This is where to Take Pictures of Winnie the Pooh at Disney
I lived in Cambridge for nearly 2 years. And one of the most lovable facts in the history of the city was that AA Milne penned The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh right there. Heartwarming for a Disney fanatic who just loves the adaptation and watches the blustery day on loop, I was just stoked at knowing I had seen the original manuscript and walked in the footsteps of such an inspirational author. So of course when at Disney, I had to meet the adorable characters of the story and assist other Disney lovers on where to find their favourites hailing from 100 Acre Woods.
Winnie the Pooh
This adorable bear is quite prevalent in all the parks! At Walt Disney World Florida, you can always find him at the Many adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride, just beside the line, and should you wish to enjoy a character dining experience, you can find him at the Crystal Palace.
If you are travelling to Disneyland California you can find Pooh at Critter country regularly. In Tokyo Disney he can be found always at the entrance to the World Bazaar and just like Orlando, can be found at the Crystal Palace breakfast.
If you are travelling to Disneyland Paris you can find Pooh at Casey Corner and Main Street outside the Plaza Inn.
Pooh is very busy and can also be found regularly in Shanghai and Hong Kong in Fantasyland and the Fantasy Gardens respectively. Double check with the crew on your Disney Cruise Line as he has made appearances to meet passengers.
I love him. He is the cutest little guy and his adorable personality makes most of his fans want to meet him! The good news about that is Piglet is a frequent character from 100 Acre Woods to do meet and greets.
You are nearly guaranteed to meeting Piglet in Disney World Florida and Disneyland California at character dining at the Crystal Palace. These are the only places to find him at these parks.
Piglet has been sighted at Tokyo Disney at the Crystal Palace breakfast, and has become quite elusive in Disneyland Paris. He hasn’t been seen in Hong Kong, Shanghai, or the Cruise Lines.
The lovable sad donkey does make meet and greets with his fans. You can find him with his 100 Acre friends at the Orlando and Tokyo Disney Crystal Palace character dining.
In California he is frequently found in Critter Country near the Winnie the Pooh ride and in Disneyland Paris he has been sighted near the It’s a Small World ride. Sadly if you are travelling through Hong Kong or Shanghai Disney, you won’t see him as he doesn’t do appearances there at this time.
The favourite bouncy tiger is a busy traveller and does meet and greets in Orlando and Tokyo Disney at the Crystal Palace character dining. When travelling through Disneyland Paris he makes random appearances throughout the park. In California he is seen now and then near the Winnie the Pooh ride. But sadly he has yet to get to Hong Kong or Shanghai to greet those fans.
Rabbit has been seen elusively over Easter celebrations. the Disney rabbits make their rare appearances during this spring celebration.
Other than this, your best bet to meet Rabbit is in Disneyland Paris near the Winnie the Pooh ride, or in Fantasyland California near Critter Country.
Kanga & Roo
The resident kangaroo family of 100 Acre Wood sadly do not meet their public. It doesn’t look like they will be meeting their fans any time soon.
This guy who loves his silly old bear sadly cannot be met and only shows up now and then in parades and ice shows.
The only time Gopher was ever seen was in the Winnie the Pooh show that ran in both Orlando and California. Since that production is shelved at the moment, he does not make public appearances anymore. He is such an adorable character that many fans love, so hopefully he will come back soon.
So there you have your essential guide to getting the perfect picture with Winnie the Pooh and your favourite characters from 100 Acre Woods. There are several who do meet guests so there is a lot of opportunity. I highly recommend a meal at the Crystal Palace! Review coming soon!
