    Could Nick and Judy be up and running for a M&G at Epcot (or anywhere in WDW) by the Spring Break peak crowds next month? Or is that too soon?

    All I was told that it would be happening soon, @Waters Back Side. No date was given. Anyone else here have further insight as to when this might happen?

    And it seems us and @dcharacternews weren't the only ones sharing the news of this rumor. In January, a Brazilian website got the word out as well. Translated article text is as follows:

    I'm guessing the mysterious character is either Wreck it Ralph, or Scrooge McDuck

    I really hope this happens- I think Nick and Judy just might be my favorite Disney characters at the moment, and should definitely have won Best Picture of 2016 IMHO.

    I waited almost an hour to meet them at the MVMCP, and it was well worth it. Some of the most engaging and interactive character encounters I've ever been witness to. Everyone in line was "ooh"ing and "ahh"ing and all left with big smiles.

    Actually, I've heard otherwise. @dcharacternews on Twitter and a number of other users here on the forums have said that this is likely going to happen.

    Same here! But for now, I feel it is like Squidward looking out the window while Patrick & Spongebob play outside.[​IMG]

    I went to MVMCP on 12/16, and meet them as well. When I heard they would be meeting at MVMCP, I knew I couldn't resist going! They were amazing - LOVED THEM! And you know what, if I ever had the chance to, I'd do it again!

    That account user also references Tradport as a current operation, it closed 5+ years ago. While some of the information s/he posts is correct, some is incorrect. You'll notice that the only reports about Nick/Judy are from unconfirmed sources... there's a reason for that.

    Um, same person said we'd be getting a Moana M&G. So he can be trusted to an extent.

    And also can anyone OTHER than @berlioz70 confirm whether Trade Port is still open or no?

    Exactly! He said Moana would be coming to the parks, gave us a few heads up about announcements, and a whole lot more!

    New Information since last update - changed location after having seen photos of Baymax's queue where there are construction walls currently (as of the time of this writing). Anyone who meets Baymax (and/or Joy & Sadness) should note the grey construction walls in his queue, that's where Nick & Judy could be meeting!

    I think this is going to be the rumored "third change!"
    http://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/...m-from-hollywood-studios.925448/#post-7629507
    Basically what this means is that this could be a "two-for-one-for-two" sorta deal (Nick & Judy moving into Epcot Character Spot from Move It Shake It, with Moana moving from Hollywood Studios to Magic Kingdom). I have another suspicion that Baymax's days at Epcot are going to be numbered.... Keep abreast, further details will be provided for both this rumor and the third change as soon as it becomes available.
