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 fun, it can be time consuming if you don’t know where the Disney character meet & greets are located.
Here’s where you will find EPCOT characters:

Tips for EPCOT Character Meet & Greets
Make sure that you have your camera ready to snap that picture and if you are having them sign an autograph book, that you have your pen uncapped.
Disney characters at Epcot are not available for meet and greets the entire day.
If you have a specific question about when a particular character is going to be out, try asking a Disney Cast Member in that area of the park.
I would also suggest using the My Disney Experience App.
When it rains, characters are typically placed in different locations. They are usually placed in nearby buildings.
You will also want to keep in mind that with all the updates coming to Epcot, some of the Disney characters at Epcot might be shuffled around.
We will update this post as changes are made, but you should also check the times guide when you arrive at the park.
