    We have a favorite caricaturist in Downtown Disney (Harvey). How can we determine if he still works there and what his schedule/location may be? Past caricatures of kids are treasures; now bringing grandson for first time May3 to start new generation. Thnx

    Hi there Tom,

    I can totally relate to this...We have a favorite Disney Artist (Jason Z.) who does the Disney Animation art and also the beautiful watches.  We first met him and loved his humor and how personal he was with all of the guests.  I ordered a watch for my daughter with her favorite "Tinkerbell" and although all of the Artists do an amazing job.....Jason put a little extra "MAGIC" into the watch for her.  All in all we have made the best friend ever and I could not imagine having anyone else create our animated Disney memories for us! (Thank you Jason!!!!).

    So, now that we have bonded with some same tastes/feelings let me tell you that on our trips, we would normally just show up at the shop in Disney's Hollywood Studios and see if he happens to be there and if not, we ask a cast member when Jason would likely be back and they are kind enough to give us a schedule of his hours and days.  This is possible for us as this is a fixed location for him (as long as we have known him anyway's).  I suggest you try this method or you may call Guest Services at: (407) WDW-MAGIC (939-6244) and see if they can help you out.  I am not sure if they are allowed to give out this information about their cast members or not, but I would imagine that there are many guests who "bond" with certain cast members and wish to look them up on a returning trip, especially to carry on the tradition of the same caricaturist for the whole family.  I wish you luck in your venture and hope that you find your Harvey, like we always are lucky to find our Jason!!!!!!

    Have a magical day!
