    Hi Krista. I see that you are the meeting characters specialist, so I am hoping you can help me. We are planning to use the EMH at Epcot in Dec. Will Mickey & friends be in the park during these hours, or can we only meet them during normal park hours?

    Hi, Colleen! I’m not so sure about being a “specialist!”  It has been a LONG time since my kids chose characters over roller coasters and other thrilling attractions, so that is what we are usually doing during our Extra Magic Hours.  I had to consult my fellow panelists and the touringplans website to find the answer to your question.  Evening Extra Magic Hours at Epcot DO feature extended time for the meet and greet opportunities at the Epcot Character Spot, a character greeting location in Innoventions West, near the passageway that leads to the Land Pavilion. Characters there typically include the Fab Five: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto.  This is the only character meet and greet available during either Morning or Evening Extra Magic Hours at ANY of the theme parks!  Thanks for your question.  I learned something new today.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
