Disney Springs to become home to a Disney character meet and greet?

Sep 28, 2016 in "World of Disney"

You could soon be meeting some of your favorite Disney characters outside of the parks, in Disney Springs.

If plans go ahead as expected, we've been told that the World of Disney store will be hosting the meet and greet. Using space vacated by the relocated Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, the store will offer the meet and greet as a free experience.

The concept is expected to be tested in the near future to see if a meet and greet in that location is feasible to operate.

Disney Springs has hosted meet and greets in the past, although typically only during holiday periods or special events. Around Christmas, guests can meet Santa and Goofy. That experience is mostly queue-less, using pagers with a return time and then a short wait. It would seem likely that a similar virtual queue would be used at World of Disney.

The Disney Springs World of Disney is one of the largest Disney retail stores in the world, and was expanded in late 2015 with more merchandise space and redesign of its interior.

Disney has not yet made any announcement or confirmation of the project, so at this point should be treated as speculation.
