PHOTOS, VIDEO: Donald Duck, Vanellope, and Joy Character Sightings Return to EPCOT

Just yesterday, we reported how several characters would be returning to their old meet-and-greet locations at EPCOT for character “sightings”. Today, we are happy to confirm that Donald Duck, Vanellope from “Wreck-It Ralph”, and Joy from “Inside Out” have all returned to their former meet-and-greet locations at EPCOT.

As with all other character sightings, guests must remain physically distanced and may not physically interact with the characters, but can chat and take photos.

You can meet Joy and Vanellope Von Schweetz at their respective locations inside the Imagination! Pavilion.

Joy, of course, was as joyful as ever to return to Imagination Land and interact with guests.

Vanellope also took a break from playing Sugar Rush and is now greeting guests again at EPCOT. We haven’t seen Vanellope in almost two years.

Although, it seems Ralph is still stuck in his arcade game because he is not appearing with Vanellope.

Over in the Mexico pavilion, our friend, Donald Duck, has also returned to his meet-and-greet location.

Watch our video of all our friends’ return to EPCOT below:

These character sightings will start at 10:00 a.m. daily.

  1. With the areas roped off to maintain distance, why in the world did character greetings have to wait this long to start back?! This should have been done when the parks reopened.
