Pete’s Silly Sideshow soft opening and Magic Kingdom character changes


Rumor has it that Pete’s Silly Sideshow will be open for day guests tomorrow, and be open for MNSSHP guests beginning with Thursday, October 4th’s party and continuing through the run of MNSSHP.  No word on MVMCP yet. Daisy, Minnie, Donald and Goofy will use their Disney magic and also be found in their regular MNSSHP meet locations.

As of the moment, when Pete’s Silly Sideshow opens, Guest Assistance Cards will not be accepted to bypass the line, only Make A Wish kids will be allowed to bypass the main queue.  Fastpass is not said to be offered at this time.

While the queue line is divided into male (Donald and Goofy) and female (Daisy and Minnie) characters, one will still be able to see the other characters within the room, but will only be able to meet them if they exit and re-queue for the other characters.

Pete’s tent is scheduled for open to close hours but will not be offered for Extra Magic Hours.

Minnie Mouse’s last day in Town Square Theater is said to be today, October 3rd.  Daisy will no longer meet in Town Square, Donald will no longer meet in Frontierland and Goofy will no longer meet in Adventureland after today.

Chip n Dale are scheduled to take over Donald’s spot in Frontierland tomorrow as well.  Marie took over at the flag pole on September 30.


  1. Oh dear, no more coonskin cap Donald? Oh well. I’m mainly worried about being able to still meet Belle in MK after Storytime reopens.

  2. Went this morning, it was great! I won’t be able to post my pics till I get home. Went in one line and then went through the other. Was done by 9:20 and they opened a little late. About 9:05!

  3. Headed to MNSSHP tomorrow. How does all of this affect the characters in their Halloween costumes? Does this mean Donald & Daisy or Mickey & Minnie won’t be together in their usual MNSSHP spots in costume or Goofy at Stitch’s Dance Party? I’d love to hear what you might know to help me plan & I’ll post what I see at the parties I attend (10/4 & 10/5).

  4. No meeting Minnie, Donald, Goofy or Daisy without going to MNSSHP at the MK right now? They’ve been pulled and the tent will not be open during non party hours. Right?

    • That is not what it says. It says Petes will be open for day guests AND for MNSSHP. Not ONLY MNSSHP. You will still be able to see them. :)
