Character Palooza can be like shooting at a moving target at times. Cast Members are instructed to act as if it doesn’t occur until they characters actually appear and the schedules aren’t published publicly except on my site and others who borrow it. I’m able to get basic schedules from an uncredited friend because the friend wants guests to be able to access these characters. Sometimes the schedules that I’m provided can be adjusted slightly based on conditions and desires of the Character Palooza team. I try my best to keep the schedules updated, but recommendation is to arrive a little before the times I list and wait around. Characters will NOT appear during inclement weather.
Here’s a link to the Character Palooza schedule and location information.
Here’s who we visited yesterday: Belle, Mulan, Snow White & Snow Queen Grimhilde, Green Army Men, Penguin, Mary Poppins, Stitch, Genie, Chip n Dale. Belle didn’t return for the second set and the third set was cancelled after only a minute or two on stage due to rain in the area.

The highlight of recent Character Palooza meets has been seeing Snow White and the Evil Queen Grimhilde in the same meet and greet!
Belle didn’t offer a set meet. She took the hand of this little girl and walked around with her introducing her to the various characters with no waiting in lines. Way to go Belle!
Chip had very few people meeting with him, so I got this fun shot of him leaning on the parking meter. The meter read “Fail.” Too funny.
My little girl just couldn’t let Chip go without getting some hugs.
Dale had a very short line as well.
My little girl told Genie that the Police were after him.
Attention soldier! Green Army men are always a fun pose.

Isn’t Mary Poppins lovely?
She was explaining to my older daughter the significance of the umbrella
I think my daughter is getting some lessons in courtesy in this photo
Too lovely ladies together
We discussed how much fun real (not Epcot) China really is and how we got to run on the Great Wall and visit the Teracotta Warriors.
Mulan teaches girls to become strong women. You go girl!

Snow White was happy to show off her beautiful new dress
My little girl is telling the Evil Queen to smile more often. The queen replied, “Smiling gives you wrinkles.”
Can you tell we were happy to meet them together?
One last shot of us all together
Stitch is happy to show off his dental work
My older girl was taking a selfie with Stitch. It turned out well. It’s on my Twitter account.
