Rare characters we've met:
Gideon (November 2003 at MK)
Prince John (November 2003 at MK)
Terk (November 2003 at MK)
Brer Rabbit for a quick kiss for Mum and a high five for me, as it was during the Frontierland Hoedown (February 2013 at MK)
I'm sure we met Mrs Incredible at Hollywood Studios. February 2012
Piglet? Is he rare?
And I'm 90% sure I met Donald in Dinoland USA at AK in November 2003. I remember coming out of a shop and going to meet him.

My DH and I met Hades, Hercules and Meg on our honeymoon in 2000. We also met Flik, Tarzan and Jane, Terk, Rafiki, Esmeralda, Pocahontas, Wendy from Peter Pan in 2006...
Disney used to have so many cool characters. Now it's the same....princesses, fab five, chip and dale....we had so much fun character hunting on our honeymoon!! Fond memories....

Jack Sparrow and Mack together. Not at a Halloween party--private meet and greet arranged by a wonderful CM, as special pixie dust for dd's birthday trip. <3

The rarest one I've ever heard of is Agent P (Perry the Platypus). He has only appeared for photos with guests once, at DHS on the premiere day of the Phineas and Ferb movie.

While Mickey certainly isn't rare, some believe Scuba Mickey is a hard one to catch (though he's been appearing since 1983). I introduced DD to him yesterday:

SCUBA MICKEY

So jealous! Last year, I was down there for a solo trip to run the inaugural ToT 10 Miler and they were appearing at DtD. I tried to get over to see them but the line was sooo huge that I would probably have been late for the race if I tried to do it!

I know they're going to appear this year at the MNSSHP but I'm not sure when I'll next get to that. Oh well, someday.

Anyone know if Lumiere ever comes out for M&Gs? My DD is obsessed with him, but from what I've read, he is only in the parade and the show at DHS. We are going over Labor Day so I wanted to check if anyone has had any luck running into Lumiere. Thanks!

Never as a M&G that I've seen. He also appears in impressive form at Enchanted Takes With Belle. A Lumiere-obsessed fan should not miss him there.

Thanks! That is probably going to be our first stop in MK.

He is life-size (meaning small), but among the best audio-animatronic characters I've seen. I'm afraid there isn't any opportunity for photos with him, but you can take pictures of him.

The entire time, I just couldn't understand how the heck they brought him to life.

Just as a tip, I would not do that during the day. I would go later on just before the parades or something. It will be MUCH less packed at that point because a lot of people will be getting seats for the parade.

Good to know...I was thinking of hitting it first thing in the AM...but maybe that's not the best idea. We just went back in January and my DD is only 3 and under 40" so we are pretty limited with what she can ride. I'm hoping that we'll get to see and do everything since we won't be waiting for the usual long-line rides. *fingers crossed*

Do they make regular appearances at the parks?
We saw them doing a round up dance in frontier land on the 24 hour night. I now think clarabelle cow is one of my new fav characters! She is sooo cute!!!

Rare characters

In 2000 I happen to see rabbit in the back alley across from Rose and Crown. I have never heard of him at WDW since.

For us, it was Brer Rabbit and Thumper and Miss Bunny. It was January 2011 at Camp Minnie-Mickey and there were no lines for any of the characters. It was great!
