Pete’s Silly Sideshow soft opening and Magic Kingdom character changes

Rumor has it that Pete’s Silly Sideshow will be open for day guests tomorrow, and be open for MNSSHP guests beginning with Thursday, October 4th’s party and continuing through the run of MNSSHP.  No word on MVMCP yet. Daisy, Minnie, Donald and Goofy will use their Disney magic and also be found in their regular MNSSHP meet locations.

As of the moment, when Pete’s Silly Sideshow opens, Guest Assistance Cards will not be accepted to bypass the line, only Make A Wish kids will be allowed to bypass the main queue.  Fastpass is not said to be offered at this time.

While the queue line is divided into male (Donald and Goofy) and female (Daisy and Minnie) characters, one will still be able to see the other characters within the room, but will only be able to meet them if they exit and re-queue for the other characters.

Pete’s tent is scheduled for open to close hours but will not be offered for Extra Magic Hours.

Minnie Mouse’s last day in Town Square Theater is said to be today, October 3rd.  Daisy will no longer meet in Town Square, Donald will no longer meet in Frontierland and Goofy will no longer meet in Adventureland after today.

Chip n Dale are scheduled to take over Donald’s spot in Frontierland tomorrow as well.  Marie took over at the flag pole on September 30.
