Where to Find Your Favorite Characters at Walt Disney World

Interacting with Disney characters is one of the most memorable experiences guests can have at the Walt Disney World Resort. Each park at the resort has a selection of characters available for meet-and-greets. Guests can get their photos with the characters and sometimes have them sign an autograph book. With so many characters available to meet, it might seem overwhelming. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of all current character meet-and-greets and their locations at Walt Disney World.
