    My grandson & I will be returning to Disney World for his 8th visit. Every time we have visited, he has fallen more in love with Minnie. The last time, Minnie took him to tell Mickey her heart belonged to Ryan. Is it possible to meet Minnie privately.

    Oh grandson thinks Minnie's heart belongs to him!!!  He is three and loves his characters as much as anything else at Walt Disney World. 

    I have found the best place for a really good character greeting without interruptions is at EPCOT.  As you enter from the main gate it is directly to the right of the fountain.  There you can meet, greet, and photograph many of the major characters.  They cannot guarantee Minnie but she has always been there for our visits.

    The other wonderful spot is in the Animal Kingdom Park at Camp Minnie-Mickey.  This is tucked back by the Lion King show and when that show is taking place you can often get a very long one on one time with the characters.

    Your last option is very expensive but for certain parties we have been able to book a character for a half an hour.  Contact a cast member for a customized party at 407-828-3200 to see about the possibilities.  That would truly be the way to have Minnie belong to Ryan's heart!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
