Meeting a life sized character can be overwhelming for little ones. A great way to get your kids comfortable with the size of the characters is to head to a character dining experience before you get to the parks. At character dining your child has a chance to see the characters from a far before they meet them. There are multiple characters at these meal. So even if your child doesn’t want to meet the first character they will likely, have warmed up to the third or fourth character. Now when you head to the parks the concept of live characters is no longer novel to your child. Bring on the hugs.
