Despite the disappointment of Jessie still being absent from meet and greets at Walt Disney World, there’s been a lot of exciting news lately relating to the Toy Story franchise in the parks! Over the past several weeks, we’ve seen two new shows debut that give the characters a greater presence in entertainment offerings, and the construction for Toy Story Land is really starting to kick into gear…
For the past eight months, I’ve been putting up quite a fight for Jessie, whose meet and greet in the Magic Kingdom fell victim to apparent budget cuts last September. Besides a steady stream of social media posts, countless emails have been sent to Walt Disney World, by both myself and other fans; conversations have been shared via phone and in-person; and a petition and Facebook page have even been created, all in an attempt to get Jessie’s presence reinstated in the Disney Parks. But sadly, once again, another character change-up has only lengthened Jessie’s absence.
