Character touring plan for MVMCP??

Hi! My family and I are going to be in Disney Dec 20-26. We are doing two MVMCP on the 20th and the 21. We are very interested in the character M&G! I was thinking one night focus on those and the next night do the parade and shows ect. We will be spending both days in MK so we don't want to spend party time with rides. I was thinking lining up for the Dwarfs at 5:30 for the fist night and the Royal couple around 6:30ish the second night. Besides that anyone have a great way to tour the characters. We really want to hit Captain Jack and Winnie the Pooh. But if we could get all the groups that Woud be great!!

As far as I'm aware, Captain Jack is not out for MVMCP

We got pics with Captain Jack outside Pirates (by stroller parking) at last MVMCP. We kept missing the pirate carolers, though . They didn't seem to adhere to the scheduled times.

We saw Jack Sparrow and the pirate carolers last year -- they were really fun.

easywdw.com had a terrific MVMCP guide last year that was a huge help in scheduling characters. It gave recommendations based on how popular each character was, what to see during the parade, etc. I would definitely take a look at that when it comes out. You could look at last year's, too -- the biggest difference should be no Beauty/Beast this year.

I would line up for the royal couple at 5:30 as well. Those two are very popular m&g's and both of those lines may be longer since you're going to the last two parties and they will sell out.

Alas, they make it easier and easier every year to come up with a touring plan for MVMCP. Especially once you take out the things you can already do during the day.

Last year we went to 7 Dwarves first, and then went to the parade, and dance party. Afterwards we went on rides etc, and took my youngest DD to see the Royal Family. Jack was out, but my kids didnt want to see him, and we did see Tiana. We wanted Wendy and Peter Pan but they cut the line off early and thats just it, no exceptions.

I'm thinking the PP just didn't know he was added last year. I haven't heard a word about him being cut.

That's correct- I wasn't aware he was out last year. Sorry about the confusion

I have not heard that anywhere. And he wasn't included in the list of "new" things the Disney rep shared when they called in response to my complaint about taking Belle/Beast out of MVMCP.

I'd love to see him back though. They really need someone else people can't see on a regular park day.
