We took the time to stop and smell the roses at EPCOT’S Cast Member Previews and noticed something joyous on our way!
Disney has been getting creative with character meet and greets lately. We’ve seen Timon and Rafiki on a riverboat in Animal Kingdom and Gaston riding a real horse in Magic Kingdom. NOTHING beats the cheerful meeting we encountered today!
As we made our way to Mexico to pick up an Avacado Margarita we were stopped in our tracks by the brightest bit of sunshine this side of World Showcase! Joy, the happy little sprite-like character from Inside Out, was skipping heartily through a FIELD.
We were inspired by her childlike abandonment and had to go visit her. She stopped behind a fence to create some space between her and the guests. She was still close enough to look her best for a photo!
The only thing that would have made this better is if Sadness was trailing behind her gloomily picking flowers and complaining about the sun.
Joy is usually located at the Imagination! Pavilion and now she gets to frolic in fields! We have to admit, we’re a little jealous! We will continue to keep our eyes out for new character experiences at Disney World!
