When I called for the Ft. Wilderness information, I asked about AoA and they told me that all character meet and greets are scheduled that day. They didn't have the names of the characters for the m&g.

Hmm, I was going to get an early start at another park but I'd like to hop around and maybe meet some characters. Hoping to maybe see Lilo at Polynesian and Louie at Port Orleans. Thanks for this info!
