    Hey Moms:)My daughter is 5 & her 2nd time going to WDW is in 6/09.Her1st when she was only 8 mo. old.I would love for her to get more time with characters than she did last timeWhere are some of the secret spots where u can get autographs & pics?

    Hi, Jinian!  Something that Walt Disney World is doing more of lately that I LOVE is making it easier to meet and greet your favorite characters without having to hunt them down through the theme parks, and spend your day waiting in line after line in the hot, baking sun to see them.

    If you go to EPCOT, you'll find Character Connection is a treasure trove for character autograph and photo seekers.  On any given day, you might see Goofy, Donald, Mickey, Chip and Dale, and Pluto all in one spot at the same time.  You get in one line, and you just go through the room, collect your autographs, take your photos, and you're done!  Disney's Hollywood Studios has a spot similar with a couple of the Toy Story characters available for autographs.

    When you arrive, just check your guide map for the character meet and great locations.  You may want to consider one of the character meals as well.  You can sit and enjoy a delicious meal and wait for the characters to come to you!  Some of the ones my family enjoys include Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom, where you can see Pooh and friends; the Garden Grill at EPCOT in the Land Pavilion for Farmer Mickey and company; or Restaurant Akershus, for the Princess Storybook dining experience.

    Have a wonderful trip!
