    Is there any particular character greeting location that showcases older or less popular characters such as Remy, Meeko, Mushu and/or Robin hood?

    Hi Robert, 

    That is such a great question! 

    While none of of the characters that you mentioned are currently available for regular Meet & Greet experiences, your very best opportunity to encounter a rare or older character would be a surprise character event known as a Characterpalooza, held at Disney's Hollywood Studios. In my lifetime of visiting Walt Disney World Resort, I have only stumbled upon such a fantastic treat one time, and it was marvelous! At these events, several characters, maybe 5-10, come seemingly out of nowhere to delight Guests for just a few minutes. Characters who are available for autographs are happy to sign, and all are happy to socialize for a moment and take photos. Crowds are kept low, and lines are stopped after only a few minutes, keeping these interactions short and personal. 

    There is a fantastic website with a section dedicated to providing the latest information on character experiences throughout Disney Parks. It is KennythePirate.com, and I reference it whenever my daughters have their hearts set on meeting a new Disney Pal that I haven't seen in a while. You might want to check that out for additional information about your favorite Disney Characters. 

    Also, on a few occasions, I have bumped into a rare character such as Captain Hook with very short or no line at the International Gateway in World Showcase. If you are making your way around World Showcase in Epcot, pass the France pavilion, cross over the bridge, and turn left towards the International Gateway. Just to the left of the path is a small character Meet & Greet area. Check there!

    I wish I could be more specific, Robert! I hope this helps.  Please come back and visit us with any additional questions!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
