We were there a couple of weeks ago and I was tracking the wait times frequently. The lowest we saw was 45 mins and the highest was 90 minutes. You can track wait times via the Disneyland Paris app which is really handy and I found it to be accurate. We were in the park  Thursday to Sunday and saw three princesses, wait times were 45 mins, 15 minutes (queued for 10am entry) and 60 minutes respectively. But worth the wait if you are princess-mad! We had movies loaded onto the iPad to keep the girls amused. I think they appreciated the chance to sit down and relax in the cool pavilion.

Just FYI Belle is in the Studios park and I would advise getting there and queuing straight away if you want to meet her.  :D

Agreed, we were at the park gates at 9.30 when they start letting people in for EMH, went straight to Belle and were third in the line when they opened the doors at 9.45.

LONG.

ALWAYS.

If you wait 45 minutes to one hour - you did good.

I was there in spring, waited 90mins, and was rushed through, no real interaction other than snapping some photos. I met Cinderella, didn’t enjoy it and not sure I would do it again! In contrast, I waited 30-40mins to meet Alice and Hatter and had such a wonderful experience with lots of lovely photos and video!

Hi all, is it just a queueing system now to meet the princesses? Do they not use the ticketed return time anymore? Also do you know who is going to be there before you queue so that if we were to start queueing in early magic hours we would know which princess it was for?
Thanks

They haven't used the tickets in about 2 years.
Yes, it's regular queueing.

On the sign outside, it says which princess is in there.

We went in July 17 and the ladies in our group waited outside before it opened and were very near the front when it opened. When it did open they went in and waited their turn but we're passed by a lot of people who said they had family in front of them in the queue. Many more people passed them than were in front of them in the queue so at least some were telling fibs to jump the line, cast members did nothing to stop this which was disappointing.

On the App it says it is now open from 8:30-17:30 and during the day I haven't seen waiting much longer then 75mins. They also now have a stand outside saying which princess it is and they change half way, one is there till 15:00 and the next till 17:30.

Hi we are going with my princess obsessed nephew in July. We will be getting a disability pass for him but have been warned by a friend that you have to race down to the pavilion to queue to get a ticket for later in the day. We aren't staying on site and plan on getting there early. My problem is _ I will have to queue at the donald desk to get his and my ticket (I get a free carer ticket). My oh will be collecting his and our sons pre booked tickets.We then will need to get his priority pass. I understand this doesn't apply for the meet and greets and the princesses so will one of us be best staying to get that and the other run for the ticket? Or am I completely misunderstanding?
