Meet Baymax at Disneyland!

Disclosure: This site uses affiliate links.

Baymax is coming back to the Disneyland Resort in California! We met Baymax at Disneyland when Big Hero 6 first came to theaters, but he has been gone for years. Baymax is flying back, and we are sharing where you can meet this huggable character on your next trip to the Disneyland resort! Baymax, Hiro, and more friends from Big Hero 6 are ready to meet you at San Fransokyo. Today we are sharing where you can meet Baymax at Disney and how to get a great deal on tickets!


Where to meet Baymax at Disneyland?

Baymax will be flying into San Fransokyo on August 31, 2023. The Disneyland Resort is home to two parks, Baymax will be in DCA or “Disney’s California Adventure Park”.  This park does have a separate admission from Disneyland. Once in DCA you can head straight to San Fransokyo and see Baymax at various times throughout the day. Baymax is not scheduled to be at Disneyland Park, so make sure to have a day scheduled to be at DCA on your trip if hugging Baymax is on your Disney bucket list!

Where is San Fransokyo in Disneyland?

San Fransokyo is at the Disneyland Resort, but it is NOT in Disneyland Park. Baymax’s home, San Fransokyo is a brand new land in Disney’s California Adventure Park.  Disney’s California Adventure Park is located at the Disneyland Resort in California right across the walkway from Disneyland. Those familiar with DCA will remember San Fransokyo as the former Pacific Wharf. The area has been reimagined as the fantasy world where you will be able to meet Baymax, Hiro, and many other characters from Big Hero 6!

Can Baymax Sign Autographs at Disneyland?

Autograph books are a souvenir that kids can use year after year meeting countless characters at Disney. We were so excited to add Baymax to our souvenir autograph book, but alas, he could not sign. Baymax has big balloon fingers. Because of Baymax’s fingers, he is not able to sign autograph books. Baymax is happy to smile for pictures and give hugs. Make sure to grab an Autograph book before you get into the park if you would like Hiro and other Disney friends to sign it. Having your book purchased and with you before you enter the park saves you time, and it can often times be less expensive to purchase outside of the Disneyland resort.

When can you meet Big Hero 6 Characters at Disney?

Baymax and Hiro are available for pictures and a short chat at various times throughout the day. While character meet and greets are subject to change, most meet and greets are from 10:30 am – 5pm daily. When characters are in a parade in either park they will not be available for a meet and greet. Make sure to ask a friendly cast member about the day’s times. At least at this time Baymax and Hiro are the only Big Hero 6 characters available for meet and greet. Friends will be delighted to know that hugging Baymax is like hugging a marshmallow!

Below is information about our first visit to meet Baymax! Updated information is above, but we are keeping the photos and info here for sentimentality.

Baymax used to hang out in Tomorrowland (but not anymore!)

Do you have a Big Hero 6 fan in your house?  Chances are you do!  If you are planning a trip to Disneyland you will be thrilled to know you can now meet Baymax at Disneyland!  Not only can you meet Baymax but you can also meet his friend Hiro!  Baymax and Hiro welcome guests in Hiro’s workshop and are so friendly!

Hiros-Workshop disneyland park

This is Hiro’s workshop from years ago! I wonder how much it will change at the new Baymax and Hiro ‘meet and greet’.


Where can you meet Baymax at Disneyland?  As you might expect – Baymax and Hiro are in Tomorrowland.  You can meet Baymax and Hiro from 10:30 am to 5pm daily in Tomorrowland!  The Big Hero 6 meet and greet is located towards the exit of Space Mountain.  If you are looking at Space Mountain you walk to the right (towards the restroom) – you will see the Big Hero 6 Baymax and Hiro meet and greet on your right just before the restrooms.


As you can imagine this is a popular new meet and greet so plan to wait a bit.  We saw a wait for up to an hour while we were there, I would imagine on busier days it can be even longer.  We visited Disneyland on a Sunday that was fairly busy so we knew we needed to go and meet Baymax and Hiro first thing.  We got into the park at about 9:15 am and headed straight for the Baymax and Hiro meet and greet.  We were the 5th party in line at 9:40 am.  The kids and I ate our breakfast while Daddy ran and got Fast Passes for Indiana Jones.  When he came back he took each big kid to a potty break and then a little walk for Little Miss C.  We needed to eat breakfast anyway so we thought it was great to eat our breakfast in line.  I highly suggest trying to double up your line wait with a meal or a snack.  Because the Baymax meet and greet is close to the restroom it also helps take care of that business as well.  While an hour can be a long time to wait it is a really special meet and greet and it didn’t seem like that long because we were occupied with breakfast and potty breaks.  The best part is when we were done with our meet and greet we had Fast Passes waiting for us for one of our favorite rides!
