    Dear Panel, I was just wondering if anyone knew we are going to wdw 12/3-12/12 is there a chance we may be able to meet lighting mcqueen or is he still visiting Disneyland?. I just don't want to get my daughter excited if he is on vacation. Thank you.

    Characters and attractions are always subject to change, so I usually find it best not to get kids too worked up about something until you're actually at WDW. We once had quite the tantrum when we had promised our daughter the Country Bear Jamboree and then found that is was closed for repairs. It's always better to have a happy surprise rather than possible disappointment.

    Lightening McQueen does sometimes greet guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios. To locate Lightening, check the free Times Guide that's available near the maps at the park entrance. Another great way to find the information your daughter needs would be to go to the guest relations office at any of the theme parks. Ask them to call the "character hotline." They will be able to tell you if, where, and when any particular character will be appearing on WDW property.

    Have a great trip!
