    We will be exploring Epcot on September 22nd, and the Character Spot will be closing September 8th. Will there be another Fastpass option for a Character Spot? Since Starbucks is also closing, will there be another coffee option available?

    Hi Michelle!

    I am so excited for all of the new and exciting things coming to Epcot in the next year or so, but with those changes comes some temporary and possibly permanent closures.  I did read that the Character Spot will be closing in September, but no announcement has been made if it will be temporarily housed anywhere else or not.  Currently, the many character meet and greets around Epcot do not participate in FastPass+, but you can find out when and where they will be by checking the My Disney Experience mobile app or picking up a Times Guide when you arrive at the park.  Some of my favorite characters can be found at Epcot, including Snow White in Germany and Mulan in China.

    I certainly know how important coffee is while on vacation at Walt Disney World!  I have days where I cannot function without my coffee, so having a Starbucks location in the four theme parks is ahhhhhmazing.  I have searched and searched and only found reports that a temporary Starbucks may be opening inside They Odyssey, which is by the Baby Care Center in Future World East.  You will also be able to find several Joffrey's coffee carts located throughout World Showcase including one at the beginning of World Showcase, one in the Canada Pavilion, and one in The American Adventure.  There is currently a Joffrey's located outside the main gates by the monorail entrance as well.  If you visit a Joffrey's cart, pick up one of their giant donuts!  Not only are they delicious, but they're a great use of a snack entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan.

    Have a magical day!
