    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me more about the Disney Character Express. Does it run at certain times of the day like parade or does it just appear randomly.

    Also is it running all year while the 15th celebration is going because it would be lovely to see when i go in November.

    Thank you
    Lisa

    from what i can gather it comes out at set times a couple of times a day (someone correct me if i'm wrong cos i've not been yet!).

    i;d love to see it when i go in dec but from what i can gather its a bit of a madhouse when the characters get off it! x

    It takies place four times a day during weekdays, i dont know about weekends:

    Weekdays 11h45, 12h45, 13h45, 14h45
    Weekend Check at park

    It is very short and goes from Town Square to Central Palza, just an 8 minutes ride followed by a 15 minutes *mad* meet and greet.
    I have seen every day the same characters on the train: Chip n Dale, Woody, Tigro and Pinocchio - sorry i forget someone ;)

    This bit is lovely to watch, it's when the characters get down off the train that all hell breaks loose.

    Thank you all again

    I will definately give it a go too, my son is train mad so will probably enjoy the train more than characters.

    Tous en train!! :cool1:

    Love it - but the scrum for the characters is madness - perfectly in keeping with the normal character meet and greet strategy.
