    Where can I meet Jose Carioca and Panchito? I'm going to go WDW on 20th to 24th August. And 24th August is Jose's birthday!

    Hi Yukiko!

    Getting the chance to meet some of your favorite Disney Characters can sprinkle a little extra pixie dust on a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  

    Unfortunately, right now, you can't meet José and Panchito, but you can see them on one of their exciting adventures on the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot!  You can sometimes even meet Donald Duck there!  

    That being said, make sure you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and on the Characters List on the My Disney Experience mobile app.  Sometimes, Disney Characters that are not normally around the Walt Disney World Resort show up for special occasions!  Just earlier this year José and Panchito joined the Discovery Island Carnivale at Disney's Animal Kingdom, so you never know when one of your favorites may show up!  Since everyone knows Mickey Mouse loves celebrations, José may even make a surprise visit to the Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate his birthday!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
