    My family and I will be visiting MK the third week of March. I have a 3.5 year old son who is really interested in meeting characters. We only have a one day pass with no add ons such as FP. What is the best way to ensure he gets to meet many characters?

    Hi Jessica, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question. When my little guy was the same age as yours, he absolutely loved meeting all of the Disney characters he could find, so I completely understand your little guy! 

    Even if you purchased a one day Theme Park Ticket, you’ll still be able to use Disney’s FastPass+ Service during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. All you need to do is link each ticket to the My Disney Experience profile for each Guest in your party and you’ll be able to make your FastPass+ selections up to 30 days before your visit. This will be great news for your character-loving son because you can include character experiences such as Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater

    Other great character experiences for little guys (which don’t offer FastPass+ service) at Magic Kingdom Park include: Meet Tigger and Friends near the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Meet Daring Disney Pals as Circus Stars at Pete's Silly Sideshow. Because the lines for these experiences can get long, I suggest going to visit them the moment that they start greeting Guests for the day. 

    Have a Magical Day,
