    Are they any character experiences in Disney Springs?

    Hi there, Shannon! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It has been a while since we’ve heard from you, and I’m so glad you’re back and ready to make more magical plans!
    Character experiences are an incredible way to experience Disney magic with your family members, and always a must-do while on vacation at Walt Disney World! We also love Disney Springs. It has so much to offer, including world class dining, entertainment and shopping — truly something for everyone! Regarding Character experiences, however, there are not any official ones that I could find at Disney Springs. However, Disney Springs has a Calendar where they post all their exciting Special Events, and in the past they have been known to have Events that offer Character encounters! These are subject to the schedules posted, but I would recommend that you check their Calendar for the dates you will be in the area. For example, I am told that Santa Claus makes some visits during the Holiday season! Also, while not a Disney character, you can meet the Coca-Cola bear at the Coca Cola store at Disney Springs, and I am told he gives great hugs!
    Disney Springs is also easily accessible to many locations that you can encounter Characters outside the Theme Parks, and one of the best ways to do so is via Character Dining Experiences! Every Disney Resort Hotel has direct complimentary transportation to and from Disney Springs! I would definitely recommend taking a direct bus ride to Disney’s Contemporary Resort for a delicious character breakfast at Chef Mickey’s, or to Disney’s Beach Club Resort for Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe
    Shannon, I hope this information is helpful to you as you make plans for your upcoming trip this May! Please do not hesitate to come back to see us if we can help in any other ways.
    See ya real soon!
