    Hello i was wondering if there was a time table of when the characters will be available for photos and their photo location and times?

    Greetings, Amanda! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Meeting characters at the Disneyland Resort is so much fun so I'm happy to give you the run down on how it works.

    The first thing you will want to do is download the official Disneyland app. This has a Characters tab that will show you where on the map certain characters are meeting. If you toggle to the list view, you can see a list of all the characters meeting that day. This will be your go-to character schedule when you are in the parks.

    While some characters have varying schedules, there are certain spots where you can regularly meet a few friends. First is Royal Hall in Fantasy Faire. On any given day, you can meet up to three princesses here. You will wait in one queue and then journey through Royal Hall to meet all three. Next, you can almost always meet Mickey and Minnie in their respective houses in Mickey's Toontown and Tinkerbell in Pixie Hollow. Also, Anna and Elsa appear nearly all day, every day in the Disney Animation building in Disney California Adventure Park. Most of these character locations will have dedicated PhotoPass photographers stationed there to take your picture.

    Finally, one of the most magical things about the Disneyland Resort is that a lot of characters freely roam and don't necessarily have set schedules. So keep your eyes peeled because you never know who you might bump into! I hope your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is full of magic and memories!
