Meet Disney Characters

One of the most wholesome parts of visiting a Disney park is meeting your favorite Disney characters but what if you are not planing to visit a park, can you still meet them? The answer is YES!

Whether you are a local or are visiting Florida for any other reason than going to Walt Disney World, you can still get that magical experience by meeting some of your favorite characters outside the parks. A great place to find them is restaurants located at some of the hotels.

If you are lucky, you might encounter the “Caravanning around the world” bus driving around the resorts, this one is a bit tricky to find since they don’t have set times or locations. So keep your eye out to see if you can spot this big bus!

So meeting Disney characters outside the parks is totally possible! We hope more dining locations are added to the list soon, until then enjoy these fun restaurants!
