Are you excited to meet some of your favorite Disney characters during your next trip to “The Most Magical Place on Earth”? Thankfully meeting characters has largely returned to normal since changes were made during the pandemic, and Guests visiting Walt Disney World today can meet many of the most popular characters in the theme parks and at select dining experiences.

While some characters are always spotted around Disney Parks, others are considered “rare” and can often only be seen at special events like after-hours parties or runDisney races. Characters can even become rare if they were once featured regularly in the Parks, but have disappeared over time.

Earlier this week, several lesser-seen characters were spotted at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, including Edna, Frozone, and Mr. and Mrs. Incredible from The Incredibles (2004) and Max dressed up as Powerline from A Goofy Movie (1995).

While The Incredibles characters used to be a regular staple at Hollywood Studios (there is even an entire area of the Park loosely themed to the film near one entrance to Toy Story Land, Max as Powerline has typically only been seen in occasional distanced sightings or special events like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Since these characters had been seen at Hollywood Studios, we along with many other Disney Park fans wondered if their sightings would be a regular occurrence or if this was just some surprise extra magic.

We are excited to share that Attractions Magazine was able to confirm that these characters are set to stay in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, so you may be able to see them for yourself during your next trip!

According to Attractions, Powerline Max is greeting Guests on Grand Avenue near the entrance to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (nearby Goofy will continue to greet Guests in his vacation outfit in this new, less-distanced location than where he was previously seen.) Frozone, Edna, and Mr. and Mrs. Incredible are greeting Guests in various locations around Echo Lake.
