    Default MK Character Changes Coming in April

    Due to Merida from 'Brave' occupying Fairytale Garden starting mid-May, Rapunzel will be moving to the Adventureland Veranda porch. The big news though is that Flynn Rider is returning to appear with her throughout the summer! They will begin making appearances on April 15.

    And to make room for Rapunzel and Flynn, Ariel and Eric will be moving to the glass gazebo along the side of the Adventureland Veranda.

    I'm not totally sure the location of this, so hopefully one of our character experts will be along very soon with the exactly details.

    I'm not 100% positive, however I'm pretty sure I know where Ariel and Eric are going (on the other side of the Dole Whip location). Aladdin and Jasmine used to meet there years ago

    Ariel was meeting there when the Advland bridge was being built too. Does this mean another 6 months of Pooh at Animation(ugh)?

    I've never paid attention before because my kids are just getting old enough to care about characters. Is it odd to feature a new character like Merida before the movie is out? My kids don't know who she is yet.

    Just to update you all, Rapunzel is now moving to Town Square and not Adventureland as originally planned... Flynn Rider is now NOT going to appear with her... Why the change, I don't know... The move takes place in 10 days...
    Son of Jor-El.. Kneel before Zod...

    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    Oh, and Lotso as well. He was meeting for quite a while before everyone knew he is evil!

    Really? Flynn is not coming back? I can't imagine what brought this about.

    Nope, Flynn isn't coming back, confirmed by Disney Parks Blog... They are only appearing together during the afternoon parade... Only Rapunzel will be doing meet and greets...

    They updated the previous post:

    To prepare for Merida’s arrival, Rapunzel will be moving from Fairytale Garden April 15, to the Town Square Courtyard (adjacent to City Hall) where she will continue to greet her loyal fans and subjects.

    Rapunzel has started at her new meet and greet area in Town Square, without Flynn... And her wait times were pushing 3 HOURS...
