We LOVE Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. We love the Headless Horseman, the lights and projections on Main Street, and the Boo To You Parade. We love dressing up in costumes, and watching Hallowishes fireworks. There’s really nothing about it that we don’t like. But what we REALLY love is having the chance to see unusual characters that you don’t often get the chance to see – especially dressed up in their Halloween costumes. The unfortunate truth of a Halloween Party however, is that there is only a limited amount of time, and you won’t be able to meet (or even catch a glimpse of), all the characters that are out on any given Halloween Party, if you want to experience all the party has to offer. Today, we’re talking about the BEST Halloween character interactions, so that you don’t waste your time where you shouldn’t.
1. Winnie The Pooh and Friends
This is by far our FAVORITE Halloween meet and greet. You can see Winnie The Pooh and his friends together at several places, BUT GUYS – THEY’RE ALL DRESSED IN HALLOWEEN COSTUMES. This is a ridiculously cute photo-op (Tigger, in a Pirate Costume?! Come on!), and one that you should take advantage of. The line gets REALLY long too, so we recommend getting in line for it second, after either The Seven Drawfs or Jack and Sally.
2. The Seven Dwarfs
To the best of our knowledge, the only place you can meet all Seven Dwarfs together, is either at a Halloween Party, or a Christmas Party. It’s an incredible popular character op (as it should be, because Drawfs > Snow White), and you will need to choose between meeting the Drawfs and meeting Jack and Sally. We always chose the Drawfs, but that’s just a personal preference.
3. Jack and Sally
We’re adding Jack and Sally to the list, not because we particularly enjoy them, but because we know we would be excommunicated from the Disney community if we left them off the list. We aren’t Nightmare Before Christmas fans (in fact, our only experience with Jack and Sally is from a Blink 182 song), but this photo-op is one of the most popular in the parks. If you wanna do it, get there BEFORE the party starts. 4. The Tweedles/Queen of Hearts
This meet and greet usually takes place in front of the Mad Tea Party Ride, and has a lot of great character interactions with it. The line doesn’t get as long as fast as the top three, so you can chose one of the other’s, and still manage this one.
5. Lots-o The Bear
Lots-o makes the list because he’s just so darn adorable (as much as an off-the-rocker-psycho-bear can be). He’s one of our favorites, because we don’t see him roaming the parks very often, and we love obscure meet and greets.
These are our votes for the best character interactions come Halloween time. There are plenty of characters that you can chose to stand in line for (and we HATE standing in line), but we think these meet and greets give you the most out of your wait time.
