917322640_1018ZY_1318MSAnna and Elsa’s meet-and-greet is famous for its long lines (even though this royal duo is worth the wait.) But here are a few Disney pals you’ll LOVE to visit without giving up a huge amount of your park touring time.

No one meets-and-greets like Gaston; that’s for sure! Our bet is you’ll see more teen girls or ladies in line than kids. He’s super fun and one of the best meet-and-greets in all of Disney, in our opinion! Gaston is located near his tavern in the New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. Be prepared to show your muscles!

Lady Tremaine, Anastasia and Drizella
You can meet Lady Termaine and her villainous daughters at Magic Kingdom next to Cinderella’s Castle on the Fantasyland side, or enjoy dinner with them at 1900 Park Fare located in the Grand Floridian Resort. Be ready to be slightly scared and very entertained–and beware if you haven’t done your chores 😉

Kylo Ren
If you’re ready to face the Dark Side, you might want to think again. Always in character, Kylo Ren will simultaneously amaze and scare you. He is available for meet-and-greets in the Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Do you have a Disney Visa? Then you’re in luck; you can get a private meet-and-greet with either Kylo Ren or Chewbacca at a special location at Star Wars Launch Bay. Bonus: this experience includes a free photo download!

Meet-and-greets with Stitch are few and far in between these days. You can still catch the temperamental-but-adorable alien at the ‘Ohana character breakfast at the Polynesian Village Resort. He’s there hanging out with his sidekick, Lilo, in between character parades where the kids can join in the fun! This is a must-do for Lilo and Stitch fans.

Talking Mickey Mouse
That’s right; Mickey talks and interacts with guests when they visit him “backstage!” Each meet-and-greet with him is so unique you can go back time and time again for a different experience! Mickey is located in Town Square Theater at Magic Kingdom.
