    Last minute questions.

    I will be heading to WDW next week with my family. Before we go however I have some last minute questions.

    1. How long is it taking for peoples luggage to get to their resort hotel using Disney's Magical Express?

    2. We came to WDW in 2003. I was wondering if there have been any float changes to any of the parades since 2003?

    3. When we came to WDW in 2003 I got a lot of character autographs. However there are some that I do not have. Has anyone seen any of these characters that follow in the past couple of months?
    Conniesaurus, Darkwing Duck
    Elastigirl, Esmeralda
    The 3 pigs, Figment
    Frollo, Frozone
    Huey, Dewy
    Louie, Jane
    John Smith, Kronk
    Launchpad McQuack, Little John
    Maleficent, Mary Poppins
    Meeko, Pocahontas
    Scrooge McDuck, Shang
    Sheriff of Nottingham, Jimminy Cricket
    Brer Fox, Bullseye
    Donald, Green Army Men
    Mr. Incredible, Kuzco
    Milo, Mike and Sully
    Ariel (walking), Mickey (not dressed in Toontown type clothes)
    Mushu, Nemo
    Terk, Abby Mallard
    Big Bad Wolf, Carnotaurus
    Chicken Little, Clopin
    Stromboli, Tarzan
    Thumper

    4. And finally, is anyone planning to line up early for the Pirates of the Carribean Grand Re-Opening?

    Thanks for answering.

    most people are reporting the luagge getting there shortly afterwards (within an hour). Disforums has alot more posts on this one. Most people are saying its not an issue, only any waiting in the queues (usually about 30mins total) to get on the buses at the airport

    BBWolf is in the spectramagic parade, but I didn't see him elsewhere.. same for the pigs.

    Ariel is in the grotto, but on a rock. Doubt you'll see her in 'human' form.

    Donald was in the innovations character meet in Epcot (but that cast revolves)
    Brer fox was at splash mountain's exit.
    Bullseye may have been in Frontiertown past the country bears (along with jesse)
    Mary Poppins was in the character meet in Toontown (revolve cast)

    Re: Last minute questions.

    Brer Fox has been near the restrooms at Splash Mountain from time to time. He seems to be getting more frequent.

    Darkwing Duck is extremely rare, but around from time to time.

    the Incredibles and Frozone are common, usually in the animation studio at MGM. I would love to see Kronk but I don't think he's out anymore, however with the release of Kronk's New Groove and the new show Emperor's New School, him and Kuzco may show up again. Most of the characters you named are still there, but extremely rare.

    Have you faced the Yeti?

    Re: Last minute questions.

    1. They are getting better at it, but it still may be up to 2-3 or more hours AFTER you get to your resort before your luggage arrives, so if you need anything when you get to the hotel, be sure to bring it on as a carry on.

    2. Nothing really has change float wise, but the parades are still fun to watch.

    3 (i think the other two have answered this better then I could)

    4. Really no need as it might be open as soon as you get there as they are now doing soft openings of the attraction
    Thank You for dropping by my post. I do hope you enjoyed your stay....

    Re: Last minute questions.

    I have a WDW question, if you east coast experts don't mind...

    At DL, the FastPass window is 1 hour, however, as long as you enter the queue after the starting time on your FP you can basically use it anytime. In other words, they're not sticklers on FP return time as long as you come after, not before, your return time. Is it the same at WDW?

    Correct.. they will let you on regardless of the end-time.

    Re: Last minute questions.

    You can find Jiminy Cricket and the other Pinocchio characters around the Italy pavillion at Epcot. I've seen Sherrif of Nottingham in Town Square at MK.

    Re: Last minute questions.

    1. When my cousin flew in she said it took them about an hour and a half to get from the airport to the hotel.

    2. Don't know sorry.

    3. I am only answering the ones I know we have encountered.
    Elastigirl - Her and the rest of the Incredible Clan (minus the kids) were at the Animation Building at the end of the tour in MGM.
    Figment - He has his own room that you can visit him at the Journey Into the Imagination building in Epcot, ask for greet times.
    Frozone - He was with the other Incredibles in the Animation building in MGM.
    Mary Poppins - Mary Poppins was in her native country inside one of the shops in Great Britain.
    Meeko, Pocahontas - This was so random for us but her and Meeko were both in that little walkway area between the Christmas store in Liberty Square if you star walking towards Crystal Palace in MK.
    Green Army Men - We met him at Al's Toy Barn, along with other Toy Story characters in MGM. It's towards the back behind Muppets 3D.
    Mr. Incredible - See Elastigirl.
    Milo, Mike and Sully They are in MGM Studios.
    Ariel (walking) We were able to see Ariel in her human form at Norway in Epcot for the Princess meal.
    Mickey - A little known place that we always go in MGM on Mickey Ave is Fantasia Mickey, he's my favorite Mickey so we always go there for Mickey photos because there almost NEVER a line.
    Chicken Little - I haven't verified this but I heard he is also in the Animation building.

    I picked these characters because when I was at WDW in 2003 I got most of the popular characters.
