My friends and I booked the World of Colour package here, and if World of Colour hadn't been amazing, I would say don't bother. The food was great, but the service was very slow, and the server was awful. When she forgot three of the drinks, we waited ten minutes before asking her and she snapped at us, telling us... More

We ate here Nov. 20th for lunch and although quite pricey, we felt it was worth trying one time. Saw many princesses (Rapunzel, Belle, Tiana, Jasmine and Ariel) and they were at our table in no time. I do think it is much better if you get seated inside as we did. The food was good, and I was worried... More

This place is supposed to be for the kids, lots of princesses visiting throughout the meal (which was a fun experience, especially for a 5 year old.) However, the food offerings were all a tad too gourmet for children and even many adults. Vegetarian meals had to be special ordered. Expected seafood choices, after all this was supposed to be...

We ate here for my daughters 7th birthday and it was like a dream come true for her. Seeing the look on her face when the princess kept coming out was all worth it. The food was pricey but yum and it was all very worth it in the end, a memory that we will all remember fondly.

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
