Our recent visit to Character Palooza

A recent visit to Characer Palooza at Hollywood Studios

Character Palooza is an unpublished character meet and greet that takes place at Hollywood Studios.  Here’s the article I wrote on Character Palooza a while back with more information.

We dropped in on Saturday afternoon and saw the Streets of America abuzz with meet and greet action.  It’s funny how many people don’t know this exists and just stumble upon it.  I’ve observed recently that the summer appearance can vary from 5:55pm to 6:10pm, so arrive a few minutes early!

Our goal Saturday was to ride Expedition Everest and Dinosaur and take part in the Dinoland Dance Party at Animal Kingdom, then hop over to Hollywood Studios to take in Character Palooza and the new Rock Your Summer Side Dance Party.  We succeeded at everything except Dinosaur which went down while we were there.

We arrived at Character Palooza and Jordyn was hot and tired and was going to sit on the steps and wait on Debbie to meet some of her favorite characters…until she saw Max!  In the same day Jordyn got to meet Mushu and Max for the first time, so she was pretty happy.

Meeting some characters at the Magic Kingdom with my little girl

My little girl and I set out to test some Touring Plan ideas for the Magic Kingdom today and met some great characters along the way.  If you’d like to see the results of our test, just check out my Facebook page.

We were the first people at the rope, but didn't run.  We still ended up being the first guests of the day.  It's still silly that they make you wait 15 extra minutes for no real reason.  They chatted about arrows and Princess lessons.

Disney Princes appear with their Princesses for Valentine’s Day at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World

UPDATE:  I have friends who reported waits in excess of 165 minutes for Flynn Rider and used Fastpass+ to meet them and it took them 90 minutes!

Some of Disney’s most popular Princes made a special appearance today to celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Magic Kingdom.  It was kind of funny, because the Cast Members were either being really coy about the experience in an attempt to keep the somewhat surprise or they had no knowledge who would be available.

Upon reaching the TTC, they had a bunch of pretty red and white Valentine’s Day balloons.  Most of them were totally gone by lunch.
