Magic Kingdom – Ultimate Character Checklist

Meeting your favorite Disney characters is usually a top priority for most guests visiting Disney World. While visiting characters can certainly be done on a whim, for the best experience possible, it’s best to have a plan and even some FastPasses with you at the beginning of the trip. That plan begins with knowing where the characters are located in the parks.

This park packs a punch when it comes to meeting characters because Magic Kingdom has more characters than any other park. Even if you can find some of these characters in other spots, in Magic Kingdom, they will be wearing unique costumes so you may want to visit them all!





 

We’ve put together an all-in-one checklist for you to easily see where the characters are located, what kind of environment you’ll meet them in (3 cheers for air conditioning!), whether you can reserve a spot with FastPass+, and the times you’ll be able to greet them. Use this list to plan your day meeting characters at Magic Kingdom Park! You may want to bookmark this page and share it with others in your party or you fellow Disney lovers.

Times are current as of September 10, 2018. Times and characters may vary and change. Always check the My Disney Experience App or Times Guide in the park for the most up to date information.

About Cindy E. Nykamp

Cindy E. Nykamp. I’ve been a crazy fan of all things Disney since I was a very young girl. I was lucky to marry a guy who loved Disney just as much or more than I did. After years of dreaming and waiting, my first trip to Walt Disney World was in 2004 and I fell even more in love with Disney. We made multiple trips, year after year. Another dream came true in 2010 when our family moved to Orlando and Disney World became our backyard playground. We love visiting often and learning more tips to share. I am a mom, teacher, and RunDisney addict. I am also an amateur photographer and have thoroughly enjoyed taking thousands of pictures at Disney World!
