Super friendly Princesses. Photo opp's galore. Very good food. Excellent servers. Memorable luncheon for our 5 year old birthday girl (and aspiring Princess).

We decided to take our granddaughter there for lunch for her to see the princesses. When we arrived we were greeted by Ariel and a photographer took a picture which cost us 40.00. If you purchase a Disney photo pass for $99.95 when you go to the park or 69.95 up to 3 weeks before you go all the photos... More

We arrived on time and waited on a spiral staircase to meet Ariel. After our photos were taken, we were shown our seats on the verendah, we would of preferred inside as it was such a hot day, but none were available. Our hostess and waiters were amazing, friendly and efficient. The meal was delicious and we had enough time... More

We normally don't expect to get decent food at a Disney Character Experience, but we were pleasantly surprised with the food, service and overall experience at Ariel's Grotto! Lots of princesses, lots to choose from on the menu and wait staff was outstanding. I just wish the photo ops with Ariel came free with the meal. The meals are expensive... More

If you have a reservation don't arrive too early because they make you sit and wait till your reservation time. When you enter finally you wait on a huge line to meet Ariel and take a photo and later on they come Around with the picture for purchase I think it's twenty dollars. Not much of a food variety it's... More

Bought the dinner package with the Worlds of Color premium view. It was pricey but the good food and the view of the show was great! With the meal you get a drink, appetizer, main course and desert. We sat outside near the lake and had a great view while dining.

Great interaction with all the princesses (Ariel, Rapunzel, Belle, Cinderella and Snow White.) Never felt rushed and after meeting Ariel, all the other princesses came to our table. We sat outside which was nice. Food was pretty good (B).

We had an excellent experience at the Princess Luncheon. We checked in 10 minutes early, and were given a beeper that ended up going off almost exactly at the time of our original reservation. The girls were positively giddy to meet the princesses. Yes the food was expensive (and my daughters barely ate their meal anyway because they were too... More

I read the bad reviews here but i thought they were isolated cases. We went there for our daughter (4-yr) birthday. We made reservation online for 12:50 pm. We arrived on 12:40 pm and they made us wait for more than 30 minutes! There is not enough waiting room in the 'lobby' so we had to stand the whole time... More
