    My 5 year old wants to meet "all the mickey characters." We have a fastpass for the EPCOT character spot. Should we meet the characters at the Visa cardholder spot too? How many characters are available to see?

    Hi Elizabeth! If I were a five year old I too would want to meet all my Disney buddies during a Walt Disney World vacation. We see them on TV and in movies and heading to their home is the most exciting part of the trip.

    I love the Epcot Character spot and so happy you have a FastPass for that as the lines do grow quite long throughout the day. You should definitely do the Visa cardholder meet and greet as that is usually a face character such as Mary Poppins. Then you can head over to the Norway Pavilion and enjoy the meet and greet of Anna and Elsa.

    Throughout the World Showcase you can also find face characters such as Aladdin, Snow White, Jasmine, and more. A great place to see a character is at the International Gateway entrance as the lines are generally very small and sometimes you can simply walk up and see who is there.

    And don't forget to see Baymax, Joy, and Sorrow who are directly across from the Character Spot. Some guests zoom right by that location and never even know the surprise that is inside.

    Epcot has so many character meet and greets so be sure and pick up the Times Guide when you enter so see the locations and times for each of them. The walk around the World Showcase is worth it if nothing else to see so many of the Disney faces and get the pictures and autographs. Have a great time!
