    Where is the best place to meet Joy and Sadness?

    Hello, Larissa, and welcome to planDisney where core memories are made! I recently saw the new Inside Out 2 film and was smitten all over again with Joy and Sadness. I understand completely why you'd love to meet them on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit. Let's hop on our rocket to the moon to see what we can find.

    I met Joy at EPCOT in the spring, but according to the Disney Parks Blog, she recently relocated to Pixar Plaza at Disney's Hollywood Studios. You can head there to meet the blue-haired happy emotion and pose in front of a mural dedicated to the Inside Out franchise. You can also see a "Sneak Peek" showing of the new movie at Walt Disney Presents for a limited time. Don't miss the sketches and models used for the film in the theater lobby!

    While I don't see Sadness listed as a character to meet at this time, don't let that dampen your spirits. I've heard the dejected blue one is face-down on the ground at Pixar Fest at Disney's California Adventure Park on the West Coast. You never know when she might drag her downtrodden self to Florida. You can check the current character locations in your mobile app by tapping the pin icon at the bottom of your screen and selecting "Characters" from the dropdown menu above the map. 

    I know this news isn't what you hoped for, but maybe you can drown your sorrows with a limited-time offering at Catalina Eddie's. The Feeling Kinda Blue-berry Chai Iced Latte is a refreshing drink with an Inside-Out theme; Joy will take the controls when you swallow that first sip! And nothing cheers me up like a little retail therapy. Many shops are currently offering merchandise from the films; the talking Joy plush looks positively...joyful!

    Larissa, I hope you embrace all your feelings on this upcoming visit. Thanks for stopping by planDisney! Please keep us in your long-term memory for any future planning questions. We're your friend who loves to plan, Bing Bong, Bing Bong!

    Magic awaits,
