characters-timeguides

I'll be honest in the past characters weren't a top priority and we have never really saught them out. We instead did character meals to get pics and autographs. Last trip we decided to get some autographs from characters in the park as we saw them. Next trip I think we're on more of a hunt seeking certain characters. I see they produce a times guide to see when characters are out. How far in advance to they produce these? Is it something I will have to get while there or are there general time guidelines that don't vary so I could plan ahead before arrival? (ex, alladin 2pm on weekdays) Planning I think would be key to be efficient. while we are on a hunt this time I don't want it to consume our day. Any info would help.

Check out kennythepirate.com....his site has times and characters at each park. It's great and has what you need.

Those times are released internally on Thursdays, Kenny and wdwent both do a great job keeping their sites updated with weekly changes.

Most character locations see little change from week to week, outside of the standard park hour changes. However, sometimes there are random one off changes that could shift a set 5-10 minutes.

Be aware though, characters are seeing lots of shifting; all parks just saw some recent changes and all will see more over the next couple of months.
