Character meets at Disney’s Hollywood in Janauary

Walt Disney World, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Character Palooza, Green Army Man
Shape up soldier!

Character Palooza ususally goes on hiatus during the winter months, but it appears that it will return soon.  I received the following information from my source that’s close to Character Palooza at Hollywood Studios:

Beginning January 6th, Fantasmic! Area Sets (Character Palooza as we know it) are being scheduled.

With Fantasmic! beginning at 7:00 pm, the sets are likely to be held at 2:30, 3:30 and 4:30 pm.  All three sets should be held on Streets of America, but all entertainment is subject to change without notice.

  1. Thanks for the update! We did CP in October 2012 and met so many characters…so I was disappointed that during this trip they were supposed to be on hiatus. However, I heard about this post from another guest at Animal Kingdom and today we caught the 3:25 set. In appearance: Mary Poppins with Penguin, Pinnochio, Green Army Man, Pocahontas & Meeko, Mr. Smee, Captain Hook, Aladdin & Jasmine, Snow White & The Queen. They were only out for about 30 minutes. Again, thanks for keeping us updated! The characters are one of my favorite parts of Disney!

  2. Any suggestions on when to see captain hook and smee or is it totally random? Would it increase our odds to go multiple days in a row to dhs or are the same characters at palozza usually there each session for a week? We use the app loyally. My son is all about characters and is really wanting to meet captain hook.

  3. Kenny, last time I was there, palooza was in the animation bldg as well but no rain as I recall. Is there a way to know for sure where it will be on a certain day? Also, where/when is the dance party typically held? Thanks

  4. FWIW, it was going on last night, but in the Animation Pavilion (perhaps due to rain?). I saw Tweedle Dee & Dum, Chip & Dale, Pluto, and Rafiki, all in the building signing autographs and taking pictures.

  5. I’m excited about this. I was sad knowing it wouldn’t be there at all in February, but knowing there is a possibility is wonderful. However, I feel like I’m changing my schedule DAILY, with all the new information I’m getting these days. Crazy! Thanks for your updates, I seriously use your website and app ALL THE TIME planning for my trip. Without you, I would probably never get to see all the characters I wanted (which is as many as possible).
