    Absolutely! Captain Hook used to have one across from POTC. My friend and I sat there for quite awhile waiting on a show to start and he went back and forth several times to the meet and greet several times. Strange, first he was 'short' Captain Hook, when he'd go backstage and come back, he'd be 'tall' Captain Hook!:thumbsup2

    The others are scattered around all the parks, someone I'm sure will post a list soon.

    It's very difficult to find villains around nowadays....

    while he's not strictly a villain, we did just see Beast at EPCOT in France down near the water. He came out when Belle took a break and then she came back and joined him.

    And again, not a "true" villain, but pretty naughty nonetheless -- you can see Stitch several places, including breakfast at Ohanas and DHS.

    The wicked stepmother and step sisters have been at 1900 Park Fare when I've been there for dinner (not a very good dinner, but good interaction)

    What villans are you looking for? I have also seen the stepmother and stepsisters in the mornings right in front of the garden where you see storytime with Belle. As PP mentioned, Capt. Hook is sometimes in front of POTC, we met him there in May but he was not there last week. Other than that, I really haven't seen any of the villans except at special events.

    Captain Hook no longer does regular meet and greets, and unfortunately it's becoming more difficult to find villains.

    The only regular villain meet and greet is the Tremaine family at the storybook theatre at MK.

    We saw Jafar and the Evil Queen in the Animation building at HS. They came out around 5:00, I think this is a pretty regular thing. There were about 10 or 12 characters that came out with them, but I think they were the only villians.

    Didn't they use to have that at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian, but to many kids got scared which is why they got rid of them?

    They use to have the Disney Villain characters (Cruela De Vil and Captain Hook along with other characters) for the dinner buffet at 1900 Park Fare in 2001. They replaced the Disney villain's in 2002 with other disney characters :)

    I have read in other places that there was a Disney Villains character breakfast, but the characters were replaced by Pooh and friends.

    However, there was an issue with kids being a little bit terrified by these characters :)

    I could be totally incorrect, or they could have tried the Disney villains character meals at 1900 Park Fare for a few years.

    When we were there 4 years ago in addition to Hook we saw the Queen from Snow White and the one from Sleeping Beauty....my kids loved them...but I do think MOST kids would be afraid!

    When I was there in October, my friends and I happened to walk into a room in the animation building area (but not the huge area where all the characters are) and Jafar and the Genie were having a facedoff. And the only other people in the room were the character attendants. It was kind of awesome. After we watched for a few minutes other people noticed and came as well. I am not sure if this is a regular thing, but I must say it was an awesome surprise.

    Captain Hook was also there. They rotated quite frequently when we were in there. Besides them the list included: The Incredibles, Mickey, Minnie, and Stitch just to name a few.
