PHOTOS - New meet and greet area constructed at the Japan Pavilion to celebrate Japanese youth culture

Mar 05, 2015 in "Japan (Pavilion)"

What appears to be a new meet and greet area has been constructed at the Japan Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase.

Located behind the bridge spanning the pond, and adjacent to the Katsuri Grill, the new area also includes queue space.

It would seem this may be the location for an upcoming Harajuku meet and greet which Disney has recently been holding auditions. From the Disney Auditions website:

"Disney Creative Entertainment is seeking female performers for a new offering at the Walt Disney World® Resort, near Orlando, FL, celebrating the Tokyo neighborhood of Harajuku, known internationally as the center of Japanese youth culture and fashion.

Potential performers should be comfortable with fashion modeling, as well as posing and interacting with Disney Park guests while in costume. Knowledge of history and interest in Japanese culture and language is a plus."
