    I'm taking my 1-year-old to WDW for the first time in May. She is OBSESSED with Monsters, Inc., but I see the meet and greet spot at Hollywood Studios with Mike and Sully was closed last year. Is there anywhere we can meet them?

    Hi Alicia!

    It sounds like you have a little "Wanna-Boo" in your family! My daughters were huge fans of Monsters, Inc. when they were little, so I understand completely!

    Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan (Sulley) have taken temporary leave from their usual meet-and-greet location in Disney's Hollywood Studios to allow for new construction. While this means there isn't currently an "official" meet-and-greet with Mike and Sulley, don't despair - I'll tell you where your little one can see her favorite monsters!

    First, make sure to visit Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor in Disney's Magic Kingdom Park. Mike Wazowski is the "Monster of Ceremonies" in this fun improvisational comedy show. The monsters (on video screens) interact with the audience in real time, and every show you see is different! While your daughter won't be able to meet the characters in person, she will surely get a giggle from seeing Mike on the big screen during this hilarious show.

    My other advice is about when to visit Walt Disney World Resort. On select nights in September and October, guests can attend a special ticketed event called Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It's an amazing event with trick-or-treating, awesome Halloween fireworks and the Boo-to-You Halloween parade. Mike and Sulley are almost always in attendance at a nightly dance party in Tomorrowland! The Scream-O-Ween Dance Party is the place to be if you want to boogie the night away with your favorite friends from Monstropolis.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Mike and Sulley will someday soon get a new spot to meet their biggest fans. Always watching, Wazowski, always watching. - Diane W.
