While many people think Epcot is not a fun park for kids, it actually has a ton of attractions that kids enjoy. Besides the rides and attractions, kids also like getting to meet Disney characters at Epcot. The park has some characters that you won’t find anywhere else in Disney World.
While getting photos and autographs of your favorite Disney character is a fun, it can be time consuming if you don’t know where they are.
You can’t do much about the lines for these meet & greets, but if you know where the characters are going to be in advance of going, you can at least take the guess work of hunting them down.

If you have a specific question about when a particular character is going to be out, try asking a Disney Cast Member in that particular area of the park. The cast members are usually given a paper list of meeting times each day.
When it rains, characters are typically placed in different locations. They are usually placed in nearby buildings.
