The Disney Jr characters used to go inside the Animation area and meet guests when inclement weather was present in the area. The other day I was in the park to check out Character Palooza and lightning was striking in the area, so I thought I’d drop into Animation to see if these characters were there. They weren’t!
I found them under the covered area to the LEFT as you enter the Animation Building through the regular entrance. One would normally turn right to see the 15 minute Mushu movie in this area. The covered area is usually blocked with plants, so one doesn’t mistakenly enter this ghost town of an extended queue area.
The wait for Sofia the First was so short, I didn’t even have time to share the location on Twitter (www.twitter.com/kennypirate) before meeting her. I share a lot of live in-park information on Twitter btw. Jake didn’t have a line, so I met Jake after meeting Sofia and we compared muscles and did some sword training.
If it’s raining, look in this area first. If you don’t see them here, then move into the Animation Building to see if they are present.
After meeting SoFia and Jake, I made my way back to Streets of America to check out Character Palooza.
I took like 47 photos of menus so I could make sure that http://www.characterlocator.com and the Droid app are both updated. I’ve updated Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios menus over there, but not on the blog yet. I know, I’m such a slacker! If you want to see those glorious menu photos, let me know.
