Mickey Mouse moves into his new home at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom
Theme Park Insider reader TH Creative sent along some photos from the newly opened Town Square Theater meet n' greet
at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
The Town Square Theater, which reopened yesterday, is Mickey Mouse's new home at the Magic Kingdom, following the closure of Mickey's Toontown Fair earlier this year. You probably should try to get a FastPass for this one, but when you arrive, you'll see more than just the Big Guy - like at his old Toontown digs, you'll get to see his dressing room, and a few interactive surprises, too.
Why does Disney bother theming their character greeting areas? It seems like a waste of space and money to me. Economically, they would be better off using that space for retail or food service and have the characters out on the street thru out the park.
It provides a nice air conditioned building with stuff to do while you're waiting in line. Walking around in the hot park during June and July months is hard enough, I can't imagine wearing a suit in it. Overall it improves the atmosphere of the meet and greets for the cast members inside the suit as well as the guests. If I had kids I would be much more willing to wait inside that building than to stand outside on the street...
We go to Walt Disney World almost every year and I am looking forward to taking my grandson to see Mickey in his new location. It's worth the wait for my wife and I to be able see the expression on my grandson's face when he gets to meet Mickey.
If Disney runs out of space to sell overpriced crap, they´ll build more space to sell overpriced crap. No conflict there with space for attractions.
Can't wait to visit this. Especialy because they have a fastpass. No more having to wait in long lines just to reiceve a autograph from the big man. CAN'T WAIT!!!
