    Hello Panel! Now that Sophia and Doc have been added to the Play & Dine lineup, is there anywhere in HS where my DS can meet any of the Little Einstein characters? Also, any plans to add a parade back to the HS schedule? Thx so much for all your help

    Hi Alyssa ~

    ​It is always very exciting when new characters join the line-up of a dining or meet and greet location but I know that some little ones will miss the characters that take a little break as well. Right now, The Little Einsteins are zooming through the skies in their favorite rocket ship and are not making any regularly scheduled appearances at Disney World.

    I have seen some of the Little Einsteins appear during the Disney Junior Dance Party at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This is held only during evening Extra Magic Hours and specific character appearances are not guaranteed. So there is a chance that you may or may not see any of the Little Einsteins. We have always seen Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy appear.

    You may want to go ahead and try to prepare your son. Perhaps there are other favorite characters that he would like meet that you can create some excitement over and divert the attention away from not meeting any of the Little Einsteins. If he has other favorite characters he would like to meet, we'll be happy to help you locate them.

    Hollywood Studios retired the Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun Parade in April 2013 and it has not been replaced at this time. I have not heard of any plans for a new parade but Disney always keeps us on our toes so you never know what exciting thing they will announce next. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news about new attractions, shows, and parades. You can subscribe to the Disney Parks Blog's daily emails so that you will be notified of new blog posts with all the latest exciting news.

    ​Please feel free to keep the planning questions coming. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
