    Bolt has been replaced by Up.

    If you go at 5 in the afternoon though, you'll be pleasantly surprised......

    It's not about UP. It about characters. I called it "Character Palooza". They bring out a bunch of characters, some hard to find at other times, and you can go around and see them all. Then a half hour later they rotate with a bunch more. We saw the Evil Queen, Governor Ratcliffe, The Queen of Hearts, Mary Poppins and her Penguin, Jafar, Gepetto and Pinocchio, Chip and Dale, Minnie, Goofy and Max.... and I might have missed one or 2!

    I had "Character Palooza" written in my trip planning book on a list of things I wanted to do. I also used that book as an autograph book. The Evil Queen started looking through the book, making fun of the stuff in it. She made fun of my term "Character Palooza" and called over to her character handler "Is THAT what we're calling it now????" It was a lot of fun with time for a lot of interaction.

    I initially heard they only did it on non Fantasmic days, but now hear it's been happening on Fantasmic days as well. It was one of the highlights of our trip!

    We discovered the Animation character meet and greet last year - thanks for this information as well! I love the term Character Palooza! We don't do much at DHS - kids are too old for Playhouse Disney and too young for RNR and TOT - but they still love meeting characters. We'll definitely go around 5 p.m.
