One of our favorite things to do while at the Disney World parks is get our picture taken with various characters. While you will find characters roaming around various locations of the parks, there are some Disney World characters that have designated areas where you should be able to easily spot them.
We have compiled a list of where to find characters at Disney World so that you can bookmark and take with you when you travel.

While there are other Disney World characters you might see in the parks, these are the ones that have designated meet & greet locations.
Disney World Times Guide
One thing that will make it easier to find Disney World characters no matter which park you are at is the Times Guide.
Each park has a Times Guide that tells you the times of shows, parades and where characters are for meet & greets throughout the day.
There are, however, other character meet & greets that aren’t on the Times Guide.
This is why you will want to also refer to our Disney World Characters list.
Don’t forget to purchase an autograph book before you go!
You will find them at nearly every shop in the parks, but you can also purchase them online so you don’t have to worry about stumbling upon a character before you have a chance to purchase an autograph book.
