 How to take part in Character Palooza at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

One of the best character surprises is often referred to as Character Palooza (Characterpalooza), Pop-up Surprise or the Fantasmic! meet.   Because it is an unpublished meet, there is usually a short wait for some great and often rare characters.  This meet takes place out doors and can be canceled with the threat of inclement weather.

Where does Character Palooza take place?

It’s on New York Street in the Streets of America in Disney’s Hollywood Studios backlot.  It’s could also be found in front of Lights, Motors, Action

When will Character Palooza occur during my trip?

Update:  I removed the dates and I’ve added links to my Crowd Calendars that include the actual times, so I don’t have to answer the same questions repeatedly.
