There is nothing quite like meeting your favorite Disney and Pixar characters while at the Disney Parks. Of course meeting classics such as Mickey and his pals and the princesses are great, but there is something magical about meeting rare characters.

The Walt Disney Company is celebrating 100 Years of Wonder and that includes a long list of films and characters that have been created throughout the years.

This week has offered many great characters found all throughout Walt Disney World. From a 2319 to characters from A Bugs Life, and even a boy band. We love seeing the first appearance of Mickey and his pals in their platinum outfits for the 100 Years of Wonder celebrating the Walt Disney Company.

This week marks the beginning of a special celebration for Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Disney celebrates 25 years of magic at Disney’s Animal Kingdom this month on Earth Day! Since it opened on April 22, 1998, this one-of-a-kind theme park has offered awe-inspiring animal encounters, thrilling attractions, and larger-than-life musical stage shows.

This month, there will be new ways to join in the celebration of Earth Day and this milestone, including new sweet and savory treats and specialty merchandise in the park. This will also include great meet-and-greets and fun activities.

Earlier this week we spotted rare characters on the flotillas and a great fairy meet and greet. Disney also announced a special preview meet and greet for Moana at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

It seems as though new characters will be greeting guests throughout the week. Yesterday, guests could meet King Louie and Baloo from Jungle Book.

Today, joining the rare list of characters is Jane and also Terk from Disney’s animated film Tarzan. Terk can currently be seen in the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade. This is a rare opportunity to be able to meet both characters this week only.

New characters will appear throughout the week at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Shame that I couldn’t come across Baloo and King Louie despite meeting the former at Epcot months ago, so I hope they can greet guests again like prior to 2018, alongside wishing I can see Rafiki and Timon return as I noticed that Animal Kingdom is lackluster in unique activities besides rides. I was let down that I didn’t know Baloo and King Louie were going to be the first to show up, and I was not able to see them yesterday due to a personal matter. While I got to see Terk and Jane, I still felt let down that I missed my chance.
