    We will be visiting Disney World this Oct. My twins are 4 and love most shows on Disney Junior. I was thinking about doing the character dining at Hollywood Studios. About how many of the Disney Junior characters are present at the meals? And which ones?

    Hi, Kelly!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We have a big Disney Junior fan here at our house, too! I highly recommend taking your twins to see some of their favorite Disney Junior friends at the Disney Junior - Live on Stage! show at Disney's Hollywood Studios! The show features amazing puppets and themed backdrops your little ones are sure to recognize. Also, be sure not to miss the meet-and-greet opportunity held daily with Disney Junior friends Jake the Neverland Pirate and Handy Manny in the adjacent Animation Courtyard. And great news for Princess Sofia fans -- the Disney Parks Blog recently announced that the hugely popular Sofia will be joining Jake and Manny later this summer! Simply pick up a Times & Information Guide (available in the theme park) for specific show times as well as locations and times for character meet-and-greets.

    Now, on to your specific question about the Hollywood & Vine character dining experience: 

    Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood & Vine is offered during breakfast and lunch. (The dinner buffet does not feature character appearances.) Currently, there are four characters mixing and mingling at Hollywood & Vine: Jake, Handy Manny, Special Agent Oso and June (from the Little Einsteins). The character line-ups are always subject to change, so it's possible they may be a bit different during your trip in October. If you're planning on breakfast time, I recommend making a reservation prior to park opening so you can be ready to hop on your favorite attraction (read: Toy Story Midway Mania!) before the lines start building and all the FastPasses are gone for the day.

    Wishing you a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let me know if I can provide any further assistance with your vacation planning.
