A Look Back: Epcot - The Disney Characters On Holiday!

Today we go back in time for a look at how the Disney Characters used to be found at Epcot in "The Disney Characters on Holiday!"

This was a time when your favorite Disney Characters including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Goofy, Donald Duck, Chip & Dale, and more used to travel Epcot in a red double decker bus.

Before the Epcot Character Spot
Well before Disney Characters could be found in the permanent Epcot Character Spot which is currently located next to Innoventions West in the Future World section of Epcot, they were more mobile.

The Disney Characters on Holiday!
Turning back the clock to 2004, we find that your favorite Disney Characters could be found cruising around Epcot in a big red double decker bus that was decorated with the flags of the countries represented in the World Showcase and various other vacation type props.

At the time this was the best way in any of the Disney World Parks to see the "Fab 5" - Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, & Goofy all at the same time.  The list of characters on "Holiday" didn't stop there.  You could see Terk, Chip 'n Dale, Pinocchio, and Geppetto.
There were great opportunties to get your picture taken with each of the characters.  The lines during the Disney Characters On Holiday in Epcot always seemed to be shorter than the character lines in the other parks.

After about 15 minutes the characters re-boarded their bus and headed off to their next destination.

Great Disney Character Greetings Memories
"Disney Characters On Holiday" was a nice way to integrate the Disney Characters into the Epcot park.  Although they were not as accessible as the full time Epcot Character Spot, the charm of seeing the characters arrive on the double decker bus added that special touch of Disney Magic that will be missed.
