    My family and I are going to Disney in October. My daughters will want to meet as many characters as they can but we are staying offsite. Is there any place to see where and when certain characters will be available for meet and greets?

    Hi, Christina! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm super happy to share that you can use this guide to find fantastic Character Experiences for you and your daughters! It's going to be super handy when you start planning your daily itineraries.

    Another great tip for visitors who like to meet magical creatures and characters are character meals. At Cinderella's Royal Table, at Magic Kingdom Park, for example, your daughters will be able to meet Cinderella and many other princesses on the same meal. It's a delightful experience and a time-saver. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, at Epcot, offers a similar experience and is slightly easier to book, so it's an excellent idea to keep it in mind, too.

    Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is also a superb experience for Guests who enjoy character sightings. There are so many magical characters there that you can spend the whole night enjoying them. You can even watch the Sanderson Sisters sing live at the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular! But beware: their spell is real.

    If you'd like our help to find some extraordinary and strategic character meals for your upcoming October vacation, Christina, please, don't hesitate to come back. We will be here waiting for your next questions!

    May the magic be with you,
