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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
