It was reported earlier this week that Epcot's Character Spot meet and greet location would be closing for a refurbishment, and now this has been confirmed by Disney.

The location closes on October 21, 2012, and will remain closed until February 2013. During the closure Mickey, Minnie and Pluto will appear in the former Segway training room nearest to the Fountain View Ice Cream, and will have the same operating hours as Character Spot. Goofy will be appearing at the main entrance near Spaceship Earth, and you can see Donald at his normal location in Mexico.

When the attraction reopens in February it will feature meet and greets with Mickey, Minnie and Pluto.
