Farewell Animal Kingdom characters

6/3/2012

The removal of characters continues at the Animal Kingdom.  I’ve been informed that Timon, Thumper, Bunny, & Meeko have stopped regular meets at Walt Disney World effective today. Daisy will no longer offer her lunch-time meeting and Goofy will no longer meet in Camp Minnie Mickey.  Goofy is supposed to continue to meet in Dinoland and Baloo and King Louie will move to Camp.  No word if any characters will replace Thumper, Bunny or Meeko at this time.  I’ll change the schedule as I receive information.

Sunday Squeeze – Baloo, Reto’s friend

 Today’s Sunday Squeeze is brought to you by Reto Kurmann, a friend of the site who lives in Switzerland!

This photo was taken in early November 2010 at the Animal Kingdom. I was on my 2nd Walt Disney World vacation and since Baloo is my HUGE favorite character, kind of a childhood hero, I went to see him every day at least once. I wanted to do more than just pose for a standard picture and get his autograph. I had a copy of a Jungle Book storybook with me. “Papa Bear” really appreciated that and I got some great photos of him reading his story with me. Of course, he also signed the book.  Since Baloo hardly ever had a line due to his remote location, I was able to meet him several times during my week-long visit. Got some great comments from CMs and other guests too. These were truly magical moments to me, being able to spend some real quality time with Baloo. I even let WDW Guest Communications know about that and sent them a letter with the photos.

 

The second magical moment also took place in November 2010, again with Baloo. He recognized me every time I went to him because I’ve met him so many times during that week. One day, when he came out for another set, I approached him and asked him, if he would walk hand-in-paw with me to his meeting location. He agreed, took my hand and so I strolled with Baloo on my side through the “jungle” of the Animal Kingdom.  I felt like Mowgli. 🙂

 

The third magical moment: Baloo and I danced together  in the Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party. One day, a Photopass photographer located in the hub noticed that and took some pics of me dancing with Baloo. I didn’t notice that photos were being taken of me and I was quite surprised and happy when the Photopass CM handed me the card after I hugged Baloo.

(Thanks for sharing your special moments Reto!  Do you have special moments with characters to share?)
