    Question Finding characters.

    I seem to always have trouble finding Peter Pan, Hercules, Mary Poppins, and Bert. Is it possible to ask at guest services in the park when they will be out and where?

    Any CM that accompanies a character in the parks and has the "Ask Me about Characters" button should carry a schedule of all the characters, their schedules and locations with them.

    I almost always see Hercules in the Hollywood Back lot area in DCA. Usually at the end of the street before you turn to go to ToT.

    Hercules I know can sometimes be found in the Drawn to Magic show. I also know that Mary Poppins can be found on Main Street. I guess what I'm looking for is more of a specific time and place you know? But I will hunt down a character host next time I'm there. The reason I ask is that my uncle (he's 4, it's complicated) got a new Peter Pan stuffed doll and he wants Peter Pan to sign it.

    Yeah, we saw Hercules there during our T-Day trip.

    We saw mary Poppins and Bert wandering around the Hub and Main St during the same time.

    We saw Peter Pan during our dinner at Goofy's Kitchen, but not at the Park that trip, but we have seen him running around DL in the past.

    Good luck!

    I know Peter Pan is at Goofys Kitchen alot but I don't have the ability to go there right now so I'm gonna have to be on the hunt in the park for him.

    Maybe if you can't find him in the Park, you can go over to Goofy's Kitchen and just ask them if PP is "working" and get permission to have him sign it.

    Hurcules is always in the DCA backlot, The Fantasyland characters are always out really early in the morning usually on Main Street. The last couple times I have seen Mary Poppins and Bert were right outside the Tour booth and in the Coke Corner.

    Good idea I thought of that as well. I'm trying to get it signed for him since he's having surgery soon (cochlear implant). I also adore Peter Pan so I don't mind haha.

    I normally see Peter and Wendy both in the morning near the main gates, usually closer to City Hall. Not at opening but about an hour or so after the park opened.
    Most often found at a theme park

    I see peter pan almost everytime I go, he is usually near astro orbitor. there are some restrooms there and a CM entrance that characters are always poping out of. I guarentee wait 10 min and you'll see Peter and some princesses for sure.

    Find a friend that's a CM (or look for one that has a yellow piece of paper in their back pocket), they are given schedules of everything for the day including where to find the characters.

    The reference guides only give the times for scheduled photo ops and the princesses who are always around the castle. All others are the luck of the draw. I used to see Peter and Wendy along with Alice in Wonderland characters around Tomorrowland.

    Peter is a tough one to find - we need his signature in a book and even when the CMs call and we get a time and location - he often doesn't show.

    As much as I think your uncle deserves a signature - going to Goofy's Kitchen to get one without paying is not the best approach. I would go to City Hall and plead your case there.

    Re: Finding characters.

    You can also ask the person at the ride board for times and location - that's how I met Peter Pan on my birthday a few years ago.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
