    Hello! This will be our first experience to Disney world with our two little girls. Were going 12/27-12/31. To meet the characters do you have to reserve a time? I'll take any helpful advice or tools to help make this a great trip for my girls.

    Hi Amanda!

    Since you are visiting Walt Disney World during a peak time of year, I highly suggest using your FastPass+ selections on the "must-see" characters for your girls.  Anna and Elsa are the most difficult to secure a time for, so I highly recommend making this your top priority if meeting the sisters are important to your girls when choosing your FastPass+ selections at the 60 day mark (assuming you are staying on property).  If you are doing character dining, you can skip using FastPass+ on characters that you will see at the restaurant.  There are also quite a few characters that are stand-by lines only, meaning you just walk up and wait in line.  Each park will have a times guide indication the times you can meet each character or you can view the schedule on the My Disney Experience mobile app.  

    Have a magical day!
