For many young girls the opportunity to see Disney Princesses live and in person is the hallmark of any Walt Disney World Resort visit.

To help navigate you on the path to finding your favorites, here’s an alphabetical list of Disney Princesses and where you can find them all throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

1. Ariel

Ariel, of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, has been making a splash around the Walt Disney World scene for several decades now and remains an all-time favorite Disney Princess for many girls. And in her quest to become part of our world, she’s certainly been making rounds within the various parks and eating establishments. One of your best bets for catching this fishy favorite is to visit Ariel’s Grotto—her very own character meet and greet spot at the Magic Kingdom. She also likes to make appearances at various character dining engagements around Walt Disney World Resort, like Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park, Akershus Royal Banquet Hall within Epot, and Trattoria al Forno at Disney’s BoardWalk where she, Rapunzel, and their leading men all bring you the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast. Ariel can be seen riding along on her own float during the Festival of Fantasy Parade and is also featured during the Hollywood Studios productions of Fantasmic! And while you’re already at Hollywood Studios, flap your fins on over to the Voyage of the Little Mermaid stage show for the chance to see her starring in a live-action production that runs multiple performances throughout the day.

2. Aurora

Princess Aurora, known more commonly as Sleeping Beauty, still manages to find time to get around at Walt Disney World Resort despite her less than conventional sleep habits.

She also makes appearances at both Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot and Cinderella’s Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom. There’s also the Perfectly Princess Tea Party at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for girls ages 3 to 9 (plus one adult accompanying) to enjoy a private teatime engagement in which Princess Aurora makes an appearance along with the magical live embodiment of “Rose Pedal”—a rose from her garden.

3. Belle

Disney’s best-loved bookworm of a princess, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, can be found wandering about many different wings within Walt Disney World Resort.
