    I just heard the Animation Courtyard is permanently closed! We are headed to WDW in September and had our hearts set on meeting Baymax and Hiro. Will they be available somewhere else in DHS or even another park? Thanks

    Fist bump, Jessi (bah-a-la-la-la)!

    It's sad, but true.  The Magic of Disney Animation attraction has officially closed its doors, which also means that Baymax and Hiro have left their garage workshop and headed back to San Fransokyo for now.  Even though Baymax is not fast, hopefully he and Hiro will both be back giving out hugs and showing off their sweet ninja skills at Walt Disney World very soon.  

    I'd recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as your trip gets closer for updates, and also checking the My Disney Experience app occasionally to see if they've made it back to town.  You can also pick up a Times Guide when you arrive at each park to see what characters are scheduled to be out and about the day of your visit.

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Jessi!  Please write back if we can help answer any other questions.
