FASTPASSING THE MOUSE

Jessica C. (NDI#21) (81 Posts)

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!

Starting this spring, guests will be able to schedule a time to meet with Mickey Mouse. No, you don’t call his secretary to schedule an appointment, but you actually use a system that many guests are familiar with, the FASTPASS.

Now that Mickey’s Toontown Fair is a thing of the past, guests were not sure where they would be able to catch their favorite mouse for photo opportunities.  As seen on Disney Parks Blog, Mickey will be available to guests in the Town Square Theater, a sight that is currently being revamped for the addition.  Guests will be able to wait in an interactive queue to see Mickey or, if so desired, you can pick up a FASTPASS.  When your window of time arrives, just march on in and see the big cheese himself! This is the first time that Disney has used the FASTPASS system for character interactions.

It was also announced that during the Fantasyland Expansion, guests would also be able to visit the princesses in the Town Square Theater, as their original meet and greet was removed along with Toontown and their new area will not be built yet.  The meet and greet areas in the Town Square Theater are currently being worked on and will be available to guests this spring.
