For young guests, the chance to meet their favorite characters will be a highlight of their Walt Disney World vacation. If you want to meet classic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, and Belle, Magic Kingdom should be your first stop. The character interactions here range from traditional meet and greets to interactive attractions to character dining, where guests buy a special meal that has a cast of characters come visit each table.

Magic Kingdom has Town Sqaure Theater in Main Street, Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus, and Princess Fairytale Hall set up as permanent meet and greet attractions, where guests can visit the characters pretty much all day. Other characters will make appearances in the different lands of the park throughout the day, and these character appearances can change daily. So it might not be guaranteed to find Stitch in Tomorrowland for example.

Tip: Check the times guide or the Walt Disney World app to see an up to date list of which characters are appearing during you day in the park.

Tip: You don’t need PhotoPass to get pictures with the characters. While PhotoPass can be a great enhancement to your trip, you can ask the cast member to take pictures with your camera or phone.
