At first she most likely was as part of the marketing, but those funds would've run out by now. I'm sure TDO is funding that M&G now. I'm not sure why they haven't transitioned to another character yet, but I guess there hasn't been a new movie to promote.

There are empty M&G locations at Pixar Place where she could fit.

I’m sure the live action Ariel meet and greet is being paid for by the film studio. She’ll be there as long as they want to continue to fund her.

They very rarely add without removing which is such a shame. Live-action Ariel is still meeting, I feel like her days are probably numbered

That's what I thought in terms of a lineup, but wasn't sure what was currently going on. Other than Edna, the others are all just ones that appear on the street essentially, right? So, I wonder if Joy is going to be replacing Edna vs replacing one of the others vs an addition to the lineup. Anyone know the plan? @drew81

Sully, Mrs. Incredible and Mr. Incredible as well.

Edna and Frozone, I believe. I can't imagine she's replacing Edna, who has a rather elaborately themed queue and greeting area.

So... who currently meets at Pixar Plaza? And will this replace an existing M&G or be an addition to what is there?

Thanks! I'm shocked by how obsessed my kids are when they didn't show as much interest when we first saw it in theaters.

Unless she moved..She was last seen greeting guests at the gazebo just off the World Showcase promenade by Mexico.

Does Asha meet anywhere now? When we saw Wish in December in theaters I was like oh this might be a bust... but I'm thinking it might get Encanto attention once released from DisneyPlus. My girls asked me to buy the DVD and they have watched it every day since and listen to the Asha Tonie on repeat.

She’s in fact leaving Epcot to head to DHS for her new likely long term home(according to a blog that’s named after a mouse), and Hopefully we’ll see announcements for the following within the next few weeks: -Fancy Nancy’s last day on Animation Courtyard and the return to Sofia the First in that spot she held pre 2019 -A new character at Walt Disney Presents, maybe.., Luz Noceda, as the live action Ariel was just a movie promotion to a remake that wasn’t even a box office hit(Luz might be as likely as Ethan Clade which is pretty much a zero percent chance) -Ember and Wade joining the Pixar Place gang later in the year -Bruno replacing Olaf at Celebrity Spotlight -Molly McGee likely meeting on Grand Ave, probably near the old Muppet store(I know her series just wrapped up so that might be equally as unlikely as Luz)

Will you stop saying it then? Evidently they are listening... She meant we need an updated Imagination with Figment and Time keeper please :D

Most of the time neither have a wait.
