10 Things They Don't Tell You About Meeting Walt Disney World Characters

Fantasmic Characters

1. Character Palooza

Ever wonder where some of the rare characters went? They haven’t totally disappeared! One of the best-kept secrets at Hollywood Studios is the unofficial and unannounced character meet and greet known as Character Palooza. This 20-30 minute interaction between characters and guests is a great way to meet some of the more rare characters that aren’t out and about usually. This typically happens 4 hours before Fantasmic! begins since the determination of which characters appear for this depends on the Fantasmic! schedule. There is no way of knowing exactly which characters or at which time they will be out for meet and greets, however, Character Palooza has recently been taking place at the entrance of the park, so be sure to check in the afternoon for their arrival. It is also common for cast members to brush off questions about this meet and greet to keep crowds at a minimum.
