Meeting your favorite princess can make every little girl’s dreams come true, and if your little ones love Tangled as much as my little girl, they may be desperate to see Rapunzel with her beautiful long hair during your trip to Disney World. The latest Disney adaptation of this fairy tale classic gives the stolen princess a sassiness, independence, and confidence that makes her a great role model for modern little girls while retaining all the charm and wonder of the traditional princess in her helpless plight.
Where are the best places to go in Disney World to guarantee a meeting with the one and only princess from the tower? Rapunzel and her Tangled teammates can be found at several venues in the Magic Kingdom; she even hosts her own meet-and-greet at the Princess Fairytale Hall.
If you take breakfast at Disney’s boardwalk, Rapunzel might even visit your table. She also joins Flynn and all the notorious dreamers from the Snuggly Duckling in Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire and you can see her tower in Fantasyland.

Her strength, ambition, and the courage to follow her heart makes her a powerful modern princess and meeting her will inspire every little girl to make their own dreams come true.
At Disney World, you can not only meet Rapunzel but also see some of the characters she helped and appreciate how their lives have improved through her special charms. Make some memories that will last forever and enhance what you already know about this special princess.
Meet and Greet at the Princess Fairytale Hall, Magic Kingdom
You and your family can spend some time with Rapunzel, chatting and posing for photographs during her Meet and Greet at the Princess Fairytale Hall. Based in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom and steeped in splendor, the Fairytale Hall is the perfect setting to meet a princess of Rapunzel’s caliber.
Tip: You can find out from the guides the exact time she will be available, and you can also use the Disney Fastpass+ offer to make a reservation and beat the queue.
Rapunzel usually appears hourly throughout the day. She will give you her undivided attention for at least a few minutes, answering your questions and posing for photographs or signing autographs to give you a souvenir you can keep forever.
Because Rapunzel makes time for every guest, the queues can sometimes become very long. If you don’t use the Fastpass+ system, you should plan to arrive early so you can guarantee your spot in line. Sometimes if the line is too long the staff will have to close the queue since it won’t be possible for her to meet everyone personally. Aim to arrive early in the day if you hope to find shorter queues. On the other hand, you may enjoy gazing at the delights of the Fairytale Hall as you wait and you can enjoy the excitement of the build-up as you plan what you might say to Rapunzel or any questions you might like to ask her.
Disney’s Boardwalk Breakfast Dining Experience
The Bon Voyage Breakfast Experience at Trattoria al Forno is another great opportunity for you and your little ones to spend some time chatting to Rapunzel and pose for photographs. As you enjoy a sumptuous family breakfast, Rapunzel and her friend, Flynn Rider, will visit your table to chat and say hello. The Italian themed restaurant includes a varied menu and sits on the waterside beside Disney’s Boardwalk hotel. You could enjoy a boat ride to and from the venue to add to the experience.
Each of these options will give you the chance to talk to Rapunzel herself. She will be happy to pose for photographs and there will be Disney photographers available who can help you get the perfect shot, either with your own camera or as part of Disney’s PhotoPass and Magic Photos service.
Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire
This extravagant show features Mickey and a host of characters from a range of classic and modern Disney delights. Set on the forecourt of Cinderella’s Castle in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, this dazzling show takes place several times during the day and features Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, and several characters from the Snuggly Duckling. Remind yourselves of the importance of dreams as you enjoy music from Tangled in an exciting extravaganza.
Festival of Fantasy Parade, Fantasyland
The daily parade includes a whole float devoted to the characters of Tangled, including Rapunzel and all her friends. Wave at Rapunzel and Maximus as they pass by, and see if you can spot little Pascal hiding near his loyal friend. The parade is very popular and you may need to find a good spot in plenty of time if you want a front-row view of Rapunzel. It starts on Main Street USA and ends in Frontierland, so there are plenty of places in the Magic Kingdom where you can join the excitement.
The Tangled Area of the Magic Kingdom
You might not see Rapunzel in person here, but you should certainly see plenty of her possessions and reminders of other characters from Tangled. This is a rest area and helpfully includes locations where you can recharge your phone or just relax and enjoy the carefully crafted Tangled based scenery. There is a restroom designed by your favorite princess and you should find plenty of posters and decor from the Snuggly Duckling, including Flynn Rider’s Wanted posters.
If you look closely, you might be able to spot Maximus’s powerful hoofprints and Pascal is hiding nearby, waiting for you to spot him. See the beautiful lights that inspired Rapunzel to leave her tower in the first place, and that eventually led her home to her real family.
