Princess Day Challenge

One of my many past times is looking up all of the fun adventures within the Disney theme parks. My favorite Disney park is Walt Disney World (maybe because it's the only one I've been to). You just can't beat its size and, of course, Cinderella's castle.

I am very interested in the Disney College Program, an internship where you live, learn and work in the Disney parks. One of the things you are supposed to do before you go down there is make a bucket list of all the things you want to accomplish in and around the parks. One of the most reoccurring bucket list items is to have a Princess Day!

A Princess Day in Walt Disney World is when you go all throughout the four main theme parks to find the 13 Disney princesses, get their autographs, take classic photos and ask them questions. These princesses truly did step out of their story and are there to make your experience magical.

Below is a break down of where you can find each princess, what each one is like, what items you can take with you to spice up the pictures and some questions you can ask her. Remember to dress your very best because hey, you're a princess too!
