A to Z Obscure Disney World Tips: R

R is for: Rapunzel

Rapunzel is Disney's newest princess and the highest in demand for photo ops.  Lines to see her get outrageously long so if your little one (or not-so-little one as was the case with me) has her heart set on standing next to the long-haired vixen, get in line as soon as you can after park opening. And be warned---these princesses must have a powerful union, because it seems 'Punzel gets a break every 15 minutes or so, dragging out the wait time. 

Currently the place to meet Rapunzel---and apparently Flynn too, although he wasn't there the day we went---is at the Magic Kingdom in Fairytale Gardens, at the rear of Cinderella's castle on the Tomorrowland side.  With the new Fantasyland partial openings, I imagine character greetings will get switched around so the best thing to do is grab a park map with an event insert to see where & when she's stationed that day...or you can tune in tomorrow for the Disney World planning tip of the century. ;) 

Disney World Trivia
What kind of animal is Rapunzel's pet?  And for a bonus point, what's his name?

I absolutely love Pascal the Chameleon! He was one of the best things about that movie! I can't wait to see their new meet and greet home in the New Fantasyland!

Wow, all I could think about was how hard it would be to wear that much hair on your head all day long.

It was a cute movie. I believe her friend was a chameleon but I didn't recall the name.
Luckily I won't have to worry about too many princess photos. :)
Thank you!

Rapunzel is one of my all time favorites but it could just be that I'm obsessed with her hair!

Rapunzel might have a UTI.

He's a gecko but I don't remember his name.

I think poor Rapunzel needs a lot of breaks. All that hair's gotta be HOT!

I cheated and looked at Keebles' answer. :)
