    Can you pay to meet a character . Grant

    There are plenty of Disney characters that anyone can meet for free in the parks at both regular and unannounced greeting areas. Past that, there are a few situations where a payment would get you more time with a character. These include:

    - Character dining. By having a meal at a character dining experience, you would have an opportunity to meet select characters without waiting in line. When you purchase a character meal, the characters in attendance there do come around to every table to pose for photos and sign autographs. Almost all of the characters at the meals can also be seen in the parks for no fee. To book a character meal, call Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE.

    - Certain tours. For example, guest who participate in the Family Magic Tour at the Magic Kingdom may have some special character time as described HERE.  To book the Family Magic Tour, call 407-WDW-TOUR.

    - Private events. Characters can be booked to attend a private event at WDW. For example, when Moms Panelist Kim had her 10th Anniversary Wedding Vow Renewal at the Grand Floridian, she arranged for Mickey Mouse to interact with her guests at the party. Characters can also attend private birthday parties or corporate events. To arrange something like this, you would need to speak with your on-site event coordinator.
