Please note that each character can only appear for 30 minutes at any one time due to health and safety procedures. Please be aware there may be a queue to see the characters, but they do switch every half an hour to ensure you get to meet them. Why not meet one character in the morning, enjoy the rest of your day and return later in the day to meet and greet with the other character?
