Do you or your kiddos love Disney princesses? Then you’re really going to love the first-ever World Princess Week, which kicks off August 23rd. It’s part of Disney’s 15-month Ultimate Princess Celebration, which spotlights “the courage and kindness of the Disney heroines.” And you don’t even have to go to a Disney park to get in on the fun.

According to Good Morning America, here are some of the festivities you can enjoy during World Princess Week:

Call a princess – Fans of all ages can dial up a Disney Princess on The Ultimate Princess Celebration Hotline. Callers can listen to five all-new recordings from Disney Princesses by dialing 1-877-70-DISNEY. The hotline launches on August 23rd with messages from five princess characters.

Watch a new YouTube series – Disney is launching a new series called “Courage and Kindness Club.” It features Disney Princesses showing how families and fans can be kind and brave in their own daily lives.

Read a new book – Disney is also introducing new titles in honor of World Princess Week, including a rom-com reimagining of “Cinderella” called “If the Shoe Fits.” There’s also “The Disney Princess Cookbook,” with 50 kid-friendly recipes and “12 Days of Princess,” a holiday-inspired picture book.

Visit Walt Disney World – If you do head to Disney World next week, there’s a new Princess Tiana-themed playground at EPCOT as part of their International Food and Wine Festival.
