    In recent months I've seen Eeyore outside of Pooh's Playful spot along with Piglet(rare) they were switching off with Pooh and Tigger.

    Thanks. Don't mind at all. I have been working with LA weight loss and it took about six months. I've been on hiatus because of vacation and 2 surgeries but will be back with a vengence at the end of the month.

    Can you find any Meet the Robinsons characters anymore since Remy and Emile took their place at the Animation Studios?

    bradk thanks for the updated info. WE are going in a couple of weeks so this list helps. Have you or anyone else seen chip and dale in spacesuits in MK in Tomorrowland? I remember reading and seeing pics of this last year. My DS loves Chip and Dale. I know they are not in Chef Mickey's no more and it's going to be sad going there to eat and they won't be there:sad2:

    if they do, it's not on a consistent regular basis, but i don't think so.

    you're guaranteed to see them at the character spot in epcot. they should also be around the mgm hat when those greets are going on (at least in the morning) and i imagine they'd be in the toontown hall of fame but not sure about that either. i have seen them at ropedrop for toontown though

    bradk ~ great list.

    For Snow White and Dopey in Epcot - are they not still sometimes on the walkway to the International Gateway? I thought they did half of their time in Germany, and half over by the gateway.

    I've never seen them at the gateway. I've seen random characters at the gateway, Chip, Dale, Stitch, Penguin, and a few others.
