    Visiting 12/28-12/30 and going to Donalds safari on Mon, CRT on Tue, and CP on Wed, hoping to meet/take pics w/many characters at meal times to avoid lines in the park. Who else will we be missing? I'm unsure of who exactly will be at each meal Thanks!

    Hi, Saron!  While characters are subject to change at all character dining, here is who you are likely to meet:

    -Donald's Safari Breakfast (Tusker House Restaurant):  Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Goofy.
    -Cinderella's Royal Table:  Cinderella, 2 - 3 princesses (vary by day) and depending on what time of day you are dining, you might see the Fairy Godmother.
    -Crystal Palace:  Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger.

    Of course, this just scratches the surface of the characters you can meet at WDW!   At Hollywood Studios, my kids love meeting the Pixar characters, including Buzz, Woody, Mike, Sully, and the characters from UP.  

    And let's not forget Handy Manny, Chip and Dale, Lilo and Stitch, McQueen and Mater, the list goes on and on!    I think you will have a good variety at your character dining.   You could spend your whole vacation just meeting Disney pals, so I suggest you choose a few that aren't going to be at your meals and seek those out.  Others you can wave a "hello" to and try to keep the kids moving (good luck!)  Check your Times Guide when you enter each park to see what characters will be out for Meet and Greets along with their schedules and locations.   Enjoy the holidays in WDW!
