    Talking Favorite Character Spot

    I don't know if anyone has started this thread, but i was wondering what your favorite character spot was anywhere in Disney World, like with no waits! Also, what you consider the rarest character you've ever met! I can't really answer both of these cuz I've only been to the World 2x so... but i do remember in France there was a character meeting in a little area behind shops... I met Aurora and Belle with noone else there I think. Also one of the best places to meet the Mouse is @ MGM I forgot where but it is n this little theater place...we got his autograph in much as 5 mins. probably! Also it is Socerror Mickey!
    All it takes is a little Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust!

    My favorite is a character breakfast for the fab 5. Not to have to wait 2 hours to get Mickey or Minnie's autograph is worth your weight in gold.

    Once we literally ran into Snow White... no one knew she was there and we were the first in line (This was at Epcot)! Ariel took the longest but she was well worth it!!!

    So i am completely blanking on what this place is called, but its an area in epcot across from the land and innovations. Its just a back hallway, somewhat, to the rest of the building and there are characters in there. I could just walk through and didnt have to wait for a single person when i went through. Thats whn i got to meet pinocchio.

    Are you talking about Character Connection? We happened on it once just after it opened. My kids met Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Chip and Dale all within 10 minutes of walking in the door. It was great. I don't know how crowded it is now.

    We had fun with the characters while in the Backyard BBQ in Fort Wilderness a couple of years ago. Seeing them in costumes that they don't normally dress in makes for great photos too!!!!

    we didn't get autographs but we did get pics with mary, burt and a penguin. we were lucky enough to spot them just as the first parade at mvmcp was ending 3 years ago. burt was hilarious and completely into his character (one of my most memorable moments). we also got figment at epcot. he had just walked out and we happened to be walking by.

    When I was last in Animal Kingdom, my family and I stopped for a drink and ice-cream in Africa, I can't remember the name of the service counter. Anyway, we went round the side and sat at the back of the counter and it turns out that there was a door where the characters came out ready to go and pose for pictures on the other side of the wall.
    We managed to meet the monkey guy from the Jungle Book and had a private greeting with him for about 10minutes before he walked out to meet eveyoen else! It was great, we've stopped there for drinks several times and it seems that nobody knows there are tables round the back because we always sit there alone. It's a great place to meet characters without a big queue.

    All you need is Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust!

    I met Clopin a few years back in France at Epcot. He was awesome and liked my shirt since it was purple (his favorite color, too). He even had a purple marker to sign with!
