American Adventure Character Spot Heats Up

After a couple months of hiatus, the American Adventure (Epcot), Millenium Village (Epcot), and Good Times Gathering Spot (Animal Kingdom) character meet and greet locations are heating up. It is rumored these areas are used for new cast members to hone their meet and greet skills. Whatever the reason is, I'm glad they have them. Earlier this year I had a rare opportunity to meet Launchpad McQuack at the Good Times Gathering Spot at Animal Kingdom. So far yesterday at the American Adventure I saw Goofy, Chip and Dale, Liverlips and Big Al, Pluto, and Mr. Penguin (see pics).
