Hello,

Great website and I was wondering if anyone has info on if there a different characters that come out for the summer months. We are going to Epcot and animal Kingdom at the end of june and should we be on the lookout for some characters that are normally not out. Thank you

Hiya! Welcome to the site

I havent heard anything yet; however, it is still a bit away so will try to let you know if we do hear something... since you are going at the end of June it is possible that they will be using the Good Times Gathering Spot in Camp Minnie Mickey with some extra characters since they normally make use of it during busy periods. Other than there another good place to keep an eye on is the International Gateway in World Showcase (the back entrance to the park between England and France) while there are a few spots that random characters can appear in Epcot... the International Gateway is the most frequently used throughout the year.

Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, rare character sightings at the International Gateway at Epcot are so random, since it appears to be the training ground for new character performers. Consequently, you never know if, when, or who may appear there. It appears thar it all depends on what has been going on with the cast hiring and training programs... Unofficial Disney Character Hunting Guide often has really nifty live facebook updates when characters appear there, but you really have to be at Epcot (or in Florida, for that matter), to take advantage of those character sightings.

Characters have 2 main schedules a year: Summer (May-Sept) and Winter (Oct-May). At this point in time, the only rumored changes are:

MK: Pinocchio out (he's already gone) & Merida in
DAK: Thumper/Miss Bunny out & Dug/Russell in (they've already started); Flik is also out, no known replacement.

DHS & Epcot have no rumored upcoming changes.

But really I want Flik to be back in DAK really badly. I'm expecting to meet him again when I go WDW in October and December this year. Not only do I want to see him in the Pixar Countdown to Fun Parade at DHS but to meet him again in DAK in a new greeting spot.shake head
