One the the best parts of visiting the Magic Kingdom is all of the Disney Character interactions that can occur without having to spend extra for special events or Disney Character Dining. Without spending extra there are 18 different Disney Character meet and greet opportunities that you can take part in at the Magic Kingdom.
Disney Friends At Town SquareEach day there are usually a number of Disney Characters that congregate at the Town Square, just inside the Magic Kingdom. They are great opportunities for Disney guests to meet and greet Disney characters and to start the process of having their picture taken with Disney characters,
Here we see Marie waiting to meet with Disney World Guests.
Classic Disney CharactersAt Pete's Silly Sideshow, located in the back of the Magic Kingdom in the area currently known as Storybook Circus there are 4 different Classic Disney Characters that you can meet in two separate lines. In one line you can see Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck, while the other line allows you to meet Goofy and Donald Duck.
This location is not well known to most Disney World guests and is a great way to get to meet these characters without a long wait!
Characters From "Aladdin"Adventureland is the home to many great attractions and the opportunity to meet some of your favorite characters from the hit Disney movie "Aladdin." The characters will vary depending upon the day, but you may get to meet Genie, Princess Jasmine, and/or Aladdin.
Characters From Disney/Pixar's Toy StoryAre you a Toy Story fan? Well, who isn't? If you would like the chance to meet some of these characters, then you should make your way to the attraction queue for Splash Mountain, where they have a special spot for meeting Magic Kingdom guests. Woody & Jessie are among the characters you may meet.
Characters From "The Princess and the Frog"Liberty Square is home to a special little garden where you may meet Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen from "The Princess and the Frog." Tiana's Garden Glen is a great place to meet a Disney Princess with usually short lines and a shady waiting area.
Merida From Disney/Pixar's BraveIf you love Merida, you can meet her at a special meeting place between Cinderella Castle and Cosmic Ray's. This well, designed area allows for a great picture setting and you may even get an archery lesson from Merida herself!
Mickey MouseWhat visit to the Magic Kingdom is complete without visiting the mouse that started it all, Mickey Mouse! In the Town Square Theater which can be found to your right as you enter the Magic Kingdom, Mickey Mouse meets guests all day. If you are tight on time, you can get a FastPass+ to reserve a time to meet Mickey Mouse and cut down on your wait.
Tinker BellEveryone's favorite feisty fairy can also be found at the Town Square Theater. Like Mickey Mouse, you can also get a FastPass+ to reserve a time to meet Tinker Bell if you do not want to wait in the standby line.
Princess Fairytale Hall - Anna & Elsa from Frozen and Cinderella and RapunzelThe place to meet Disney Royalty is currently at Princess Fairytale Hall which is located in Fantasyland behind Cinderella Castle.
There are currently two different queues where you can either wait to meet Princess Anna & Queen Elsa from Frozen or Cinderella & Rapunzel. Both lines have FastPass+ as an option, so if meeting your favorite is a must you may want to use this option.
