Question Character Meet & Greet with Chase Disney Card. Locations?

Just wondering where the Chase Disney card character meet and greet is (what park, and where in that park), and what you have to do for it. I already have the card. I'm also looking for experiences - was it a long wait? What characters were there?



TIA

We did it a couple of years ago. It's in Epcot I believe (future world) We had Mickey, Minnie and Goofy. All you need to do is show your card. Wasn't a long line.

We went to Epcot twice on our last visit. You can get a free picture once a day each day you go to Epcot.

It was the same Mickey, Minnie and Pluto. for us. The wait one day was about 10 minutes. The second day was about 45 minutes. But it was hot and we didnt care to wait inside in the air, we were tired that day.

Yep, it's at Epcot. I believe the time is around 1-4? And you bring your Disney Visa to show for ID. Mickey, Minnie and Goofy did a great job, and the photographer will even take pictures with your camera for you! Definitely a plus for Disney Visa holders! We do it every year! And they don't rush you, they take time with you, and it really is a nice refuge from the heat. It's in one of the Innoventions buildings to the right. (If I'm wrong, someone correct me Enjoy your pictures!

It is in the same building as the Segways. We did it twice in December. One day it was Mickey, Goofy and Minnie. The second day is was Minnie and Goofy.

On the second day my son was sleeping in the stroller and Minnie made us wheel him over and took a picture with him sleeping. some of the best character interaction.

Yes, it's in the Innoventions building right by the segways. 1:30-4:30.

You can get one free picture per account, per day.

I have always recommended this as one of the highlights of our trips. My kids never really wanted to meet the characters out in the open in the parks, but they loved the surprise of seeing which characters were there each day (it's various combinations of 2 or 3 characters) and the private interaction was very nice for them.

The wait times seem to vary depending on the day. We usually travel to Disney at the end of May and do the character meet about 3 times per trip. We never experienced a wait of more than 5 minutes. This last trip (late Sept/early Oct) there was a massive line every time we tried to stop by, so we didn't bother. One day we got there about 20 minutes before it started and decided to wait because I really wanted a photo of my kids with 4 generations at Disney-- it was also very cute to see how excited great-grandpa was to meet and hug.

Wait times definitely vary. We've gone by there 4 different times. Only once have we stopped because that was the only time the line wasn't wrapping around past the segways. There was only one person in line that time. It really was a nice character greeting. You won't know who's there until you go in. We got Minnie and Goofy. They don't allow anybody else in until you're done so it does feel very private. You don't feel rushed because you don't have the next family watching you. It is a nice meet & greet if you're not particular about which of the fab 5 you'll see. I don't think I'd necessarily go out of my way for it but if you're between rides/attractions and you're in Future World then it's worth popping into Innoventions to at least see if there's a line. It's behind the fire house game.

As far as the picture - do they print it out right there? Or do you have to go somewhere for that?


TIA

You're given a voucher that you bring to the photo area near the front of the park on the left just as you're passing Spaceship Earth.

Yes, and it's only good for that day so don't forget to stop there on your way out.

You can select any picture you want and they will add a border of your choice. The photos are saved to a photopass card so you can order more later if you want.


The CM at the meet'n'greet will take pictures with your camera as well.
