Change is inevitable in Disney World.
And there is a LOT of change going on right now. One ride has permanently closed to be reimagined as a new ride, another NEW ride has opened, new restaurants are on the way, and more. As of today, we noticed ANOTHER change happening: a certain character meet and greet has closed.
We went to check out the Monsters, Inc. meet and greet area at Walt Disney Presents in Disney’s Hollywood Studios where visitors can normally meet Sulley, and the location was closed. A Cast Member confirmed it was now closed to make way for a new character.
It was also confirmed that the area was being transformed to become a meeting spot for the live-action version of Ariel! That new meet and greet will open sometime this summer.
However, don’t worry. Sulley isn’t gone forever. He’ll be relocated over to a reimagined Pixar Place, which will be reopening soon. You’ll also be able to meet other characters in that area, including Edna Mode, Mr. and Mrs. Incredible, Frozone, and more.
So Sulley is only gone for a little while until Pixar Place reopens. We’re keeping an eye out for that reopening, too, so we’ll keep you updated! In the meantime, we’re looking to meet the live-action Ariel when she takes over Sulley’s old space (and we’ll let you know when she’s available for meet and greets, too). So stay tuned to DFB for more!
