Description And Comments
Scattered around Animal Kingdom are numerous places to meet Disney characters who pose for photos and sign autographs. Characters vary seasonally and may change at any time. See a Times Guide and/or look at the unofficial Walt Disney World Entertainment site for times and locations, and do not be surprised to see characters in other places, as well.
These character greeting opportunities may include:
- Africa Character Greeting Trails
- DinoLand U.S.A. (Across from TriceraTop Spin)
- Discovery Island (Near Flame Tree Barbecue)
- Island Mercantile (Discovery Island)
Kids love to meet characters, and many are obsessed about getting as many autographs as possible. Disney facilitates this by selling autograph books and having a character "handler" manage the greeting queue. Go very early, very late, or during a parade to minimize your wait. Also, characters that are a bit off the beaten path (for example, at Rafiki's Planet Watch or near Flame Tree Barbecue) tend to have shorter waits.
