Character updates coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios this summer

A couple of quick updates on some character changes coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios this summer.

First, with the opening of Toy Story Land, expect to see the Green Army Men all become "face characters" - much like Sarge. We understand that back-stage testing is already underway on the new look.

Second, over at 'Walt Disney Presents,' the Star-Lord and Baby Groot meet and greet will be ending late summer. No word yet on what will be replacing it.

Disney is yet to announce either of these changes, so until then, they should be treated as speculation.

Hopefully that's the case, but with all of the other entertainment cuts and cost-saving changes, I'm not banking on anything.

Oh. I thought they were finally getting rid of them for another M&G to an upcoming movie.

Your excitement at what are most likely cost-cutting measures is bizarre.

He was seen occasionally at one of WDW's previous Easter pre-parades a few years ago.

Disney MadduxSep 16, 2018

Huh. Thought I saw that he was one of the characters that randomly come out in DHS, guess not.

I don’t think Roger has appeared at WDW since he was removed from Spectro during its turn of the century refurb. Longer than that for a greet. He is quite literally, toast

1. FINALLY! 2. Who will take their spot? Ralph and Vanellope are going to Epcot, and other than Mary Poppins Returns, no new big movies coming out.

Disney MadduxSep 16, 2018

Well, Ralph and Vanellope are going into Character Spot 2 this November... Maybe some of the characters that come out at random get a M&G (Like Roger Rabbit pls)? And move Olaf to Epcot! When people see Frozen in Epcot, they expect Anna, Elsa, and Olaf. They get Anna and Elsa, but have to go to a different park for Olaf. So move Olaf to Epcot, put Judy and Nick in Olaf's place (or maybe expand Mickey & Minnie's M&G area with Pluto, Goofy, Donald, and Daisy).

Maybe Marry Poppins? New movie is out this Christmas, I believe.

Oh ok. My initial thoughts were Hollywood Studios unless I was mistaken.

RteetzSep 15, 2018

I believe Epcot.

Seems like Epcot is the likely choice for Wreck it Ralph esp given new playground.

It’ll be announced soon.
