At the end of last month, Miss America 2016 contestants gathered for the first time with Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. The contestants took time out from pageant duties to enjoy some of Disney’s unique brand of magic. Along the way they got to meet some of Disney’s Princesses (Belle, Merida, Tiana & Cinderella) and learn what it takes to wear a crown.
Everyone has a great time on Disney’s attractions, but I love how excited they all are to meet each princess.
The 95th anniversary of Miss America airs on ABC Sept. 13, 2015 9 p.m. ET.
