Many times that a film from Walt Disney Animation Studios or Pixar makes its debut, you can meet characters from the film at various Disney Parks. After the release of Inside Out, Joy and Sadness became popular meet-and-greet characters. Since then, there have not been many new Pixar additions1. We have a major incoming character this year – Bo Peep from Toy Story 4.
Previously, Woody, Jessie, Buzz, and (sometimes) Bullseye were some of the Toy Story characters you could encounter at Disneyland or Walt Disney World. It is great to add another great female character to the list. Bo Peep will be dressed in her new get-up that she dons in the latest Toy Story film. She will be wearing blue and will have a cape, in a costume we will likely see her transition into somewhere within Toy Story 4.
The Disney Parks Blog had previously announced that Bo Peep would be seen walking around Toy Story Land within Disney World’s Hollywood Studios park and Pixar Pier in Disneyland’s California Adventure (in addition to “Disney Parks in Asia). Still, we got our first peek at a photo of the character from The Laughing Place on Twitter, which came across her on the Disney Wonder, one of Disney’s four cruise ships:

Additionally, the director of Toy Story 4, Josh Cooley, shared a picture of the character making a visit to Pixar last week:

Crowds will likely be lining up in droves to take pictures with Bo Peep. She should be quite the popular meet-and-greet.
