Merida Attraction?

How does the line to meet Merida work? I subscribe to toruingplans and there is not a wait time listed for Merida even though all the other character meets do have listed wait times. Can you tell when you get in line what the approximate wait time will be? What will the lines be like at 4pm on a MNSSHP day? I plan on entering the park right at 4 and heading straight behind the castle.....will the lines be be so bad that I need to plan an am trip for another day?

Not likely. I would expect the wait to be in the 40-45 minute range, and possibly less.

How is the Merida meet different from the others? It is the only character greet that does not have a listed wait time on touringplans phone app.

You wait outside the main area and are taken in in groups. Once inside, the kids can take a shot at archery or color while the patents wait in line.

I have no idea why TP doesn't list predicted wait times for it.

No, that's not true. There are plenty of M&Gs that aren't listed on the touring plans site. I just see the Town Square, Pete's Sideshow, Tinkerbell's Nook. They just list the big ones I think. They don't list, e.g. Chip and Dale in Frontierland (?), Peter Pan, etc.

When we were there @ the end of the summer (so not that busy) we didnt end up waiting in the line since the people at the front of the line guestimated that they had been there for just over an hour. Eek... this was mid-afternoon as well. As for why TP doesnt have the information, not too sure.
