Rumor Round Up: Epcot Edition – Heroes and Emotions

Rumor Round Up: Epcot Edition – Heroes and Emotions

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

11/23/15  Another installment of the Rumor Round Up for you today.  We’ll look into rumors concerning some possible character meet and greets in Epcot.Epcot photo with Spaceship Earth

Back in July I reported that the Big Hero 6 characters could receive a new home “in several months.”  Well, rumor has it that Epcot is ready to become Big Heroes to many fans.  Some forms of the rumor say that Baymax will meet alone, while others are stating it will include Hiro and Baymax.  I would expect this meet to begin in Innoventions in Mid December.  One twitter poster said to expect December 18.

In related news the emotions of Joy and Sadness from Inside Out are also rumored to begin meeting in Epcot in a similar time frame.  My son and I had the opportunity to meet them at the Disney Parks Blog meet up and they were a lot of fun.  Joy and Sadness previously only offered regular meet and greets in Hong Kong.

We should expect an announcement very soon on these meets, exact locations and start times.  Rumor hasn’t been stated whether this is just a Christmas holiday offering or a long-term offering.  I’m excited and hope the rumor comes true!  What about you?

If Hiro doesn't appear I'd be really upset and so will many Disney fans. Not the ones who give into the commercial of just Baymax for the movie, but the ones who really do love visiting the characters and love the movies. Hiro is the main character of the movie (more than Baymax, as it is Hiro's story) and he's one of the few male face characters who the story solely belongs too. Last ones were Herc and Aladdin. I've been hearing Baymax only. Which is great... but it's not the same without Hiro.

As popular and cool as Baymax is, he's kind of underwhelming by himself. He's very large, cumbersome, and his movements are very limited, and so I hope Hiro is with him because in addition to him being the main character, being able to engage with him would make for a much more fulfilling experience

I can see part of Innoventions being turned into a Big Hero 6 meet/robotics exhibit. Is it safe to say that Joy and Sadness could be in the Imagination building?

My theory/guess is that they're coming out because of Soarin's closure and they need more things to do in the park. Also on an unrelated note, are Tiana and Naveen back in their gazebo?

Correct and no
