    Who are you going to meet today?

    6/4/11
    On May 29th, the new Phineas and Ferb Meet and Greet Opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios after several weeks of delay. The new meet & greet features a cartoony backdrop of their backyard and many “movie” props from their zany adventures. Although Perry is not part of the Meet & Greet, Guests can spot Agent P out on a mission if they keep their eyes peeled on the main backdrop. The main interactivity comes between the “director” and Guests when they are queued in-between meet & greet sets. When Phineas and Ferb come out to start a set of meet and greets they do a very brief “show” and then begin the meet and greet set. Initial reports from the meet and greet has been that it is very popular and has even reached 60 minute queue times. Meet & Greet sets will be conducted intermittently from 10:30 am – 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

    More Memories

    6/4/11
    Entertainment Cast have reported that The Magic, The Memories, and You nighttime castle show will continue through 2012. The show will reportedly continue to use real Guest photographs as part of the show during the extended run.

    Out of Season?

    6/4/11
    Anaheim Produce on Sunset Blvd. at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has closed for a month long refurbishment. The location closed on May 23rd and will re-open June 25, 2011. At the time of the closure, a reason for the multi-week refurbishment was not cited.

    A Sweet Addition

    6/4/11
    BabyCakes NYC has recently expanded its hours. The Downtown Disney Marketplace snack location is now open from 9:30 am – 11:00 pm daily.

    2/27/11 More sweets have recently been added to the Disney Dining Plan. The BabyCakes NYC location at the Downtown Disney Marketplace has recently joined the Disney Dining Plan. Currently, one snack credit may be redeemed for any one of the bakery items. Additionally, Guests may select one of their bakery items as a counter service dessert when redeeming the rest of the counter service meal at the adjacent Pollo Campero or Fresh-A-Peel locations due to the shared register area.

    What I was told is that they will not have meets until they are finished preparing lightning McQueen to start making his cameo appearance in lights motors action this month. They said mater would make his "roaming appearance" like he used to in the meantime, but I didn't see him This last weekend (course it was star wars wknd).

    But they are supposed to make a meet location by lights motors action. Maybe in that circle out front? I'll keep my eyes peeled

    Actually, the Cars area is still the same place, right Christine? It's boarded up now in prep for the new meet. If you are looking directly at were Lightning and Mater were, Phineas & Ferb are adjacent directly to the left.

    ETA:

    Radiator springs was where the current p&f meet is now. Which is where al's toy barn had buzz & woody many moons ago (wow- remember that?!)
    Just outside of mama melrose to the left.

    I think the boarded area closer to that premier theater and lights motors is where new radiator springs will be? Going by p&f greet cm's)

    I can corroborate this. The start date has been internally announced as June 19, 2011.

    Oh, see to me the P&F area is to the left of where Radiator Springs was/is/will be. I thought it was just a wall where the P&F area is now and they slapped up a nice backdrop and poof - a meet 'n greet.

    No matter though, it's all right there together.
