Are you ready to have a great time immersing yourself into the live’s of your favorite characters? You can have some amazing experiences “playing” with the characters at the Magic Kingdom. If you just approach a character with just your Autograph Book and a simple picture pose you are missing out on so much fun. Most of the characters I am listing are only seen at the Magic Kingdom. Here are 10 Must Do Character Meet & Greets at The Magic Kingdom.
10 Must Do Character Meet & Greets at The Magic Kingdom
The Tremaine’s – The Tremaine’s hang out around Cinderella’s Carousel, they usually ride it before going over to meet guests. No Fastpasss available for meeting them. This would have to be my favorite character meet and greet. I try to visit them every time I visit the Magic Kingdom. Every interaction will be different. They are hilarious! Ask them questions about Cinderella, finding a boyfriend, the prince, and more. Ask them to sing for you. You can also meet the Tremaine’s at 1900 Park Faire. **Lady Treamaine no longer joins the sisters***
Princess Elena of Avalor and Cinderella. I would recommend getting a Fastpass for meeting these 2 princesses if they are on your must-see list. You can also go during fireworks for a lower wait time. Princess Elena is now meeting with guests at Princess Fairytale Hall along with Cinderella. Princess Elena was welcomed to the Magic Kingdom by Cinderella. She speaks Spanish, so be sure to greet her by saying Hola! (Related: Princess Elena’s Welcome Show)
Peter Pan – Peter Pan loves to talk. He is a hoot. I love the things that he says. Ask him about Hook, Tinkerbell, and Wendy. Ask him how to get to Neverland. Peter Pan does meet and greets on the side of the Peter Pan’s Flight building. Most of the waiting area is shaded. Ask a Cast Member when he is scheduled to appear.
Gaston – Gaston meets people in front of his tavern. Challenge him physically or tell him you are better than he is. Check out this cute video of a little girl’s interaction with him.
Merida – Merida has her own spot and I have learned that if you want to visit with her to get there at her spot early. No FP is available and the line gets long. I asked her about where her brothers are.
Rapunzel and Tiana – Rapunzel and Tiana meet guests at Princess Fairytale Hall, they are in the same room but you will take pictures of them individually. I would recommend getting a Fastpass for meeting these 2 princesses if they are on your must-see list. You can also go during fireworks for a lower wait time. Some ideas to spark a conversation with Rapunzel are to ask her where Pascal is, how she takes care of her hair, and mentioning Flynn. If you are a little boy or full grown guy, show her a smolder. She just loves that. My husband’s smolder was broken that day though, LOL. Tiana such a sweet princess to interact with, ask her about her beignets!
Ariel – Ariel has a dedicated spot at her grotto. You can get a FastPass for meeting Ariel. You can give her a dinglehopper, ask her about thingamabobs, or warn her about Ursula. On my next visit with her, my plan is to ask her how Melody is doing.
Tinker Bell – Tinker Bell’s new spot is super magical. You get transported by faith and pixie dust to Pixie Hollow.
Stitch – Stitch meets guests at the Flagpole in the front of the Magic Kingdom. Other than the Typhoon Lagoon and O’hana’s Breakfast, this is the only spot to meet Stitch. ***Update*** Stitch’s meet and greet is in the lobby of the Stitch ride which is currently non-operational. I am not sure how long the meet and greet will last since there have been ongoing rumors to reimagine that ride.
Mickey Mouse – A FastPass is available to meet Magician Mickey Mouse, but if you go first thing,during the parade, or during fireworks, the wait will be short. Even if there is a line, the wait is in air conditioning so it is not that bad of a wait. Though you can meet Mickey at other parks, if you meet Magician Mickey at Townhall he may play a game with you. Mickey at Townhall talks and makes for really special interaction. ***update Feb. 2018- Talking Mickey is rumored to be silenced very soon****
