    what are your suggestion to be able to meet all the Characters at Disney and still be able to hit most of the rides?? Certain times better then other to meet the Characters?

    Hey Chuck!  We absolutely love seeing the characters at Walt Disney World.  A great way to see several characters at once and not miss prime riding time is to make reservations for character meals.  We particularly love reserving a character breakfast as early as the restaurant opens.  Several restaurants open before the theme parks do, so we are not losing any time in the parks while having breakfast.  

    Tusker House at Disney's Animal Kingdom happens to be my favorite character meal.  You can meet characters like Donald, Mickey, Goofy and Daisy Duck while enjoying a great meal.  Tusker House boasts the typical breakfast fare with some unique items as well!  The food is great, my favorite breakfast by far.  Cape May Cafe also has a wonderful character breakfast that I love.  Other options for character meals include Chef Mickey's, Cinderella's Royal Table, Akershus, Crystal Palace, Garden Grill, Garden Groove, Hollywood and Vine and 1900 Park Fare.  

    If you have booked FastPass+ times for your vacation, another option would be to see characters first thing in the morning.  Epcot's Character Spot is a great place to see several characters at one time.  We always head straight there when Epcot opens and hardly ever have a wait time more than 5 minutes.  

    Have a great vacation, if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
