Walt Disney World Puts Princess Promenade on Hold Until 2018

We have learned that Walt Disney World has temporarily stopped holding the Princess Promenade at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa until after the new year. With the addition of the gingerbread house and other holiday activities going on in the lobby, it was too crowded to coordinate this event.  The Princess Promenade is scheduled to return to the resort starting on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018.  All guests are able to attend, not just guests that are staying at the resort.


The Princess Promenade is a free experience at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa where young guests are able to meet and greet with Cinderella and her prince.  The event typically takes place each afternoon at 3:30 PM at the resort where Cinderella and her prince lead a line of kiddos down the staircase to the main floor of the lobby.  Then they dance in the lobby with all of the guests.  Before they head downstairs, they also pose for photos with the kids.

This event is definitely a fun event and it is very nice that it is free.  There are only a few free character events outside of the theme parks, so we hope that Disney will add more of these resort events for guests.

Have any of you participated in or seen the Princess Promenade?  It is definitely fun for everyone!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
