Disney Just Made a HUGE Change to an EPCOT Character Meet-and-Greet

There is so much to do in EPCOT, it can be hard to do everything you want in one day.


Not only are there lots of exciting rides to experience, but if you’re there during a festival, you may be eating a bunch of snacks as well. Plus, there are tons of awesome characters to meet, but something’s going on with one of them. One character’s meet-and-greet location is gone for now.

Usually, you can meet Vanellope in the Imagination Pavilion when you exit Journey into Imagination with Figment. However, when we went into the pavilion today, there was a black curtain covering the entire meet-and-greet location.

We know that Figment is getting ready to join the Imagination Pavilion crew, so we’re wondering (Disney hasn’t confirmed anything just yet) if Figment may take this spot when he arrives later this year.

Vanellope meet and greet gone

We know many guests are going to miss meeting Vanellope, and we will too, so we’re hoping to see this meet-and-greet return sometime somewhere in the future. For now, a Cast Member informed us that Vanellope went back in the internet to be a full-time racer and is not coming back for the foreseeable future. 

It’s always a treat to meet Vanellope!

  1. Epcot has made many changes recently. One thing I really hope they do is to bring back Anna’s and Elsa’s Frozen 1 outfits and hairstyles to the Royal Sommerhus meet and greet location in the Norway Pavilion. The Frozen 1 looks are just super iconic and such classic looks for those sisters. It would bring so much joy to everyone and especially the loyal Frozen fans like myself
