    I have a 5 year old who loves Baymax, StarWars and Lightening McQueen, and a 2 year old who loves Doc McStuffins. I'd appreciate suggestions for meeting these characters. Thanks!

    Hi Ann,

    Big confession...I love all of those Characters too and look forward to Character Experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort just as much as my kids do! 

    At this time, you can meet Baymax in Epcot in Innoventions West across from the Epcot Character Spot entrance. Currently, FastPass+ reservations are not available for this Meet and Greet, just a standby line. Right now there are no set hours for Baymax, but it looks like it will be the same hours as Epcot Character Spot, which is from Park open to Park close.

    You can meet Chewbacca at Star Wars Launch Bay in Disney's Hollywood Studios and can also see some Star Wars Characters in the queue for Star Tours - The Adventures Continue as well as Star Wars: Path of the Jedi and Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. Darth Vader used to be at Star Wars Launch Bay but is not currently on the schedule. He may be back soon so be sure to pick up a Times Guide when you arrive at the Park to see the most up to date Character Experiences. Also at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you can meet Doc McStuffins and other Disney Junior Pals in the Animation Courtyard. You can also meet her at Hollywood & Vine. The Character Dining Experience there will give you the opportunity to eat, play and dance along with Doc and other Disney Junior friends. 

    You'll want to make a "Pit Stop" at Disney's Art of Animation Resort to check out the Cars wing if you want to meet Lightning McQueen. The Resort brings the movie to life with the themed landscape and Characters including Lightning McQueen, Mater, Fillmore, Sarge and others from the popular film.
