Character Palooza at Hollywood StudiosCharacter Palooza at Hollywood Studios is one of the top Hidden Gems at Walt Disney World! It is a time when some of the less seen characters come out for an unannounced meet and greet.

While it has been widely speculated that this meet & greet only happens inside the gates of the park, we actually experienced before we even entered.

On a day when we decided to park hop (to grab a meal over at Hollywood & Vine) we noticed a ton of activity over on the far right side of the entrance gates to Hollywood Studios.

Imagine our excitement to see that it was the tail end of the Meet & Greet Character Palooza at Hollywood Studios that we had heard about.

Tips for Character Palooza at Hollywood Studios

If you are lucky enough to stumble upon this wonderful character experience count yourself VERY lucky and be prepared that you will not get to meet EVERY character. Use these tips:

  • Get in a line immediately. This event only lasts about 20 minutes so there is no time to waste.
  • Send one person from your party who doesn’t care to be in the photo in a second line to hold the spot
  • Have your camera and autograph book ready to go. There is no photographer.
  • These are typically characters with A LOT of personality! They will want you to play along so it is a great opportunity to be silly in photos.
