Walt Disney World has never offered a Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this early in the season. It seemed really premature to be offering everyone a “Happy Halloween” while we were pouring sweat all night long on Labor Day. I suppose the goal was to sell more… Continue reading KennythePirate’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party review from the first party #mnsshp
For our second adventure, we chose to drop in and visit Minnie in her hidden location in Hollywood Studios Animation area. Her meet is very nondescript with no identifiable signage that would point to a meet and greet. She is across from the Sorcerer Mickey meet that attracts a 30-45 minute wait, while Minnie’s queue was vacant.
Here’s a short video of my girls spending a little time talking with Minnie
Here’s a few photos of our time together.
Next time your in Hollywood Studios, be sure to visit Minnie. She loves to greet fans, especially in this hidden location.
Rock Your Summer Side Dance Party
Update: It appears that this dance party will be merged into the Frozen Summer of Fun Live promotion and will begin at 5:30pm at the Sorcerer’s Hat.
Something that seemingly appeared out of nowhere is the new “Rock Your Summer Side” Disney character dance party. It was announced on Friday and began the same day.
According to the press release the dance party will be offered in front of the Sorcerer Hat at Hollywood Studios until August 22nd. The dance party runs from 6:00pm to 10:00pm daily.
The dance party features 30 minutes of live music by Mulch, Sweat and Shears followed by 30 minutes with a DJ and the Disney characters. The characters first appeared at 6:30pm to an otherwise empty dance party area. As soon as everyone saw the face below, the people in the area ran to meet the VIP characters.
Jedi Mickey’s Star Wars Dinner at Hollywood and Vine in Disney’s Hollywood Studios
This Star Wars dinner has a totally different feeling and appeal to it than its breakfast counterpart. The breakfast meal is in a really dark environment and features dark characters (except Jawas) and they provide movie clips. (recently added more content to the breakfast post, so you might want to click the link to check out the additions).
The Jedi Mickey’s dinner provides a much lighter feeling. It’s bright and vibrant and there’s upbeat music playing. It features some great classic characters that includes Chip n Dale as Ewoks, Jedi Mickey, Princess Leia Minnie, Darth Goofy and Stormtrooper Donald. You can meet these same characters in the park during Star Wars Weekends in these costumes, but expect long lines and Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy rotate often.
Jedi Mickey’s Star Wars Dine cost information:
The cost of this Star Wars character meal is $55.99 for adults 10 and over and $32.99 for children 3 to 9 years of age. If you’d like to make it a Fantasmic! dining package the cost is slightly more at $59.99 for adults and $36.99 for children. The meal will also include a FREE digital download of Ewok Chip n Dale. The meal will begin serving at 4:15pm daily and close with the park.
The Disney Star Wars Characters in attendance:
Chip n Dale as Ewoks
Ewok Chip n Dale are the official greeters of Jedi Mickey’s dinner at Hollywood and Vine. They appear with a giant logo background right as you enter the restaurant. They do not move about the restaurant, they are in a fixed location.
