  1. I’m so glad I get to see Anna & Elsa at the festival of fantasy parade and friendship faire, especially in their iconic Frozen 1 costumes. I miss when they were at the princess fairy tale hall. Most of the princesses have several meet and greet locations in different outfits. Anna & Elsa are only at Epcot and they have the Frozen 2 looks there when it should be Frozen 1. I miss when I could meet them in their Frozen 1 looks. I hope they bring them back 😓

  2. I enjoy meeting the princesses. I like how I can meet Belle in her classic yellow dress at the Enchanted tales with Belle as well as her blue and white dress at Epcot. Same with Ariel in her mermaid form in her grotto and her green dress at the restaurant. I wish they’d bring back Anna & Elsa in their Frozen 1 outfits and hairstyles at the Royal Summerhus at Epcot. Or at the very least make another meet and greet where we can meet them in their Frozen 1 looks like how they did the other 2 princesses I just mentioned. I miss the Frozen 1 looks so much. They’re so iconic and way more beautiful than the new ones. Please Disney, bring back the Frozen 1 outfits and hairstyles for Anna and Elsa at the Royal Summerhus at Epcot and Frozen 3!!!
