    My kids are huge Toy Story fans. Where is the best place for them to meet the characters? Also, I have heard that while visiting with the toy story characters if you yell "Here comes Andy" they all drop to the ground, is this true?

    Hi Melissa!

    My kids love the Toy Story Characters as well! I'm happy to tell you where you can meet up with them for some autographs, hugs and photo opportunities!

    Be sure to pick up a Daily Times Guide slip as your enter the parks (located with the park maps) for a detailed listing of Character Meet & Greet times and locations for the day.

    You'll find Woody and Buzz actually in two parks - Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
    At Magic Kingdom, you'll find Buzz in Tomorrowland near the Carousel of Progress. Woody appears with Jessie daily over near the exit of Splash Mountain.

    At Hollywood Studios, you'll find this fun bunch in Pixar Place. Buzz appears with Woody daily in Pixar Place, just across from the entry to the Toy Story Mania! attraction. You'll also find the Green Army Men making appearances daily just outside Toy Story Mania! They are my kids' favourite to see. 

    Although in the past there have been occasions recorded and shown online wherein the Toy Story Characters drop to the ground when someone shouts "Andy's coming!", I'm sorry to tell you that this is no longer the case. Mainly due to the fact that due to the Characters' size it posed somewhat of a danger to both the characters and nearby little ones who may not be easily seen by the characters. Besides, the Characters are no longer owned by Andy now, are they? ;)

    I hope your kids have a Magical time meeting & greeting the Toy Story Characters Melissa!
    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question. I hope to hear from you again soon!

    Wishing you as simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
