Meeting characters in Magic Kingdom: A few titbits
There are over thirty characters whom you can meet in Magic Kingdom, including the Fab Five, the Disney princesses, and many other new Disney friends. However, you must remember that not all character meet-and-greets will be as interactive as the others.
The characters in Magic Kingdom might also have other obligations for which they have to move about. I
f your luck favors you, you can have a gala time interacting with your favorite characters in Disney World.
The more popular meet and greets have a fixed schedule. Some characters’ appearance time is in three slots: 9:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 3:30 pm.
In these cases, you must stand in the queue at least fifteen minutes before the slot starts. Otherwise, once the maximum interaction limit per character exceeds, they cut off the line!
Suppose you have crossed borders to be in Orlando just to meet Cinderella. In that case, nothing can be more unfortunate than getting cut off at the last moment.
