Where to find Disney Cruise Characters to Meet & Greet

On your Disney Cruise Navigator App, you will be able to find a list of all the Disney Cruise character meet & greets for each day of your cruise.

It will tell you which Disney Cruise Characters are available to meet along with the time & place to see them.

Just show up about 10 minutes ahead of that time & you will find a line forming and a Disney cast member.

The lines are usually not terrible and do move fast!

Formal Night Meet & Greet

You will find Mickey Mouse and his friends are available almost daily (but are dressed in different outfits based on the theme for that given day), but other characters appear only at limited times.

Be sure to arrive about 15 minutes ahead of the time with your camera and Disney autograph book. If you wait and the line gets too long, they will cut the line off.

Disney Princess Meet & Greets

There will be one Disney Princess Meet & Greet where you can visit with each princess on board the ship.

Usually, this event is in the Atrium of the ship and 4 princesses are available for pictures. We have seen Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Cinderella, Ariel and Tiana. 

This doesn’t mean that other princesses don’t appear, these are just the ones that we have seen.

Frozen Character Meet & Greet

Depending on the length of the cruise, there might be up to two Frozen Character Meet & Greets.

In order to participate for the Frozen Meet & Greet, you have to go to guest services and get a ticket.

There is no extra cost, but they found that this particular meet & greet was so popular that they had to find a way to handle the crowds.

Tickets for the Frozen Meet & Greet tend to go quickly, so be sure to make that one of the first things you do when you board the ship.
