A Williams Family Blog reader asked via Facebook about where to find and meet Doc McStuffins while at Walt Disney World. The reader knew that Doc McStuffins was on the “menu” so to speak for breakfast or lunch at Disney Junior Play ‘n Dine at the Hollywood and Vine Restaurant in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In fact, here’s what the Walt Disney World web-site tells about this experience:
A few of your Disney Junior favorites are coming to Hollywood & Vine—don’t miss this chance to eat, play and dance along with friends from Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Handy Manny during this fun and interactive dining experience.
But where else might this character be found?
In my response, I indicated that the Disney Junior characters can also be seen on a rotating basis in the Animation Courtyard between the Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Disney Jr. Live on Stage daily between 9:30 am and 4:40 pm. This character meet and greet typically features two or more characters. Information about this meet and greet would be found on the Park’s Times Guide.
While the boy considers himself beyond this stage, we did bump into Handy Manny and Jake from the Never Land Pirates just inside the Magic of Disney Animation building, which is where the characters from the courtyard go to meet guests during inclement weather.
If you are at Walt Disney World and there is a character you would like to meet, be sure to check at Guest Services at the entrance to each park and inquire about character meeting locations and times. Also know that those times and locations can change based on weather and character availability.
On one of our trips the only Disney Princess we had yet to meet was Snow White and we knew she would be in the Germany Pavilion just prior to our dinner at the Biergarten—click here to read more. When we arrived, we were greeted, instead, by a Cast Member telling us that Snow White was tending to a sick Dwarf. While we were disappointed, we were grateful for the information from the Cast Member so that we did not wait around wondering. We never did see Snow White that trip; it was another reason for another trip!
