Part of what makes a Disney vacation so magical is interacting with your favorite characters. At times, guests can see rare characters at their Walt Disney World Resort. During special events, rare characters will often greet guests such as at special After Hour Events and also at many of the runDisney events.

In August 2022, guests visiting the World Showcase today at EPCOT were in for a treat as they stopped to meet Mulan in the China Pavilion.  Not only could guests meet with Mulan, but guests could also meet Li Shang for the first time in seemingly forever. You can see photos from these interactions HERE.

The traditional meet-and-greet opportunities are great, but there is something extra magical when you meet characters where you least expect them.

Today guests visiting EPCOT received a HUGE surprise. Those who subscribe to Character Locator know that you can meet some pretty rare and amazing characters at EPCOT. The information for both schedules and locations is only available on Character Locator, and this is a great app for locating your favorite Disney characters.

Check out this fun meet and greet:


Mirabel is out today in EPCOT near the World Traveler gift shop. This is a brief, unscheduled meeting that does not appear on the My Disney Experience app. While she was at this location guests could take photos with her. This is such an amazing opportunity to meet Mirabel.

At this time, Walt Disney World has not announced a meet-and-greet opportunity with Mirabel. The only time guests can see Mirabel is at Magic Kingdom for the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade.

Today, Mirabel is greeting guests in EPCOT near the World Traveler gift shop.
