The 6-foot-tall Luxo Jr. animatronic that debuted in late June at Disney's Hollywood Studios (more here) apparently disappeared several weeks ago. The hopping desk lamp -- and Pixar mascot -- had been making occasional appearances on a ledge in the Pixar Place section of the park.

Disney confirmed today that the it has taken Luxo down for some tweaking, saying the initial appearances were only a preview phase. The resort says Luxo will be back soon, although it would not give a timeframe.

As long as he's back by my birthday trip. I'd hate to miss seeing him.

Isn't that what Disney has been saying since he disappeared?

Waitaminute.


"Soon"? Doesn't that mean he's already back?


Welcome back, Luxo!

:P

I can't wait to see the little guy in person. We keep going to DHS in hopes of catching a glimpse to no avail....

I asked a CM friend that works on TSMM and she said that it'll be about 2 weeks, an imagineer from California is coming to do the tweaking. I've been waiting to see him as well.

Welcome back, Luxo!

:P Not a WDW Today "soon".

I do know that Luxo has a lot of sensitive sensors on him to ensure he isn't out when it rains, but I hope they bring him back very soon.

No sign of him today, yet I did not expect to see him, but my daughter was hoping.

I've been checking up on him the last couple of days I was in the park, but every time someone told me he was still out 'sick'.
I didn't get to see him on my last trip so i'll have to wait till the next time I'm in WDW again.

THAT would be a feat of animatronics that would put Mr. Potatohead's ear trick to SHAME!
