Olaf’s Meet and greet is located to the left of WDW Radio Studio which is the current home to Star Wars:  Path of the Jedi.  It is across from Star tours.  On the first day there was no  permanent signage for the new meet area they are calling “Celebrity Spotlight.”

Only a tent board was available to point guests toward the meet and greet.  It’s possible that more signage will come soon as this was a soft opening day.

You’ll go just past the entrance for the film and head to the covered meet and greet area.

A wait time board is posted out front.

It is an exterior, covered queue which will shield you from the rain and sun, but it offers no air conditioning or fans.  A small line like this took me almost 30 minutes, but it was opening day.Olaf meet and greet in Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World (2)

You’ll notice a similar area behind Celebrity Spotlight.  It will soon become home to Sorcerer Mickey and Minnie’s new meet.  A line for that will form in the rear close to Sci-Fi Dine-In theater.

After completing your outside meet, you’ll join a small line indoors.  Walls aren’t decorated, I would presume it’s because they can easily change the theme for future meets.  Air conditioning wasn’t running or wasn’t set very low during the soft opening.Olaf meet and greet in Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World (4)

At the end of the short line you’ll find the meet and greet room.  It is painted bright blue.  Again, it would make it simple to change themes when they decide to move another character into the space.Olaf meet and greet in Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World (5)

Olaf is happy to finally meet guests in Florida.  He’s been meeting in California for a while now, but hasn’t offered regular meets in Walt Disney World before.  His set is a fun beach scene with an umbrella, sunglasses, lemonade and sunscreen.  Olaf is ready to tour Disney World.Olaf meet and greet in Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World (7) Olaf meet and greet in Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World (8)

Backdrop is cute and the wait wasn’t bad for a first day “test and adjust.”  I’ll drop back in another day with my kids to check on the meet again.Olaf meet and greet in Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World (12)

What do you think of his new meet area?  Anyone have any questions?  Be sure to share so your friends can meet him too!

  1. I had heard he was going to be dressed in his grass skirt and sunglasses for summer to be different than the meet and greet in California. Any chance of that being added, or is the only difference going to be this summer backdrop?
