He’s got red pants, yellow shoes, and big black ears. That’s right you guessed it, Mickey Mouse the star of Walt Disney World. Although you will find him dressed different in all these locations, he will no doubt be wearing the same big smile. No Disney vacation is compete without a meet and greet with this guy! Here are the top 10 places to meet Mickey at Disney World.
10. Adventure Outpost at Animal Kingdom
On Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom you will find a safari clad Mickey Mouse. This meet and greet is unique because it is one of the few where Minnie joins him too. Lines can be long but Fastpass+ can be used here. You may appreciate the air conditioned wait in the Florida heat!
9. Ohana Breakfast at the Polynesian Resort
Anyone who has dined at this character experience is sure to return on their next trip. The food is delicious (and bottomless I might add) and you get to meet Mickey in his Hawaiian shirt! Really what else could you ask for? Pluto, Lilo and Stitch also make an appearance and close it up with a grand finale conga line. I’ve never spoken to one person who didn’t enjoy the Ohana Breakfast. Remember, Mickey only joins for breakfast!
8. Temporary Location in Epcot
Epcot’s Character Spot has been temporarily relocated for the transformation of Future World. You’ll find Mickey hanging out in the former Innoventions building on the way to The Seas with Nemo and Friends.
7. Hollywood & Vine at Hollywood Studios
I’m throwing this character dining experience on my list for the most unique Mickey find. You will find an ever changing Mickey meet and greet at Hollywood & Vine. From Jedi Mickey to a festive holiday Mickey at Christmas time, you never know what you will find. It is best to check the official Disney website for the offerings during your trip.
6. Garden Grill at Epcot
Mickey joins Chip ‘N’ Dale for this classic Disney character dining experience. We love his flannel shirt and cute overalls! Located in Epcot Future World, reservations are accepted 180 days in advance.
5. Sorcerer Mickey at Hollywood Studios
Meet the star of Fantasia, magical sorcerer Mickey at Mickey and Minnie’s Red Carpet Dreams at Hollywood Studios. Head over to Commissary Lane and walk to Red Carpet first to the lovely Minnie Mouse, followed by Sorcerer Mickey!
4. Tusker House at Animal Kingdom
The character breakfast at Tusker House will gain you early entry to the park and a deliciously unique meal. Meet Mickey and his safari pals like Donald & Daisy Duck. This is a very popular meal so book early!
3. Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Meet all five of the most loved characters at Chef Mickey’s character meal. Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald (the chef’s) join guests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Located at Disney’s Contemporary resort, this meal is popular because it is easily accessible from the parks by monorail. It books up fast so make sure to try to snag your reservation 180 days in advance.
2. Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort
As if the beautiful rooftop dining at Topolino’s Terrace in Disney’s Riviera Resort isn’t wonderful enough, guests dining during breakfast have a chance to see Mickey and friends (Minnie, Donald, and Daisy) in their artistic outfits! Mickey is dressed in his painting outfit for this excellent dining and photo op.
1. Town Square Theater at Magic Kingdom
My favorite Mickey meet and greet has to be at Town Square Theater on Main Street U.S.A. Mickey is here in his Magician outfit. It’s a great place to visit Mickey! Fastpass+ is available for this meet and greet.
