Mickey Mouse greeting guests at EPCOT

Mickey fans rejoice! Mickey Mouse meet-and-greets have made a modified comeback at EPCOT! You can get a close-up photo with the main mouse himself at the Disney & PIXAR Short Film Festival, just around the corner from Journey Into the Imagination.

Stepping into the building, you’ll make a sharp right and immediately notice Mickey in a staged area behind a velvet rope. When my family visited, the line was not long and it moved quickly. Have your MagicBand ready because a PhotoPass photographer is standing by to capture the moment!

The new setup allows for guests to stand closer and get a better view of Mickey, while still being socially distanced. Since the character “sighting” takes place indoors, guests ages 2 and up will be required to wear a mask under current guidelines.

If you’ve been to EPCOT lately, you will know that Mickey and Minnie, as well as Goofy and Pluto, have been seeing guests at a distance near Spaceship Earth. While we’ve enjoyed being able to interact with the characters immensely, we’ve missed the special one-on-one attention of a meet-and-greet. Moms and dads know what I mean when I say that our kids light up when they get Mickey to themselves!

To see Mickey up close in the Magic Kingdom, you can head to his usual spot in the Town Square Theatre. Several princesses are also back at Fairytale Hall. Minnie Mouse has just come back to meet-and-greets at Hollywood Studios in Red Carpet Dreams. Hopefully, this means we will be seeing more characters across the parks soon! Have you visited Mickey at a “sighting” yet?
