Last year, or in previous years, how easy is meeting the villains after their little show? I expect quite hard, but wondered if anyone had done it?

I haven't done it myself, but some friends of mine have always been cursing about it. For Maleficent the line seems to form before the show already. You need to stay at one side of the stage to have any chance. The others are easier, but they always say that this is one of the hardest things to do - and seeing they frequently do the Seven Dwarfs shoot that means something.

Yeh, thanks for this hun. We're going 25th Oct until 10th Nov, so I'm trying to get my head around things, there's a lot to research with WDW isn't there?! We haven't been since 1999 so if you have any tips please holler!

I'm going next month, ask me when I'm back.

Right now the first thing coming to my mind is: If you want to see the Frozen girls get that FastPass + ticket as soon as it's available.

The Mix 'n' Mingle is nearly always Hook, Frollo, Cruella, The Queen (I think), Queen of Hearts and Maleficent.

Petra, I know people who have already got Anna and Elsa FP+... do you mean your date is not loaded yet, or you can't seem to get a reservation? If it's a case of it should be available but isn't, then I'm almost certain that they are "sold" out, sadly. I know for a fact others have already started booking them.

I've seen pictures from Facilier at the mingle too.

Sorry for the confusing part about Anna and Elsa. I got my Anna and Elsa FP+ okay. Saw they went live and ran for the computer cause the app didn't find them. But we'll have a friend coming for the weekend now too and she can't get them at all. We've tried any trick in the book for her. Hence my recommendation to get these as soon as the 60 day window opens.

60 days for WDW hotels and DVC stays. 30 days for AP holders who seem to just be receiving the Magic Bands and the Magic Band thing for day guests seems to be starting soon. We're hoping that maybe they release more FP+ at 30 days so she can grab one then. I can't imagine the AP holders will be happy if all FP+ are gone.

And those 60 day count from your first day in the hotel, you can make reservations for your whole stay the first day. I was told it's 60 days plus 10 if you stay at a Disney hotel, but some people say they could reserve for their whole stay. We only have 8 days, so I couldn't quite check.

I'm really excited about meeting Daisy too. I love special costumes.

Yeh we're stopping off site so we wouldn't be able to get anything if they're all taken up by the 60day people, as we'll only have 30 days with our regular tickets

I have gone to MNSSHP every year since 2005 and in my experience, it's not very easy to meet the villains after the Mix and Mingle. Maleficent's line is usually formed before the show even begins. Then when the villains come down to meet, it is pure chaos. The lines get long and the villains aren't out for that long. They also don't cut the lines so you could possibly be on a line to meet a villain and not get to meet them. It's gotten to the point where I don't even try to meet them anymore.

Unfortunately, there aren't many characters in costumes. There's only Minnie, Donald & Daisy, and Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger & Piglet.
