    Hi, we are visiting Disney next week and I have a question...Where is the best place to see the characters and get pictures if you are not doing the breakfasts?

    How exciting that your Walt Disney World Vacation is just one week away, Crystal!  I know you must be getting super excited!  Rest assured, there are many Character Greeting Locations throughout the theme parks for photo opportunities and autographs. I would recommend picking up a Park Map and Times Guide when entering the parks for up to date Character Greeting Times and Locations. In Magic Kingdom, be sure to visit Town Square Theatre to meet Mickey Mouse and several of the DIsney Princesses. Merida from the Disney-Pixar Brave is also available in Magic Kingdom at the Fairy Tale Garden. This is just a small sampling of the Disney Characters that you can meet in Magic Kingdom. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, a popular Character Greeting is the Toy Story Friends at Pixar Place; whereas, the Stars of Cars 2 can be found at Team McQueen Headquarters near Streets of America. The fan favorites, Phineas and Ferb, are usually meeting guests near Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano and Stars of Disney Junior can be found in Animation Courtyard. In Epcot, visit the Epcot Character Spot for a chance to meet Mickey and his friends. Many of the Disney Princesses can be found in the World Showcase at Epcot and Chip and Dale are most often seen stirring up trouble Outside Innoventions West. Unfortunately, I do not have room in my answer for all of the many Character Greeting Locations located in all four theme parks. If you would like to write me back with specific parks in mind that you will be visiting and which Disney Characters you are more interested in meeting, I can better point you in the right direction. We were at Walt Disney World in late May and I saved my Times Guides. I do want to add that Character Greeting Times and Locations are subject to change. Sending pixie dusted wishes your way that you get to meet minnie Disney Characters and have a magical time in doing so, Crystal!
    Happy Planning,
