Minnie Mouse can be met in all four parks.
The revised soft opening date for Pete’s Silly Sideshow character meet tent is Thursday, October 4. This will feature Minnie & Daisy together from one line and Donald & Goofy together from another line. Chip n Dale will move to Frontierland and the characters in the tent will cease their other meets at Magic Kingdom.
Ariel’s Grotto soft opening date is tentatively set for October 12th. You’ll be able to see her in her fins, but Eric will not be present.
Cast Member previews for New Fantasyland are scheduled for October 22-November 2.
Annual passholder previews should be the two weekends following.
|The Disney Parks Blog just announced a confirmation of the rumors that I’ve been listing for a while that Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Minnie will relocate into Pete’s Silly Sideshow and even included some great artwork! The new costumes and meet areas look to be amazing!The all new character meet area will offer two separate lines that guests can enter. One line will lead you to Minnie Magnifique and Daisy the Fortuneteller, while the other line will offer meets with The Great Goofini and The Astounding Donaldo (was previously going to be called Amazing. You can still see the word Amazing in his artwork).Mickey Mouse will continue to offer meet and greets in the Town Square Theater.The obvious question would be: Where is Pete? It is his sideshow after all.Rumors point to mid to late October soft openings with actual public opening in November.|
|Here’s an out take from the Disney Parks Blog post:“Many of you have been asking for details on what’s happening in the big-top tents in the Storybook Circus area of New Fantasyland. I’m happy to share that one tent will house Pete’s Silly Sideshow character greetings, a place where guests can meet some of their favorite Disney circus stars who wait to show off their special talents.Once inside the tent, guests have two options: Join a line that leads to Minnie Magnifique (Minnie Mouse as a circus star) and Madame Daisy Fortuna (Daisy Duck as a fortuneteller), or head to see The Great Goofini (Goofy as a daredevil stunt pilot) and The Astounding Donaldo (Donald Duck as a snake charmer).”Here’s a list of the threads that I mentioned Pete’s Silly Sideshow.First mentioned: http://kennythepirate.com/2012/04/19/character-rumor-round-up/Detailed actual characters: http://kennythepirate.com/2012/04/27/new-fantasyland-opening-early/VIP costumes: http://kennythepirate.com/2012/07/28/rumor-petes-silly-sideshow-to-introduce-new-vip-costumes/|
