    I've always accessed SteveSoares website for all the Disney schedules... is there a similar one for Universal/IoA so we can know ahead of time when the characters will be out and where, as well as all the shows? Kids are big character freaks and DS will flip over the super heroes.

    Thanks! :goodvibes

    I've never seen one, though that doesn't necessarily mean that don't exist. My experience is that the characters just show up and shows run on-and-off throughout the day.

    i check the park map guide for times and places for characters and show schedules.

    the scheduling does vary week to week.
    or should i say weekend.


    maybe you could ask one of the locals or one of the homies that will be going before your trip to pick up an extra map guide to send to you.

    that would give you an idea the number of shows/character events each day per week.

    you could not count on it being the same all the time but would give you a heads up on what to count on.

    i always take in the horror make up show.
    the show time varies based on the day.

    back to your question, as mesaboy stated, me too.
    don't know of any similar SS site for UO.

    I'd be more than happy to let you know about the showtimes before you arrive. I'm at the parks almost everyday. Just drop me a PM if you'd like :)

    I apologize for this post--it's pretty much wrong. Dopey me somehow missed all the times listed in the park maps I got just this weekend.

    Thanks other posters for answering the OP's question without pointing out how wrong I was. ;). :goodvibes

    hee hee... no worries!!! I'm just glad it was answered. I think as long as I can get them the morning we go to each park, that should suffice! i just don't want to miss a few of them.... it seems so much easier to plan for Disney!

    Thanks again everyone!

    Does anyone have a recent schedule they could share? Specifically looking for show times for the Star Toons show and the Madagascar characters. Thanks!

    Thanks for the past schedule! Hoping someone will be able to post one closer to my trip time (first weekend in December). Sort of off topic, but...is Donkey always "animated" at the M&G, or are there certain "showtimes" for him? I think my kids (but certainly NOT me...haha) would get a real kick (pun intended) out of that!
