Every Disney princess has a wish she wants, whether she wants a star, stands above a wishing well, or swims in the ocean, each has something she really wants.
On Friday, several Disney characters will grant children’s wishes for the next vacation, just by being there for a photoshoot.
Kristi Bates, organizer of the event, said that every year they have the Disney Princesses on Halloween and this year they will be bringing the Princesses back for a Christmas reunion with friends.
From 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, December 17 at 1906 Meadowview Drive, Disney Princesses, such as Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Belle, Moana, Ariel and Jasmine, will have a special appearance during the event.
According to the princess team, Santa Claus will stop to take photos during the meeting.
Princesses ask children to wear an ugly Christmas sweater, Christmas cardigan, Christmas pajamas or come as you are.
“We like to see all ages,” Bates said. What a wonderful start to the Christmas holidays.
Bates, a 22-year-old teacher, has a lifelong goal of helping children.
“Make them feel special and see them smile,” Bates said.
Bates said the first time she dressed up as Princess Belle was in 2016.
“It was Halloween, and I wasn’t expecting anyone to want a photo with me,” Bates said. “To my surprise, kids and adults alike wanted to take pictures. “
Bates said that after her first year with the Princesses, she grew bigger with more characters, adding more in the third year, and eventually became a regular event on Halloween.
“We saw 400 kids come, then 650 the next year,” Bates said. “Until this year, we have had over 1,000 children come to meet the characters and take pictures.”
Bates said she loves seeing children meet their favorite Disney princess.
“One thing I know is that not all kids are going to Disney World,” Bates said. “I was one of those kids. I never met any Disney characters growing up. It is something that my friends and I can give to these children. For a while, they get to meet their favorite character, and at that point, they have those characters’ full attention.
Bates loves being able to give the children in the area the opportunity to “feel this magic”.
During the encounter, the kids will take home a photo as a visual keepsake, according to Bates.
“If we can help kids feel the magic, even for a moment, then we’re doing something we can be proud of,” Bates said.
Disney characters will be giving away small prizes and candy canes while supplies last.
According to the princesses, families will want to bring their own phone or camera to take pictures.
