Recently, DIStracted author Jodi T. filled us in on the relocation of Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen who are now meeting Guests at the Heritage House in Magic Kingdom Park (Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen are Heading Down the Bayou!), and we now have learned of a few more characters that are on the move at Walt Disney World Resort.
With the closing of Magic of Disney Animation at Disney’s Hollywood Studios a few of our favorite characters have been left without a home. Hiro and Baymax from Disney Pixar Big Hero 6 are no longer doing a meet and greet with Guests, but this may change in the future. Mickey Mouse has found a new home by the Monsters Inc. meet and greet area while his best gal, Minnie has joined her friends, Chip and Dale, at the main hub outside of the Chinese Theater courtyard. Check out my article on the closing of the Magic of Disney Animation CONFIRMED! Say Goodbye to Animation Academy… Magic of Disney Animation Closing!.
Finding Pocahontas has not always been an easy task, but it looks like she has finally found a permanent spot in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. The Theme Park Tourist reports that Pocahontas will be greeting Guests at the Discovery Island Character Landing in her very own spot.
To the delight of many Guests, Flynn Ryder will now be out and about Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom. According to Theme Park Tourist, Flynn will be interacting with Guests asking them questions, looking for Maximus, and even having Guests help him solve some Flynn-clusive problems! Flynn Ryder is very busy with his mischief making, and won’t be able to stop to take pictures or sign autographs.
