    Hi! We are arriving on 15th Sep to celebrate my 30th birthday, Today was FP+ day and I've just realised Epcot Character Spot will be closed - am mega gutted! Where else can I meet Baymax and Sadness? They were the two I was most looking forwards to!

    Hi Hannah!

    I'm happy to hear that you are getting ready for a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! There is so much magic for Guests to enjoy at the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs and now is the perfect time to visit. Are you excited to explore Black Spire Outpost during your vacation? I know I can't wait to travel to a galaxy far, far away when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens next month at Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    The Disney Imagineers are always working on new things for Guests to enjoy. Epcot is undergoing an incredible transformation with an entirely new theme park entrance, as well as new pavilions for Guests to enjoy. Unfortunately, this means that the Epcot Character Spot has had to temporarily close and the opportunities to meet Baymax at Hiro's Workshop and visit Headquarters to meet Joy and Sadness will be ending. While several of the Characters from the Character Spot will be meeting with Guests at other locations in Epcot, we haven't heard any information about new chances to meet our favorite personal healthcare robot and Riley's emotions. However, Character Experiences are always subject to change, so I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements about new Disney friends you can meet during your vacation. You never know who you will meet during a visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    If you are interested in meeting Disney Characters, I recommend that you include Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in your vacation itinerary. This special event generally offers Guests an opportunity to meet some rare Disney Characters and is the perfect opportunity to check some "must-do" Character Experiences off of your list!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
