Surprise characters have been meeting guests at the flagpole on Main Street USA this year as part of Mickey and Minnie's Surprise Celebration, including Nick and Judy from Zootopia,  Remy and Emile from Ratatouille, and Robin Hood and Friar Tuck from Robin Hood. However, as this celebration draws to a close, this special limited-time offering will be coming to a close as well on September 30, 2019. 

5. Minnie to leave Main Street USA meet and greet

Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Magic Kingdom, will officially come to an end on September 30, which means guests only have a few more weeks to experience the Mickey and Minnie surprise celebration meet and greet inside Town Square Theater. After this date, this space will go back to being a Mickey-only meet and greet, and Minnie Mouse will return to Fantasyland's Toontown Fair.

6. Darth Vader returns to Star Wars Launch Bay

On August 29, the same day next month that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens Disney will be closing the Kylo Ren character meet and greet at the Star Wars Launch Bay, presumably due to Kylo Ren's presence inside this new land. Kylo Ren will then be replaced at the Star Wars Launch Bay by original trilogy villain Darth Vader.
