    My children love the dalmations is there anywhere in WDW to meet them?

    Unfortunately there is no opportunity to meet the Dalmatians at Walt Disney World. However, I do have some ideas that might help:

    1. They could meet Cruella. Cruella is often greets guests in the parks. To find out exactly where she will be, you should stop by the Guest Relations office at one of the theme parks and ask them to call the "character hotline" for you. They will be able to tell you where and when Cruella, or any character, is appearing during the time of your visit. Cruella is, well, a bit DeVilish, but usually in a funny or campy way that is not threatening to children.

    2. They could see giant Dalmatians. There is an entire area of the All Star Movies resort that's called the 101 Dalmatians section. Anyone is welcome to visit. There are GIANT (three stories tall) statues of Pongo and Perdy. You could get to this resort by taking the All Star bus from any of the theme parks.

    3. They could have a photo taken with Dalmatians. Well, not real ones, but animated cutouts. If you go into Exposition Hall, on the right just as you enter the Magic Kingdom, and go past the photo sales areas, you will see a cute little theater playing clips from old Disney cartoons. In this area, there are sturdy life-sized 2D models of scenes from several movies. One of them is from 101 Dalmatians. Your kids could stand in the scene and, if you took his photo, it would look like he was in the film. (Be aware this area may be undergoing changes due to the Magic Kingdom expansion.)

    4. You could buy them Dalmatians. Often, there are plush Dalmatian toys for sale in the WDW shops. The largest stores are the World of Disney Store in Downtown Disney, Mouse Gear in Epcot, and the Emporium in the Magic Kingdom. These are the most likely spots (pun intended) for you to find them a furry friend.

    Hope you have a great time on your trip!
