    Does anyone know what charcters you can meet? I know there are all the princesses, and micky and the gang, but are there more obscure characters like merlin or the cats from aristocats? And which characters can talk and which just mime? If you dont know, can you direct me to where to find out? I checked the disney planning site with no luck.

    When is your trip - there are lots of changes happening over the next 6 months so keep that in mind for your planning.

    I take lots of character photos (linked in my signature) in a variety of different locations.

    In that case, I'd expect over a quarter of the character info to change. Here is what Disney has announced:

    This fall
    Periwinkle joins Tinker Bell's Nook
    New Belle M&G at MK
    New Ariel M&G at MK
    Pete's Silly Sideshow with Minnie, Daisy, Donald, and Goofy at MK
    Ralph at DHS

    Unknown
    Beastly Bazaar opens at DAK

    Next fall (2013)
    New Princess Hall for Cindy, Rapunzel, Aurora, etc at MK



    Here are rumored changes that Disney hasn't commented on:

    This fall
    Beast leaving Epcot, going to Be Our Guest Restaurant at MK
    Marie leaving Epcot, going to Main Street MK
    Mrs Incredible leaving DHS
    Gaston joining MK lineup

    Unknown
    Chip & Dale relocating from Tomorrowland to Frontierland
    Camp M/M closing and characters relocating at DAK
    Winnie the Pooh and friends leaving DAK
    Character Spot being remodeled at EC



    There are more rumors out there but these have the most credit. There are also more changes that haven't hit the on-line rumor ville yet - stay tuned...

    Handled very well there Berlioz. I've also heard Donald would be reduced to one meet area at epcot. Heard that Hook MIGHT return to MK. There is indeed other rumors, but I haven't been given clearance to share everything I've heard yet.

    I track all rumors on the left bar of my blog in the rumors section.

    Does anyone have any info. on Pocahontas? Since they're supposed to be relocating characters from Camp Minnie Mickey, where will she go? I wish AK weren't the only place to meet her :(

    Stick with Brenna and Kenny and you have Disney characters covered about as best as can be. Both are great...and together, no stone unturned. :thumbsup2

    Peter Pan, Hook, Smee are by Pirates of Carribean in MK; Mary Poppins is usually in the Front of MK by town hall along with Pinocchio and Gephetto; We've seen Dopey in EP; and Buzz, Woodey, Green Army Men and Jessie at HS. The fairy godmother; evil step sisters and step mom in the back of the castle. Who else are you looking for? Hope that helps..:thumbsup2

    The websites mentioned are the best. If you have a smart phone, you can download the two official disney parks apps and they also tell you who is scheduled to be out and about. The apps are not very inclusive though, so they tend to miss a lot of characters.

    Peter was moved to the entrance of Adventureland earlier this year.

    Hook, Smee, Pinocchio, and Geppetto have all left MK.

    Dopey used to be regular with Snow, but is now a random character.

    Jessie used to be regular at Studios, but is now at MK with random appearances at Studios.

    Info on Poppins, Woody, Buzz, GAM, Godmother, and Tremaines is still accurate!

    Periwinkle joined us on September 9th. As far as Belle is concerned....

    As of right now, as soon as Enchanted Tales With Belle opens, there will be NO meet and greet with Belle in the Magic Kingdom. ETWB is an attraction. NOT a meet and greet. The only people who will have pictures with Belle will be those chosen to be in the show with her. There will also be no autographs. You will be able to meet Belle, have pictures and get autographs in EPCOT.

    Do you know this for a fact, or are you basing this solely on reports from the recent test-and-adjust period? Genuinely curious.

    I know this for a fact. I work PhotoPass in the Magic Kingdom. This is what we are being told. However, as we have also been told, anything can change.
