    Good morning. We are in process of planning our trip next year. My son really wants to meet Jiminy Cricket. Is he only out on Earth Day or is he out days before as well. Also is party for the planet only on Earth Day.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    Your son and I definitely have something in common because I would love to meet Jiminy Cricket at Walt Disney World Resort. He is one of the rarest characters to make appearances there so it would be really special to see him and snag a picture. You've obviously already done some great research because he did appear this year at Disney's Animal Kingdom to celebrate Earth Day, which is also the birthday and anniversary of the opening of that particular park! At the moment, Jiminy Cricket does not make regular appearances at any other time, but as he says himself, "If your heart is in your dream, no request is too extreme." So you never know what might happen in the future! I would recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog in the time leading up to your vacation to see if there are any special events where you might find him, and keep checking the Character tab on the My Disney Experience app to see who will be appearing in the theme parks you're visiting.

    Now let's chat about Party for the Planet, an Earth Day Celebration, a special event that also pops up around Earth Day. This year, it was celebrated at Disney's Animal Kingdom over the weekend of Earth Day, from April 20 through 22. This special event is a great opportunity to find some of those unique Character experiences you're looking for so hopefully, next year's dates will line up with your vacation.

    Have a magical day, Lisa!
