In late May, the new Phineas and Ferb meet-and -play and the Winnie the Pooh meet-and-greet opened. I was able to check out these new meet-and-greets recently.
Phineas and Ferb Meet-and-Play
The Phineas and Ferb meet-and-play is located near Mama Melrose's and the exit to the Muppet Vision 3D.
The concept of the meet-and-play is that Phineas and Ferb are making a movie called "We're Making a Movie- the Movie." The director comes out just before the meet-and-play begins and says that they need some more crowd shots for the movie. He asked that everyone act really excited and got the "shots" he needed.
When Phineas and Ferb come out to the set, they play their guitars for a minute.
Once the director is sure he's gotten the scene he wanted, he announces that Phineas and Ferb have a little bit of time between scenes and can meet some of their fans. The crowd was, naturally, very happy about this news.
Winnie the Pooh Meet-and-Greet
The new Winnie the Pooh meet-and-greet is located in the Magic of Disney Animation building. It's in the same spot where Lots-O' Huggin' Bear was.
The queue is set up to resemble pages from a storybook.
Poor Piglet is stuck in a beehive near Pooh Bear. Every so often, the hive shakes and Piglet tries to escape and you can hear the bees buzzing around him.
There's a directional sign to help you navigate the Hundred Acre Wood.
Pooh's backdrop is absolutely charming. It's straight out of the storybooks. For me, it was like watching my childhood come to life.
