    Hi, I am trying to have a plan in place when we hit the parks in April. We will be there when it is busy. How much time should I basically allot for dinners? How much time to allot for a character dinning with Chip and Dale? Just want to have an idea

    Hi Stephen,

    Thanks for writing.  You asked a great question.  I just got back from a week at Disney (during Spring Break when the parks were quite crowded) and my boys and I dined at many character meals.  On average, our meals lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes to an hour and a half, depending upon how long we lingered.  However, we got to see all the characters (and take photos and have autographs signed) at each venue within 45 minutes to an hour of arriving.

    I hope this helps!
