Pete’s Silly Side Show with Donald, Daisy, Minnie & Goofy

At Pete’s Silly Sideshow, guests can meet iconic Disney characters such as Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Donald Duck.

Each character is dressed in a unique circus costume that reflects their personality.

Make sure you have your autograph book or other item you want signed because this is your chance to have all four sign at one time!

Donald, dressed as Astounding Donaldo the snake charmer, might try to charm you into saying he’s number one.

The queues for each character are usually shorter than other meet-and-greet locations in the park, making it a great option for those looking to meet some classic characters without having to wait in long lines.

Town Square Theater

I do wish that you could see Mickey here, but he is at the park entrance at the Town Square Theater where they are dressed to celebrate Disney’s 100th Anniversary!

Storybook Circus

If your kids love to meet & greet characters at Disney, be sure to take some time to stop by Pete’s Silly Sideshow meet & greet, in the Storybook Circus area of Fantasyland! It is what I consider to be the best place to meet characters at Magic Kingdom.
