We understand that not being able to meet the characters is disappointing. Disney has done a great job, however, with making sure the characters are visible throughout the day. Magically Cinderella will appear in her carriage riding down Main St. USA waving to her fans. We believe this is a great compromise and not deter you from visiting. In fact, the characters tend to be more interactive with the guests as they ride by.
