The Magic Kingdom is, hands down, the park with the most things to do in it. It is also the park with the most character meet and greets. So, it’s a great place to find some of your favorites.
But, remember that the character meet and greets here can sometimes have really long lines! So be prepared to jump in lines early! You can find the exact times of each meet and greet on any given day on the My Disney Experience app.

The Classic Characters
You can’t talk about how to find every character at Magic Kingdom without talking about the classic characters. I’m talking about Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto. These are the characters that most people think about when they think of the Magic Kingdom.
Of course, we have to start with the Big Cheese himself. You can find Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater, which is located on Main Street USA just inside the gates of the Magic Kingdom.
He is usually there most of the day.
Minnie Mouse meets with guests in Storybook Circus at Pete’s Silly Sideshow. She meets here most of the day, along with Daisy Duck. You can wait in one line and meet both Minnie and Daisy.
Minnie wears her circus costume, a Parisian poodle trainer, here.
At the Magic Kingdom, you can meet Donald Duck in Storybook Circus at Pete’s Silly Sideshow. He meets here throughout the day wearing his circus snake charmer costume. He meets here with Goofy.
Daisy, dressed as a gypsy fortune teller, meets at the Magic Kingdom in Storybook Circus in Pete’s Silly Sideshow. She meets here with Minnie Mouse. You can meet her most of the time throughout the day.
Goofy, dressed as a circus stuntman, can be found in Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus. You can wait in one line and meet him and Donald here. He is out most of the day.
Chip and Dale
You can also meet Chip and Dale in Storybook Circus outside near Pete’s Silly Sideshow. They are not always out however.
The next group of characters that typically come to mind when you think about meeting every character in Magic Kingdom is the princesses. These are some of the most sought after characters in all of Disney World.
If you have a Snow White fan in the family, you can meet her on the Town Square Theater porch at the front of the park near the entrance. She is close to where you will find Mickey Mouse. She is out most of the day.
Cinderella can be found most of the time in Fantasyland at Princess Fairytale Hall. She typically meets guests along with Elena of Avalor. You can wait in one line and meet both of them.
You can see Belle in the Magic Kingdom in Enchanted Tales with Belle. However, you will have to watch this interactive show in order to see her.
Those guests who are chosen to participate in the show get the chance to get their photo taken with her. However, if you are not chosen for the show, you will not get to meet her.
Tiana is available to meet guests during most of the day in Fantasyland in Princess Fairytale Hall. She meets with Rapunzel most of the time. So, this means that you can wait in one line and meet both of them.
Love Rapunzel? You can meet her in the Magic Kingdom at Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland. You can wait in one line and meet her and Tiana. They are out most of the day.
The next princess on this list of where to meet every character at Magic Kingdom is Ariel. You can meet her in mermaid form in her grotto near her ride, Under the Sea, Journey of the Little Mermaid, in Fantasyland. The entrance to the grotto is to the right of the entrance to the ride.
She is out most of the day.
Looking to meet Jasmine? You can find her in Adventureland, along with Aladdin, at the Agrabah Bazaar. This is located just across the way from the Magic Carpets of Aladdin.
Currently, you can see Merida in her new home in the the Magic Kingdom at the gazebo in Liberty Square behind Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe. She is out from 9 am until early afternoon most days.
Elena of Avalor
Elena of Avalor, star of the popular Disney Junior show, can be seen in Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland. She currently meets most of the day, along with Cinderella.
Other Characters Around the Magic Kingdom
Of course, the classic characters and princesses aren’t the only characters available for meet and greets. There are other characters out and about in the Magic Kingdom too.
You can meet Buzz Lightyear in Tomorrowland on the stage next to the exit of Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.
Stitch still makes distanced appearances in Tomorrowland on the Rocket Tower Plaza stage. Hopefully he will be able to meet with and hug guests again soon.
Captain Jack Sparrow
If you want to meet Captain Jack Sparrow, you can find him in Adventureland on the Adventureland Stage. This is near the entrance to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
You can find Peter Pan meeting guests in Fantasyland near his ride, Peter Pan’s Flight. He is usually there in the mornings and early afternoons.
The Evil Stepsisters (Anastasia and Drizella)
The evil stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizella, can be found near the castle walls of Cinderella Castle. They are out sporadically throughout the morning and early afternoon.
Lady Tremaine does not make an appearance all the time. When she does, you can find her near the walls of Cinderella Castle. Sometimes she is with her daughters, while other times she is by herself.
Tigger meets guests every day at the Thotful Spot next to the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride in Fantasyland. He usually can be found with Winnie the Pooh in this spot.
Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh meets with fans, along with Tigger, at the Thotful Spot next to his ride, the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, in Fantasyland. They are out most of the morning and early afternoon.
Aladdin meets with guests, sometimes with Jasmine and sometimes by himself, in Agrabah Bazaar in Adventureland. He is out a big portion of the day.

Alice typically meets guests in Fantasyland near the tea cups. She is not always out, but when she is, it is usually during the mornings and early afternoons.
Sometimes, the White Rabbit will appear with Alice near the tea cups. Sometimes, he will meet guests by himself just around the corner from Alice.
Your best bet on finding him is in the mornings.
The Fairy Godmother is not always out to meet in the Magic Kingdom. When she is, you will find her near the walls of Cinderella Castle.
Occasionally, she also makes an appearance during meals at Cinderella’s Royal Table.
Gaston meets with guests in Fantasyland near his tavern. He is out for a large part of the mornings and early afternoon.
Please note that he has not yet returned to the parks post-Covid. He should be returning soon, however.
Tinkerbell meets guests throughout the day at Town Square Theater on Main Street USA near the front of the park. She is in the same location as Mickey Mouse, but there is a separate line to meet her.
Starting in the Fall of 2023, Mirabel will begin meeting guests at Fairytale Garden in Fantasyland near Cinderella Castle. It is unknown at this point the exact start date of this meet and greet. She will be replacing Merida at this location.
The Country Bears
Unless you have been to Disney World before, you probably haven’t heard about the Country Bears. They are a group of singing bears that star in the Magic Kingdom show Country Bear Jamboree. When they are not performing, they are out for photos in Frontierland.
Characters at Magic Kingdom Character Meals
There are three character meals located in the Magic Kingdom. Below are the characters that you can meet while eating at one of these restaurants.
For a look at all the character meals throughout Disney World, see my character meals at a glance.
Cinderella’s Royal Table
Cinderella’s Royal Table is located in Cinderella Castle. This is one of the most popular character meals in all of Disney World.
During your meal here, you can meet some combination of Cinderella, Ariel (in her human form), Snow White, Aurora, Mulan, and Belle. The princesses that meet here vary. You never know which ones you will get to see.
Occasionally, the Fairy Godmother also meets guests here as well.
You will find Crystal Palace at the end of Main Street, USA, pretty close to Cinderella Castle. If you are walking from the entrance to the castle, it is on your left.
When you dine here, you can meet Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore. This is currently the only place in Disney World, outside of special holiday parties, where you can meet Piglet and Eeyore.
Be Our Guest
Be Our Guest, located in Fantasyland in the Beast’s Castle, is not your typical character meal. There are no characters that walk around from table to table here. But, after your meal, you can meet the Beast in his library.
There are a lot of chances to meet characters at the Magic Kingdom. This list will help you find every character at Magic Kingdom during your next trip to Disney World.
