    Are there any character greetings outside of the parks and character dining experiences?

    Hi, Matthew! I'm sorry to say that the Walt Disney World Resort character meals are usually the only character meet and greets outside the four theme parks.  While there might be an occasional special event at Downtown Disney or ESPN Wide World of Sports where characters are available, they are the exception and not the rule. Walt Disney World has done an incredible job of making the characters more available than they were even a decade ago, with character meet and greet opportunities at an all-time high.  However, those experiences remain almost exclusively inside the theme parks and character dining.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
