The latest rumors include Doc McStuffins, Inside Out, Hiro and Baymax and a Frozen dining option.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios put up construction walls last night in front of Disney Jr to allow for construction of Doc McStuffins new meet and greet that I told you about recently. It will be themed to her Check up Clinic and will be in the Animation Courtyard. Her meet and greet is supposed to begin in May. She will continue to meet at Hollywood and Vine for breakfast and lunch as well.
Hiro and Baymax
Hiro and Baymax could be continuing through the summer. Notice I say COULD, I’m not guaranteeing that. They are being rumored to possibly keep around at least through the busy summer season, but we’ll have to wait and see. It’s unusual, because Disney never mentions this popular meet and greet on its website, times guide or app. Their schedule is included with subscription to Character Locator. I’ll keep you posted, if I hear anything more.
It’s sounding like it may be possible that the new Pixar movie “Inside Out” characters could be featured at the Imagination Pavilion in Epcot, which would be a step out of the norm as most Disney and Pixar movies characters are given the space currently occupied by Hiro and Baymax. The new movie is scheduled to release in June 2015. I think it would be a great move for a couple of reasons.
- It will encourage more people to visit this pavilion and enjoy the ride.
It will add more character meets to Epcot (even temporarily).
Anna & Elsa might join Akershus
Rumor, again, lets note that it’s a rumor, not news. Some are suggesting that Anna & Elsa might join the Akershus Princess lineup in Epcot, which could mean that Snow White and Aurora would be out, if the rumor came true. Anna and Elsa would become the official greeters at the front of the restaurant and Belle would move from table to table. That’s what the rumor that I received via email today stated.
It makes logical sense to add them for these reasons:
- It would sell out every meal. Currently the breakfast meal is popular as it offers American style food, but the Norweigan food at lunch and dinner is less popular and would sell out each time. Guests would surely snap every reservation for 180 days prior to a visit. Independent tour operators have offered a few special event dining opportunities and they usually sell out in minutes at prices up to $100 per person!
It would give guests who crave that meet and greet another opportunity to meet them outside of the FP/Rope Drop/Park Closing option at Magic Kingdom.
Well that’s the rumor round up for today. Happy Character Locating!
