0705ZW_2631_CR-3In addition to the new shows, attractions and special events this summer at Disney World, these new character meet-and-greets are attractions in themselves!

  1. Mickey & Minnie: Starring in Red Carpet Dreams, meet the duo who started it all on Commissary Lane in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Enjoy this celebrity-studded event, and celebrate the moment Mickey and Minnie brought their dreams to life and the magic began!
  2. Kylo Ren & Chewbacca: Meeting Kylo Ren is more mind-blowing than magical… If you don’t want to join the First Order, you may just want to play along–or hope he doesn’t have a temper tantrum! If you escape, stop by to see Chewie for a much friendlier encounter. You’ll find them both inside Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (and at Disneyland Park!)
  3. Olaf: If you escape the Dark Side and still need a hug, head on over to and meet your favorite, summer-loving snowman! With a drink close at hand and a beachy adventure on the horizon, it’s the coolest spot in the “World.” Olaf chills out at Celebrity Spotlight in Echo Lake at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (and he also visits Hollywood Land at Disney California Adventure Park!)
  4. Princess Anna & Queen Elsa: Soon they’ll open the gates of the Royal Summerhus at Epcot’s World Showcase in Norway to visitors–and they can’t wait to welcome YOU! Stop in to say hello to your favorite Disney sisters before or after experiencing Frozen Ever After, also set to open sometime in June 2016! In the meantime, you can visit them in Disney California Adventure Park at Animation Academy!
  5. Joy & Sadness: Meet the leading roles in Riley’s mind across from Epcot Character Spot in Future World. Step “Inside” this memorable movie scene for a feel-good experience you won’t soon forget!

Be sure to check the Times Guide or app for each park’s meet-and-greet availability, dates and times with your favorite Disney friends.
