The characters meet in the hotel lobby in the morning, there's normally a board displaying which characters are there each day. It will just one be one character per day and from our experience the queues can be really long so we normally skip this and go to EMT instead.

Yeh EMT deffo sounds the better option.

When doing DLP is best to dedicate one day to each of the two parks ? Or do the two each day etc

Yes! Minnie & Mickey in their Mexican attire was only new in 2017 as frontierland was all decorated like the Mexican Dia de los muertos day, it was amazing as Coco was just about to be realesed into the cinema.
All the other meets where scheduled too. We had lunch in inventions on Halloween itself & all the characters where in halloween costume!

As they are only a 5 minute walk apart it's really easy to swap between them. We will normally do a morning in one park and then the afternoon in another. WDS generally closes earlier than the main Disneyland Parc.

I think we will just do that and then try book the brunch and use our credit on Sunday for the lunch toward it and pay the rest then ourselves. Im trying not to be too extravagant this trip and thats why the free dining helps. We spent a fortune on food in wdw at Christmas lol and we did dinner in Cinderella castle for my dd2 fourth bday wen we were out there. We did lilo and stitch breakfast and also breakfast with Rapunzel Ariel and the two princes as well as Crystal Palace and bibbidi bobbidi boutique haha so I deffo can only afford to do one big character meal lol. Thats prob me getting confused I prob read u can meet the characters in the hotel rather than breakfast. Where abouts in the hotels is it ? The reception ? And is it many characters or just usually one or two. I wouldnt want to miss EMT though 😩 we deffo wanna squeeze in as much as we can when there. So Im gonna try plan really well. I feel we got to do everything at least once that we really wanted to in wdw this Christmas despite it being busy. So hoping itll be the same in DLP! Ill try and plan really well lol.
The restaurants included on the plan are completely covered, including a soft drink.

Yeah, it's one character. I think usually like one of the main ones, like goofy, etc. There's a photo point in the reception area.

I think you'll fit everything in! Plan to do what you really want to do first, then everything else is a bonus.

Sounds like you had a blast at WDW. DLP is nowhere near as big in the sense that everything is within walking distance of everything! Though apparently, the main park is actually bigger than Magic Kingdom. X

I like to do them separately, though as someone else said, they're so close together you can park hop.

Studios, once you've done EMT (Crush & Ratatouille are recommended in this time) you can sometimes have done everything quite early in the day! Depending on crowds, of course. But I do like to concentrate on the Disneyland Park for a whole day.

After doing everything you want, you can weigh up your options for doing other stuff outside if your plan, or doing all the great things again! 😁😁 x

Im going to have to research what rides r in which park and plan well lol. Is the fast pass system much use in dlp? The wdw one and emh at Christmas was a life saver we had done everything we needed so then could just meet characters and watch parades the rest of the day but I no dlp use a diff system for fast pass.

As long as I do any rides which are diff to wdw Im happy Im more about meeting the characters and the exp of that with dd2 whereas my eldest will want to meet some characters but her and hubby can head off and do rides if we r queueing for characters etc. Save time too
