess at home, a trip to Walt Disney World can be an extra magical experience. Of course you can ride all the princess rides, but WDW offers so many special experiences for a princess fan. As a life-long princess fan myself, these are my top ten favourite Disney experiences for princesses!

10. To make a Disney World vacation extra special, be sure to start before the parks. Pack a special princess bag for the plane or car ride with her favourite doll, books, and other princess-y surprises. You can even start your vacation with a special good morning phone call from her favourite princess personalized just for her.

9.  If you're out to spoil your little princess rotten, try ordering an in-room surprise for her. After a day at the parks, your princess will return to the hotel to find a magical present waiting for her. There are packages for every price range so you have your choice of a simple welcome package from her princess friends or an all-out princess bonanza.

8. Every night in the Magic Kingdom, the sky lights up to Wishes, a spectacular fireworks show that brings all of your favourite Disney characters together. Tinkerbell might even make a special appearance to delight any princess who looks for her.

7. Tucked away near the Tomorrowland entrance to Cinderella's Castle is Cinderella's Wishing Well. Bring your princess to find her favourite Cinderella characters on the well and make a wish. All coins tossed into the well are collected regularly and donated to children's charities.

6. My Disney Girl's Perfectly Princess Tea Party, held in the Grand Floridian resort, invites princesses between 3 and 11 years old along with their parents to take official princess lessons, dine on tea sandwiches and fruit juice, and participate in singing and storytelling. Each princess also takes home a special Sleeping Beauty doll and crown as a special gift.

5. Storytime with Belle might have been removed, but Magic Kingdom's Fairytale Garden is now home to a Tangled play-and-greet. Meet Rapunzel, Flynn, and Pascal, colour some Tangled pictures with special princess crayons, and take part in a sing-and-dance-along.

4. Princess Meet-and-Greets are definitely a must-do for any little princess. Her favourite characters can be found around EPCOT and Magic Kingdom at different times during the day. Look for Belle, Jasmine, and Snow White in EPCOT outside of their home country pavilions or check the Daily Times board near the entrance to the Magic Kingdom to find out where and when to grab some autographs.

3. Opening March 2012 (but currently accepting reservations), Princess-Themed Rooms are coming to Port Orleans Riverside resort. Although you can expect to pay more per night than the standard moderate resort room, your princess will get to rest her head under a firework-lit headboard surrounded by pictures of Disney's classic girls.

2. After a busy day, there's nothing better than a relaxing meal. What if at that meal, your princess could find herself surprised by all of the Disney princesses? Cinderella's Table in the Magic Kingdom, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall at the Norway pavilion in EPCOT, and Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian resort all offer princess-themed character dining and are all on the Disney Dining Plan! (Tip: Reservations are strongly suggested for any character dining experience, but especially for Cinderella's Table. Call 407-WDW-DINE to book your special dinner.)

1. Of course, the ultimate experience for any princess has to be the Bibbidi-Bobbidi Boutique. With two locations (one in Magic Kingdom and the other in Downtown Disney), you can bring your little girl to a Fairy Godmother In Training to transform her into a real princess. There are packages for every budget so every little princess can feel extra special.
