    My family and I will be in Disney World from December 7 through December 13. I was advised by an acquaintance to experience characterpalooza in Hollywood Disney. What exactly is characterpalooza and will it take place during our stay? Thank you

    Hi Sue,

    A "Character Palooza" is an unpublished character greeting situation where typically 5-10 characters come out at once. These are often unusual characters who are rarely seen in the parks in other situations.

    This typically happens at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot. One of the main characteristics of the Character Palooza is that it is unpredictable and unpublished, you don't know which characters are appearing and exactly when it will happen.

    There is one Disney fan website that does a good job of tracking character appearances. The site has a page about Character Paloozas (cut/paste into your browser)

    He lists Character Palooza predictions through November 2014. I encourage you to check back there periodically to see if there is an update for December. Fingers crossed that you're able to find a Character Palooza during your visit!
