    Hubs grew up on the Jungle Book the highlight of his trip 7 years back was getting his photo with Baloo. For some insane reason it was the ONLY character exp that did NOT make it onto the (v expensive) memory maker. Is he still making appearances?

    Hi Nicole!

    I am so disappointed for you that you had a Memory Maker snag on your last visit. If that ever happens again, and if you know the date and approximate time that the photo was taken, oftentimes they can find the missing photo for you.

    Currently, Baloo is off roaming the jungle and does not have a regularly scheduled Meet-and-Greet in the parks. However, sometimes in the afternoons, near the exit of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, there are unscheduled character interactions. There isn’t a way to know exactly what characters will appear, or even if they will appear, but sometimes Baloo will make an appearance there. Cast Members will not give you any information about this, and if the weather is bad it usually won’t happen. If this is a "bare necessity" for your husband, and you have some time to spare, you may want to grab a cool drink and a snack and take a seat in that area in the late afternoon on the chance you get lucky. If you don’t see Baloo, a mid-day break for some rest and hydration is always a good idea either way.

    Sending you pixie dust for a lucky chance encounter with Baloo!
