Luxo Jr. entertains guests on the quarter of the hour all day (12:00, 12:15, 12:45 1:00 etc) with a three minute routine (photos above plus see full video below). We are told he does two different performances, “Medley” during the day and “Conductor” after dark featuring fiber-optic lights in the trees and along the Toy Story Mania show building.

This is not the first of WDI’s Living Character Initiative we have covered this year. Remy (below) from the Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille is now appearing at Epcot’s Les Chefs de France restaurant, fresh from his previous engagement at Rendez-Vous des Stars Restaurant in Walt Disney Studios Park, Disneyland Resort Paris (please click HERE for photos and videos of the Chef Remy character)!
