    Hi, We will be traveling with our 3 boys in early October. I want to get the most out of the character experience for the boys, in particular they have been asking for Daisy and Pete. Is Pete's Silly Sideshow open daily and is it a show or a meet & gre

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Joanna!

    Traveling to Disney World with boys is great fun!!

    Pete's Silly Sideshow is an indoor character meet and greet location and can be found in the Storybook Circus area of Fantasyland. It is typically open daily. You can find the hours its open for the day of your visit to the Magic Kingdom by picking up a printed Times Guide as you enter the park. They are also available at most merchandise locations and Guest Relations. You can also find character appearance schedules by downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile App. This app is free and available for both iPhones and Androids.

    At Pete's Silly Sideshow, you'll meet:
    * Goofy appearing as the Great Goofini
    * Donald Duck appearing as the Amazing Donaldo 
    * Daisy as Daisy Fortuna (fortune teller) 
    * Minnie as Minnie Magnifique (poodle trainer)

    There are 2 lines at Pete's Silly Sideshow.  In one you'll meet both Goofy and Donald and in the other you'll meet Minnie and Daisy.

    Unfortunately, Pete is one of those characters that is very rarely seen. In all my years of visiting, I've never laid eyes on him in person in any of the parks. However, this is the year of Limited Time Magic so you never know what special thing Disney will announce next.

    If you need assistance locating any other characters or need ideas for boys, let me know.  I'm hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
