    I will be at the Disneyland parks May 2nd and 3rd, with critter country being closed will there be anywhere else to interact/get photos with Winnie the Pooh? He is my favorite character and I would hate to miss him

    Hey there Cecilia,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for stopping by with your question! 

    I am also a huge fan of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore! My kiddos absolutely love riding The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and the chance to say hi to these characters in Pooh's Thotful Spot just outside the attraction. We then usually like to follow that up with a chocolate-covered rice treat from Pooh Corner

    While there haven't been any official announcements about whether we'll get to meet these characters while the surrounding area undergoes construction, my recommendation for finding all the different character experiences is to use the Disneyland Resort mobile app!

    If you select the map pin icon in the menu bar of the app, you'll see a map of the entire resort. Near the center of the top white section of the screen, you'll likely see "Attractions" with a down arrow next to it. If you tap that and select "Characters" then the map overlay will populate with all the character meet-and-greet locations. 

    If you're looking for a specific character, I like to tap "Show List" in the top right of the screen so it's easier to scroll through and see all the different characters that are available to meet. From what I've noticed, it does update throughout the day, so if you check at night and there are no more opportunities to meet a specific character then they will no longer show on this list for that day. Therefore, I'd recommend looking earlier in the day and planning when and where you want to meet the silly old bear.

    Thanks again for your question, Cecilia! I hope you have a wonderful visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Have a Magical Day,
