RUMOR: Doc McStuffins to begin appearing in “early 2014”

As far as I’m aware, Drew81 broke the news last week on a web forum that Doc McStuffins will be coming to Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in early 2014.  He didn’t provide an actual date and the thread failed to mention that Doc McStuffins will be an exclusive character for Hollywood and Vine character breakfast and lunch.  She will take the place of one of the other characters in the rotation, likely Agent OSO (sorry) or June.  I’ll let you know when I hear the proposed date that she will begin and other details.  I wouldn’t want anyone to book an expensive meal just with the hope that she might appear.  Of course, you could always cancel by midnight the night before your reservation with no penalty.

I’ve also heard that we should expect Doc to appear in the Walt Disney World Christmas parade, the segment is supposed to be filmed this Saturday.

Jake and the Neverland Pirates Character Meal


UPDATE:  It doesn’t appear that this meal change will be taking place any time soon.


There’s a new rumor going around that Jake, Izzy (pink bandana and shirt), Captain Hook and Mr Smee will be taking over the breakfast and lunch “Play and Dine” character meals at Hollywood and Vine in Hollywood Studios.  The current meal isn’t nearly as popular as Walt Disney World Entertainment would like to see.  It’s seen as an underperforming offering and they hope by adding Izzy as a new character and bringing Hook and Smee out more will inspire new bookings.

The move would send Agent Oso and June into the rare/retired character status and Handy Manny will continue to meet in his usual location.  I think it would be even more fun to put Peter Pan into the meal (he has appeared on this show) and have him interact with Capt. Hook.  We used to have some great interactions with those to characters a few years ago in the Magic Kingdom.  If they had to drop Smee to add Pan, I think it would bring a broader appeal.
