Where to Meet Your Favourite Disney Pals at Walt Disney World
We've got the low down on the best places to meet all your favourite classic Disney characters...

Mickey and Minnie Mouse



If you’re wondering where to meet Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World, you won’t be alone! Recently voted by our customers as their favourite Orlando theme park character, Mickey is in hot demand by WDW visitors.

At Magic Kingdom: If you’re looking to meet Mickey and Minnie at The Magic Kingdom Park, they’ll be waiting inside Town Square Theatre, where you’ll get to go backstage and get a hug off your favourite characters themselves! You can either use one of your FastPass reservations to book your slot, or go during the Main Street Electrical Parade, where wait times will be much shorter. Minnie also features in Pete’s Silly Sideshow at MK alongside plenty more of your favourites.

At Epcot: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy are always happy to welcome visitors to Future World at Epcot. You’ll get to meet all these amazing characters at once, so if you’re short on time this is a great way to make sure you see everyone.

At Animal Kingdom: If you want to see Mickey and Minnie out of their usual habitat, The Animal Kingdom is the perfect place to spot them! At Adventurer’s Outpost, they’ll be dressed up in their finest safari gear, ready to greet guests with a big hug and a wave. Don’t forget your autograph book!

At Hollywood Studios: When he’s not starring in the hugely popular Fantasmic! Show, Mickey’s greeting people in his own private area at the back of the building. Mickey wakes up at 10, so try to get there early!

Donald and Daisy

Another one of our favourite couples, Donald and Daisy Duck, are also hot favourites for character meet and greets. Don’t worry though, with our help, you can make sure you don’t miss ‘em!

At Magic Kingdom: Donald and Daisy join Minnie and co at Pete’s Silly Sideshow, where you have the chance to enjoy the hilarious show and meet the characters after!

At Epcot: Donald is the star of the show at his very own meet and greet at the Mexican pavilion in the world showcase. Meet ‘El Pato Donald’  in his colourful sombrero at the base of an Aztec pyramid!

At Animal Kingdom: Discover Donald in Dinoland USA at the site of an exciting prehistoric dig, where he has just uncovered a legendary Hadrosaur. Donald will be happy to show you the sights, as well as stop for a hug and an autograph of course!

At Hollywood Studios: Meet your favourite Disney stars near Center Stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where all the top celebs are happy to sign autographs and greet their fans! Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto and more will be there, so make sure you have plenty of space for autographs.

Goofy and Pluto



Goofy makes an appearance at Pete’s Silly Sideshow along with pals Minnie, Daisy and Donald! Both Goofy and Pluto can also be found at Future World in Epcot, joining the meet and greet with Mickey, Minnie and Donald and giving out plenty of hugs. On both Center Stage and DinoLand USA at Hollywood Studios, Goofy and Pluto hold court, with plenty of opportunities for an autograph.

Chip ‘n’ Dale



You can meet Chip ‘n’ Dale in their natural habitat down by the Rivers of America at Magic Kingdom. Dressed up in all their Wild West gear, they’ve never looked cuter! In the Animal Kingdom, they’re waiting for you down at Rafiki’s Planet Watch to spread the words about conservation and take some photos.

Winnie the Pooh and Friends


Tigger and Winnie the Pooh himself would be delighted to welcome you to the Hundred Acre Wood in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. The friendliest bear in the world and his springy pal are on hand for hugs, photos and autographs. If you’re at Epcot, head to the United Kingdom section of the World Showcase to meet these cute fellas!
