    Can you book private time with a character?

    Hey there Megan!  Welcome to planDisney, we're so glad you're here! 

    Some of my favorite memories with my family are when my kids got to meet their favorite Disney characters!  Seeing their faces light up with joy is a core memory I truly will never forget, it's just such a special moment.  

    At the current time there are not any private meet and greet opportunities with the characters that you can book in advance, but I do have a few options for you!  For any character meet and greets, you will get some special time with that character with just your family.  One of my favorite character experiences is to meet the Residents of Radiator Springs in Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park.  You'll have the opportunity to meet some of your favorite pals such as Lightning McQueen or Mater!  Our family got to take a few minutes to say hi to Lightning McQueen and have him say a few words to us, and then we were able to get a few photos with him as well.  There is usually a Disney PhotoPass Photographer on-site to take pictures for you, or you could use your own phone as well.  

    Another favorite character experience is to meet the sisters of Arendelle at Anna and Elsa's Royal Welcome!  There will be nothing frozen or cold about this meet and greet full of warm hugs.  You can find Anna and Elsa inside the Disney Animation Building in Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure Park.  They will spend some special time with just your family, and there are some great opportunities for you to get both videos and photos of this special moment!  I highly recommend trying to stop by first thing in the morning when the park opens, as the line can get long throughout the day.  

    Megan, my final suggestion for you is to explore getting a Disney Visa Card, as Cardmembers receive Cardmember-exclusive Disney Character Experiences.  There is a private photo opportunity for Cardmembers in Disney California Adventure Park as well as a special Star Wars photo opportunity outside of Star Wars Launch Bay in Disneyland Park.  You definitely get a private experience and one-on-one time with the characters, which can make for some very special moments!  

    I hope this information is helpful for your upcoming trip Megan, and some core memories are made with your favorite characters!  If we can help with any other questions before your trip, please come back to planDisney!

    Have a magical day,
