    WDW's wide array of characters

    I've been looking at pictures people post of their WDW vacation and I've seen a lot of characters that I haven't seen at DL in ages. Baloo, King Louie, Robin Hood... are these flukes or are they really out that often? What other ones are there?

    They're not flukes. I see characters from Jungle Book & Robin Hood nearly every time I visit WDW.

    Launchpad has been spotted at Animal Kingdom and Marie from The Aristocats & Clarice (from that Chip & Dale short "Two Chips & a Miss") have been spotted at MGM in recent months as well.

    Baloo and King Louie can often be found in the Magic Kingdom in Town Square or possibly Adventureland, but also in various locations at Animal Kingdom. They have a spot over by Africa as you enter just across from the drums, but will also do meet and greets outside the front of the park.

    Robing Hood might be more difficult to find, but I have seen him in Town Square as well. Other characters from that film such as Prince John and Friar Truck might be easier to find, but try Town Square, outside of Animal Kingdom, and sometimes Epcot.

    Other characters such as Clarabell Cow, Horace Horsecollar (MK,) Clarice, Clara Cluck (Studios,) and Marie (Epcot - France) have been recently spotted many times. Then there's Launchpad outside of Animal Kingdom or in the Judge's Tent in Toon Town.

    If you are really looking for a certain character, stop by Guest Relations and they will do their best to help you.

    I've seen the female mice from Cinderella (but no jacques or gus-gus) and I've seen the evel stepmother and stepsisters. They were hilarious.

    Re: WDW's wide array of characters

    I feel WDW is fairly good about keeping characters where they match the theme. Below is a list of characters that I have encountered personaly over the past couple of years and where.

    Magic Kingdom:

    Just inside the entry gate usually early in the morning:
    Mickey
    Minnie

    Main Street Hub(seem to be very random)
    Pinnochio
    Gepeto
    Pluto
    Stitch
    Friar Tuck
    Goofy

    Adventureland:Baloo, King Louie, Rafiki, Genie, Aladdin, Abu, Jasmine, Peter Pan, Wendy, Smee, Capt Hook

    Frontierland:
    Woody, Jessie, Bullseye > these guys are usually inside the lobby of Diamond Horseshoe

    Various Country Bears

    Fantasyland:Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit >these guys are usually in front of Pooh's Playground


    Alice, White Rabbit, Tweedle Dee and Dum, Mad Hatter >these guys are usually in front of Tea Cups


    Inside the big store at Toon Town are separate lines:

    One is princesses...usually Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty
    One is Pooh Characters
    One is Mickey's Friends...Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, Donald...

    Tomorrowland:Buzz Lightyear, Stitch

    Epcot:
    Character Connection:
    Usually the following- Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, Chip and Dale and then in the hall as you exit there will be some characters as well. I have seen Belle, Goofy, and Alice here as well.
    World Showcase:
    Mexico:
    Donald as one of the Caballeros
    China:
    Mushu, Mulan
    Morocco:
    Genie, Aladdin, Jasmine
    Italy:
    Snow White
    Dopey and other random Dwarfs
    France:
    Belle, Beast, Sleeping Beauty
    England:
    Mary Poppins, Pooh characters, White Rabbit, Alice
    Canada:
    Kenai and Koda
    African outpost corner:
    Rafiki, Timon

    Animal Kingdom:
    Near the mercantile store: Stitch, Flick
    Camp Minnie Mickey:
    Separate lines for Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Chip and Dale
    Kenai, Koda out in front of this area
    Africa:
    Baloo, King Louie
    Conservation Station:
    Stanley
    Pocahontas
    Rafiki

    MGM:
    Near the Commissary- Monsters Inc-Sully and Mike
    At the end of the Animation tour:
    Mr and Mrs Incredible, Frozone, Kim possible, Ron Stoppable, The Robinsons, Chicken Little, Abby Mallard
    Mickey Avenue:
    Playhouse Disney characters- Annie, June, Leo,Quincy, JoJo, Goliath
    Donald
    Streets of America:
    Power Rangers, Kim Possible, Ron Stoppable
    In front of the hat there are random characters as well. I have encountered The Evil Queen from Snow White here as well as Cruella DeVil, Chip and Dale..many others that are escaping me at the moment.

    These are my personal experiences and not permanent by any means. It just kind of shows how many characters you have a chance of encountering. And then of course there are the character meals which are a guaranteed chane of characters. I didn't realize how many there are until I started doing this list...

    Sadly, I've never see me, or any of my other TENG friends, like Kuzco, Kronk, Yzma etc. there.

    Of all the times I have visited WDW I have NEVER seen Rabbit. And it's killing me! I want a pic with Tigger & Rabbit together so bad!

    There isn't much of a demand for those characters to be in Disneyland. If you want to see them start pounding on the door of City Hall.

    I've actually been told by Disneyland's Guest Relations that if I want to see Piglet - go to Walt Disney World.

    But yes, the nice thing about the % of visitors v. locals = more entertainment, characters, etc.

    doesn't he do meet and greets for P&P party?

    Apparently he was out for Grad Night this year, too.

    That's because the line for him at WDW would be longer than the actual ride he's in!

    Re: WDW's wide array of characters

    Ironically I thought the same thing about seeing lots of the DL trip reports... lots of 'regular' characters there that you don't see in WDW much.

    There is a website (which I can't recall at the momment..) that trys to ID all the character locations for autographs in WDW.

    Re: WDW's wide array of characters

    One thing that helps is that we have four different parks for the characters to appear in.
    I love that we can go to MGM studios and see all of Emily's favorite Playhouse Disney characters.
    And I think it is neat that they have character meet and greets at the character's country of origin at Epcot.

    Re: WDW's wide array of characters

    I'm just confused as to why the Jungle Book characters are always found in African areas...
