The character line up at Disney's Hollywood Studios will be undergoing some changes by the time May rolls around. We've heard of some interesting changes that are coming and dates of when to expect these changes.
- Lotso Huggin Bear will be replaced by Winnie the Pooh in the Magic of Disney Animation. Pooh will debut on May 16, 2011 in a meet n greet area that is expected be rather intricately themed. We've heard the meet area will look like Christopher Robin's room and feature some nice animated aspects. Expect a few days of downtime in the transition period due to deconstruction and construction. Lotso will no longer be a meetable character but will remain in the Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun! parade.
- April 8th is the last day for Lightning McQueen....as we know him. After April 8th, Lightning will disappear while Tow Mater remains for another 10 days. After that period, the entire Cars meet area will go up behind a construction wall while the area is rethemed for Cars 2. After the meet area reopens, we will see a new character backdrop as well as a new look to Lightning McQueen along with Tow Mater returning. The new Cars 2 meet area will reopen May 16, 2011.
- The new Phineas and Ferb meet-n-greet we've heard so much about will debut, yes, on May 16, 2011.
