A Fastpass to Meet Mickey Mouse?!

Sounds too good to be true, but it's not!  No longer will you have to wait in a LONG line to meet Mickey!  I know we have been many times and the line for Mickey is always so long.  We never stand in it, we just see Mickey at a character meal.  But to be able to have a Fastpass and meet him would be so fun for the kids...and yes me too!!  :-)

Later this spring, face-to-face meetings with Mickey Mouse will move into a permanent new location at Town Square Theater, located inside the current Exposition Hall area at the entrance of Magic Kingdom® Park.
You will be able to obtain a Disney's FASTPASS® ticket specifying a one-hour window when you can return to see the popular character for hugs, photos and autographs -- without waiting in the standby queue. This marks the first time the complimentary, computerized service has been utilized for a character meet-and-greet at any Disney Park.

Inspired by animated shorts such as The Nifty Nineties and Mickey's Grand Opera, this building befits Mickey's stardom -- with a grand-Victorian-theater elevation, including a marquee that glistens with gold-leaf trim and sparkles with lights. Inside, there's a mosaic floor, lush curtains with gold rope tie-backs and polished-brass chandeliers.

Imagineers are creating new elements and surprises for you, including an interactive queue -- with an extra touch of Disney magic -- and highly themed retail shops.

Ohhhh.....I cannot wait until September!!!


  1. Oh my gosh ... how EXCITING.... that is precisely the reason we didnt get to meet mickey last trip with our toddler! the line was just WAY too long for him to patiently wait and not freak out! SO excited about this! thanks for sharing

  2. It is so great!! And even if you have to wait if they make the queue intereactive it will make waiting that much easier!! Thanks for the comment! :-)

  3. I've got to take our kids to Disney when we get back to America. Glad I've found your blog!

    We were talking on Twitter a few days ago about buying your domain and self hosting.

    I noticed you arent using your domain name yet.

    One of your questions was how hard it is to transfer to was SO EASY. Wordpress has a little plug in and it transferred EVERY Single thing over including comments and pictures. then I installed another plug in that told me if I had any dead links and I just unlinked those.


    It was so worth it to me. Blogging is so much more fun now. I mean that.

    Would be happy to help answer any more questions you have. Don't be shy.
