Opened: Reopened in June 2013 after an expansion that doubled its capacity.
Across from Innoventions West and behind Fountain View Starbucks. The Land Pavilion would be directly to the right.
Extra Magic Hours: Evening.
Type: Character Meet and Greet.
Similar To: Adventurers Outpost Mickey and Minnie Meet.
Scary Factor: Only for the very young surprised at how big the characters are in real life. For the apprehensive, considering watching a YouTube video or two to get youngsters accustomed to interacting with the characters.
What to Expect:
Guests wait outside the meet and greet area in the air-conditioned queue.
When it’s your turn, you’ll enter the room with three characters that each meet individually.
Mickey is usually up first.
Followed by Goofy.
There is usually a short wait in between characters as the group in front of you finishes up with their pictures and autographs.
FastPass+: Yes, high Tier 2 priority. Character Spot FastPass+ are in very limited supply due to the low capacity and are highly unlikely to be available as a 4th FastPass+. Posted afternoon waits are usually 25 to 40 minutes, which is longer than most other Tier 2 attractions.
Total Average Experience Time with FastPass+: 15 minutes.
What You Miss Using FastPass+:
Very little. You’ll wait on this side of the barrier with standby guests on the right, who have the opportunity to watch a Mickey cartoon on a few televisions, but that’s it.
4th FastPass+ Availability:
Due to the limited number of FastPass+ available due to the limited capacity, Character Spot is almost always completely booked a day or more in advance. You can still score a 4th or subsequent FastPass+, but only if someone else cancels.
Expect to Wait:
When to Go: Before 10am, after 7pm, or with FastPass+.
Commentary: “It is what it is” so to speak. This is a great opportunity to meet three in-demand characters in their classic outfits in an air-conditioned setting. The only way to make it better would be if there were more characters or you could get a picture with all of them together.
