Character changes coming to Animal Kingdom – Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Pooh too

The new “Adventurers Outpost” character location in the former Beastly Bazaar building should open ‘this spring’ according to Disney.  It will be the new home for Mickey and Minnie and should be Fastpass+ equipped when that system rolls out fully.  It will enable guests to meet Mickey and Minnie with a shorter wait, AIR CONDITIONING and a one-stop-shop.  The “Adventurers Outpost” will be located on Discovery Island near the exit of It’s Tough to be a Bug and just before the bridge that leads to Asia.  It’s not confirmed, but I would guess that the photos would be with Mickey and Minnie together in one shot like they used to do at Town Square Theater.

Here’s how Disney describes the new meet and greet location:  “The all-new Adventurers Outpost on Discovery Island is home base for your globetrotting Disney pals, where they meet friends old and new, as they get ready to set off on their next adventure.  Adventurers Outpost is a gathering place, where explorers might come together to share tales from their expeditions around the world. This new, indoor retreat is the perfect spot for meeting Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.”

Pocahontas recently moved to Bradley Falls, she is back in CAMP MINNIE MICKEY, which really makes NO sense because she belongs in Camp and Louie and Baloo belong in Africa.  Someone in Synergy must have missed that detail?

There’s no word on costume changes, but it would be nice to see Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy get some new threads to match their new accommodations.

Animal Kingdom characters set to appear in Halloween Costumes

Mickey, Minnie, Donald Pluto and Goofy have traditionally dressed in special costumes in Camp Minnie Mickey to celebrate Halloween in the Animal Kingdom theme park.  Mickey has dressed as the scarecrow you see above (photo taken at recent Happy Haunted 5K run), Minnie has dressed as a cowgirl, Goofy as a cowboy, Pluto wears a special pumpkin collar and Donald dons his coonskin cap that he used to wear at the Magic Kingdom.

The tradition of dressing for Halloween will continue this year in Camp Minnie Mickey.  The characters will wear these special costumes from October 28-November 3.  This mini-celebration will displace Baloo and King Louie, who will return to Stanley Falls in Africa for this week only.

Winnie the Pooh has traditionally appeared in his Super Slueth costume, Eeyore as a mummy and Tigger dresses for the occasion as well at Discovery Landing.  If you’re in Animal Kingdom next week, be sure to stop by and see these characters in their special costumes.

Winnie the Pooh and Hundred Acre Wood characters to leave Hollywood Studios AND Animal Kingdom?

Rumors have it that the Hundred Acre Wood characters would be cut from both Animal Kingdom AND Hollywood Studios meet and greets.  It is known that Pooh will cease to meet at Magic of Animation after Saturday in preparation for Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope to move in late October.

If the Pooh characters do leave both parks, that would leave eeyore and piglet as being available only at The Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom.

Expect a number of changes on October 1st.
