No trip to Disney World is complete without taking a bit of
time for the family to meet Mickey Mouse. After all, he’s the main character
attraction no matter which of the Disney parks you go to. Mickey Mouse can be
found in each of the Disney Parks, from Magic Kingdom to Hollywood Studios, and
he also visits several dining establishments across Disney property, so you’ll
have plenty of opportunities to meet him.
Meet Mickey at Magic Kingdom
If you only meet Mickey Mouse in one place, you probably
want to meet him in the most iconic Disney World park, Magic Kingdom. Mickey
currently meets guests in the front of the park, in an area known as Town
Square Theater. In this location, Mickey generally meets in a magician’s
Moana is certainly one of the most popular Disney characters to meet. Unlike other characters throughout the park, Moana can’t be found roaming the park. You’ll have to attend one of Magic Kingdom’s holiday parties, either Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Each of these special events also comes with an extra price tag: Mickey’s Halloween Party starts at $79 per ticket and Mickey’s Christmas Party starts at $99 per ticket. These prices go up during peak times or if you wait to purchase your ticket the day of each event.
You’ll find Moana at each of these parties in the queue area of the Enchanted Tiki Room in Adventureland. She starts greeting guests at around 5:45, and Disney Parks Moms Panel recommends planning for at least a 30-minute wait. WDW Prep School recommends seeing Moana during the last half of each party as the wait times tend to be shorter.
When we took our three kids to Walt Disney World for their first time, we thought we had planned everything perfectly. Flights, resorts, park tickets, all the way down to rain ponchos and cooling towels for the weather. Then it came time to grab the kids’ autograph books for their favorite Disney character signatures. What we found was way too expensive, designs that the kids didn’t like, and books that wouldn’t be convenient for carrying around the park.
We decided to design our own books after that trip, and we put together several tips for finding the perfect Disney autograph books for character autographs.
Finding the right price
One of the first things we noticed was that the prices were expensive!
