Updates on Anna and Elsa, what’s going on with Tink and Friends and special character meets

Updates on Anna and Elsa, what’s going on with Tink and Friends and special character meets

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

What’s Anna and Elsa’s schedule?

As of today, February 23, Anna and Elsa move back to another 9:00 am start time.  It’s been rather confusing with them switching the schedule back and forth each week, but they are supposed to continue with the 9:00 am opening for the foreseeable future and hope to expand from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm soon.  I recommend arriving at Epcot one hour before park opening and making a run to their location.  Get a Fastpass+ for either Test Track or Soarin’ and riding the other late at night.  If you are willing to split your party, you could FP+ Soarin and do Test Track as Single Rider.

What’s going on with Tinker Bell’s Nook?

Rosetta was supposed to become the de facto pixie to meet opposite Tinker Bell in the Nook this Spring, but something strange began occurring, other fairies began appearing randomly.  Why is this?  Well, you may recall that I mentioned a while back that Tinker Bell’s Nook will eventually close and it will be ONLY Tinker Bell at Town Square Theater.  So, the Magic Kingdom is allowing guests some final opportunities to meet the other fairies rather randomly over the next few weeks.

Will the new Pirate Fairy appear at Walt Disney World?


When is Character Palooza on X Day or in X Month?

I get a TON of people asking me when Character Palooza will be when Fantasmic is a certain time (many not listed on my site) or in a certain month.  I try to only provide details that have been provided to me and that I have observed or friends have observed.  It’s a totally unpublished meet and I have to do some digging to find this information.

The basic rule is that the first Character Palooza occurs 4.5 hours before the LAST Fantasmic of the day, but it may not be exact.  With that said, I just don’t have the time to answer all the questions about when it MIGHT happen in June, on a certain day of the week or in 2015.  I’m not trying to be rude, but I do work a real job and have a family and can’t answer every question for someone hoping to hyper plan their day in June, July or August.  I provide the information each week in my app and have a basic overview on this site.  If you don’t see it here, it’s because I don’t have that information yet.  Please understand that I don’t answer every question concerning a character’s meet and greet time, because all that data is in my app and is linked to on this site for free if you don’t wish to purchase the app and support the site.  Thank you for understanding!

Thanks for all the great info! We were able to meet Anna and Elsa Saturday morning. I left our breakfast at 8:48 while the rest of my party finished eating. Unfortunately I only got to see belle since our reservation was 8:25 but I did get to eat. The rest of my party joined me in line around 9:15 and we met the princesses by 9:35. I was probably the end of the first row in line. And character palooza today was great! They came out around 5:40 and today it was genie, Minnie, max, Stich, Jessie, meeko, penguins, green army men, queen grimhilde (Snow White queen), gepetto and Pinocchio and belle. There might've been one or 2 more but I forgot. Thanks for the info!!!

Thanks so much for this post. We are headed to Disney the week of March 16th. First time for both kids!! My daughter is obsessed with the fairies so I'm really hoping she will get to me more than Tinkerbell. I'm surprised of the closing of Tinker Bell's Nook. The new movie is set to be released early April.

We are scheduled to go to Epcot on a day when the open early, 8am. Do you think the Frozen girls will still show up at 9am? Do you have any update on how long the wait has been first thing in the morning?

Yes, they start at 9am everyday. I would go straight there when emh begins for the shortest wait.

Wednesday 26th of February 2014

We were at the parks on vacation last week during East Coast school winter break. The lines were 4+ hours to meet Anna and Elsa at Norway. We were so disappointed that they changed to 11am because we planned an early breakfast at Akhersus to get in early. We didn't even bother with the line but took pictures of them from the shop. However, I am on the phone right now with Disney making a change to my next resort reservation and he told me the Frozen characters are now in Fantasyland. I don't see that reported anywhere else. Could he be right?

We were at MK today. My daughter (and I) were excited to see what fairy would be with Tink. Unfortunately she was all by herself :( we'll check again on Friday but hopefully they didn't start the change early :(
