Character Spot in Epcot to Have Lengthy Refurbishment

The Character Spot, a meet and greet area found in the Innoventions West side of Epcot, will be seeing an approximate 4 month renovation.  Here, guests could typically meet the Fab 5 characters (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and Goofy), with relative ease.  The refurbishment is set to start this Sunday, October 21 (at least as of right now), and last until mid-February.

Word is that during the refurb, these characters will be able to be found in other areas around the park.  Make sure to pick up a Times Guide for exact locations of your favorite one!

  • Will the character meet that also takes place in Innoventions West specifically for Disney Visa holders be affected by this?

    • The afternoon photo opportunity for those with Disney Visa cards is in a completely different location from the Epcot Character Spot that is being renovated.

  • Any chance they will finish earlier than mid-February??? Will the character stay together?

  • I hope they are going to have a nicer backgound for photos when they are finished. The old one was so busy it really took away from the photos!

    I also hope they are not going to “theme” them too much. With the changes to Fantasyland, isn’t this the only place left to meet them in their “traditional” iconic outfits?

  • Oh dear..was looking forward to my free 5 x 7 for becoming a Disney Visa Debit Card Holder. Will they be doing those photos somewhere else then?

  • I love being able to see all 5 characters together but am sure the changes will be worth it. We’ll find the Fab 5 wherever they are and then celebrate their exciting new home with them when it reopens in Feb!

  • Did this close already. I did note see note of it on Disney’s website?
