    I was just in looking to see when typically does meet n greet at Epcot but it keeps giving me an error message. PLEASE tell me she is still doing them and will be in May, as I am bringing my granddaughter who honestly believes she's her BFF.

    Hi there, Julie!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney today! Like your granddaughter, there are a few characters I consider to be some of my dearest friends (looking at you, Chip, Dale, and Stitch), so let's see if we can make her magical dreams come true!

    I'm not entirely sure which particular heroine she is hoping to meet, so I conducted a bit of research regarding the characters that currently have EPCOT on their regular schedule of appearances in hopes that it will prove helpful. Appearances can vary depending on the day, so for the most up-to-date information, I suggest checking your My Disney Experience mobile app during your visit. In the interim, feel free to use the information as a tentative guide for character locations as you plan. 
    • Moana - near the entrance to Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana
    • Snow White - by the wishing well in the Germany Pavilion
    • Belle - near the World Showcase Lagoon in the France Pavilion
    • Aurora - in the France Pavilion's gazebo nearest the Disney Skyliner
    • Mulan - inside in the China Pavilion
    • Anna & Elsa - Royal Sommerhus in the Norway Pavilion
    • Asha - in the gazebo across from Disney Traders
    • Alice and Mary Poppins have been known to rotate near the gardens in the UK Pavilion
    • Daisy - in the World Celebration area
    • Minnie Mouse - just past the main entrance on the right as you approach Spaceship Earth
    Please keep in mind that character appearances are subject to change without notice and that some characters have been known to make unscheduled appearances throughout the day. I was recently able to say a spontaneous 'Hello!' to Stitch, Piglet, and a Mary Poppins Penguin between the America and Italy Pavilions, and it was such a delightful treat filled with tap dancing, hugs, and air guitar. 

    Additionally, EPCOT is also home to two character dining experiences where Guests can enjoy a meal with beloved princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall or with classic favorites at Garden Grill Restaurant. Personally, I never pass up the opportunity to see Mickey in his farmer-finest, but if your tiny Mouseketeer loves princesses as much as my pal Jennifer does then you definitely won't want to miss Akershus. 

    I hope this was helpful, Julie, and that we successfully located your granddaughter's bestie. If not, please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly with the specific character you are hoping to track down, and I will do my best to pinpoint her location. 

    Thinking Happy Thoughts,
