 Meet your favourite Wiggles characters Dorothy & Wags!*

Free with Paid Admission to the Expo!*

*How to meet Dorothy the Dinosaur & Wags the Dog from The Wiggles: To meet our special guests, all you need to do is ask for a complimentary “Meet & Greet Ticket” when you enter the expo and present your prepaid admission ticket, or ask for it when you purchase your admission ticket expo at the door on either the Saturday or the Sunday. The “Meet & Greet” tickets are free, but because Dorothy and Wags can’t stay in the “Meet & Greet Zone” for several hours in a row (even they need a break!), they’re available at three (3) times throughout the day, on both Saturday (April 13) and Sunday (April 14). The times available are listed below. Please note: there are limited number of “Meet & Greet Tickets” available for each appearance, and are given out free, on a first-come, first-served basis. Only your child needs a “Meet & Greet Ticket” – parents do not need a “Meet & Greet Ticket” ticket to enter the “Meet & Greet” line with their child. You can also see them in the “Meet & Greet Zone” when they visit with guests.

Saturday, April 13 at 10:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. & 3:00 p.m.  

Sunday, April 14 at 10:00 a.m., 12:00 a.m. & 3:00 p.m. 


LITTLE RAY’S REPTILES MAIN STAGE AND MEET & GREET WITH THE ANIMALS AT 1:00 P.M.
