My Daughter receives a proposal, the leader of the free world and Peter Pan Epcot Training meet

Jordyn and I spent an absolutely lovely day at Epcot yesterday.  We took in some rides and shows, ate some fish and had a Kakigori, but I thought I’d begin with sharing some of our character stories at Epcot.  We decided to meet Chip n Dale, Duffy the Disney Bear and ran across Peter Pan at an Epcot Training meet.

On this day I just let my daughter have her own time with the characters, rather than taking turns or joining in the meets.  We saw a brief line for Chip n Dale and as we approached, the Cast Member asked us to stand by for 3 minutes while the chipmunks went to get some nuts.  When they returned, Dale was really excited to see Jordyn.

Dale picked up a leaf and proposed to her, which cracked everyone in the area up.    I had to figure out that Dale was saying, “I’ll never leaf(ve) you.”  Aww, what a precious, unplanned moment.Chip n Dale Chipmunks Epcot Walt Disney World

Jordyn said that Dale must be a fan of KennythePirate.  I said, “He must be a fan of you.”  Many people recognize my girls way before they notice me, which is fine because I don’t go to the parks to be recognized.  I go to enjoy time with my family.Chip n Dale Chipmunks Epcot Walt Disney World

We talked about how Epcot could use some more unique characters and decided we’d stop by to see Duffy the Disney Bear.  There were ZERO people in line to meet him at 2:52pm on a Saturday afternoon.  Duffy gets a lot of smack from character fans, but he is cute.  Duffy the Disney Bear Epcot Walt Disney World

And he is the leader of the free world.  Salute Duffy!Duffy the Disney Bear Epcot Walt Disney World

Around 4pm we were passing the International Gateway and noticed Peter Pan was out for an Epcot character training meet and we dropped in to meet him.  There were only a couple of people in line to see him.  These meets typically occur between 11am and 4pm randomly.Peter Pan Epcot Training Meet International Gateway Walt Disney World

Thanks! We've caught a few good character paloozas (thanks to you). I think our best meet was evil queen. My son was terrified.

Hi Kenny, Seeing this chip and dale reminded me-during marathon weekend races a number of Epcot characters were out in their country garb-I saw chip and dale in Japan, daisy in Norway and Donald in Canada. I believe years ago the characters were out in those outfits. Do they do that anymore? I also stumbled (literally, it was during the marathon) on Robin Hood, little John and friar tuck! I told them I was so excited to meet them and little John bent down and kissed my sweaty head. Any chance they'll be out again?

No, those costumes aren't used regularly. Robin Hood makes some appearances at Character Palooza

My daughter and I love Duffy and my husband always moans and groans when we get in line to see him. His interaction is always fun and he is a sweet fluffy bear. I always tell my husband give the "little" guy a break.
