Character News and Updates From Around the Web - Fantastic Epcot PIXAR event coming in May, Angelica debuts in Disneyland and Shanghai groundbreaking

Hi all,

Stitch Kingdom posted two days ago some exclusive news about a fantastic PIXAR weekend at Epcot from May 13th thru 15th. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the PIXAR Studios, Epcot will be hosting virtually all the PIXAR stars ever seen at the Parks, including some very rare treats such as the Bugs characters, and Wall-E! Sadly we will not be there for this (we will be in WDW this week though for Angelica's debut!), but we look forward to seeing all the amazing photos from this event.

The Unofficial Disney Character Hunting Guide posted to their Facebook page that the Cars stars will also be at Downtown Disney that same weekend, along with a brand new car, Finn McMissile. They did not specify if this was Florida or California, but I assume it is Florida, seeing as that is where the website is based.

Over on the Character Central forum, California correspondent Loren posted an exclusive report about some character happenings at Disneyland this weekend. Angelica from the new Pirates movie made her debut alongside Jack Sparrow in a brand new costume, and Honest John (Foulfellow) was seen about and about too!

Finally Shanghai Disneyland had its groundbreaking ceremony this week, and of course the Disney Characters were there in their Chinese finest to celebrate the occasion. The Disney Parks Blog posted some pictures from the event, and also linked to the brand new Shanghai Disneyland website, which can be found here. Eagle eyed hard core WDW fans may notice that the locations used for the press photos of the new Park are actually in the Magic Kingdom, including a very well staged shot of Main Street Train Station being used for a character dining experience!

Ok that's all for now,


Don't forget to check out this week's Character of the Week, and to vote for the next one! Who will you choose?
