DD met Prince Caspian - he had no line so we had him all to ourselves for awhile - I think she was 9 when she met him - he was her first crush

I list characters by their level of Rarity here: WDW CHARACTER FREQUENCY

For myself, I'd have to go with Queen Elinor - as she's never done M&Gs, and only appeared for a quick 5 minutes during Merida's coronation.

BRAVE
Great list! I have a few on rare and uncommon because of LTM long lost friends, true love week, and fairy week (although I missed Silvermist. Also got Terrence&Liverlips from Frontier Hoedown, MNSHHP characters likes Dwarves, Genie/Abu, Tarzan group & villains, SWW characters, and recently luck finding Tweedles& Yellow Rabbit. But probably Darby, Flik& Mr. Russell are ones that I've met that don't come out much (if at all as far as I know) anymore.

Excited today to mark Wendy off my list of characters to meet.

How and where did you see Kermit and Miss Piggy? My 4 year old is obsessed with the Muppets and would love to see them.

Captain Jack is only out at special parties...MVMCP or MNSSHP...or something like that. Only the show, is right.

This past January(2013) we met...Goofy and Max together, Aladdin's Genie, Baloo and Louie (together), Mr. penguin...several others at a surprise meet n' greet in Epcot. It was fun!!!!

Captain Hook and Smee are hard to find...we are there a lot and can't seem to find them. I know sometimes around adventure land, but no luck for us.

I met them in 2006 at Hollywood Studios. A CM arranged a meet and greet for my family with them after the parade.

For me it was the Old Hag. I must have looked like such a goof because when I saw her I got all excited and started saying, "It's her, it's her!" I came very close to having my MAN card revoked that day.

She's by no means rare, but we had a devil of a time catching Tiana. Always seemed to be walking up right as they were shutting down the line. Just poor luck (or poor planning, you could say) on our part. Always so close, yet so far away...

We too spent several trips trying to find them. Finally had luck at Characterpoolza last October ~ they were only out for one rotation and only a handful of people got the chance for pics and autographs with them.

The rarest character I've ever met was Brer Rabbit at the Halloween Party a while back.

At the time they weren't so rare but they now are but I have met Clopin (Hunchback), Milo Thatch and Vinnie (Atlantis), Dreamfinger and Figment (when I was VERY little), Prince Caspian and Figment (the walk around character) when I was younger.

I'm glad to see someone else met Caspian too. He was my first crush too and he called me the Princess of Pennsylvania.

I'd LOVE to meet my all time favorite character, Roger Rabbit, but alas, I hear because of disputes with the author of his book, he was retired Last year, though, my mom emailed WDW and asked if they'd send me an autographed picture from Roger for my birthday. Well, WDW emailed DL and asked if they could help me out since Roger doesn't have pictures at WDW anymore (my mom got a copy of the email so I saw it XD). About a week later, I got an envelope from Disneyland (I think it was DL Guest Relations) and there inside was a black and white picture of Roger in one of the parks signed "To Katie Love, Roger Rabbit". Closest I'm probably I'm going to get to meeting Roger so it means a lot.

We met them in Oct 2005 at a meet and greet they used to have at HS! They used stamps for autographs.... adorable.

You see some rare characters on the course of the WDW Marathon and Half Marathon. It's the only time I've seen Davy Crocket and Zorro (on horseback no less). There are also characters in the post-race area that I'm pretty sure non-runners can get into. I feel like I see Max there every year. I didn't realize he was rare! I'd love to find a Mr. Toad meet and greet, but I don't think that's going to happen.
