Only at Epcot can you tour the world and meet some of your favorite Disney characters all in an afternoon. A large cast of Disney and Pixar characters can be found throughout the entire park. If a character is associated with a country, it is very likely that you will be able to find them there. So look out for Belle in France, Mary Poppins in the UK, and Mulan in China.

EPCOT offers two ways to interact with characters: Meet & Greets and Sightings.

Character Meet & Greets are back at Disney World. When guests get their picture taken with a character, they are now allowed to hug and get autographs. PhotoPass photographers will now also take a picture with your phone if you’d like.

Character Sightings are similar to meet and greets, but they are distanced and do not include autographs or hugs. These are chances to see characters as you roam around the park, and they really add to the atmosphere. Right now EPCOT only has one regular sighting, but other characters are bound to pop up here and there.

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 one of Disney’s photographers to take a picture with your phone. You are also always welcome to take a selfie, which is your best option for sightings.
