I met the Robin Hood group 3 different times over 2 days to get these photos. Some are the result of creative cropping of images. Characters at Long Lost Friends are supposed to offer only group photos.  Continue reading Limited Time Magic: Long Lost Friends Week – Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Prince John and Sherrif of Nottingham

Long Lost Friends day one – my experience and their full schedule and locations

I arrived at the Magic Kingdom at about 8:30 a.m. ready to meet some characters that are difficult to find at Walt Disney World these days.  For only one week (January 21-27) in Town Square at the Magic Kingdom they are offering “Long-lost Friends Week.”  I had fully expected to see the exact characters that appeared but was surprised that Gideon wasn’t meeting with the Pinocchio gang.  It’s funny to me that many guests have no idea where to line up for the quickest entry from the rope.  I just waltzed right up to the rope while all the other people were forming a psuedo line behind the other section of rope.   Continue reading Long Lost Friends day one – my experience and their full schedule and locations

Update: Long-lost Friends Week character meet and greet hours are said to be 9:00 am to 2:10 pm in Town Square

As I reported to you earlier in the week, Walt Disney World’s first “Long Lost Friends Week” will take place January 21-27 at the Magic Kingdom. Disney has officially stated that the Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, The Three Little Pigs, Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow will be appearing. They promise other “surprises.” Hopefully those surprises include some that I mentioned earlier (Pinocchio group, Ludwig Von Drake and Scrooge McDuck). I could live without the Pinocchio group if it means getting some more really rare characters for a week.

What rare character would you like to see?

Limited Time Magic – Long Lost Friends Week January 21-27

Long Lost Friends week is scheduled to be at Magic Kingdom the week of January 21st-27th.

2006 - Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar.  I'm glad that these two awesome characters now appear to dance with kids in the Frontierland Hoedown (which most guests don't know exists), but in 2006 they appeared at the front of the Magic Kingdom to meet guests.
