Yesterday the Big Hero 6 meet & greet with Hiro and Baymax opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Kristen and I went down this morning to meet them. They did awesome! Baymax can move and blink, and he's a huge inflatable! While he doesn't talk, Hiro actually does a very good job helping with the interaction between Baymax and the guests.

The area where they put this is where Wreck-It Ralph used to be (they are being featured in parades now), and if you've seen the movie, the whole area has awesome props and stuff from the film. (You really should go see it, it's awesome!)

Here's some photos and video:

The Big Hero 6 meet & greet area is themed to Hiro's robotics lab that is housed in his garage in the film.

This is Baymax's containment and charging unit along with his rocket fist.

Hiro's bot fighting bot that always seems to get him in a bit of trouble! =)

Kristen is all ready to go meet Baymax & Hiro!

The queue area has giant posters of all the characters. There's Honey Lemon.

Here's Fred in his "Fredzilla" suit! (I think that's what they call him)

Wasabi and his laser blades!

15 minutes before the meet & greet opened, the entire queue was totally full! Big Hero 6 has only been out one day and already the meet & greet is getting a lot of attention!

They were even passing our special Big Hero 6 Photo Pass cards!

Kristen LOVED getting to meet Baymax & Hiro!
bh6_meet_11.jpg
This was a cute touch with Hiro showed Baymax the "mini Baymax" and suggested maybe Wasabi used his shrinking ray on him!
bh6_meet_12.jpg
Hiro was very impressed with Kristen's Honey Lemon/Go Go shirt. When he said "That's a sick shirt", it got Baymax's attention! =) (You'll have to see the movie!)

Oh, yeah, did we mention that Baymax can blink?

Great job, guys! Really loved this character meet & greet!

Here's another overview of what the area looks like.

And here you can see where it's placed in the Animation building at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Of course on our way our, we had to go get the new Baymax Magic Bands!

And on the way home, Kristen made sure Baymax was secure. "Seatbelts save lives!"

I'm impressed with the Baymax costume! The blinking was very smooth looking almost like an animation.

I am really going to have to see this move soon.

Next Halloween the world will have to play the "Drink When you See a ......." game with Baymax instead of Elsa.

This meet and greet is awesome, I don't know if my 2 year old will sit through a movie yet or not but I might have to give Big Hero 6 a shot with her.

I would love to see the Baymax equivalent of this Minion costume!



It amazes me the reviews this movie has gotten and I'm very interested in seeing it now. Before hand with the trailers I've seen I thought "Damn this movie is gonna suck".

I've gone pantless!

These character costumes have really come a long way since, for example, this:

It's amazing how much personality a big inflatable that doesn't talk can have.

I would think a 4 and 5 year old would be ok. 2 might be pushing it yet.

Cool meet and greet! Just saw the movie today. You know a movie is good when the entire theater bursts into applause as it ends. :)
I love Disney parks and RMCs. Bay Area

I did the Animators Preview screening about 3 weeks ago up in San Francisco. IMHO I enjoyed the film very much. It realy is a well done family film. I think 4 & 5 might be a bit young, unless your kids have great attention spans. I would say the film is much more geared toward 8-14 year old boys and girls as well as most of the pop cultural set. I know my kids will love it. =)
