We’re planning to visit the France and UK pavilions, and I noticed there some character meet & greets at set times. How long do they usually stay at the pavilions? I’m trying to schedule this and can’t figure out how much time to allot for this. Thank you!
I can’t remember off the top of my head, but they will cut the lines off and when we were there, the Belle line was almost full before she even started meeting. So I would queue up 15-20 minutes before she’s scheduled to appear. You’ll be closer to the front of the line and then you won’t have to worry about missing it. You can also hop from Belle to Aurora’s lines if you want to see both because they alternate greeting times.
I looked it up on Character Locator for you, and here’s what I found:
Alice (UK Pavillion) meets at 11:30, 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, 4:20, and 5:20, for 20 minutes at a time. Waits are usually in the 15-20 minute range.
Belle (France) meets at 11, 12, 1, 2:50, 3:50, and 4:50 for 20 minutes each. “Arrive at 11 or be prepared to face very long lines.”
Mary Poppins (UK) meets at 11, 12, 1, 2, 3:50, and 4:50 for 20 minutes each. It says “the line is often cut off 20-25 minutes into a set” which I don’t understand because the set is only 20 minutes, but I think the upshot is to arrive before the meet actually starts.
Princess Aurora (France - Gazebo) meets at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, 4:20, 5:20, and 6:20. Arrive a few minutes before each set.
Winnie the Pooh (UK) meets from 11:30-3:10, and 3:40-6:30. Arrive a few minutes before the meet starts.
