Thank you! I kind of wanted to know who would be there at Epcot? I do also know Mulan is at the Chinese Pavillion.

It would make my kids day to finally meet Max. I will cross my fingers we run into him in 2 weeks.

Oh I hope Max is still there in April. We saw him a few years back, and DS has been looking for him every trip but hasn't seen him. He'd be thrilled.

Your best bet would be either American Adventure or World Showplace. Also, he might replace Goofy at the entrance so you never know!

Showplace is gate between Canada and UK on the right

Lots of character fun!!

It does sound like a BUNCH of those (if not all) were characters out in training, you can find them in a bunch of places around Epcot, (smaller crowds, shorter sets, helps them not get overwhelmed!)

The little pathways behind the character spot, between it and Imagination

The big blue-ish gates between Canada & UK

The area between USA & Italy

The International Gateway

Are all areas they can be found, and it can be at any time of day, so keep your eyes peeled!a

Those are all the places that character training happens in Epcot, but there is no schedule to them you can plan to, and you're very likely to see no characters at any of those locations. Be on the lookout for sure, but don't get your hopes too high.

I hope we see Max on our trip too. We are big "A Goofy Movie" fans and the Goofy and Max segments of the Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas and Twice Upon a Christmas movies are my kids' favorites. I'm surprised that Chip and Dale aren't in the mix though.

Chip and Dale meet daily outside of Innoventions West.

The list above is in reference to the random characters that appeared TODAY, it has no affect on who will appear tomorrow. Epcot's regular/daily characters are completely unrelated.
