    Is there any particular timing to meet and greet (get autographs) of Disney characters?

    Hello there Prashanth!

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. I'd be happy to help!

    One of the things I love most about Disneyland Resort is the chance to stumble upon Characters all over the parks. My family has snapped some of our favorite impromptu selfies with Alice and The Mad Hatter as we've spotted them roaming Fantasyland, and though I've yet to see the bounty up close and personal I've seen videos of The Mandalorian and Grogu roaming Black Spire Outpost on Batuu as well. 

    Though surprise encounters are always an exciting treat, you'll be able to find scheduled Character appearances using the Disneyland Mobile App. Use the location icon at the bottom of the app (second from left) and select "Characters" from the drop down list at the top of the screen. I like to select "Show List" at the top right of the screen to access an alphabetical list. You can even filter by park to find your favorite pals. Once you've found a Disney friend you'd like to meet, click their name to pull up a list of their upcoming scheduled appearances as well as location.

    Mirabel is a family favorite so we'll be using the app to locate her on our next visit. I'm hoping she can share a little bit of that Casita magic with us! Disney Parks Blog also recently announced that Ariel from the live-action "The Little Mermaid" will be greeting guests at the parks this summer. I can't wait to see what "whozits & whatzits" she has to share from her latest adventures.

    Keep in mind that not all Characters may be able to sign autographs during scheduled appearances, and may sometimes need to cut their visits short even if a line of eager fans awaits. When you arrive for a schedule appearance a Cast Member should also be available nearby should you have any questions. 

    I hope this helps, Prashanth. Stop back and visit us again with more planning questions.

    Wishing you magic and memories,
