Storybook Circus Meet & Greet

Storybook Circus Meet & Greet in the Magic Kingdom has filed permits for work to be done. Pete’s Silly Sideshow is a character meet-and-greet area featured in the Storybook Circus section of Fantasyland. Unlike the past when it housed Meet and Greets, recently it has housed a mask-free zone.

It is vague on the work order, only saying they will “provide labor, material and/or electrical for construction”. I gather by the permits, filed recently in Orange County, that it could be to transform the building back into the Storybook Circus Meet & Greet. Nonetheless, without Disney’s word, we do not know the full details. Furthermore, this could just be an upgrade. Rumor and Innuendo say Meet and Greet returning.

Storybook Circus Casey Jr Splash Pad

Storybook Circus is home to Big Top Souvenirs along with Casey Jr Splash and Soak Station. In addition to a stop on the Walt Disney Railroad, when that is in operations. Not only is Dumbo the Flying Elephant located in Storybook Circus, but also Barnstormer.

Also included in the area is Pete’s Silly Sideshow. Undoubtedly, one of the coolest spots to meet the characters in Circus mode! Goofy as “The Great Goofini” along with Donald Duck as “The Astounding Donaldo”. Subsequently, my favorite is Daisy as “Madame Daisy Fortuna”. We all love Minnie as “Minnie Magnifique”.

Storybook Circus Big Top

Though the attraction is named after Pete, he does not physically appear within it beyond the marquee. Design sketches in an Imagineer’s online portfolio suggest he was original to have been animatronic (with a skeleton recycled from the Timekeeper) at the entrance serving as a carnival barker inviting guests inside
