    We have dinner reservations at the Liberty Tavern during the first week of January. Has Disney announced if Pooh and friends will be making the move to the Tavern, or should we expect another group of characters to be in attendance? Thanks!

    Crystal Place will be undergoing a refurbishment between January 3, 2010 and February 14, 2010. As an alternative, the Liberty Tree Tavern in the Magic Kingdom will have character meals during that period. We're expecting Minnie, Goofy and Chip & Dale to be there greeting guests at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    While there will not be an opportunity to dine with Pooh during your visit, you should have no problem meeting him. Pooh often greets guests in other locations in the parks. He is often at the Animal Kingdom, and I suspect that they may add a Pooh greeting near the Pooh ride during the Crystal Palace renovations.

    To make sure that you're not missing Pooh and his pals, I would go to the Guest Relations office at any of the theme parks; these are noted on the park maps. Ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. The character hotline will be able to tell you if any particular character will be in the parks on a particular day, and if so, exactly where and when the character will be there.

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.
