Character dining at Disneyland 2018

Now that Ariel's Grotto is closed (possibly permanently), where is the best place in Disneyland to have a character dining experience that features the Disney princesses?

Welcome to forum posting Terrie G,

Yes, Ariel's Grotto is a permanent closure.

Unfortunately, as far as Im aware, there are just not any Character Dining that is going to have princesses. Most are the basic Disneyland Characters.

Do you know about the Royal Hall meet and greet that takes place every day in Fantasy Faire next to the castle? Three princesses, each in their own separate little room. Completely free with park admission. (Not a character meal.)

We have done this, stood in line and met the princesses and then jumped back into line and we had different princesses the second time around.
