    I know you can see her at the Princess Storybook meal at Norway, but I dont think you can meet her in the parks but I may be wrong.

    When you get to the MK, as at Guest Services inside Town Hall. If she's out by any chance, they'll let you know the location and times. Good luck.

    Really Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    If meeting Ariel is a must, make an ADR for the Princesses at Norway.

    Isn't she still appearing at the Adventurland Veranda area?

    She is...I believe she is typically there from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, but the times can vary and there is no guarantee for the day.

    You could try asking for the times guide from the resort concierge (if staying on-site) if you wanted an idea on if/when she'd be available without having to go to the parks first. I know they've printed them for me in the past.

    Steve Soares site is a good place to look up that info as well, but it of course is subject to change, and I've found it poorly formatted at times. He also had to relocate the site recently..ah, here it is:

    Walt Disney World Live Entertainment

    Her days at the Veranda may be numbered, as there has been talk about relocating the rest of the princesses there for a while. Ariel is said to get a new M&G at her own attraction when that is ready.

    Meet and Greet at the Adventureland Veranda Porch.
    (Of course that is just a temporary location until she gets a permanent home in the new Fantasyland expansion.)

    Voyage of the Little Mermaid show near Animation Courtyard.

    Character meal at Akershus (B,L,D) in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot.

    As popular as she is, I am surprised she isn't used more in the parks. She's my daughter's favorite princess!

    Do the meal at Akershus in the Norway pavilion at EPCOT. Meet all the princesses in their grand ball gowns and get plenty of face time with each one. Good meal, too.

    Just saw their visit dates....oops! Hope you had a blast!!! lol
