    I will be bringing my triplet granddaughters to WDW in October for their birthday. This is their first time to WDW and they each want to meet a different character: Woody, Ariel and Tinkerbell. Where is the best place to meet them?

    A birthday for triplets, how exciting!

    You're in luck because Woody, Ariel and Tinker Bell are all characters the regularly interact with guests in the parks. The tricky thing is that since the Toontown area of the Magic Kingdom recently closed, some of the character greeting locations are in flux. So, I'll tell you where the greeting areas are now, but there is some possibility that things could change by the time you get here.

    Woody has two greeting locations. The first is in the Magic Kingdom, near the Splash Mountain attraction in Frontierland. The second is just across the path from the Toy Story Midway Mania attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Ariel can be found at the Princess Storybook meal at Epcot (reservations recommended). She also greets guests in the Magic Kingdom.

    Tinker Bell had been in Toontown, but she is now located in a garden at Epcot, behind the Mouse Gear store.

    I have two suggestions:

    - Grab a copy of the free Times Guide as you enter the park (located near the maps). This will tell you where an when the greetings will happen.

    - If you're at all confused, go to the guest relations office at any of the theme parks. Ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. The hotline will know exactly where every character will be appearing during your stay.

    Enjoy your visit!
