Characterpalooza moved to Echo Lake

Here now so I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet. Today Characterpalooza was at Echo Lake. The cast member said that they've been doing this since sunday.

The cast members told us that they would either be there or echo lake. We tried streets of amer. first, but nothing. On the way out I glanced over by echo lake and saw a penguin and we went running!

Do they not do it in December anymore? They did it our last 2 December trips, the most recent one in 2010.

Where did you find a cast member who knew where they'd be? In the animation building?

They won't this December, since the first Fantasmic is scheduled everyday for 6:30p. Characterpalooza only happens when it is at 7:30p or later.

In 2010 there were still nights that they did not do Fantasmic. Characterpalooza only happens on nights there is no Fantasmic prior to 7:30. Since Fantasmic is every night at 6:30 in December.......... no Characterpalooza.........

I was at DHS today and I asked inside the Animation Building if they were doing Characterpalooza and all the cast member could tell me is that they hadn't done it inside the Animation building for a few days. I asked about Streets of America, but she had no idea where they would be.

We walked by SoA and there was nothing there, but we saw the crowd at Echo Lake and knew we were in the right place. I asked a character attendant and he said that the group had been at SoA earlier in the day, but I didn't ask what time. This was around 5:15, but I don't know how long they were there before I got there.

Surprise location? That would -- pardon my expression -- suck. We were hoping to hit this on our HS day, but not if they're gonna hide it.
