    I'm going to WDW in October. My daughters love both Ariel and Tinkerbell. Since they both open @ the same time and both have long waits which would you suggest we go to early? How late in the day can you get into their greeting lines and is that better?

    Hi Tracy,

    My youngest daughter can't wait to meet Tinker Bell when we visit in December, it's one of the top things to do on her list!

    I would definitely recommend you go and visit the Fairies first as I've heard the queues get very long, over an hour's wait, very quickly. Although Ariel's queue can often be long I've never seen it more than about 30 minutes. What I suggest you do is get to Toontown about 15 minutes before it's due to open and go directly to the Fairy meet & greet line which is in the Hall of Fame Tent. This should give you the shortest wait!

    As you enter the park pick up a copy of the Times Guide which are located next to the maps, this will tell you what time the character meets in Toontown close. Sometimes the lines are closed early due to the amount of guests in the queue so don't leave it any longer than about an hour prior to closure to join the queue.

    Personally I think that first thing in the morning is the best time to meet Tink followed by late in the evening when lots of the little children have gone to bed. Other good times to try are either during the 3 O'Clock parade or at the peek dinner times of 5 to 8pm.

    Have a magical trip,
