  1. Thank you so much for posting this. Do any characters meet at the all stars, pop century, or art of animation? Also, some of the outfits seemed to duplicate (ex: AK lodge, wilderness lodge, and yacht/beach), so do you happen to know if ones such as port Orleans, Coronado springs, Saratoga springs, and old key west duplicate as well?

  2. Kenny, Does the security at the resorts give non guests a hard time getting into the resorts if they’re not staying there?

  3. Hi kenny happy holidays!!!I will be coming to orlando driving from nj once again to stay at my wifes cousins house.we were wondering is there anything cool going on or any special characters to see??we will be there by December 30 and stay one week.We were thinking about trying the hollywood studios light party.

    1. Christmas overlays for animal kingdom characters, Duffy is santa at ep, goofy is santa at dhs and dtd, Phineas and ferb in Christmas gear. Castle lighting, Christmas castle and Tomorrowland shows, epcot storytellers, dhs Osborne lights, ak Christmas parade. Mrs. Incredible in new Incredibles dance party. Dance party at hat with basic characters

  4. Ooohhh. I’m taking a friend to the Orlando airport Saturday morning, and I was thinking about lunch at DTD or Sanaa and maybe going to a park by myself, but now I’m thinking maybe I should resort hop. Thanks, Kenny!

  5. Very very fun. We will fr sure meet the ones at WL on Sunday it is right after we check in and we have no plans until 7 that night for dinner.

  6. Thanks for the information Kenny. We arrive on Saturday and I’m hoping to visit some of the characters at the resorts if it fits our schedule. This will definitely make my planning easier!
