They should move Mickey & Minnie's house to

I think they should rebuild Mickey & Minnie's house in Epcot !!!

Epcot NEEDS more for young kids and families.....

PS: New/more rides at Epcot would be great too....

UPDATE EPCOT

The houses were torn down and no longer exist.

And Epcot was designed as a "Permanent World's Fair" showcasing industry and countries.

The houses were leveled to rubble, so there's nothing to move.

But, I could see them rebuilding the houses at DHS.

FYI OP in case you didn't know, Mickey and Minnie meet in Epcot for M&Gs at Character Spot (along with Donald, Daisy (I think), Goofy, and Pluto).

OP, you're going to need a dustpan and some glue.

And even if the question about their houses wasn't moot, they wouldn't fit in anywhere with the theming in either Future World or World Showcase. Not even sure where they would fit at DHS. It's not like you can't still meet them- they're available for meet n greets/character meals in multiple locations.

As many have have posted, EPCOT was never designed to be a 'Disney' themed park as it was to educate so Mickeys house wouldn't fit into the ethos of the park. It would be better suited at Hollywood Studios that's if,they hadn't bulldozed it.

No they shouldn't! (if they could)

Epcot already has been Disneyed to much with characters for my taste as it is, No more. That stuff should be left to MK where it belongs.

Epcot needs to be updated in general. But no mickey and minnies houses would not fit anywhere.

Surely there's enough? Characters, shows, colouring.

I disagree, they should have put it in my backyard!

Mickey can move to Canada and enjoy the snow here in Nova Scotia.
