    I will be visiting Dec with my 4yr old girl. I know were are going to have to do all the meet and greets and am just wondering how much time that is going to take up. We also want to do Epcot and AK is a 3 day hopper enough or to much??

    Hi Crystal!
    Watching your daughter giggle and smile as she meets her favorite characters makes any wait seem worth it (after the fact anyway) :)
    Keep in mind that there are many character meet and greet opportunities at the parks (most are scheduled versus random nowadays) and you may spend a good deal of time waiting depending on the length of the queue or how long the character has already been out (they take many breaks, although they are short). The lines move fairly quick, but depending on the character, you may wait as long as 15-20 minutes for some, and upwards of 30-60 minutes for others (Mickey, Buzz and Woody, etc.). The good news is that you are going in December and crowds should be very manageable (as long as it's not Christmas week).
    I do not think a 3-day hopper is too much, but am not sure what to recommend as you do not mention your length of stay. If you want to send me a quick note back, I can certainly elaborate for you.
    I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical (and character filled) vacation!! :)
