And just like that, he is hightailing it back off to the high seas and out of Animation Courtyard!


We are so sad that yesterday, Sunday 7th October 2018, was the last chance to have a meet and greet with Jake and the Neverland Pirates in the animation Courtyard in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Jake's area is curretly being revamped (pardon the pun) for Hollywood Studio's newest Character meet - Vampirina.

And while our kids will be thrilled to be able to meet their favourite schoolgirl vampire, they will also defintely miss their favourite member of the Neverland Pirates.

Back in July we reported that the Disney Junior Live on Stage show was changing to the Disney Junior Dance Party, and at the time Disney had no plans of removing Jake from the meet and greet stations.  We are now unsure if Jake will still continue to be apearing in the Hollywood and Vine character dining experience, but as Disney have not announced anything to the contrary, we assume (and hope) he is. 

Jake is one of our favourite characters to meet, so we are really sad about this character retirement.

But we are already looking forward to the new Vampirina meet and greet, we can see it being really popular!
