Disney Pic of the Week: Jiminy Cricket
I have always found certain characters are easier to find if you check in with a park's Guest Services. I did that when my children were little as they usually wanted to see a special character or two on our trips. That was before I found AllEars.net who has a handy Character Meet and Greet FAQ to answer all your questions about characters at Walt Disney World including the likest places to find them.
Besides parades, I had never seen Jiminy Cricket at a Meet and Greet until I traveled out to Rafiki's Planet Watch with my niece's young sons. There we found Jiminy in his snazzy suite and cane as well as Pocahontas and Rafiki. It is usually not too busy there with short or non-existent lines to meet them.

I took this photo back in 2009. I recently found out Jiminy Cricket had taken a short vacation from Rafiki's Planet Watch but he has returned.
