    HI Moms Panel!! :) My DD6 is a HUGE dog lover and is obsessed with all the Disney dogs (Bruno, Pongo and Perdita, Lady and Tramp, Dug, Bolt, Pluto, Nana, Copper, Goofy). Is there any experience or meet and greet offered with any of the Disney dogs?

    Hi Ashley,

    My girls were huge dog lovers when they were six years old too. I completely understand your need to find them all.

    Two of the Disney dogs have regular meet & greet opportunities in the parks. Goofy and Pluto are often available during the day near the entrance to the Magic Kingdom and near the big hat at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Additionally, you can find Goofy in the circus tent area at the MK's New Fantasyland and at Epcot's character spot. Additionally one of Goofy or Pluto is at the character meals at Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary resort, Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club, and Tusker House at the Animal Kingdom.

    In addition to meet & greets, you may want to visit the 101 Dalmatians area at the All Star Movies resort. Your daughter can pose there with GIANT (building sized) dalmatians. There is Lady & the Tramp iconography at the Tony's Town Square restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. And an audioanimatronic Nana appears during the Peter Pan's Flight ride.

    You'll want to keep any eye out for other park-specific dogs during several of the rides. The dog in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride is a classic Disney figure. There's a wonderful dog throughout the Carousel of Progress and you'll find a dog in the Living with the Land ride at Epcot as well.

    And don't forget to have some hot dogs at Casey's Corner during your visit. They're delish!

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
