Frozen Meet & Greet

by Gaylin

The new FastPass+ system is a wonderful thing . . . if you use it wisely. While some of the choices I made ahead of time were not the best, I definitely did one thing very right.
I scheduled a FastPass+ time to do a meet & greet with Anna and Elsa from Frozen.

They are the 'hot' commodity in meet ups right now at the Magic Kingdom, with the new Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland being their home.

My FP+ meet up time was 1:25 to 2:25 p.m.
After having lunch, I headed over to the hall to see what all the fuss was about, when I got there I was shocked to see this sign:

Yes, you are reading this correctly, without a FP+ you would be waiting for 5, count 'em, 5 hours!!!! Even with the FP+ the line was not moving quickly, I did wait about 25 minutes in a fairly plain hallway to see the sisters.

I did like this lighting fixture, who wouldn't want a crown in their hall!

The hallway may have been a bit plain but the air conditioning was greatly appreciated. I have no idea where the stand-by queue was, the FP+ and stand-by lines are completely separate.

And finally, the sisters. I have to say that Anna and Elsa were the most entertaining meet up I have ever had.
There were a couple families ahead of me and the sisters got even a very shy little girl to interact with them. They chatted and were very engaged. Elsa swirled her dress train quite dramatically for every photo. I was impressed before I even got to greet them. They were very friendly with me, I managed to not be a tongue-tied goof and had a lot of fun with them. Too bad that while I was in the 25 minute line-up, I didn't take time to powder my nose . . . you can tell from the shine, I had on my sunscreen!

After meeting the sisters, I met up with Aurora. It is obvious that she is outshone by the Frozen girls but she chatted with me and I told her I wore my pink shirt just to match her dress (I was fibbing but that's okay). She was quite gracious, I did enjoy this meet up.

Would I wait 5 hours to do it again, nope.
Is it worth the FP+? Absolutely!


  1. We'll be using FP+ for sure to visit the sisters on a future trip!

    1. Please do - they were so charming and fun.
