How and when can you find rare characters in Disney parks?

We all love meeting our characters favorites. If you had the chance to meet Cinderella or Peter Pan, why not?

All parks in Disney offer guests the opportunity to discover and greet many characters or see them at shows and fashion shows.

There is usually a fixed list of characters that you meet in everyday life, but every now and then there will be a rare sighting of characters. A character that doesn't make appearances very often in the Disney parks.

See one of these characters Disney rares is so much fun!

First of all, we'll talk about where to find the princes of Disney.

Sure Cinderella always talks about Prince Charming, and Aurora always dreams about Prince Phillip, but where can you actually meet princes on your trip?

Well, some princes have a definite location, but other than that, they don't meet often.

At Walt Disney World, you can find the Prince Charming (Cinderella) every night at the 1900 Park Fare restaurant (inside the Grand Floridian)

Meeting him would still be considered rare because you have to have a reservation at the restaurant.
That goes for Prince Eric and Flynn Ryder at Trattoria Al Forno, which is in Disney's Boardwalk.

But are there any other times you can meet these princes? Yes!

Sometimes during the year they meet inside the parks, but never in a constant way.

During some events with special tickets, such as the Mickey Merry Christmas, these princes often meet with their princesses.

Most princes also join their princesses on Valentine's Day and some holidays as well.

If you're lucky, you might find Prince Charming with Cinderella at his Royal Table at Christmas.

When it comes to meeting Disney princes, it's even rarer.
Princes are really only seen at special events or on holidays like Valentine's Day.

Fortunately, Flynn Ryder meets every day in Disneyland. And if that doesn't satisfy your need, head to Disney California Adventure and experience the Captain America.

Others  rare characters are Disney villains.

At Walt Disney World, these characters they are usually only found at difficult ticket events such as the Halloween Party or what used to be known as the Villain Club.

Nowadays, villains can sometimes be found in the passing areas of the Epcot during the late summer, before the Halloween season.

But most villains can only be found at Halloween parties.

Sometimes they don't even meet at these parties and only show up at shows – it just depends on when you go and what's on offer that night.

Villains at the party include (but is subject to change) Maleficent, Cruella DeVil, The Evil Queen, Gaston, Lady Tremaine, Anastasia and Drizella, Dr. Facilier, Jafar, Hades, The Queen of Hearts and Captain Hook.

The only villains that meet daily outside the Halloween party are Gaston, Lady Tremaine, and Cinderella's evil sisters. Occasionally, you can find the Evil Queen meeting in the Hollywood Studios before the Fantasmic.

At Disneyland, villains are a bit more frequent.

The Characters The Evil Queen and Gaston roam Fantasyland daily.

The Doctor. Facilier is often found in New Orleans Square, and sometimes Jafar can be found hanging out near Aladdin.

Cruella DeVil is usually in the Town Square, and Captain Hook is always running after Peter Pan.

The villains that are rarest in the Disneyland it's Lady Tremaine and her sisters. They are normally only seen in parades around Halloween and Christmas.
