EPCOT “Furs” Plan

Updated 10/3/2013

The purpose of this plan is to meet all the “Fur” or stuffed type characters in Epcot in a single day.  It’s actually pretty easy to meet them all and doesn’t require too much planning beyond the Chip n Dale step.  The trick is to meet the entrance characters, Character Spot and Chip n Dale before others fill the lines.

EPCOT “Furs” Character Plan

  • Arrive at the entrance to Epcot by 8:15am and look for a turnstile with little or no line. The park advertises that it opens at 9:00 am, but it actually opens at 8:45 am. Make your way at opening to meet Pluto. There will be NO LINE. He will be located on the far right in a alcove before you turn the corner to Spaceship Earth.

  • Next we head straight for Mickey, Minnie & Goofy. “But don’t we need Soarin’ Fastpasses?” you ask. Well, trust me, they won’t be gone by the time you wait 3 minutes to see Mickey, Minnie and Goofy. The characters are located in the Character Spot. It is just past the Ice Cream shop on the right. Exact directions are located here.

  • Very few people know when and where Chip and Dale meet. As you pass through the Innoventions breezeway on the right hand side, headed toward Soarin’, you’ll find a little curved out area on your LEFT. Chip n Dale are usually prompt to arrive about 9:30am. I usually just drop into the area about 9:25 to be first in line, otherwise the line is typically about 15-20 minutes.

  • Duffy rarely has a long line, except during the busiest times at Epcot. To avoid any line at all, just show up at his location at 11:25am. To find his location head down the middle path from the Epcot Fountain toward World Showcase. When you reach the end of the path, turn left and Duffy’s gazebo is clearly identified on the left. He’s a hugger by the way!

  • Next we continue along the same direction toward the Mexico Pavilion, which is the first one to which you’ll arrive. Go just past the pavilion and you’ll see Mexican Donald on the LEFT. He rarely has a very long line, but by arriving early you’ll avoid any wait.

  • At your convenience, make your way to meet Tigger and Pooh.

  • Enjoy some time in Epcot! Tour the World Showcase, play the Agent P game, ride a few rides. We’ll wait until the late afternoon to meet Aladdin. The 4:35 meet would be perfect because you can follow it up with Tigger and Winnie the Pooh shortly after. Arrive about 4:20-4:25. Aladdin meets across from the Morocco pavilion next to the water. If your young pirate doesn’t wish to meet Jasmine, just inform the Cast Member.

  • Tigger and Pooh are located INSIDE the Toy Shoppe in the United Kingdom pavilion. Enter the streets of the UK and make your way toward the back. The Toy Shoppe is located on the RIGHT before you get to the back. Be sure to bounce with Tigger, he loves that.

If you desire, you may continue onward to Germany. I designed this plan to allow you time to enjoy the World Showcase at your pleasure before moving on to see Snow White. Arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the meet of your choice. Snow White is located on the right just past the Germany pavillion in an alcove with a wishing well.

Mulan will have two remaining meets. You may choose the one you desire, but arrive at least 10 minutes prior to her next meet time for the shortest wait. Mulan will be located just beside the Temple of Heaven under the awning. If you’re looking at the building it is to the left of the main entrance.
