    How many characters can you spot at WDW? Where can I find a list of these characters and where they appear? Thanks.

    There is no "Master List" of Disney characters that appear in parks. At any given time there are possibly hundreds of possibilities you might find. The majority of these characters make VERY infrequent appearances in the parks. There are others that come out only during special events such as the evening parties in the Magic Kingdom. Some characters are part of shows or parades, but do not participate in guest greeting sessions.

    But there is a core group of several dozen characters that are easy to find and meet at WDW. Here goes:

    Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, Daisy, Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, the Beast, Mulan, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, Mary Poppins, Jasmine, Aladdin, the Genie, Prince Charming, Peter Pan, Smee, Wendy, Captain Hook, Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, Piglet, Fairy Godmother, Lilo, Stitch, Baloo, King Louie, Rafiki, JoJo, Goliath, Kim Possible, Buzz, Woody, Cruella, Alice, Mad Hatter, Handy Manny, June, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia, Drizella

    You may experience different characters on your trip. And bear in mind that this list does change with some regularity. For example, last year the Bolt movie characters could be found, but not any more. This year the characters from Up were added and in a few weeks characters from the Princess and the Frog film will be seen in the parks

    However, the characters listed above are the ones that I have seen or heard of being seen more than two or three times in the past two years. Most are currently available at regularly scheduled character meals or meet-and-greet stations.

    If there's a specific character you're looking for, you should stop into the guest services office at any of the theme parks and ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. They'll be able to tell you if/where/when your favorite characters will be appearing at the time of your visit.
