Epcot Character Spot to undergo refurbishment

If you read the blog regularly, you’ll remember that I have posted several different rumors concerning the Epcot Character Spot and other Future World character meets.  Well, it appears that the Character Spot will be closing until late January or February to provide a much needed face lift.  It will likely close Sunday.

Goofy will join Daisy toward the opening of the park.  Mickey, Minnie and Pluto will move elsewhere.  I’ve heard that Donald will only meet in Mexico.  I would love to see Mickey and Minnie together in futuristic costumes, but I’m not getting my hopes up.
I value the indoor meets for the AC and how it helps characters stay cool in the Florida heat, but I love how characters meeting in open spaces really bring life into the parks.  Of course, I would be willing to give up one of the fabs in order to see Figment return.

What do you think?
