I saw a thread for DLP, but not for WDW.

I ran into Mr. Penguin at the Magic Kingdom last month. He was in one of the grassy areas on Main Street and he had pretty much no queue. I don't think a lot of people recognized him! I think he might've been training. I know he's been known to make random appearances in the Magic Kingdom, but I was surprised to see that he still did.

In more recent news, I met Max Goof at Hollywood Studios today. I forget the exact area I was at when I met him, but I think it was somewhere in the vicinity of Echo Lake. I told the character attendant I was surprised to see him since he's such a rare character, and she said he's been making more appearances lately. I'm not sure if it's because of Halloween season or if they're just putting out more characters since it's been so busy lately, but keep an eye out for him!

You know, I thought we had a thread for this, but it's probably gotten lost to the echelon of time, lol.

The character line-up for the Palooza is fairly random. I think the times and locations have now been made more random too.

Unfortunately people were getting the information about the sets too readily and freely, and so Disney have changed how they handle the pop-up characters a lot. It is now much harder to know when and where they will show up. Even if you some how have the times beforehand they can often be changed last minute.

I was just at WDW this weekend and was scanning the park for Character Palooza. Where did it take place that weekend?
Also Max has been making appearances at Studios for about a year now. He comes out in the afternoons in the area in front of the animation courtyard and the Great Movie Ride. I think you can find his schedule on the Disney Parks app.

Max is not a regular at all. We finally saw him yesterday after coming every weekend for 10 months. He had been ultra rare this year and his costume is falling apart. Shoes were splitting and he had tiny holes in his pants. I don't think there's enough demand for him and with the costume in disrepair, he may not be around much longer. See him while you can. He is the one my daughter always wanted to meet, she was elated and hugged him for a solid 2 minutes.

I saw Naveen today! I know he used to appear with Tiana often when TPATF first came out, but I've heard he doesn't appear as often nowadays. I was surprised to see him at the Harbour House today.

And wow, @rodnyhansel, that's awesome! I'd love to catch a palooza sometime soon to catch some rare characters. I'll need to prioritize that next time I go to DHS.

Naveen appears with Tiana behind Christmas shop at MK daily after 5pm. I personally have not seen a palooza since February. They have been bringing out more uncommon characters, that used to frequent paloozas, in place of common street characters like the chipmunks. However, I have not seen a palooza (more than 2 uncommons) in a long time.

Yeah!! Its cool!! But be careful! They might bring many easy to see characters such as Tiana, Aladdin, Pocahontas, and other daily characters!

Would like to get Mushu and, maybe, Dopey alone since if you see Dopey at MK you need to take a pic with him and Snow White together.

Unless I'm mistaken, nowadays if you get Dopey, you have to get the other 6 Dwarfs.

Dopey appears sometimes with Snow White at MK by the entrance. Not always thought.

I met Brer Fox today! I caught what I believe to have been a character palooza in Animation Courtyard around 4:30. Stitch, Pocahontas, Chip, and Dale were also there.

No other rare ones today, just Brer Fox. I walked around the park three times today because I just had a really strong feeling that I would run into either Brer Fox or Pinocchio today. I was surprised to see them all in Animation Courtyard because I haven't heard of them congregating there before. I guess people are right about Disney mixing up the locations now. I went over by Tower of Terror later on in the night because I've heard that's a popular spot for them to be, but I didn't see any activity.

Thumper and Miss Bunny were at the entrance to Animal Kingdom today! They were there around five as I was exiting the park. It definitely made my day.

That's really neat. Was there a big line? Was it the start of the set or was it ending?
