Sofia the First- Coming to a Disney Theme Park near you?

First off, my daughter is in love with the Sofia the First series. She loves to dance around and sign the "I'm not ready to be a Princess" song. It's such a cute show!

Princess Sofia is hot, hot, hot right now. Move over Kate Middleton!

 My husband sent me an email with a link to some gifts for our children for Valentine's Day- one was Sofia the First's amulet necklace on the Disney store website. They had a tiara, and Sofia the First dress. Notice the word had. We went back the next day to buy it, and it was SOLD OUT! A $9.99 necklace is now being sold for $30 on Ebay and $40 on Amazon! Um no... I'll think I'll just pick up a similar one from Etsy for half the price!

Everyone wants to know- when will Sofia appear in Disneyland or Walt Disney World? Well, I don't think you'll have to wait too much longer!

As I have mentioned before, Princess Sofia and Doc McStuffins (my daughter's two favorites... I can't wait to go!) will be appearing in the Disney Junior- Live on Stage! show in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, starting February 15. Sorry if your kids were a Little Einsteins or Handy Manny fan, because they are the shows getting the boot!

But what people really want is a chance to MEET Princess Sofia in the flesh!

And for that.. all I can say is soon! They already have the character made- she first appeared at the Christmas parade in Walt Disney World. They also have Disney Junior characters at the Hollywood & Vine meal in Hollywood Studios-but no Sofia the First yet.

I can also see her being placed in Fantasyland at Walt Disney World.... but all I can say right now to those Sofia fans-hold on! It's obvious she's quite the popular character- example A is her merchandise selling out- and Disney will want to expand her brand. It's just a matter of when. My hunch is she'll be out in full force before the summer busy season hits.

As always, I'll let you know when Princess Sofia hits the Disney theme parks, and you can meet her in person. Part of my Disney trip planning is making sure you see your favorite characters with the least amount of time waiting, and Sofia will be no different.
