    Does Mickey or any of the characters do Meet and Greets and the Hotels when checking in? I know my 8 and 6 year old would love it! We arrive in June.

    Hi Catherine!

    The best place to meet the Disney characters is at the parks or at a character dining experience. Some of the Walt Disney World Resorts do have character meals in which you can meet the characters.

    Chef Mickey at The Contemporary offers a delicious all-you-care-to-eat buffet and you can meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto!

    At Grand Floridian you can meet Alice in Wonderland, Marry Poppins, and friends at 1900 Park Fare. If your little one's like Lilo and Stitch consider a character meal at Ohana at the Polynesian.

    You can also meet the characters at the parks. Check out a Times Guide for the park you are visiting when you arrive to see when and where the characters will be located.
