Best chance to see characters?

What area or location and time is the best chance to see the Disney characters around the parks? Just going will be a complete thrill for my kids, but actually meeting the characters would blow their minds! Not to mention my husband really wants to meet Goofy! LOL

If you want to guarantee seeing some character up close try and book a character meal. Chef Mickeys if fab. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto & Donald are all there and will come to your table for photos and autographs.

When we were there, there were always really long wait lines to meet the characters at the theme parks. We did do that a couple of times but we did three character meals and we felt it was a much better use of our time (of course they are not cheap!) US Lovers (post #2) actually was a big help when we were planning. We did Chef Mickey's for dinner and breakfast at Tusker House (Animal Kingdom) and Ohana (Polynesian resort) - highly recommend them all (by the way, it was myself, DH and 10 year old DS who was not wanting to see any of the Princesses LOL).

When i was there with my daughters family during spring break two years ago we saw Mickey Mouse and 3 princesses in the theater on the right after you enter Magic Kingdom. We went first thing in the morning and there were no lines. I am not sure if the processes are still there with the new meet and greets, but would like to find out be fore we go in February.

Lunch or dinner at Akershus was a great way to meet lots of princesses if you have girls that age. It includes a picture package with one and then there are several wandering the dining room and interacting with the kids.

Can anyone tell me if the times the characters come out change? My trip isn't until May 2014 but I went to the Kennythepirate site and was wondering if I could go ahead and jot that down for my planning. Thanks
