I was recently presented with the opportunity to spend a week on board the Disney Fantasy as it traveled on it’s July 4th week Eastbound leg to Tortola, St. Thomas and Castaway Cay. Being the Character Locator that I am, I tried to meet as many characters, in as many costumes, as I possibly could during my trip. Here’s all the photos and details of the 25 different characters and 56 costumes. You’ll especially love the 4th of July, Pirate and Castaway Cay costumes: Continue reading Characters on board the Disney Fantasy

I arrived at the Magic Kingdom at about 8:30 a.m. ready to meet some characters that are difficult to find at Walt Disney World these days. For only one week (January 21-27) in Town Square at the Magic Kingdom they are offering “Long-lost Friends Week.” I had fully expected to see the exact characters that appeared but was surprised that Gideon wasn’t meeting with the Pinocchio gang. It’s funny to me that many guests have no idea where to line up for the quickest entry from the rope. I just waltzed right up to the rope while all the other people were forming a psuedo line behind the other section of rope.

|Many people have asked if I knew where all the Photopass locations are in Walt Disney World. I really don’t have that type of information memorized and usually don’t use Photopass very often because I go so frequently. I often ask the photographer to take our photo with our camera and only purchase a photo that is really great that I missed. After doing some digging around, I now have a pdf document that lists Photopass locations throughout Mickey World. With the advent of Photopass+ guests are desiring to get the most out of their privileges by taking as many photos as possible. Perhaps this file will assist you with your planning. I can’t certify that all locations are still active because this isn’t a recent file, but most probably are.Download the pdf file here: photopass tips|
