What do you consider a rare character? One who does not meet in the parks often? Perhaps one that is from an older movie or show? Whatever your definition of a rare character is, they sure a special treat!

Disney loves to pull these rare characters out for special events. For example, we got to meet Duffy, Remy and Emilie, Jiminy Cricket, Mushu, Miguel, and more during the recent Wine and Dine post race event. We also got to meet Moana and the princesses with their PRINCES at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party.

Perhaps the most rare character of all is meeting for Lunar New Year celebrations! And, this next event (which takes place on several nights this month) is bringing some really rare and unique character meet and greet opportunities!
