    We are planning a trip in October 2016 and first time visitors! Where do I find all the extras like meet/greets, meals with characters, etc for each park? Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy!

    You can find a list of Character Dining locations online. These experiences allow you to see many of your favorite Walt Disney World characters while enjoying a delicious meal. Be sure to remember your camera, as characters will visit your table for photos, hugs, and even a bit of dinner conversation! I am thrilled to see you are planning your trip early. You have plenty of time to review your options and decide on the right dining experiences for your family. You are able to start making Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance online or by calling (407) 939-5277. These experiences are very popular and book up quickly, so remember to mark your calendar!

    For other character experiences, you can also find an extensive list online. For some of the more popular character meeting locations, you can also use FastPass+ planning to shorten your wait time.

    There are many other things to do including tours, parades, fireworks, shows, special events, and more! October is a fantastic time to visit, as you are able to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Please come visit us again if you have any additional questions while planning your family's Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Happy planning, Amy!
