Winnie the Pooh says, “You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” And that he did. On August 29th for a special pass-holder perk he ventured from his usual spot in the Hundred Acre Woods at Magic Kingdom. He made his way over to Epcot to the United Kingdom’s Pavilion, where behind The Toy Soldier Shop is Christoper Robin’s Room. His room was out of the story book pages. So quaint and precious with all his little toy soldiers, trucks and hanging airplane, as well as pictures and his view out his bay window was just like the illustrations of the beloved books.
It was a special day, as it was also the start of the Annual Food and Wine Festival, so maybe he wanted to come to eat too, but for this one day only visit he treated the pass holders to a special meet and greet. Chip and Company was there, and let me tell you he was as sweet as honey!
I was lucky enough to catch him soon before he returned home. There was no line at all to meet him it was a private greeting in that sense. I felt like a V.I.P. I was able to have plenty of time visiting with him. We even fluffed pillows and gazed out the window together. I even returned with my son who was able to meet him for the first time and he fell in love with him. Silly ol’ Pooh Bear even got down on his level and played peekaboo with him. This meet and greet was something special. One I will never forget.
It’s one of those things I love about being a pass holder. You never know when special perks like this may pop up and add just that little extra touch of Disney Magic. This day there was also a special pop up meet and greet at Animal Kingdom too with Baloo, and the elusive Tarzan, and Jane. What a treat!
