New character rumors for Magic Kingdom and Epcot

(Rumors until officially confirmed by Disney of course)

It’s been a great, busy week in the character world.  We’ve received confirmation and artwork for Pete’s Silly Sideshow and heard that Gaston will join the Enchanted Forest crew and reminded you that Ariel will move back to fin form as well.

Well, I have received more exciting news for the Magic Kingdom.  Marie is said to be moving from Epcot to Magic Kingdom to take Daisy’s spot at the flag pole, Chip n Dale will relocate to Donald’s spot in Frontierland (reported previously) and Captain Hook and Mr. Smee will return to take over Goofy’s spot at the Pirate’s ride!

I have read on another character blog that Beast would leave Epcot to move to Magic Kingdom, but that rumor seems to have no credence for meet and greets.

The Princesses will receive a grand new makeover with new dresses, hairstyles and shoes when their new area opens in 2013.  Could we hope for Aurora as Briar Rose???

Donald will leave the character spot in Epcot and Daisy will move into that spot.  Donald will remain Mexico.  Stitch is said to be relocating to a yet unknown location.

Enjoy your character hunting made easier!

Pete’s Silly Sideshow Rumors Confirmed!

The beautiful exterior of the all new Pete’s Silly Sideshow
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/

Minnie, Piglet, Daisy and Donald out early at Hollywood Studios.

Sometimes characters appear outside the gates of Hollywood Studios before the park opens and you can meet them with little or no wait.  Today it was Minnie, Piglet, Daisy and Donald.  We met them all in only 7 minutes!

Sorcerer’s Hat characters relocate during Star Wars Weekends

As they did last year, Donald, Daisy, Minnie, Goofy and the gang will NOT meet outside at the Sorcerer’s Hat in the moring hours during Star Wars Weekends.  Instead, they will meet inside the Animation building from 8:30 until 11:30 am Friday-Saturday until Star Wars Weekends concludes.
