Disney has so many wonderful films that capture our hearts. After the successful release of Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and the Lion King, Disney released 3 more heartwarming works of art that audiences loved – Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Hercules. Here is our guide to finding the characters from these three films at the various Disney Parks around the world.

Pocahontas

Pocahontas is an extraordinary historical figure. One that many historians seek information and facts to fulfill the fascination. I must admit, when Disney announced they were creating a movie around her life, I was so excited and could not wait to see it.

Pocahontas- herself

The wonderful free spirited Pocahontas can be found frequently at the Animal Kingdom in Disney World Florida. If you head to Discovery Island, you have a great chance of meeting her. She has also made frequent appearances at Tokyo Disney. Other than this, your chances of meeting her are slim as she does not currently appear in Disneyland Paris, California, Hong Kong, Shanghai, or the Cruises.

John Smith

Sadly, John Smith has remained in England and does not make it to any of the Disney Parks. On very rare occasions, he has been seen at characterpalooza just outside Fantasmic in Hollywood Studios, but this was very random. I know, I was disappointed as well.

Meeko

The adorable and mischievous raccoon sidekick of Pocahontas can be found on the odd occasion in Animal Kingdom with Pocahontas and at Tokyo Disney in Critter Country. His cameos are becoming less and less frequent, so if you do see him, jump at the opportunity to get a photo and autograph.

Governor Ratcliffe

This evil character and foe of Pocahontas and John Smith makes appearances now and then in the Villains Parade at Halloween in the Not So Scary Halloween Party. You can also find him now and then in Animal Kingdom at Disney World Florida and in Disneyland Paris. At the moment he does not appear in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, or the Cruises.

Hunchback of Notre Dame

This enchanting tale of Quasimodo in Paris came to life thanks to Disney’s incredible animators. I truly enjoyed this film and felt it had such gorgeous music and drawn animation. The characters from the film have become more obscure, but here is the lowdown on meeting them in the parks.

Quasimodo

The hero of the movie comes out in extremely rare occasions for the most part in Disneyland Paris. Other than that he does not do public appearances at this time. It doesn’t look like this will change anytime soon with the popularity of the princesses.

Esmerelda

The heroine of this delightful film can be found quite often in Tokyo Disney and once in awhile in Disneyland Paris. At this time she doesn’t make appearances in the US parks, Hong Kong, Shanghai, or the Cruises.

Frollo

For now this evil characters only comes out at Halloween in Tokyo Disney. He used to be part of the parades in the USA parks over the Halloween season, but these days are long gone now with the popularity of so many other characters.

Clopin

The only place you can find him is in Disneyland Paris. He does not appear in any other park or on the cruises.

Phoebus

Sadly, Phoebus does not appear in any parks and have not done appearances or been a part of dance and parade sequences in quite some time.

Hercules

Another film that didn’t get the praise it deserves, this wonderful tale of the Greek Gods truly is a wonderful adaptation with some great music sung by the famous Michael Bolton.

Hercules- himself

The hero himself does not make many appearances anymore sadly. He can be found in Disney on Ice productions and in the odd parade, but he doesn’t do autographs or photos at this time.

Megara

Sadly, Meg doesn’t do regular meet and greets; however, if you go on the right day, you just may see her in the World Showcase at EPCOT. If you do see her, make sure you do grab a photo and autograph as her appearance is extremely rare.

Hades

The villain of this film sadly no longer does meet and greets. He has been seen in the villain parades around Halloween, but other than that, he is very obscure.

Pain

Pain can be met nowadays randomly in Disneyland Paris. He has not been seen too much lately, but if you wanted to meet him, this park is your only real chance. He doesn’t appear in the US parks or those in Asia.

Panic

Panic has not been seen for years. Unfortunately, he has not made appearances for a long time. He has appeared in very special events, but those were some time ago.

Philoctetes

You can still find Philoctetes now and then as part of the Halloween Soiree in Disneyland Paris, but this is very rare and not guaranteed for future events.
