Princess Merida from Disney-Pixar’s upcoming movie Brave began holding a preview of her Play and Greet at Fairytale Garden in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom.
This new meet and greet experience allows guests the opportunity to meet Merida, who is the newest character from the minds of Pixar. This passionate and fierce young woman has a Scottish brogue and flaming red, curly hair.
In addition to meeting Merida, you’ll get to meet the Baby Bears. What is especially neat about this portion of the adventure is that these bear cubs are animated, so they will blink, move their heads, and you may even catch them laughing as well as sort of smiling!
But this is no ordinary meet and greet. Not only do you get to meet characters from the movie, guests are also taught archery techniques and are given the chance to color a picture based off the movie. Parents, have no fear that your child will put an eye out learning how to shoot a bow and arrow. The arrow appears to have a rubber tip, and there are Cast Members there to teach guests proper techniques.
The play and greet experience will continue on an intermittent trial basis until it officially opens on May 18, 2012. Then you, too, will be able to “change your fate.”
