Where to Meet Your Favorite Characters at Walt Disney World

WOWWW

 

disney-character-locations

Whether you’re 2, 24, or 104, everybody loves to meet their favorite Disney characters. The (sometimes) long lines are worth the smiles and the memories. Some just like taking photos, while others enjoy collecting autographs and asking questions in which they’ll receive a very in-character reply. Ever wondered who you could stumble across at Disney World…or better yet…WHERE to find them? I will answer both of those questions. :)

 In addition to the characters above, I have designed a spreadsheet that you can print off to keep track of the characters you’ve met or have yet to meet. It’s still a work in progress, and it always will be as Disney World continues to grow and add new characters. There is currently over 100 meet and greet entries on the spreadsheet!

— Where to Meet Your Favorite Disney Characters —

Disclosure: Characters are subject to change. There might also be characters that aren’t on the list or aren’t scheduled for meet and greets. I am not responsible for potentially “ruining” a vacation if, for example, Snow White is scheduled to meet at Akershus, but does not appear. Characterpalooza is a great way to meet characters in training! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party have additional meet and greets that I’ll create separate posts for.

  1. This is such a great resource for vacationing parents. My boys love Jake so they would love to see him…and would probably be slightly creeped out too, to be honest. Now if the Octonauts were there….they would be so insanely excited.

  2. These are some great tips on finding characters! I lived inOrlando for years and years and I swear every year Disney makes it harder to Find characters without buying character dining -_-

  3. Wow–I can see the happiness in your little one’s eyes as she meets all her favorite Disney characters. I love how she tried to imitate the Princesses by holding out her skirt!!

  4. We don’t have kids, but my wife is a huge Disney nut and has always wanted to meet the Disney princesses at Walt Disney World. Thanks for sharing this great resource. Hopefully, it will help check off one of the entries on my wife’s bucket list.

  5. I am jealousss of all the photos. I agree with you that Disney is for everyone. I would love to have my pic taken with my favorite Disney princesses and characters.

  6. Wow so cool! I love the photos, they look like you guys had a great time! :) I would definitely love to do this one day! :) Thanks for sharing.

  7. Adorable pictures! I have never been to Disney World, but I definitely want to go there someday with my family. I know that my daughter would have a field day!
