    Few Questions

    Possably next thrusday or Friday I'm going to be doing a solo trip to the park so I can go talk with all the Characters I can and and record them wishing my sister a happy birthday who we are having a big party for. Do you guys think that I would have any problem doing that? Any suggestions on where too look and time of day to find them? Also in Mickeys house does Mickey break his silence? Thanks for any help? Also I read somewhere that they have mint julip mix that all you have to do is add water is this true?

    I thin it would be a great idea to have all the characters sign a birthday card as well, get one of the larger ones you can buy (I'm sure you can get a Disney one at the parks)... then you can have a gift from the non-face characters as well who can't speak on video!

    Probably a good idea to visit the fairies and princesses at their locations to hit them all at once.

    Re: Few Questions

    I think I've heard of an app that shows what characters are out, when, and where... has anyone else heard this or have this app or know where to get it? Also, I've heard you can ask certain CM's who/when/where they will be out also....is this true?

    I think the thought is terrific, and your sister should consider herself lucky. But it should be noted that only the face characters speak. The birthday card idea may be the go to idea here.

    I don't know if there is an app for character greets, but I'm pretty sure they're on a regular schedule. I also can guess that the best possible time to catch Mickey without a huge wait is right in the middle of town square, at the flagpole, at or before 8am. He'll be there along with the Red queen and the White rabbit, and probably chip and dale as well.

    Some apps do this, even Disney's Mobile Magic.

    It's better to get a Entertainment "Times Guide" when you get to the park, which has most of the same information those apps have.

    You can also ask at Guest Information, the wait times boards on Carthay Circle and The Hub, for more specific information. Also some Characters have handlers with them, they can give you specific information.

    Character Meals will let you visit 5-7 characters but at the Plaza Inn for Minnie and Friends Breakfast has had the most in my experience.

    Don't forget that Rupunzel gets a very long line and Flynn may or not be there. So it's good to hit at opening. Also many Princesses are on the pathways that go around the Castle like by the Wishing Well with no line, verses long line at Small World Plaza.

    If you go to Mickey's House he doesn't speak, but at the end of the movie room in the barn ask the CM about which costume you would like to see Mickey in. Band Leader, Tuxedo, Sorcerer or Steamboat Willy. It takes a possible 5 or 10 minutes more but you can usually get you choice. Overall the line is shorter to catch Mickey in a tux on the Town Square.

    You can also schedule a character to call someone to wish them a happy birthday.

    To answer your question, yes, you are correct. Technically, all the CM's have access to a special phone line where they can ask where and when a certain character will show up for meet and greets. Unfortunately, some CM's don't know about this number.

    The information is definitley on the Mobile Magic app, we used it two weeks ago while in the park to track down Alice. It looks to be sponsored by Verizon but using it isn't limited to Verizon customers. I used it on my Sprint iPhone. It is a really cool app and has a lot on in-park only features, such as specific wait times.

    I have that app and I'm with AT&T.
    I believe my future must be brighter than my past. Without that belief, I'm just waiting to die.

    Ditto, it was originally for Verizon when you had to pay but now you should be able to use it with most (I think) smartphones.

    Just downloaded it and installed it for Sprint... I think the only requirement is you have an iPhone... which is kind of a pain

    You could also make a little sign that says happy birthday (your sisters name here) and have them hold it for the camera if they cant speak

    I went to Disneyland in February and I made a little sign that said "Hi Kaylee" (for my daughter who wasn't along on the trip) and a picture of them holding the sign. She loved it!
