Yesterday officially ended an era at Epcot as several locations closed in preparation for the major Epcot changes coming over the next few years. Among the places that closed was the Epcot Character spot where guests could go to meet and have their pictures taken with classic Disney characters. Happily, guests are not going to miss out on that opportunity, even as Epcot undergoes these changes. A new, temporary, Character Spot opened this morning just across from the former spot at Epcot: (Note: The Meet and Greet locations for Baymax and the Inside Out characters have not moved)
Signs point the way to the new Epcot Character Spot on the backside of Innoventions West.
They’ve also added it to the map:
Mickey, Minnie and Goofy are still there but the backdrop for them has changed
There are also new projections on the walls and a new design for the queue tape on the ground.
And finally, a quick look at the old Character Spot from yesterday.
