[QUOTE=mousemom;1086123]Yeah, it was unusual for us to have that happen there. We have been there almost every trip and this was the first time that happened. We got seated on the left side of the restaurant this time,usually we sit on the right. I don’t know if that had anything to do with it or not. Yes, they did do the parade while we were there. We even waited 10 extra minutes to see if they would come by but they never did.[/QUOTE]
You should know, as an experienced diner, to look into the other dining room and see where the characters are. That’s usually the best way to gauge if you need to talk to the wrangler before it gets too late.
I don’t mean to sound like I’m scolding you. I guess it’s all just second nature for me because I’ve done so many character meals.
It shouldn’t make any difference which dining room you’re in.
As I’ve said in other threads, I’ve even seen Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet playing in the central reception area and sometimes even into the buffet serving area when the crowds have been thinning out and they are able to make a couple quick rounds to say hi to whoever is left plus put on a little show.
