    I was wondering if by any chance that there was any way my family could meet Esmeralda and also Alice in Wonderland even if it's not at the same time? I didn't know if these characters were to be found at WDW because they're not extremely popular.

    I have seen both Esmerelda and Alice at WDW!

    Alice is fairly easy to find. She and the Mad Hatter are regulars at the character breakfast at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian (character are different at dinner). If you want to be assured of seeing Alice, I would book this dining experience at 407-WDW-DINE. But you could likely find her in the parks even if you didn't reserve this character meal. At various times I have also seen Alice near the teacup ride in the Magic Kingdom, on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom, and in the England pavilion at Epcot.

    Esmerelda I have only seen once, about five years ago, near the path between Future World and the World Showcase at Epcot. She does not currently have any regular meet-and-greet area at WDW, but that doesn't mean there's no possibility of find her (though it is much less likely).

    The best thing for you to do would be to go to the Guest Relations office at any of the theme parks. Ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. They will be able to tell if, where, and when any specific character will be appearing at WDW during the time of your visit.

    Good luck with your search!
