“UP” Characters Will Meet n’ Greet at Animal Kingdom

"UP" Characters Will Meet n' Greet at Animal Kingdom

Most of you have already heard about the character situation at Disney’s Animal Kingdom…many of the characters are no longer going to be doing meet n’ greets at the popular character locations. When we heard this news there was no rumor of who would take the place of whom, but on the heels of what I can only assume was a huge backlash, Disney has thrown us a bone and announced that the characters from Pixars “UP” will soon be joining our friends at Animal Kingdom for meet n’ greets.

For some of you, Carl Fredrickson and Dug won’t ease your pain over the loss of Jiminy Cricket but the good news is at least it seems we might not be loosing as many characters as we thought…perhaps they are just relocating and bringing in fresh faces. Ok, that’s mostly probably a lie but I’ll miss Jiminy too!

This coming week Jiminy Cricket, Pochahontas, Turk, Lilo and Stitch will say goodbye to the Animal Kingdom. Along with the character loss “The Adventure Begins” welcoming show and the “Adventurers Celebration Gathering.”

  1. I’m happy about Up, but I am so sad about Lilo and Stitch. Our last trip Stitch made me give him a kiss on the nose before he got his picture taken with me. He will be missed. 🙁

  2. Wait..what?!? No opening ceremony show?

    Why are they taking away characters?? Is there a link to the article on this?

    Yeah! For UP characters though….my boys love that movie! 🙂
