Characters At Magic Kingdom
The Magic Kingdom is a great place to meet characters. There are several inside locations (a nice place to keep cool in the summer or stay dry if it's raining). Some of these meets are very popular and this is the one park I would suggest using a fastpass for a character meet.
The first character meet is talking Mickey at Town Square Theater. You can get a Fastpass to meet Mickey, I did when I met him in October 2014 because the line was still really long. Mickey did a card trick for me which was lots of fun. I met talking Mickey again in May 2015, my sister found him a bit creepy. This time he asked a pirate joke and had us be pirates in our picture. If you visit Mickey early or later in the day you do not need a Fastpass. In 2018 I visited Mickey before the Festival fo Fantasy Parade around 2pm and waited about 20 minutes.
Another character who meets at Town Square Theater is Tinker Bell and also has a Fastpass option. Tinker Bell has been moved several times in recent years until she found her current home in 2014. She used to be with her friends in Pixie Hollow in ToonTown but when that closed she moved to a meet location in Adventureland just over the bridge. First is a picture from Town Square Theater in October 2014. The picture of Tinker Bell in her winter clothes is from her previous location in Adventureland where she was meeting with her sister Periwinkle in November 2013. The pictures in the second row are from the Pixie Hollow area in ToonTown in 2011. I met with Fawn, Vida, and Tinker Bell. That Tinker Bell was disappointing but Fawn was great and Vida was super awesome, she joked about my crocs making me fly.
Minnie and Pluto meet at the flagpole across the street from Town Hall this usually happens in the morning for about an hour right when the park opens.
Snow White has been meeting outside the Town Square Theater where Tinker Bell and Mickey meet. This picture is from when Snow White and Dopey were meeting over by the bathrooms by Guest Services, across the way from Town Square Theater.
Mary Poppins has moved from her spot by Town Square to up near The Crystal Palace restaurant.
Buzz Lightyear meets next to his ride close to the Carousel of Progress throughout the day. He stamps instead of signing.
In May 2016 Chip and Dale have moved to Tomorrowland. They used to meet in Frontierland near the Rivers of America. They are now meeting in their spacemen costumes.
A great location to meet characters is Storybook Circus in New Fantasyland. Daisy and Minnie meet on one side, Donald and Goofy on the other. May 2015 was my second vist here. Minnie was super fun, she was dancing while waiting for guests. I met Donald and Goofy in December 2016 since their line was short right before Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party begun.
Ariel also meets in the New Fantasyland. She meets in Ariel's Grotto which is also inside next to Journey into the Little Mermaid and has a Fastpass option. This is the only location you can meet her as a mermaid. Ariel is my favorite princess so this meet is always a must for me! The third picture is from the terrance just over the bridge in Adventureland from 2012 when they were constructing the newer Ariel's Grotto in New Fantasyland, I was excited that Prince Eric was meeting with Ariel.
The Princess Fairytale Hall is a great place to meet some of the princesses and this meet offers Fastpasses. During my 2015 I made a stop in to meet Cinderella and Rapunzel, since the lines for Rapunzel were so long my last few trips I didn't get to meet her. I used a Fastpass for the meet which was great since the wait time said 75 minutes. The pictures below that were from the old ToonTown where the princesses met before Fairytale Hall. Now you can meet Rapunzel and Tiana in one line and Cinderella and Elena of Avalor in the other.
The Tremaine sisters (Anastasia and Druzilla) meet in New Fantasyland not far from Enchanted Tales with Belle. They are always fun to meet. This picture is when they used to meet on the left side of the castle. As of February 21, 2016 Lady Tremaine will no longer be meeting with her daughters. The only place to meet her now will be 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian for dinner.
Alice meets at the Tea Cups. I have a picture with her and the Mad Hatter from MNSSHP. As of October 2015 the Mad Hatter meets with Alice. Sometimes the White Rabbit meets as well.
Pooh and Tigger meet at the area next to the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. I have a photo with him and his friends from MVMCP. This is the only park meet for Tigger and Pooh since they no longer meet at Epcot (February 13, 2016).
Gaston meets near his tavern in New Fantasyland. Gaston is always looking for the pretty ladies and someone to fall all over him.
Merida meets in the area on the right side of the castle. The area has a great theme. Merida was fun, she wished me a happy birthday and we talked about our love of chocolate cake.
Peter Pan has been meeting near Peter Pan's Flight. Before that he was meeting at the Adventureland terrance. This photo was taken next to Pirates of the Carribean where Peter used to meet with Wendy.
Right now there are no meets in Liberty Square.
Woody meets in Frontierland, he and Jessie have moved to a new location near the Rivers of America where Chip and Dale used to meet. For many years Jessie and Woody met near Splash Mountain at the beginning of the parade route. There is a rumor that Woody and Jessie will be leaving the Magic Kingdom, Jessie may move to Hollywood Studios in Andy's Room.
Aladdin meets in Adventureland behind the Flying Carpets. Jasmine, Genie, and Abu sometimes meet with him or all three can be separate. I met Jafar in this location during MNSSHP. As of 2015 Genie and Abu only meets during the parties (MNSSHP, MVMCP). Aladdin and Jasmine also meet in Morocco at Epcot.
A recent addition (October 2015) to the Magic Kingdom character meets is Rafiki. For years Rafiki met at the Adventureland Terrace. He is meeting in Adventureland near the Swiss Family Tree House. The only other place to meet Rafiki is at Animal Kingdom at Rafiki's Planet Watch. There is a rumor that Rafaki may leave the Magic Kingdom in October 2016.
