    I will be at Disneyland on 12/13 and 12/14. Will Winnie the Pooh be available for character viewing and pictures? I know Santa will be at Critter Country and not sure where Pooh will be?

    Welcome to planDisney, Ina!

    What a "practically perfect" time to visit the Disneyland Resort. There's no better place to be during the most wonderful time of the year. There'll be so much Holiday magic to experience and enjoy. Make sure you grab a hot chocolate and find a good spot on Main Street, U.S.A. to watch A Christmas Fantasy Parade. I always find that a Disney parade is the best way to get into the Christmas spirit. 

    There'll be plenty of opportunities for you to meet beloved Disney characters when you visit. You can usually meet Winnie the Pooh (and sometimes his friends) at 'Pooh's Thotful Spot' outside Pooh Corner in Critter Country. This past summer, my kids got to give Pooh Bear and Tigger (extremely long) hugs. I was able to get some really precious videos and photos. My youngest child in particular was besotted with both characters. When you arrive at Disneyland Park, simply open up the Disneyland Mobile App, tap the location symbol (the second symbol at the bottom), and from the drop-down menu, select "Characters." You'll then find all the different character greetings that are currently available. If you don't see Winnie the Pooh, check back throughout the day in case he suddenly decides to make an appearance. 

    I hope that's helpful, Ina. Don't forget to watch "Believe...In Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular in the evening. Here's a tip: to secure a good viewing spot, show up 60-90 minutes early.

    Have a great time, Ina. See ya real soon!
