Mouse Gear Relocation, Meet & Greets Closing, and New Walkways Opening at Epcot Starting January 2020

Earlier this year, several locations in Epcot's Future World closed to make way for future projects like Journey of Water inspired by “Moana,” and the new pavilion that will play host to park events and festivals. In addition to that, other locations will be impacted in January 2020, including the following:
  • On January 4, 2020, Mouse Gear will have its final day of operation in its current location, and will reopen in its temporary location in Innoventions East on January 5, 2020. The temporary location will also be called Mouse Gear.
  • Also on January 5, 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 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.
As the park continues to change, new and expanded walkways will open to help Guests travel around the impacted areas.
  • Some walkways are complete (such as the Rose Walk) and even more are still in development, like the walkway leading to the Family Play Zone.
  • Coming soon and continuing through January 2020, new walkways will open connecting the west side of the Main Entrance to the promenade near The Seas with Nemo & Friends; and the east side of the Main Entrance to Future World East near Mission: SPACE and the new, temporary Mouse Gear location.
