Merida Gets a New Meet and Greet Location at Magic Kingdom
If you were following along with us here at Walt Disney World you’ll know that yesterday marked the last day that beloved Scottish Princess Merida was meeting guests at Fairytale Garden at Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom.
Mirabel has vacated the premises so that Disney can revamp Fairytale Gardens for a new meet and greet featuring Mirabel from Encanto.
Disney has yet to give us an official opening date for the Mirabel character encounter but we do know that its coming at some point this year!
For those wondering what’s happening to Merida, we’ve got some good news!
Merida will now be meeting guests at the gazebo located near the Christmas Shop in Liberty Square.
Merida’s new home has long been a popular spot for character meet and greets at Magic Kingdom.
Recently it’s been a meet-and-greet spot for Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen.
No word yet on whether our beloved Scottish Princess from the film Brave will have exclusive use of the gazebo space or for how long.
We popped by the gazebo this morning to see how Merida likes her new digs!
Here she is showing off those archery skills.
As of this morning, the meet and greet area was pretty quiet as most guests are presumably unaware that Merida has moved.
We suspect that word-of-mouth will be out before too long!
For those using the My Disney Experience App, we can report that Merida’s new location is posted on the app’s theme park maps.
Though we’re excited to welcome Mirabel to the Magic Kingdom, we’re also glad to see that Merida still has her place at the park!
We will continue to follow Merida and Mirabel’s whereabouts!
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with us for further Walt Disney World news and updates!
