We met Ariel today (in a new dress) at the newly reopened Disneyland Hotel at Disneyland Paris as part of “A Disney Royal Encounter”. This experience is included with the hotel stay, and we booked the encounter in the Disneyland Paris app seven days in advance. That being said, we also were able to book a second character encounter right away today (with Cinderella) since more slots were available. We didn’t know who our royal encounter would be with when we first signed up.
Here is our video with Ariel, and then the full experience in photos.
A Disney Royal Encounter is located in the Royal Kids Club area.
We checked in at the desk for A Disney Royal Encounter. There are also books in this area for kids to read, in various languages including French, English and German. We waited about 5-10 minutes to meet Ariel here.
Coloring sheets are nearby.
Ariel is standing in front of a storybook backdrop, with a carpet that includes various royal references.

Ariel posed for us.
She also showed a twirl.
Ariel talked about the backdrop, as well as the carpet.
The carpet includes a Fantasyland Castle, an apple, a glass slipper, and a starfish.
A Disney Royal Encounter is sure to be a very popular experience as guests discover it, so check your app seven days prior to your Disneyland Hotel stay.
We will have much more to share in the coming days from the Disneyland Hotel at Disneyland Paris!
