Eeyore will be leaving the Animal Kingdom at closing of the park on May 9. This means that Eeyore will only be available at Crystal Palace or training meets. I had heard rumblings for a while that Eeyore would be cut, but hoped they would change their minds. Winnie the Pooh and Tigger will move into Camp Minnie Mickey. Pooh and Tigger move into
Camp on May 10.
Donald and Daisy will move to Discovery Island boat dock where the Pooh characters are currently meeting. This will be a return to Animal Kingdom for Daisy, who used to meet during lunch in Camp Minnie Mickey. This area will offer FASTPASS + once that system is completed.
Mickey and Minnie will move into the all new Adventurers Outpost beginning May 12 as predicted earlier. This offers guests another indoor air-conditioned meet and greet for Mickey. It hasn’t been announced if they will meet as a couple or separate.
The new “Adventurers Outpost” character location in the former Beastly Bazaar building should open ‘this spring’ according to Disney. It will be the new home for Mickey and Minnie and should be Fastpass+ equipped when that system rolls out fully. It will enable guests to meet Mickey and Minnie with a shorter wait, AIR CONDITIONING and a one-stop-shop. The “Adventurers Outpost” will be located on Discovery Island near the exit of It’s Tough to be a Bug and just before the bridge that leads to Asia. It’s not confirmed, but I would guess that the photos would be with Mickey and Minnie together in one shot like they used to do at Town Square Theater.
Here’s how Disney describes the new meet and greet location: “The all-new Adventurers Outpost on Discovery Island is home base for your globetrotting Disney pals, where they meet friends old and new, as they get ready to set off on their next adventure. Adventurers Outpost is a gathering place, where explorers might come together to share tales from their expeditions around the world. This new, indoor retreat is the perfect spot for meeting Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.”
Pocahontas recently moved to Bradley Falls, she is back in CAMP MINNIE MICKEY, which really makes NO sense because she belongs in Camp and Louie and Baloo belong in Africa. Someone in Synergy must have missed that detail?
There’s no word on costume changes, but it would be nice to see Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy get some new threads to match their new accommodations.
