It’s the spookiest time of year at Walt Disney World, which means pumpkins, Halloween parties, spooky snacks, and the perfect time of year to find the best Disney Villains Character Visits. Lucky for you, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite Disney Villain meet-and-greet opportunities at Walt Disney World!
Meet Gaston in Fantasyland
Not only is the Disney villain’s Character Visit for Gaston free and usually doesn’t have too long of a line, but meeting this villain is sure to have you leaving laughing. In Beauty and Beast, Gaston’s ego is bigger than his biceps, and you can expect the same when meeting him in person. Find him in Fantasyland near Gaston’s Tavern and see the My Disney Experience app for specific times.
Meet Lady Tremaine at 1900 Park Fare
1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian is one of our favorite character meals and Lady Tremaine is one of the reasons for that! Witty, sarcastic and always looking for a way to criticize Cinderella, Lady Tremaine is sure to add a bit of humor to your meal. You can’t meet Lady Tremaine in any other Disney Villains Meet and Greet, so take advantage of it while you can.
Meet the Evil Queen at Storybook Dining
We recently got to experience Storybook Dining at Wilderness Lodge. This was a reservation we’ve been trying to get for a while and are happy to report, it was definitely worth the wait. Guests dining here will have the opportunity to meet the Evil Queen herself during their meal and get their photo with Photopass.
Meet Lotso at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Lotso is one of those rare characters that hardly ever comes out to play at Walt Disney World, but at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party there are lots of opportunities to meet such characters. One of the special Disney villain’s Character Visits, Lotso can be found at the Halloween Party throughout the night, and even better, he smells like strawberries! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is a great place to meet a lot of rare villains, so be sure to check the map to see what opportunities you’ll have!
Meet Jack Skellington and Sally at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
One of the most popular Disney Character Visits, Jack and Sally only show up at Mickey’s Halloween Party, and has a line formed as soon as the party starts! A super fun photo shoot with these two characters can be had, but we highly recommend waiting until later in the evening. That is if you don’t want to race to the line as soon as the line location is shared. If this meet and greet is on your list, have a plan. It’s a popular one!
Meet Darth Vader in Star Wars Launch Bay
It’s no secret that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge recently opened up in Hollywood Studios. And while you won’t find traditional meet and greet opportunities inside Galaxy’s Edge, you can still experience the power of the force inside the Launch Bay; which we love for days when it’s hot or rainy. If you’re ready to face the Dark Side, Darth Vader is ready to recruit you.
