Also, unlike an attraction, I can't imagine anything "going wrong" during the previews/soft opens that would make them need to close it before the grand opening (e.g. Donald's not going to spontaneously combust). So it seems a safe bet that it's open for good.

The photos and characters are soo cute! Thanks so much for sharing! I missed it by a few days and will look forward to going back in January. We'll definitely carve some time out for this!

I'd there any place I can meet Donald in his 'normal' clothes? This was my main goal for this trip, I even have a Disneybound outfit specifically prepared.

Character Spot in Epcot is your best bet.

I read somewhere in the last month or so that Donald would leave Character Spot and be replaced by Daisy. Not sure if true or not or if so, when. Another one for the character experts on here....

Based on the countdown in your signature, I'm afraid traditional Donald will not be out.

Yes, Donald will be leaving; No, Daisy is not replacing him.

That's too bad. Not that it will ruin my trip or anything but I was looking forward to meet him with my cute sailor outfit.

It's so weird though, shouldn't Disney have ONE place where you can meet the characters in their original outfits?

I admit, I'm not fond of his magician/clown outfit. But it's Donald, I won't be able to pass a photo with him, even if they decide to finally give him some pants!

Just wondering if Epcot is getting any new characters. They seem to taking quite a few hits with Marie, the Beast and Donald all departing.
