Changes are coming to Disney World starting next week to prepare for the new additions and future projects that will change the overall look and feel of Epcot. While many are just temporary moves we wanted to give you a heads up on what to expect…

Mouse Gear

On January 4th, 2020, Mouse Gear will have its final day of operation at its current location and will reopen in its temporary location in Innoventions East starting on January 5, 2020.

Epcot Character Spot

On January 5th, 2020, the character greetings in Innoventions West will close or move to new locations, including:

    • Mickey Mouse will greet Guests in the queue area of the Disney-Pixar Short Film Festival in the Imagination! pavilion
    • Minnie Mouse will greet Guests in the World Showcase Gazebo. As a result of Minnie’s move, Daisy will relocate to Future World East.
    • Goofy will greet Guests in the Main Entrance near Spaceship Earth.
    • Joy will greet Guests in the Imagination! pavilion, near Wreck-it Ralph in the ImageWorks area.
    • Sadness and Baymax will not be available to greet guests at this time.

Walt Disney once said Epcot “would always be in a state of becoming” – it is a place that changes with the times. So be patient while things move forward at my favorite park EPCOT!

  1. Walt said a lot of things about EPCOT. Just because the vision he had isn’t what we have today doesn’t mean he never talked about it.

  2. Walt said nothing regarding EPCOT. It was not a reality when he was alive, nor was it intended to be a theme park.
