One of the greatest parts of visiting Walt Disney World in Orlando is getting to meet all of the awesome characters that have made the Disney movies we love absolutely great. Those characters tend to be very busy however so sometimes it is very hard to catch up with them and meet them. Well, I am here to help you out with that process. I have done my research and I have found that there are a few spots throughout the park that you are more likely to see some of you and your kids favorite characters and you will be able to meet and take pictures with them.

5 of the Most Popular Places to See Characters at Disney World

  1. At the Entrance: If you get to the park close to opening time, you just might catch some of the characters you want to see. Not always, but sometimes they are hanging out up front to greet the guests arriving. Be sure to get there early so that you don’t miss out on that early time experience.
  2. Toontown: Toontown is where Mickey and Minnie’s houses are so it is guaranteed that you can find at least the famous couple, Mickey and Minnie there. I mean, you just cannot go to Disney and not meet Mickey and Minnie, it would be wrong.
  3. Fantasy Faire: Fantasy Faire is where you will find a lot of the Disney princesses. They tend to hang out around here and if you are looking forward to meeting any princesses, this is where you are most likely to find them.
  4. Dining: If you want a close and personal experience, I would highly recommend booking a Disney character dining experience. This is an extra fee but it is so worth the one on one experience that you get to actually talk to and meet with some of your favorite Disney characters.
  5. Uncommon Characters: If you are looking to meet a little bit more uncommon characters, you can find Gaston in Belle’s Village or sometimes you can find the Fairy Godmother at the Cinderella Wishing Well Statue! The lines to meet the most common characters can be really long, so meeting some of the less common characters can be in your best interest in the meantime.

If you want to get the most out of your experience and meet as many characters as possible be sure to check out some of these common hot spots. It isn’t always guaranteed that these characters will be in these exact spots every single time, but you can commonly find them here and your chances are pretty good!
