So, who got the most votes?

  • From “Robin Hood”: Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Sheriff of Nottingham and Prince John
  • From “Chicken Little”: Chicken Little and Abby Mallard
  • From “Song of the South”: Brer Bear and Brer Fox

There will also be more long-lost Disney characters to see, so be sure to visit Magic Kingdom Park July 15-21 to find out who else will be visiting during “Limited Time Magic” at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Let us know which long-lost Disney friends you can’t wait to see.


  • You forgot to list Brer Rabbit with Brer Bear and Brer Fox on the “From Song of the South” sentence.

    • Thanks Philip. Yes, Brer Rabbit will be returning too.

  • That is so awesome Thomas, can’t wait to see Chicken Little and Abby Mallard

  • I know there was a Dumbo character at one point I’ve seen pictures of him. what about Huey, Dewey, and Louie you see them as Characters on the magical express video , but i’ve never seen them in the park.

  • I’d Like to see the Dumbo Character, I’ve seen pictures of him. Also I was thinking Huey, Dewey , and Louie I’ve never seen them in the parks but they are featured on the Magical express video so the costumes do exist.

  • I sure hope the fact that Brer Rabbit is missing is just a typo, since he was with Brer Fox & Bear on the voting poll. Also, I’m curious, do we know if the LTM signature cards will be the same (specifically, will the Robin Hood & friends card look exactly like the one from the other Long Lost Friends Week)? Thanks!! So excited!

  • Thomas, looks to be another solid Limited Time Magic event. Are you at liberty to tease whether this event may be held again at WDW or DL before the end of the year?

    Thanks again

  • The voting for the Brers including all three. Brer Bear, Brer Fox AND Brer Rabbit. Hoping that’s an oversight and they will in fact, all three be there!

    • All three will indeed be there. Thanks, Derrick.

  • Aren’t the Song of the South characters out over by Big Thunder Mountain pretty regularly?

  • Oh my goodness, this is SO cool! Love it!!

  • Re: Mary Ann, no they are not.

  • Aww, man! We’re not coming to the park until September. I was really hoping this would be later in the year. I have a picture from my first WDW trip with Robin Hood, would have loved to have the same picture for my daughter’s first WDW trip. 🙁 Oh well!

  • I can’t wait to meet Chicken Little and Abby Mallard. How fun!!!

  • I’m super excited about this, but I wish Clarice would be there! meeting her and the other chipmunks would make me so happy!

  • I can not believe they will be there the week before we get there 🙁 Robin Hood is my all time favorite Disney movie. Guess we don’t have a pixie dust on our side 🙁

  • Wait a second. Didn’t WDW already have their Long Lost Friends week this year? Does this mean Disneyland in CA is having it again too? I sure hope so since I couldn’t attend the first time. :\ °o°

  • Alyssa,

    Be sure to attend Characterpalooza at DHS. Max regularly appears there. 🙂


  • I am so excited to meet all our long lost friends! I hope that this will become a regular occurance. Do you know that times we will be able to meet with our friends? I want to make sure I have time to meet everyone.

  • Scrooge McDuck!!!!! I have been to Dinsey 12 times and it would be awesome to finally meet him. WIll all the characters be out everyday I will be in Disney from 7/20-7/24!

  • Are there going to be any long-lost characters at any of the other parks?
