The Epcot Character Spot location for Goofy, Mickey and Minnie, as well as the one for Joy and Sadness and Baymax are set to close this fall. This is where you’ll find some of those characters:
The Epcot Character Spot, Club Cool, Fountainview Starbucks, the Camera Center and Colortopia in what remains of Innoventions will close September 8, 2019. This closure is due to the massive rebuild of Epcot’s entrance and grand mall areas into what is known as Project Gamma. The new design will be more open and will include a centrally located Festival Center. The Character Spot will return to this area in the future.
Here’s what is happening with the character meet and greets in the mean time.
- Minnie Mouse will move to the World Showcase Gazebo where Pluto currently meets
- Daisy Duck will move to the American Adventure pavilion in the back of the park
- Goofy and Mickey will meet in a temporary location in Innoventions West area. Eventually, they will meet in the Imagination pavilion.
- Joy and Sadness new location has not been announced.
- It’s likely that Baymax will be retired.
- Winnie the Pooh will return to the United Kingdom Pavilion in Christopher Robin’s room
All these details will be provided on Character Locator for planning purposes as well.
