    We are going to be in Disneyland the second week of May. My granddaughter was looking forward to meeting Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps but we no longer see them on the schedule. Will they be there when we are there in May or are they permanently gone?

    Dear Holly,
    A visit to the Disneyland Resort in May with your granddaughter sounds like a lot of fun!
    You'll notice the weather in sunny Southern California will be perfect to enjoy a fresh Dole Whip from the Tiki Juice Bar in Adventureland or a delicious non-alcoholic Mint Julep from the Mint Julep Bar inside New Orleans Square.
    As far as meeting and taking pictures with your favorite Disney characters, keep in mind that sometimes they have to go home and may not be at the Parks for meet and greets.
    In the case of Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps, I bet they had to make a trip to Zootopia to make sure things continue running smoothly. Plus, I'm sure Judy Hopps wanted to check on her folks in Bunnyburrow.
    That's not to say they won't return by the time you arrive in May!
    I would suggest you download the Disneyland Mobile App and check back on the days leading to your trip.
    Also, you can always check with guest services upon arrival at the Parks.
    At the Disneyland Park, Cast members at City Hall will be glad to provide you with a list of characters that will be around on the day of your visit.
    Over at the Disney California Adventure Park, you can stop by the Chamber of Commerce on Buena Vista Street and ask for the same information.
    I hope this helps. Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and have a Magical time!
