    Hi! I am wondering about the Character Spot at Epcot- the one that the Fast Pass is for- Is it just the 4 main characters, or are Joy, Sadness, and Baymax in the area where you use the Fast Pass? Or are they in a separate area where it is standby only?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sara!

    The Epcot Character Spot is a great place to meet Mickey and his friends all in the same place! I love that this location permits the use of FastPass+! At the expanded Epcot Character Spot, you can currently meet with Joy and Sadness (same queue) and Baymax (separate queue) however, as you mentioned, FastPass+ is not available for this section and it is standby only. I have found that arriving at the standby only queue for Joy and Sadness right at Epcot’s opening will allow for a short waiting period. 

    While you’re in the area, make sure to check out my family’s favorite “hidden gem”: Flavors of Club Cool at Epcot where you can sample sodas from around the world! If you haven’t tried Beverly yet, I suggest you capture a video or at least some photographic evidence of your reaction. My daughter’s reaction was THE BEST: “Oh, it’s good… WAIT… no, it’s not!”. I have, however, heard that some people do in fact enjoy the taste! 

    One of the reasons that Epcot is my preferred Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park is that not only can you meet your favorite Disney Characters but you get to experience the culture of the entire world!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation and please come and visit us again soon!
