Anything WALL-E at Disney World?

Kids just saw WALL-E and loved it.

Much too early for the WALL-E ride, but is there anything at WDW thats WALL-E related?

An area has been prepared in the Animation Gallery at Hollywood Studios for Wall-E picture opportunities. Right now there is only a cardboard cutout but the real Wall-E is rumored to be there in a month or so.

That would be wonderful! I think my DD is officially obsessed. I hope they are still there in October when we're down.

OMG! That is so great! Loved the movie! We'll be there in September? So there is a character meet-n-greet in the works?

My kids would love to have a picture taken next to Wall-E. Hopefully it will work out for our upcoming trip!

From what i saw pics of, they took out the Ratatuille section in the animation gallary and made it WALL-E Themed, which makes sense, rotate it every year for the newest Pixar movie.

Is this next to Socerer Mickey and the Incredibles or does it replace one of those areas?

As far as merchindise goes, I saw a lot of cool WALL-E stuff around the parks too. Some stuff in EPCOT in Mission Space gift shop, in Animal Kingdom (Dino-Land of all places) and around. Some very neat shirts and hats, and the requisite plushies.

It's in its own little area, separate from Mickey and The Incredibles.

Thanx for the photos, Park Sleuth!

disneyshopping.com has some cute stuff in case any of you on line shoppers are interested. I got a couple of T's and some pins.
