    It has been almost 10 years since I've been to WDW. I'm bringing my 5 y/o in February 2012 and staying at the All Star Movies resort. Do Characters still come to the resorts in the morning before we leave for the parks?

    Hi Kim!

    I'm so happy to hear you're planning your return trip to Walt Disney World! Seeing the parks through your child's eyes is such a unique and wonderful perspective! I hope you both have the time of your lives!

    While many parts of the parks will be familiar, I'm sorry to report that characters do not normally visit the resorts each morning. I'm sad to say that I missed that in the past! I wish I had seen an early morning visit from Mickey!

    There are many opportunities in the parks to meet with the Characters and grab a photo or autograph. Be sure to pick up a map when you enter the park. The meeting spots will be marked, so you'll know just where
    to visit your favorites!

    Another great way to visit with the Characters is to plan a character meal. This is a no stress way to dine and visit at the same time!

    Hope you have a great time! Be sure to let the Moms Panel know if we can help you plan any more details of your trip!
