Epcot Character Spot Closing on September 8 at the Walt Disney World Resort

Earlier this afternoon, the Walt Disney World Resort confirmed that on September 8, 2019, refurbishment will begin on the core of Future World at Epcot, including the area between Spaceship Earth and World Showcase Promenade. While this work is underway, offerings at and around the Fountain of Nations will be temporarily relocated or closed. 


As part of this project, the Epcot Character Spot will close on September 8, 2019. Guests visiting the park will continue to be able to meet their favorite Disney Characters at other locations throughout Epcot:
  • Minnie Mouse will move into the World Showcase Gazebo.
  • Daisy Duck will move to The American Adventure.
  • While new locations are being developed for Mickey Mouse and Goofy, they will temporarily appear in Innoventions West.
    • In the near future, Mickey Mouse will move to an all-new location in the Imagination! Pavilion. 
    • Goofy will venture out into the park—and soon will find a new home.
  • Joy will move soon too—to a joyous new home.
  • Winnie the Pooh will greet Guests at Christopher Robin’s bedroom in the United Kingdom pavilion
Check back soon for even more details about the important changes coming to Epcot and the rest of Walt Disney World!
