If you have children looking to get those autograph books filled, Hollywood Studios is a great place to meet and greet your favorite Disney characters. You will meet many Pixar characters that you won’t see elsewhere, but if you are looking for Disney Princesses, you are better off finding them at Epcot or Magic Kingdom. Even though you might not find your favorite Princesses, there are tons of Disney characters at Hollywood Studios, so be sure to have those autograph books with you and your pens handy!
