    I'm actually a Dad and I'm taking my three year old to Disney in three months. Where is the best place for her to meet all the Mickey and Friends characters as well as characters from the Jungle Book? Thanks! Tes

    Hi Tes,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I hope you and your daughter are getting excited for your Walt Disney World vacation!

    We always love meeting up with our Disney Character friends. My first suggestion is to check out the My Disney Experience Mobile App. It's a great go-to resource to see what's going on for attraction wait times, dining locations, park hours, FastPass+ options, and Character spots  The app has a helpful map feature, and includes a category for Characters so you can easily see a map or listing of the Disney Character friends you can meet up with. For example, while Baloo and King Louie from The Jungle Book were often spotted in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, I'm thinking they've now gone back to their jungle adventures.

    You and your daughter will have the fun opportunity to meet Character friends in each of the theme parks. One of my favorite Character meet and greet locations is the Epcot Character Spot where you can often meet Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Goofy. While at Epcot, be sure to tour the different country pavilions in World Showcase. For example, Snow White often greets her friends by the Wishing Well in the Germany pavilion. Another favorite spot for us is the Adventurers Outpost in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park where you can catch up with Mickey and Minnie and their amazing traveling adventures. You'll also want to be sure to visit Mickey when he's rehearsing for his show at Town Square Theater in Magic Kingdom Park. Another idea is to plan a Character Dining experience for fun with Disney friends.

    Tes, here's wishing you a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
