Popular Character Meet Rumored to Return to Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom has been seriously lacking in character interactions compared to the other 3 theme parks. A popular character interaction at this theme park is rumored to be returning!

Out of the four Disney World theme parks, Animal Kingdom is the most lacking in terms of character interactions. Animal Kingdom relies mostly on floatillas, which are basically water parades, and character dining to bring characters out in the park. Unfortunately, this means that you really can’t get close to them like you can at the other parks (even with social distancing).

Kevin and DiVine recently returned, which is really great to see! But, in my opinion it’s just not enough. Characters can be found in almost every country at the World Showcase. Star Wars and Disney Junior friends all meet with Guests at Hollywood Studios. Plus, there are tons of (modified) meets at Magic Kingdom once again.

With news that character meets are likely returning shortly after Easter, it’s really time for Disney to ramp up interactions in Animal Kingdom.

Rumor alert!

47. Mickey and Minnie Posted Wait 15 Arrived 9:10pm Departed 9:18pm

We have some pretty exciting news to share! Our KtP sources indicate that Mickey is likely returning to Adventurers Outpost in Animal Kingdom. This is right past Flame Tree and It’s Tough to be a Bug on the way to Asia.

Mickey Mouse is rumored to return to Adventurers Outpost in Animal Kingdom!

Not only that, but it is possible Minnie Mouse will join him! This is such a fun character interaction with unique outfits. Right now, we are only seeing them in the Mickey and Friends Floatilla.

At this time, we do not know when this will take place.

Other characters that need to return

Animal Kingdom is not just missing Mickey and Minnie in their adventure outfits! Chip ‘n’ Dale, Daisy, Donald, and Goofy all used to meet in Dinoland. At Discovery Island, Pocahontas, Rafiki, Russell, Dug, and Timon were also some of the characters available for meets before the parks closed in March 2020.

Hopefully with non-distanced meets returning soon, we will begin to see more characters!

Are you excited for the return of Mickey (and maybe Minnie) at Animal Kingdom? Let us know in the comment below and on Facebook.
