Disney to offer first FastPasses for a character meet and greet
Written by Robert Niles
Walt Disney World today announced that it will offer FastPass reservation times to meet Mickey Mouse in his new home at the Town Square Theater in the Magic Kingdom.Tweet
Mickey got "evicted" earlier this month when Disney closed his old home in Toontown Fair, to make room for the Fantasyland expansion. Instead of walking through a country home, guests visiting Mickey in Town Square will proceed through a Victorian-style theater, better keeping with the Main Street USA turn-of-the-20th-century theme.
From the Disney press release:
Guests arrive at a building befitting Mickey Mouse'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 Magic Kingdom guests, including an interactive queue -- with an extra touch of Disney magic -- and highly themed retail shops.
The Town Square theater also will host the Disney princesses while their new meet-and-greet location is under construction in Fantasyland.
