    Hi, i'm going to wdw in 2 weeks, and my little one would like to Meet and greets Pinocchio. Do you know if he is still around or appears only during the parade? Thanks

    Hello Kim,

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  I'm not going to tell a lie, but unfortunately Pinocchio is one of those characters that does not conduct regular meet and greets.  The only opportunity where you "may" get to see Geppetto's son is during Character Palooza which is held at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the main entrance before you reach the security tents.  It's a surprise event and is not listed in any of the times guides.  Several guests have asked the Moms Panel about this event and you may find additional information here.  Pinocchio and Geppetto may make an appearance in the parades at the Magic Kingdom, but the schedule is always subject to change.  

    If your little one would like to experience something related to Pinocchio, you can always catch a quick service meal at Pinocchio Village Haus at the Magic Kingdom.  The restaurant is decorated with murals of Pinocchio and his friends including beloved lyrics from the movie's soundtrack.  

    Don't forget to wish upon a star and always let your conscience be your guide.  Have a magical vacation!

    Leanne T.
