Port arrival -- character in terminal

One more question -- due to late booking with military discount had to get 12:00 arrival time. In the past we had one of the first arrival times and always a character picture (probably one of the best due to the "magic" seeing the kids reaction). So do they stay out there for most the afternoon? You all said I will have to wait if I go early and with a 3 year old easier to stay at hotel

Last time we sailed we had a PAT of 12:30 and arrived right about then. There were characters in the port when we arrived and until we boarded. I didn't see any indication that it was going to stop any time soon.

Yes usually Characters stay in the Port all afternoon. When we arrived at midday, Pluto and Goofy were rotating at Port.

Not A Problem

Terminal. Opens 10:30 they do not check PAT to enter. Not going to say if you check in what your boarding number will be but you can get picture done. It is tracked through facial recon. software.

Video attached.

If the terminal is very busy, you might be held outside until it clears out a little. Several people have reported this, especially when the terminal first opens
