Touring Tips

Kids love to meet characters, and many are obsessed about getting as many autographs as possible. Disney facilitates this by selling autograph books and having a character "handler" manage the greeting queue. Go very early, very late, or during a parade to minimize your wait. Also, characters that are a bit off the beaten path (for example, at Rafiki's Planet Watch or near Flame Tree Barbecue) tend to have shorter waits.
