    My son loves Donald Duck and Chip and Dale. Do the traditional/original characters still roam the park? Do they do Meet n Greets?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lori!

    One of our family's favorite things to do is to meet our favorite Disney Characters. My youngest son loves Donald Duck and my oldest son loves Chip 'n' Dale (in particular, Chip)! While you can occasionally find these favorites surprising Guests in the parks, the best place to spot them is in their set meet and greet areas. Our family loves to Meet Chip 'n' Dale near the Diamond Horseshoe in Magic Kingdom Frontierland. I think they are so cute in their cowboy outfits and the area makes for fantastic pictures! You can also Meet Your Chipmunk Buddies at Rafiki's Planet Watch in Disney's Animal Kingdom and at the Epcot Character Spot near Innoventions West. Our family's favorite spot to meet Donald Duck is in Magic Kingdom where we Meet Daring Disney Pals as Circus Stars at Pete's Silly Side Show. This meet and greet is great because we wait in line once to meet both Donald and Goofy! You can also Meet Donald in Mexico at Epcot's World Showcase or give him a big squeeze in DinoLand U.S.A.

    Say hello to some of my favorite friends for me! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!

Hi! I’m Crystal and I’m a wife and mommy to three little Mouseketeers. My husband and I have been enjoying Disney Parks since before we were married, and now we take our children to see Mickey and the gang as often as we can, while  managing my oldest son's food allergies. Planning is key for my family to ensure that everyone has a safe and fun trip to our favorite place and it can be just as exciting as the trip itself. I can’t wait to help you plan your next adventure there, too! Learn More About Crystal
