Pirate or Mermaid Makeover 

The kids loved the mermaid makeover but there was a lot of waiting time and there was a forced wait to get your photo taken professionally afterwards in a separate room then a wait for them to show you the photo and tell you that it’s something crazy like $45. Insist on skipping the photo.

IF YOU LOVE PRINCESSES, FAIRIES, AND MERMAIDS

Here’s a selection of options; not comprehensive:

 MEALS

Meeting Jasmine at Cinderella's Royal Table. Cinderella greets you as you enter the castle then you go upstairs to eat and get visited by multiple princesses at your table.

Cinderella’s Royal Table

Elegant breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom where Cinderella greets you and a variety of princesses stop by your table. I’ve been there twice over 15 months and got tableside visits from: Jasmine, Snow White, and Aurora at both; Rapunzel at one and Ariel at another. This year we had a reservation at an off hour (2:10 pm to be exact) and it was a much more smooth experience with much less wait time before being seated.

Ride in a seashell and relive the story of the movie.

 MEET AND GREETS

You can buy an autograph book so kids have a way of interacting. I think it is fun to talk to the princesses as they are in character. I asked Jasmine what her pet tiger’s name was (“Raja”); Snow White if she still eats apples (“Yes, but I never take them from strangers”); Aurora if she’s really well rested (“Yes, I don’t have to sleep nearly as much now”).
