Pete’s Silly Sideshow Rumors Confirmed!

The Disney Parks Blog just announced a confirmation of the rumors that I’ve been listing for a while  that Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Minnie will relocate into Pete’s Silly Sideshow and even included some great artwork!  The new costumes and meet areas look to be amazing!The all new character meet area will offer two separate lines that guests can enter.  One line will lead you to Minnie Magnifique and Daisy the Fortuneteller, while the other line will offer meets with The Great Goofini and The Astounding Donaldo (was previously going to be called Amazing.  You can still see the word Amazing in his artwork).Mickey Mouse will continue to offer meet and greets in the Town Square Theater.The obvious question would be:  Where is Pete?  It is his sideshow after all.Rumors point to mid to late October soft openings with actual public opening in November.

Meet Minnie Magnifique!

Meet Daisy the Gypsy Fortuneteller

Meet The Great Goofini – I love the nod to Evel Knievel!

Meet The Astounding Donaldo – watch out for the snakes though! (Notice it still states Amazing in the title)

Here’s an out take from the Disney Parks Blog post:“Many of you have been asking for details on what’s happening in the big-top tents in the Storybook Circus area of New Fantasyland. I’m happy to share that one tent will house Pete’s Silly Sideshow character greetings, a place where guests can meet some of their favorite Disney circus stars who wait to show off their special talents.Once inside the tent, guests have two options: Join a line that leads to Minnie Magnifique (Minnie Mouse as a circus star) and Madame Daisy Fortuna (Daisy Duck as a fortuneteller), or head to see The Great Goofini (Goofy as a daredevil stunt pilot) and The Astounding Donaldo (Donald Duck as a snake charmer).”Here’s a list of the threads that I mentioned Pete’s Silly Sideshow.First mentioned:  http://kennythepirate.com/2012/04/19/character-rumor-round-up/Detailed actual characters:  http://kennythepirate.com/2012/04/27/new-fantasyland-opening-early/VIP costumes:  http://kennythepirate.com/2012/07/28/rumor-petes-silly-sideshow-to-introduce-new-vip-costumes/


  1. This is pretty much what I expected (no matter what a few hopeful people said.) I’m excited for new costumes, and I like that Daisy was included, but I still wish at least Pete was meeting.

  2. Heh. Still not sure if I like this much. I prefer the traditional outfits for the Fab Five and Minnie meeting with Mickey. Don’t like the backdrop at Epcot but it’ll have to do unless we do Mickey at Town Square and the rest at DHS. DD8 will be thrilled with the Great Goofini though. Little DD will have to settle with her picture being taken next to the Pete outside the tent I suppose. He’s a fave for some reason.

    • Anjie,
      Minnie’s only traditional costume will be at Epcot Character Spot and Daisy can be found at the Epcot entrance in her traditional attire once this change is made. Mickey at Town Square is actually a much better backdrop for Tuxedo Mickey in my opinion.
