Guide to Character Meet and Greets at Disney’s Hollywood Studios


Do you have a favorite park at the Walt Disney World Resort? My favorite park is Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but the reason why may surprise you. Why is Disney’s Hollywood Studios my favorite park? Drumroll, please… Disney’s Hollywood Studios is my favorite park because of the character meet and greet offerings. If you want to take pictures with the characters at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, read on for a guide to each character meet and greet location.

Meet Chewbacca at the Star Wars Launch Bay

My favorite character from the classic Star Wars movies is Han Solo. His trusty companion, Chewbacca, can not wait to meet you and your family. He will welcome you with big, open arms. If you have little ones who love Chewy, grab a photo with him at the Star Wars Launch Bay on your next visit.

Head to Launch Bay to meet Chewbacca!

Meet Woody and Friends In Toy Story Land

Do you love Toy Story? If so, be sure to snap a picture with some of the characters while you are enjoying Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You can find often find Woody, Jessie, Buzz Lightyear, or Bo Peep in front of the Toy Story Midway Mania building. Give them some big hugs for me!

Meet Sulley

I do not know about you, but Monsters Inc is one of my all time favorite movies. I never pass up a chance to meet Sully. If you love  Sully as much as I do, snap a picture with him in the The Pixar Plaza. You can typically find them there between 10:30am and 6:00pm. Make sure to have Sully give you his autograph. He has the cutest signature!

Meet Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Disney Junior Characters

Mickey and Minnie Mouse can be found in Hollywood and Vine. Hollywood and Vine is an all-you-can-eat buffet-style meal open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Mickey and friends will be there for dinner, and Disney Junior stars will be there for breakfast. I encourage you to grab a reservation at this retro-themed diner. Your kids will love it!

If you want hugs from Mickey’s pal Pluto, be sure to go on over to the Animation Courtyard. Pluto would love to give you and your family a giant hug. Be sure to bring your autograph book when you see him because he has a cute signature, too.

Other Characters

You might see the Stormtroopers, Rey, and R2-D2 roaming around Galaxy’s Edge. You will likely find the troopers around the Star Wars Launch Bay area.
