Here is a look inside from TikTok user maddiebell03.

The Mickey & Friends meet and greet follows the Character Spot setup, with separate sets for each of the three characters—currently Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Goofy—all dressed in their standard costumes.

Mickey & Friends is located in CommuniCore Hall, replacing the former Character Spot, and will open to guests on June 10, 2024.

I agree it definitely should have some big banners on the walls at least. But the difference from concept art to reality is that there are no current festivals. So, no festival displays in the flex space.

If you take out the art displays from the concept art, it is what the finished interior looks like. They either should have delayed it to the next exhibition (which would get complaints for it taking even longer), or should have added a temporary exhibit until a festival came around

That is clearly showing a use of the "flex space" as a figment inspired origami and art exhibition which will never happen...in the meantime please enjoy this thoroughly unattractive completely useless space....

How did we go from this... To this? I get that it's flex space and all, but couldn't we at least have had some character to the space (that is easily movable/removable) for when the space is not otherwise in active use?

I wouldn’t call it a lie. Inconsistent performance from that light system has been pretty thoroughly documented, and when it’s as bad as it’s been, the pictures have been pretty definitive. If anything, they’re an IP tie-in to show up as reliably as the Flying Dutchman.

Let's see how hurricane prone this area will be when they start rolling in..

You know how everyone on here’s favorite thing to complain about is the lights in World Celebration being broken? Well that was a complete lie. Photo taken tonight

‘Pluto’s Cornhole’ sounds like the name of some new festival snack food offering. Or a very non-family friendly film on vhs tape. 🥴 -

I feel like I should be studying for my exam for next period on the thesis of how one little spark becomes inspiration and then finding the balance of good food that sings for nutrition...

Fun fact: if you walk close to the walls you can hear the music better that syncs to the Gershwin Neon Tunnel as it plays "Rhapsody in Blue" United Airlines jingle they use..
