Where to Find Aurora and All Things Sleeping Beauty at Disney World
*Note that due to COVID-19 character meets and character meals at Disney World have been suspended in order to keep guests safely distanced. For more on COVID changes at the parks see the full article here.
If you have a big Princess fan in your house (or maybe YOU are the Princess fan yourself), you may have your heart set on meeting and enjoying everything Princess related.
If Princess Aurora is your favorite classic Princess, you'll want to know where you can find all things Sleeping Beauty when you are at Disney World.
Here I'll tell you where you can find all things Aurora and Sleeping Beauty at the parks.
The Magic Kingdom
Aurora is often a featured princess at Cinderella's Royal Table. This restaurant is located inside Cinderella's Castle, and is a popular Princess stop.
Here you'll meet Aurora in her beautiful pink gown. But first you'll stop to take a photo (with a photopass photographer) with Cinderella. After you meet the head Princess, you'll be escorted upstairs where you'll enjoy a prix fix meal (it will cost 2 dining credits if you are using the dining plan).
You and your family will take part in a fun wishing ceremony, where the kids will receive either a sword or a wand. Various Princesses will visit your table (this time you'll have to have your camera ready, as there are no photographers).
While the Princesses you'll meet are not always the same, Aurora is usually there to chat with you while you dine.
Festival of Fantasy Parade
During the Festival of Fantasy Parade at the Magic Kingdom, you'll see several Sleeping Beauty characters make their way down Main Street USA.
You'll see the terrifying Malificent breath fire as she glides down Main Street. You'll also see Aurora's guardian fairies zip by you on the parade route (I don't know how else to describe it, but it's adorable and fun to watch).
This parade takes place daily at either 2 or 3pm. Check your My Disney Experience app for exact times during your trip.
You can make reservations at Akershus Royal Banquet storybook dining at Epcot to meet several Princesses, including Aurora.
This delicious buffet is a favorite (and a great option if you can't get in or don't want to spend the money on Cinderella's Royal Table). You'll find it in the Norway Pavilion in The World Showcase.
The Princesses that you meet during this meal are never guaranteed (they sometimes switch out the characters that you'll meet), but Aurora is there more often than not.
This particular restaurant offers breakfast reservations before the park opens.
Since Princess Aurora left Fairytale Hall at the Magic Kingdom, this is now the only character meet spot that you can find her.
She can be found in the France Pavilion of the World Showcase. While you can't get a FastPass for this character meet, you can find available times in the My Disney Experience app.
At the Grand Floridian Resort you can make a reservation for Disney's Perfectly Princess Tea Party.
This once in a lifetime tea party is hosted by Aurora, and features juice "tea" for kids, as well as sandwiches and other light eats. There is a Princess Parade, songs, and story telling. It is perfect for any little Prince or Princess.
Reservations can be hard to come by, so you'll want to be sure to book this 180 days before your trip as reservations open up.
