What happens when you combine the magic of meeting Mickey Mouse in person with Disney World's FastPass+ program? You get a great way to meet your favorite Disney character without waiting in line!

Guests visiting the Magic Kingdom theme park can stop by Mickey's new greeting spot, the Town Square Theater, located just to the right of the railway station as you enter the park.

Not only will visitors get a chance to meet Mickey Mouse in person (and tour his dressing room "behind the scenes"), but they won't have to wait in a long line to do so.

Simply visit the FastPass+ machine located next to the theater or make a FastPass+ reservation online through your My Disney Experience, then come back at the appointed time.

Where Are the Princesses?

If you visited Disney World during the 2011-13 Fantasyland expansion, you may remember that Disney princess fans could meet and greet their favorite royal at this location. The now completed expansion provides a new way to meet and greet your favorite Disney princesses too. It's a must for every little princess to visit Princess Fairytale Hall, where they can personally chat up their favorite royal, get an autograph and take a picture for a lasting memory.
