Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Happy 2013 to you all! Two quick questions: Someone told me of a building in HS where you can meet 8-10 characters at one time -any idea where exactly this is? Has anyone viewed WISHES from Fantasyland - behind the castle instead of the front? THANKS!

- Hi Jackie,
The closest thing to what you're describing is the Magic of Disney Animation Pavilion at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This area typically hosts characters from two or three Disney films. Notably, this is where you can often find the characters from whatever animated film is Disney's most recent. For example, currently there are Wreck It Ralph characters there. Additionally, one or two other sets of characters are usually there. I've often seen several characters from the Incredibles posing together. The Magic of Disney Animation pavilion is located past the Disney Junior show area.
If you watch Wishes from behind the castle, you can still see the actual fireworks in the sky. However, you will be missing all the fun stuff that happens in front of the building. There are images projected onto the building, which you won't be able to see. You'll also miss the flight of Tinkerbell at the start of the show. I'd say that you'd get about 75% of the full Wishes experience if you watch it from behind the castle.
Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
