    My Dh and I will be taking our DD 8 and DD 4 Nov28-Dec 4. First time for everyone!! Is there a schedule for the characters that will be present for the character meals on the days we will be there or do you have no idea until you are there dining.

    Hi, Jennifer!  There really isn't a schedule that would tell you what characters will be appearing at your character meals, but most of the meals are fairly consistent in who you will see.  Crystal Palace has Winnie the Pooh and friends, and for as far back as I can recall, you have always seen Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore.  The Garden Grill has had Mickey, Chip and Dale, and Pluto for quite some time.  Some of the other locations for character meals (like Chef Mickey's; Hollywood and Vine; and even 'Ohana breakfast) usually feature the same characters all of the time.  This is not to say that you won't encounter a change on the day you go, but whatever information you have seen about those particular restaurants probably gives a pretty good idea of what characters you might see.

    The restaurants where I have had the most difficulty pinning down who will be there are Restaurant Akershus in the Norway Pavilion at EPCOT and Cinderella's Royal Table at the Magic Kingdom.  The princesses at Akershus tend to change, and you might see any of them - including Mulan, Jasmine, Snow White, Belle, and possibly even Wendy from Peter Pan.  You will see Cinderella at Cinderella's Royal Table, but the other princesses can vary.

    Have a wonderful time!
