On February 4, 2014 Rosetta will replace Periwinkle at Tinker Bell’s Magical Nook in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom. Periwinkle will not return for meet and greets after the switch.
In the long term, the Magic Kingdom is still planning to move Tinker Bell to Town Square Theater, but they are still working on the interior of the building to make it appropriate for Tinker Bell. Once Tink moves into Town Square Theater, she will be the only pixie at the meet and greet and the temporary kiosk for Fastpass+ will be relocated elsewhere.
No date has been announced at this time for the relocation.
It appears that Belle is leaving Town Square Theater tomorrow and Aurora is moving back into the the Theater with Cinderella and Rapunzel. Snow White will move from the street in Town Square to the Courtyard area next to City Hall.
Pete’s Silly Sideshow’s state hours are park open to one hour before close.
I’ve heard that Gaston is currently meeting from 10:00am to 6:00pm. I’ll need to check on Ariel’s meet and greet. The schedules should start to become more regular soon (I hope).
With Belle working toward relocating to New Fantasyland, she will no longer meet soon at Cinderella’s Royal Table for any meals. Jasmine is now taking her place on a regular basis.
Belle will soon be leaving Town Square Theater and Aurora will fill her spot leaving three blondes in TST, Rapunzel, Aurora, Cinderella. I’ve heard this could occur as early as later this week. When this occurs, one will only be able to meet Belle at Epcot for standard meet and greets with autograph opportunities.
Belle no longer meets at Town Square Theater. She now only offers Enchanted Tales with Belle inside the Magic Kingdom with just a quick photo op at the end. If you desire a regular meet with her, try France (Blue smock) in Epcot or Akershus (Gold dress) instead.
She is only in Town Square Theater from 9:00 am-4:00 pm and then she stops meeting for the evening. Aurora moves into Rapunzel’s former location next to City Hall until late afternoon, when she will return to Town Square Theater OR the TST third spot could be filled with any other princess on any given day.
What does this mean? If you plan to use Fastpass to see Rapunzel, you’ll need to do so earlier in the day. Disney isn’t advertising this switch and with much more limited hours it will lead to a great deal of confusion and frustration for guests. If Rapunzel is important to your plan, just go to Town Square Theater at park opening or grab early Fastpass.
