Cars Meet & Greet
Ok... I'm in last minute planning mode and have a question that might be one a seasoned WDW guest should know the answer to but remember, I'm fairly new to this whole "going with a kid" thing.
One of the biggest check marks for this trip is to get Aaron over to the Cars Meet & Greet. He's insane over the movie and loves loves loves Lightning ("Ning") and Mater ("Mayer"). So... here's the question... I saw on All Ears that the Meet & Greet location has moved over to across from the Backlot Tour. Is there an actual "schedule" of when to expect to see the Cars there doing their thing or is it day-to-day, hour-to-hour?
When we do the Studios we tend to make it a half day thing along with Animal Kingdom (because there isn't much at either Aaron can do just yet and truly enjoy) so I want to be sure we don't plan the Studios visit in conflict with when we can see these guys.
Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World. Visited In: 1983, 1988, 1989 x2, 1991, 1992, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 (passholder), 2007 (x2 x3), 2008, 2009 (x2), 2010, 2011 (x2)

The info I have states that you can see Mater near the studio backlot tour at the following times:
10:00, 10:55 & 11:50 am; 1:30, 4:15 & 5:15 pm.
I would recommend going to the earliest one because the crowds are usually smallest (except on Extra Magic mornings).
Currently, it is just Mater out meeting. Lightning is out "racing in CA" and won't be back til mid-to-late May.
