Sofia the First

My 3 year old daughter loves Disney's newest princess Sofia the First. Does anyone know if there are any plans to add her as a character on the cruise ships? We have a cruise booked on the Fantasy this fall and it would be amazing if she could meet and take a photo with her favorite princess!

I would think that's highly unlikely since Sophia is a child.

I don't think that would have any bearing, if you look at the way they do the Little Einsteins, Phineas and Ferb, Lilo, etc. Guessing she would appear like she did in the parade, not as a face character.

I know nothing LOL but just a guess, I wouldn't think she'd make it on the ships by then, since she's not in the parks yet either for meets.

Peter Pan is a character on the ships and he's young, so I can always hope! It's the outfit- not the age- that makes the character for the kids, so I really hope the comment about age being a factor is wrong. And it seems like Sofia is super popular these days - at least according to the people at the Disney store!

Sophia is popular because she is new I think and because she's a young girl - easy for kids to relate to. Same with Doc McStuffins being so popular - had to really hunt for any of her stuff around Christmas!

Sorry, I didn't think about the parades with Sophia because I haven't seen them. I just think Sophia is a little different than say Peter Pan. I would expect a very young girl to be Sophia. But then I'm a jaded grown-up.

She's going to be at the park soon, so maybe the cruises will add her as well. My daughter loves her also. The Neverland Pirates are all little kids too!

If they use this for cruise character greetings no young child needed. As more people request character greetings with her she'll get more.

I guess all the Sofia lovers will have to speak up then!

Thanks for the replies- I really hope that they add Sofia to their cast of characters.

I'd like to see Rapunzel added before Sofia! It's been 2 years and she's still not on the ships

Pretty sure the Sofia pic is from Magic Kingdom; it was definitely the CHristmas parade and they kept going back and forth between the parks. Sofia is also huge among grown women, and a new toy line just came out.

Could not agree more! Rapunzel on the ships is long overdue!
