Just like a ride or a show, Disney’s walk around characters have soft openings where the character and their host get used to being in the park and interacting with guests. Princess Merida from Pixar’s Brave was recently spotted doing her thing near the International Gateway in EPCOT’s World Showcase.
I really love the character. Haven’t seem the film yet, obviously. But from the trailers it seems like they captured her well. My only beef is that she’s a bit too old compared to the young teen Merida appears to be in the movie. But I guess you have to meet certain realities when you’re in the park.

Princess Merida will eventually have a more themed meet and greet area in the Magic Kingdom.
