World Book Day is a popular day for the team at Ocean Florida. There are so many inspiring books that each and every one of us loved as a child, which sparked our imagination and a love of reading. We especially enjoy seeing children dressed as their favourite characters, from animals to mythical creatures.
Luckily, mimicking your heroes is an everyday occurrence when you’re a regular at some of Orlando’s
theme parks. We know a few fans who love the dressing up box and we’ve found some of their most cute photos. Plus, you can even see where their favourite characters can be found in the theme parks.
Rapunzel – Tangled
Find princesses and more throughout Walt Disney World Resort. If you want to see Rapunzel herself, make sure you visit the Princess Fairytale Hall at Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom Park.
One of the most popular attractions in the Magic Kingdom Park is Peter Pan’s Flight where you’ll soar across the skies. You can even meet Peter Pan for a photo and an autograph in Fantasyland.
Kevin and Russell – UP
Russell from Disney·Pixar’s Up! presents a funny and entertaining bird show with his trusty friend, Dug. You’ll find this display in the Asia realm of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. You can also catch up with the duo at Discovery Island in the same park.
There are a couple of places where you can spot this classic Disney character, Pinocchio. Grab a plate of delicious Italian food at Pinocchio Village Haus or spot him in the Festival of Fantasy Parade.
Hermione - Harry Potter
Immerse yourself in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando Resort. Cast spells and watch magic come to life with your interactive wand in special locations throughout Diagon Alley.
If you’re a fan of this galactic franchise, you should fly into Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where you can meet characters, see authentic replicas, and shop for memorabilia.
Stay in Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort, a hotel which boasts large statues of Perdita and Pongo, something that dog-lovers cannot miss! Perdita also plays a role in the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
in the Magic Kingdom Park, have you spotted her?
Shrink down to the size of a toy at Disney’s Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Buzz, Woody and Jessie are on hand throughout the realm for you to meet, greet, and to have your picture taken with.
Beauty and the Beast
to Belle by the water’s edge at the France Pavilion at Epcot. Hear about her adventures plus make sure you capture the moment by taking a photograph and getting her autograph.
Minions - Despicable Me
Every Sunday morning you can find a pair of mischievous Minions at Loews Royal Pacific Resort for a fun character breakfast. Over at Universal Studios Florida, you can join Gru, Margo, Edith and Agnes on the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 3D ride. This unforgettable ride sees you turn into a Minion, but things don’t go to plan!
We’d love to see your little ones dressed up as their favourite characters, so be sure to share your photos with us on Instagram!
