    Baloo The Bear

    Hiya,

    I've heard that Baloo is common as a meet and greet character but every time I've been to Walt Disney World he seems to be the 1 character I can never catch for a photo, I've tried looking out for him especially in Animal Kingdom (I'm guessing he'd be there more than anywhere else) If anyone can tell me where I can find him can you let me know please? Thank you xxx

    Also on a seperate note, I read ages ago online (Can't remember what site) that the Chip and Dale characters where getting more added to them (a tuft of hair) on Dale (Not sure about Chip) Did this turn out to be true?

    Baloo can usually be found in AK with King Louie. They meet over in Africa by the drums (and the Tamu stand), across from Tusker House.

    Re: Baloo The Bear

    Seems the question has already been answered. On my trip there last week I saw Baloo and King Louie at that spot every time I passed it. Also later in the day, around 4pm or so, Baloo was in one of the character spots right outside the park entrance which is where I got my avatar pic from

    Thanks everyone, he sounds easy to find but from all my Disney trips I haven't came across him once outside the parade! Only King Louis!
