California Adventure--Character Interactions


Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was the one character the husband was determined to meet.
For us, meeting and greeting Disney characters is a part of the fun of visiting theme parks and our Summer 2015 Disneyland vacation was no different.  Click here to read more about the characters we met at Disneyland.

Here are the characters we met at Disney's California Adventure:
 Cars Land offered up three characters for us to greet--Lightning McQueen, Mater, and Red.  What a treat!


 In Hollywood Land, we exchanged family stories with The Incredibles and Frozone.  They have a new movie coming out!
 Olaf was also greeting guests in Hollywood Land, near Mike & Sulley to The Rescue.  We had read that this was a Fastpass only meet and greet, but no Fastpasses were offered or required.
 We found Oswald right in front of the gate.  The husband was thrilled as this was the one character he definitely wanted to meet.
 The Mouse himself was on Buena Vista Street.
 Donald Duck has his own gazebo just across the bridge into Paradise Pier.
 Dug was in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. . . a part of Grizzly Peak.
 Stitch was one of the characters in the Disney Visa Card rotation.  I'll write more about this perk in another post.
 Mike was in the Monsters University portion of Hollywood Land, just across from the entrance to Aladdin.  The boy got him to dance with him--what fun!
 The one and only Fastpass required meet and greet in the park--Anna and Elsa.  The Fastpasses have a 20 minute return window and you can have a Fastpass for the meet and greet even if you have other Fastpasses.  Animation Academy is the home for these ladies.
 Pluto was near Soarin' in Grizzly Peak.
 The only time guests can see Russell is after his ceremony in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.  Check the Times Guide for show times.
 Woody and Buzz meet guests just past Toy Story Midway Mania in Paradise Pier.




 We bumped into some "friends" on Buena Vista Street.  We got a ticket for being "nice"!
 Flik was in a bug's life land.  It was great to see him again.

As you can see, it took us a few days to round up all of these characters, but we did knock out several on one day!
