After Hollywood Studios chose to remove the Pixar Countdown to Fun Parade and Disney Channel Rocks from it’s entertainment offerings, the schedules for Character Palooza were changed dramatically. It’s left people wondering when and where the character free-for-all of rare characters will take place.
Here’s the new rules:
On a night when TWO Fantasmics are performed, Character Palooza will take place only at 6:00 pm on Streets of America
On a night when ONE Fantasmic is performed, Character Palooza will take place at 4:30 pm at Echo Lake & 5:30 pm at Streets of America
When there is no Fantasmic scheduled, there will be no Character Palooza.
Given the current park schedule at Hollywood Studios, it would mean that Character Palooza or “Pop-up Surprise” as some Cast Members refer to it, will only appear ONCE per night at 6:00 pm on the Streets of America now through August 20th.
Here’s the description of Character Palooza that is posted on the top left of the blog. It contains a list of characters you might find.
