‘Inside Out’ Joy Meet and Greet at EPCOT Permanently Closed

The Joy meet and greet in the Imagination! Pavilion of EPCOT has permanently closed for the character to move to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Joy has met in front of this Imagination Land backdrop inside the Imagination! Pavilion for a few years. She appeared outside when there were social distancing requirements.

When we visited the pavilion on Tuesday, May 14, she was nowhere to be seen. There were no stanchions set up for a queue, either. We confirmed that Joy would no longer be meeting at EPCOT.

The “Inside Out” character will move to Pixar Plaza in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, with her new meet and greet beginning on June 10. This is just a few days before the release of “Inside Out 2” on June 14.

Pixar Plaza — formerly known as Pixar Place — is near the main entrance to Toy Story Land. In the space, guests can meet characters from “The Incredibles,” including Edna Mode at the Edna Mode Experience. Sulley from “Monsters, Inc.” also makes appearances and there are Pixar-themed backdrops.

Watch our video of the Joy meet and greet at the Imagination! Pavilion below.

Figment currently meets in the Imagination! Pavilion across from the Imagination Land backdrop. Mickey and Minnie meet in the lobby of the Magic Eye Theater but will move to CommuniCore Hall when it opens on June 10.
