In a rollercoaster of emotions, the beloved Joy meet and greet from Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” has permanently closed its doors at EPCOT, causing a wave of Sadness among fans. For several years, visitors have relished the chance to interact with Joy, the effervescent embodiment of happiness, in a vibrant and colorful setting within the park. However, there is no reason to feel Anger or Fear at Joy’s departure, as the character is not leaving the parks but simply preparing to relocate to Pixar Plaza at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
