I guess that is part of the "exclusivity" that makes Disney so special. But I feel sad for the thousands of kids who won't get to meet the character they loved from the movie because their parents can't afford to devote 5 hours of vacation time to standing in a line, or who were not smart enough to schedule a time to greet a character 2 months in advance.
And i guess this is what separates the Disney-lovers from the rest of us. Although in this case, isn't Disney all about doing everything it can for the guests? And wouldn't it be great for the guests if they didn't have to wait so long for something that is pretty inexpensive. A company that would build a $100 million dollar ride, it seems they could spend another $100,000 a year for two costumes and a couple of low-wage character actors.
