    Is there somewhere to sign up to meet specific disney characters? My son LOVES Mickey and we want to make sure we get the chance to see him in person and snap a photo.

    Welcome to planDisney, Shannon!

    Meeting the characters is one of the magical reasons Disneyland Resort is The Happiest Place on Earth. My daughter and son love meeting the characters and giving them HUGE hugs. On my last Disneyland Resort trip, my son was having a tough day. However, he saw Mickey Mouse and ran over to him to say "hi." Mickey took my son's hand and they walked down the street together. To this day, I've never seen my son so happy. It completely changed his mood for the rest of the day. It was such a magical moment and I'll cherish it forever.

    Shannon, there are loads of beloved characters to meet at the Disneyland Resort. A helpful tool is the Disneyland mobile app. When you arrive at the theme park, simply open up the app, tap the location symbol (the second symbol at the bottom), and from the drop-down menu, select "Characters." You'll then find all the different character greetings that are currently available. A "practically perfect" place to meet Mickey Mouse is at Mickey's House, which is located in Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland Park. If you're at Disney California Adventure, look out for Mickey and his friends on Buena Vista Street. Your son is going to be so excited to see him! His joy will only be exceeded by your own when you see the smile on his face.

    Have a great trip, Shannon. Come and see us again if you have any more questions.
