Character meet and greets at Walt Disney World are not all created equal. Some are simply bare bones while others have highly themed environments (indoor and out). Some have interactive characters that can talk and chat with you about current events, such as the interactive talking Mickey Mouse that debuted at the Magic Kingdom in 2013. Some are much more quiet but expressive.

Two new character meet and greets have sprung up at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that fall somewhere in between. I say “in between” because while the characters are not interactive (my favorite type of meet & greet), they do have highly themed areas and are indoors gloriously air conditioned for the summer.
The first one is Olaf from FROZEN. This is located across from the Commissary restaurant in the building where the American Idol auditions were once held. Olaf is in his “In Summer” scene complete with sand and umbrella. It’s quite adorable as is he.
Next is “Red Carpet Dreams” where you can meet both Mickey and Minnie Mouse, although separately.
Minnie is decked out in Hollywood Glamour while her Beau is waiting for you, as Sorcerer Mickey (supposed to be a movie set perhaps?) in the next room.
As usual, meeting these characters is a great fun experience for young and old. I do hear we might be getting a Goofy interactive meet and greet at the Magic Kingdom sometime very soon. This, I can’t wait for.
