Rumor Round up: Peter Pan and Wendy may fly again, Mickey held up and Noah style Princesses

(Rumors: There is no guarantee that anything will happen at Walt Disney World until it is officially announced or actually happens and is subject to change at any time without notice)

According to Attractions Magazine’s official Twitter account @attractions, Peter Pan will begin meeting with Wendy again beginning this Sunday at the extended queue for Peter Pan’s Flight in the Magic Kingdom.  Other reports have them landing near the Adventureland entrance on the Frontierland side.  I guess we’ll see soon what happens.  As you can see in the photo above, Pan and Wendy used to meet next to Philharmagic before it was transformed into a magic portal for Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.  It was a great location with shade a nook for a line and Tink was there above them.

In other news the new Mickey & Minnie meet to be known as The Adventurer’s Outpost in Animal Kingdom is expected to open on May 15th instead of the original target date of May 12th.  Eeyore will still be leaving the park with Donald & Daisy moving to Discovery Island Boat Dock and Pooh and Tigger taking over for Mickey and Minnie in Camp.   Pocahontas recently made ANOTHER move.  This time she moved to Discovery Island CAMP MINNIE MICKEY (effective 5/12/2013).  We met Mickey and Minnie in Camp together by being the first to arrive 🙂

I just realized that I hadn’t actually posted about the new Princess meet and greet that will be coming later this year.  It was reported on numerous sites that the meet will offer two separate lines (each with FP+) that will feature Cinderella + one other princess and Rapunzel + one other princess.  Guests will know exactly which extra princess they will meet with before entering the queue.  Aurora will definitely be in the rotation and I fully expect Snow White not to have a dedicated meet and greet in the Magic Kingdom after the change.   Merida will be staying in her location and the new “Frozen” princess will end up with a new location.  I haven’t heard of any plans to cancel Tiana or Jasmine’s regular meets in the Magic Kingdom yet.  Jasmine has made random appearances at Town Square Theater, especially in the evenings.

I’ve also heard that Sofia the First will not begin appearing until “Fall.”  Initially it was reported that she would begin in “Late spring.”  If Fall is correct, it MAY point to Sofia taking Wreck-it Ralph’s location as it would be a full year for Ralph and Vanellope.  Ralph wasn’t intended to be a very long-term character.  He’s already been retired from Disneyland.

    1. I’m sure at some point they will leave, just don’t know when. That is a temporary location that is used to feature upcoming movies. Monsters Inc is just making over its location rather than moving in there.

  1. We go the second week of June 2013 this year. Is there a link where we can get that weekly schedule as soon as it is posted, without having to enter a park? We get there Sunday evening and would love to be able to “tweak our week” around the characters, our granddaughter’s number one priority the past 2 years!

  2. Glad to hear you feel the same about Mulan not being a princess…..I only included her because she gets grouped with everything as a princess

  3. Who do you think the other rotating princess will be in fairytale hall? If Merida, Tina, and Jasmine are all staying in their spots, Ariel has her grotto, Cinderella and Rapunzel are the for sures, and Bell only does story time that doesn’t leave very many left. You said Aurua you think would rotate and suspect Snow White to no longer be in mk. I don’t really picture Pochontas or Mulan moving in. Will there be duplicates in the park then?

    1. Jasmine will probably do some evening work or only new area. I doubt poca will join, doesn’t fit the royal feel. Mulan (not a princess) may be random. I don’t see Tiana leaving. Jasmine could lose her spot and only be morocco and mk rotation, so we’ll see. Merida isn’t going anywhere.

  4. I’d love to be able to meet with Wendy again. Met with her and Peter Pan several times years ago, 2006 maybe?, at Pirates of the Caribbean. Hook and Smee were just across the way. We were the only ones there first thing of a morning and Hook was heckling Pan and Wendy trying to get us to see him first. What a blast!

  5. I will have two very upset girls if Sofia shows up later. We leave in 4 weeks! Hoping for the Pan and Wendy as Peter is at the top of my 6 year olds list to meet! Just counting the days! So need a break! So excited!

      1. I know, and we all appreciate that! I’m not blaming you. 🙂 Fall season starts Sept 14th for the room rates, so maybe I’ll get lucky! Fingers crossed!!

      2. Take advantage of any opportunities that come your way. That’s what we’ve had to learn over the years. Once we planned a vacation based on Disney announcing a ride would be open then. We show up and the opening was delayed by a week and missed it, but caught it the next trip. We did miss some characters like Emile and Remy and Bowler Hat Guy because they fell between trips though 😦

  7. From the beginning:
    I really hope Wendy is available for meets again soon!
    Will be looking forward to meeting Mickey and Minnie in thier new spot, and I’m really looking forward to meeting Donald and Daisy, and I think Pooh and Tigger will make great additions to Camp! Just sad that Eeyore had to be cut in the process.Glad Pocahontas will be meeting in a more central spots! 🙂
    So….if there making a new princess meeting spot…might someone new move into Town Square Theatre? Maybe that’s where they’ll be putting Anna from Frozen?
    I hope they don’t cut Tiana! I’ve always just missed her before, and I really want to meet her!
    Sofia taking Ralph’s spot makes sense, considering how close the spot is to Playhouse Disney live!

    1. The Anna from Frozen would make a good fit in the current princess location, if they could have them both ready in time.

  8. Oh please let Sofia be there by mid-September! My daughter will be crushed if we miss her by just a few days. I was silly enough to let her in on the “Spring” rumors so she already knows there is a chance of seeing her. It would also be great to meet Wendy. Our trips have never matched up with her meet schedule. Any ideas when we might know who will be around for MNSSHP? Tarzan, Daisy and Donald, Pooh’s crew? Love the site, can’t wait for the iPhone app!!

    1. I wouldn’t expect too many changes to MNSSHP, but no one knows right now. It’s been fairly consistent except that they started offering more villains in the hub the last couple of years and Phineas and Ferb joined taking the place of Timon and Rafiki

  9. We will be very disappointed if Snow White no longer regularly meets at MK. Hoping that Ralph and Vanellope meet until the end of October at least so we get to meet them since this has quickly become a favourite movie for us 🙂

    1. Snow White’s home meet for WDW is considered Germany, as is the case with Aurora and Belle in France etc… My best guess is that Snow White won’t have a regular MK meet after the changes are made.
