Top Ten Character Meet and Greets at Walt Disney World

The only thing that has changed is the fact that Disney characters no longer wander the parks aimlessly to greet guests like they did when I was a kid. These days, there are specific greeting schedules and you’ll inevitably have to wait in some lines, but with just a little bit of strategy �" there are websites devoted exclusively to “character hunting” �" you can return home with countless photos, autographs, and memories of your character interactions.
Some character meet-and-greets are obvious and extremely popular (hello, Frozen sisters at Princess Fairytale Hall! ) while others may not be quite as well-known to the average park guest. But if your daughter is looking for a signature from Cinderella to complete her collection, or your son is just dying to have his Goofy hat signed by the real, live Goofy, here are a dozen of the best places to get some one-on-one time with your favorite Disney characters.
