For the record, last I was there (Monday) Goofy and Pocahontas aren't on land anymore. Maybe I just got a particularly good day, but Goofy seemed to have a perpetual line when I went (a couple weeks before) for my pictures (not a Pocahantas person, didn't track her down at the time) and I even spotted him signing while walking away to apparently go on the boat later (I was impressed). It was sad, because at the same time I saw kids that were clearly excited and wanted to meet him but he had to stick to the limited hours. Hoping that was a test and they come back. The place felt so much more lively with him there.

They are the Pandora drummers.

Would be so nice if they said goodbye to the flotillas altogether and replaced them with standard meets. (And give the drummers a real show, they're fantastic!)

If you look at the Cape May Cafe vs Trattoria Al Forno breakfast availability, you’ll see that CMC is a much more challenging ADR to grab. It’s the characters, gotta think Bon Voyage will return.

Bon Voyage still deader than dead?

Hello! I read somewhere that Pocahontas, Meeko, and Goofy are back at Animal Kingdom. Pocahontas and Meeko by Oasis. Goofy at DinoLand. Hope we get more characters soon!

It appears Buzz is no longer appearing at MK, he hasn’t been there in a few weeks and Chip and Dale are now in that location instead.

Yes! My plan is working. Our destiny approaches.

Who will control the bee population? It’s all laughs until someone is stung. smh

I believe the Disney Visa Cardholder-Exclusive meet and greet with Darth Vader reopened within the last couple of weeks, but don't see it posted here. Disney Rewards sent out this e-mail today.

Buzz Lightyear has returned to the meet-and-greet spot over by the exit to Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.

Coincidence. We are having an Airport party tonight (all the 70s Airport movies) and the costume designer is Edith Head! 😃
