So You Want to Meet Chip and Dale
EPCOT Character Spot, just to the right of the Fountain of Nations. Sometimes Chip and Dale can be found there, along with many other Disney characters. The photos above and below were taken at the EPCOT Character Spot. Note: I understand that sometimes Chip and Dale can be found just outside the EPCOT Character Spot. As you exit, turn left and then look to your left. We have seen them there, but just haven't stopped for a photo or autograph.
"Character Explosion." When exiting from The Magic of Disney Animation attraction, guests enter a large room with animation stations, etc. On non-Fantasmic! nights, this area is bursting with characters with new ones showing up every 20-25 minutes or so. This character explosion lasts for about two hours!
Rafiki's Planet Watch. Where have you seen Chip and Dale at Animal Kingdom?
Mickey's Backyard BBQ. Chip and Dale were ready to help cook dinner. There's also a nightly campfire hosted by Chip and Dale at Fort Wilderness.
As far as dining with the chipmunks, only the Garden Grill at EPCOT offers that opportunity. The Garden Grill is open for dinner dining only. Chip and Dale used to be a part of the character meal at the Liberty Tree Inn at the Magic Kingdom, but alas, there is no longer a character meal at that location.
Some Disney guests have a difficult time distinguishing between the two. Here's an easy way to tell them apart. Chip has a dark, almost black, nose. . . like a chocolate CHIP! Get it?
