Character Palooza 2016 Schedule

Updates on Anna and Elsa, what’s going on with Tink and Friends and Character Palooza

What’s Anna and Elsa’s schedule?

As of today, February 23, Anna and Elsa move back to another 9:00 am start time.  It’s been rather confusing with them switching the schedule back and forth each week, but they are supposed to continue with the 9:00 am opening for the foreseeable future and hope to expand from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm soon.  I recommend arriving at Epcot one hour before park opening and making a run to their location.  Get a Fastpass+ for either Test Track or Soarin’ and riding the other late at night.  If you are willing to split your party, you could FP+ Soarin and do Test Track as Single Rider.

Character Palooza at Hollywood Studios on Streets of America January 26, 2014

Character Palooza can be like shooting at a moving target at times.  Cast Members are instructed to act as if it doesn’t occur until they characters actually appear and the schedules aren’t published publicly except on my site and others who borrow it.  I’m able to get basic schedules from an uncredited friend because the friend wants guests to be able to access these characters.  Sometimes the schedules that I’m provided can be adjusted slightly based on conditions and desires of the Character Palooza team.  I try my best to keep the schedules updated, but recommendation is to arrive a little before the times I list and wait around.  Characters will NOT appear during inclement weather.

Here’s a link to the Character Palooza schedule and location information.

Here’s who we visited yesterday:  Belle, Mulan, Snow White & Snow Queen Grimhilde, Green Army Men, Penguin, Mary Poppins, Stitch, Genie, Chip n Dale.   Belle didn’t return for the second set and the third set was cancelled after only a minute or two on stage due to rain in the area.

The highlight of recent Character Palooza meets has been seeing Snow White and the Evil Queen Grimhilde in the same meet and greet!

Belle didn’t offer a set meet. She took the hand of this little girl and walked around with her introducing her to the various characters with no waiting in lines. Way to go Belle!
