I have noticed that the last few times I had friends visit Disney World they did not take any time to meet the characters. Their children wanted to, but there were so many other things to see and do that it wasn’t worth the time it takes to wait in line to meet them.
Animal Kingdom – The Best Place at Disney World to meet Characters
We learned after many visits that the Animal Kingdom is the best place to meet the characters. The lines are always shorter than the other parks. We got to see Eeyore, Tiger and Pooh every single time we went to the Animal Kingdom, because there was literally never a line.
Where to Meet Pooh, Tiger, and Eeyore
You can find them quickly after getting into the Animal Kingdom. Once you are inside the Animal Kingdom head towards Dinoland. Right before you cross a bridge into Dinoland turn right, you will see to the right a path. You follow it down towards the river and there will be Pooh, Eeyore, and Tiger. There is usually a staff member stationed next to the tiny marker.
If you want a more intimate meet and greet with Pooh, Tiger and Eeyore consider having lunch with them at Crystals in the Magic Kingdom. My sister did this with my niece and she loved it!
Where to meet other Disney Characters at the Animal Kingdom
I have noticed that sometimes you can meet these characters, but not always. Check the daily schedule when you arrive to see who is doing meet and greets the day you are there.
Baloo and King Louie from the Jungle Book can be found near Tamu Tamu Refreshments. I have only seen them here once.
Lilo and Stitch can be found across from Pizzafari. (I have also seen Stitch at the entrance of Typhoon Lagoon.

I use Skyscanner to find flights. I use it so much, I wrote an entire guide to finding cheap flights with Skyscanner! My second favorite site to find flights is Momondo, another great site for finding cheap flights.
