Today January 17, as we predicted, Walt Disney World have revealed that Ariel's Meet & Greet and Enchanted Tales With Belle are returning to Magic Kingdom after an absence of nearly three years.


Both Enchanted Tales With Belle and Ariel’s Grotto has been shuttered ever since Walt Disney World closed in March 2020 when COVID-19 forced the entire Walt Disney World Resort to close.


Now both character experiences are returning very soon, which is great news!


Ariel’s Grotto will reopen to guests on January 22, and Enchanted Tales with Belle will return on February 19, 2023.

Walt Disney World definitely appears to be on a charm offensive, as we have seen the resort announce that they are no longer charging guests to park their car at resorts, the decision to ease the park reservation system for pass members, the announcement that the barges were being demolished in World Showcase Lagoon, the return of Happily Ever After, and not to mention the return of long time shuttered meet and greet Pete’s Silly Sideshow Meet & Greet!


This is all a step in the right direction, and to see all entertainment and meet and greets return to Walt Disney World is great news!

It's as if Disney is finally getting the message that they need to treat guests better, and now another decision appears to have been made to please guests, yes, Ariel's Meet & Greet is set to return to Magic Kingdom soon according to insiders at the resort.


Ariel’s Grotto has been shuttered ever since Walt Disney World closed in March 2020 when COVID-19 forced the resort to close, but it's expected that Ariel's Grotto will reopen later this month, or February at the latest.


While we don't have an exact date for the return of the Little Mermaid meet and greet, Walt Disney World should be making an announcement soon.
