    What is the best way to find character locations before we arrive. I know we can use the my Disney app while we are there. but I want to plan ahead.

    Hi Christy!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You are right that using the My Disney Experience app while at Walt Disney World is the best way to find current locations of your favorite characters.  There is also a page dedicated to character experiences on the Walt Disney World website that will be helpful to you before your trip.  

    You can also make FastPass+ reservations to meet some of them.  This is a great way to avoid long waits for any that are on your "must-see" list.

    A website that I find extremely helpful when I'm planning in advance is Kennythepirate.com (click on the character locator). I have to let you know that this is NOT an official Disney website, so the information is not guaranteed. But, it is usually pretty accurate and can give you a good idea of where to look for your favorites.  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
