Piglet really at Crystal Palace?

I saw on the WDW website that Piglet is one of the characters that one might see when dining at the Crystal Palace. My question is: is seeing Piglet a rare occurrence our is Piglet one of the characters that you are guaranteed to see?

Piglet is my fav and we've already met Tiger, Eeyore, and Pooh at DLR, so we won't make an ADR for Crystal Palace.

All four of them are always there - Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore.

We eat there on our first morning each trip, about 25 times in the past 8-9 years, and he's always there.

Crystal Palace is our favorite breakfast spot (see profile pic)and like previous poster, we go there every trip and Piglet has always been there. The character interactions are always great there, so i hope you go and enjoy it asmuch as we do.

Crystal Palace might be the only place you can meet Piglet, I'm not sure. Check Kenny the Pirate's website.

You're never absolutely guaranteed to see any character in any specific place, but he's supposed to appear there daily.

We have eaten there many times over the last few years...all three meals, including the before-the-park-opens-breakfast and Piglet was always there. In fact, we ate there twice in the past week, and saw all 4 characters: Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eyeore all showed up at the tables both days.

Oh yes, the bacon thing. We had gone for lunch several times and the first time we went for breakfast he had visited us at the table and I was stupid enough to ask him if he wanted some bacon and eggs! LIKE HELLO!! My dd even gave me a dirty look - Guess I needed some stronger coffee! LOL!

Piglet is a "regular"...now once in a blue moon, "Rabbit" may make an appearance. That's kinda fun (in addition to the 4 that are already there!)

Yes, CP is the only place at WDW to meet Piglet.

You are never guaranteed any characters for any meal at Disney, however Piglet is almost always there.
