YES! They will be out through the 17th I believe. It was such a treat to see them. They were only with the princesses in the area over by Small World (the temporary princess faire area). I recommend getting there 15 minutes before it starts, then after you meet the first set of 3 immediately get back in line and you should be cycled through for the next round of 3. Worked perfectly for us today!

When we got there 15 minutes prior to it starting we were about 10th in line, then by the time we cycled through the 2nd time we were there for just a little over an hour total. (Not bad at all for 6 princesses/princes!)

Around noon we checked back and it was an EASY 1.5 hr long wait. So....go early right before it starts and knock out 2 rounds right away!! Very well worth it for the rare opportunity of meeting the princes.

Some other info if anyone's interested...

Mulan and Mushu are at DCA outside the Little Mermaid ride (through Wednesday I believe). Ask a CM what time their processionals are, and they run over for a little M&G immediately after. We saw them at 1:30.

The Blue Bayou Bash M&G's are hidden back in that little shopping area of New Orleans Square (by where Blue Bayou and Club 33 are). The line for this was really short cuz I dont think a lot of people knew it was back there!! GREAT costumes and great character interaction. My daughter had the best time fooling around with Goofy!

Lady Tremaine and stepsisters were out being playful in front of the Small World area all morning long. They'd leave and come back out repeatedly over the course of about 3 hours. (We spent a lot of time over there between the princesses, merida, and toon town.) No official M&G's were set up, it was all casual and spur of the moment interactions. They were signing autographs and taking pictures freely when asked.

Watch out for the stepsisters they'll try and steal your husband. They were really fun to interact with. Rabbit was also out in critter country on Sunday afternoon.

Also, because of True Love week, I hear Prince Naveen is supposed to be out with Princess Tiana. And because of Mardi Gras (so if you happen to be in the parks today) Mickey and Minnie are in their Mardi Gras King and Queen outfits. I'm so jealous that you got to meet a lot of princes! DBF and I were there the first week of February, but can't make it out for true love week due to schools and interviews and such. I'm glad you had a blast!
