    Can you please tell me where and when to be to meet the Toy Story gang? And are there fireworks & parades both days we're there please? (April 15th Adventure park & 17th Disneyland)

    Hello, Melissa! Wow! You'll be at the Happiest Place on Earth in just a matter of days!

    Meeting characters around the Disneyland Resort is so much fun and actually one of my daughter's favorite activities. In fact, I think one of the most magical things about the parks is that many characters freely roam, so you never know when you might just bump into one of your favorites! The best way to look up when and where characters are meeting is to use the Disneyland app. There is a "Characters" tab at the top that will show you on the map where characters can be found, or you can switch to the list view. When you click on a character's name, it will list the exact times when they are making appearances. We have met our pals from Toy Story in two different locations: Paradise Pier in Disney California Adventure Park and Frontierland in Disneyland Park. Woody, Jessie, and Buzz Lightyear are usually in an area near the Silly Symphony Swings in Paradise Pier and Woody also typically meets Guests near the entrance to Frontierland.

    As far as nighttime entertainment, you are in luck! The Main Street Electrical Parade, World of Color, and the "Remember...Dreams Come True" Fireworks Spectacular will each have nightly performances during your travel dates. Additionally, Mickey's Soundsational Parade will perform in the afternoon in Disneyland Park.

    I hope you have a magical visit to the Disneyland Resort!
