Baymax and Hiro

I was thinking about it today. I think the only reason we've had to say goodbye to Hiro and Baymax because Disney didn't have anywhere put them when they decided that they were going to close the Magic of Disney Animation. They can't go outside anywhere and really there aren't any good inside places to put them. So what if it's in the works to bring them back in a different location that will be better suited for them? All the way up until they closed, they had really long lines. The same happened with Anna and Elsa. They were supposed to be a temporary meet and greet (which is why they put in Epcot at first) then the lines grew, grew and grew some more until the Norway pavilion couldn't hold the line anymore which is why they were moved over to Princess Fairytale until they could further provide a better spot for them.

Basically my theory is that the Magic of Disney Animation was a temporary spot for them until they saw how well the meet and greet would do then possibly move them somewhere else.

What do you guys think?

I hope you're right. That was a really popular meet and greet.

These decisions are beyond our grasp. If the franchise isn't moving merchandise or Disney doesn't have a sequel or TV show to push, they may be toast. Then again, they may not be.

I hope they find a permanent home for them. I was so excited to do a meet and greet with them in October.

I thought it was because they were going to be replaced with Joy and Sadness from Inside Out

There were rumors flying around about them getting moved to Innoventions.

Nope. Disney closed down the whole building.

Well, they had Wreck It Ralph and Vanellope do meet and greets in the Studios for a few years after its 2012 movie release only to have Baymax and Hiro take over the exact same spot in 2014. So I would think and hope that they would provide another space for Hiro and Baymax.

But..over at Disneyland, they only had Baymax and Hiro do meet and greet for only a couple of months and they left for good back in January, I believe.

I'm not exactly sure where they could put those two. The former Tomorrowland Arcade spot? Or somewhere in Epcot?

I'm not really sure because real estate in Studios is getting slim at this point. Rumors were flying around about them moving to Innoventions at Epcot. To me it just doesn't add up that they would take a away popular characters that consistently have long lines. Anna and Elsa were a temporary meet and greet until it was a five hour wait to meet them. Same thing with Big Hero 6, the last day they were available for meet and greets, they were at a 3-4 hour wait all day.
