Here’s to hoping she gets to stay until Sept 12th for my oldest to meet her. 🤞

When we were down there, her line was less than the Disney Junior characters. I was surprised when we walked up and there were 3 people in front of us. I will say I'm sure part of that is the meet area is pretty hidden away. Honestly I forgot all about it til we walked by and looked up at the sign.

T They are interesting versions of them to say the least..

I can see them showing up at some point with other Pixar characters probably on the cruises.

I do wonder if Ember and Wade were to have taken over if the film was more successful as they do have character versions of them and I doubt they will ever come to the parks now.

If enough the CMs gets a different job and they have to budget a recast it will be finished. That level. Ha.

Define “popular”? 🤪

Haha, thank you! Hoping she stays until mid September so the kids can meet her.

Originally heard through Labor Day. Not sure if she’s popular enough to extend.

Till the money from Studios runs out… lol Being sarcastic but can’t imagine it will run much longer. Probably until they decide who will replace her.

This may have already been said, but how long will this meet and greet last?

I'm cool with it if it's momentary. Afterall they need the publicity for the new movie.

Yup which is the Disney equivalent of taking a year to Backpack in Europe.

Was there an Ariel M&G at the theater? ;)
