Maleficent Makes Surprise Meet and Greet Appearance at EPCOT

Hi everyone!

Maleficent made a surprise meet and greet appearance at EPCOT yesterday! I was walking around World Showcase yesterday when I noticed her at the International Gateway.

Here is our video from yesterday, followed by photos!

Maleficent explained that she was grateful that “the kingdom” had sent her an invitation, and that it was “in their best interest to avoid any awkward situations”.

The meet and greet was really a surprise – you never know if you might find a rare character (or more than one) at the park.

It is getting close to the (not-so) spooky season here at Walt Disney World – Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off on August 9th!

Walt Disney World says about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, “Villains continue to be a crowd pleaser, and guests can look forward to seeing some of their favorite bad guys (and girls) from the moment the party begins and throughout the evening.”

Malificent gave me a couple of more poses.

We look forward to seeing her soon at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Maleficent is always in “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” and in Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade. Disney also says that guests will “spot more Disney villains across the park than ever before”, so hopefully we’ll see Maleficent even more than usual at the party.
