It All Starts With A Mouse
Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railway starts with the audience standing in a movie room watching a modern-styled cartoon short about our two favorite mice setting out to have a nice, calm picnic in the park.
Dont worry about standing around watching cartoons for too long, because before long, Goofy shows up and bursts through the fourth wall of storytelling literally.

Their costumes are the EARidescent color which is the official colorway of Disney Worlds birthday festivities.
Each of figures com with official 50th anniversary tags.
The dolls retails for $9.99 each.
We love the way these to cuties look side-by-side.
They are perfect for displaying all year round.
We love the details on these figures right down to Mickey and Minnies golden shoes.
Theyre easily poseable.
Both Mickey an Minnie are sporting big celebratory grins.

We love the beautiful pastel hues of pink, purples and blues.
The same can be said for the delightful ruffles on Minnies dress.

Character Meet and Greets are Coming Back, with Restrictions
Pre-pandemic, Disney Characters could typically be found all over Disney Parks. Whether it be at designated character Meet and Greets or as part of a Disney Dining Experience at one of the many character dining experiences. Now characters can be seen in cavalcades, at select character dining restaurants, and individually. One restriction to the return of Character Meet and Greets is that AUTOGRAPHS ARE NOT PERMITTED. Character time will be minimal, but closer than before and there is an allowance for a picture to be taken. Note, that these experiences are slowly returning. So they will not all be available at once. Check the My Disney Experience App for up-to-date availability.

Best Location To Meet Mickey Mouse
Do you want in on a little secret? We stumbled upon the best location to meet Mickey Mouse with low wait times and offers great photos as well.
Many Guests may not be aware that you can meet Mickey Mouse at EPCOT at the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival. This location is just to the left of the Journey into Imagination with Figment attraction. While other parks had wait times of over an hour to meet Mickey Mouse this location had a 5 minute wait.
As we stepped inside, we saw Mickey Mouse in his classic tuxedo. After a very short wait, this was our first time seeing Mickey Mouse now that the ropes have been lowered and Mickey hugs have returend. I thought that I could hold it together when I had my first Mickey hug, but I cried happy tears.
The best interaction with Mickey Mouse is at EPCOT at the Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival.
Thanks to the low wait time, I didnt feel rushed as when we visited Mickey Mouse at the Magic Kingdom later in our trip. The HUGE benefit of this location is also a PhotoPass Photographer. He was on hand to capture this magical expereince. This was simply the best location to meet Mickey Mouse in my opinion.
What do you think? Which Park do you think is the best to give Mickey Mouse a big hug or a high five? Would you be willing to wait an hour to meet Mickey Mouse? Share your thoughts with us on our

Ohana At Disneys Polynesian Village Resort
This is actually my second favorite costume of Mickeys ~ his Hawaiian shirt and lei. It makes for great photos!
Like other character dining locations, its a big bang for your buck, and your time, as you see Mickey AND a few other characters. However, he is only here for breakfast, so keep that in mind.

Adventurers Outpost At Disneys Animal Kingdom Park
Tucked away on Discovery Island at Animal Kingdom is the Adventurers Outpost. I like this Mickey Mouse meet and greet because he is there with Minnie Mouse as well!
So I feel like its a great use of time, and even a FastPass+, at Animal Kingdom. Since they meet together, you can actually get your photo taken with both of them at the same time. This is slightly different from other meet and greets.
While they may be in the same line up of characters, you likely wont get a photo with more than one character at a time. I love this meet and greet because of the unique and sometimes seasonal costumes and that you can see both of them!

Mickey And Minnie Mouse At Magic Kingdom
Meeting Mickey at Magic Kingdom is a definite must, in my opinion. Not only is it the first theme park at Disney World, hes the mouse that started it all. On a regular park day, his costume is a magicians tuxedo. So adorable.
As for Minnie, shes pretty much at the opposite and of the park in New Fantasyland. Her costume fits with the lands circus theme, so its pink with all the glitter and a tiara.
I love Magic Kingdom, especially at rope drop. Here are 4 fun things to do BEFORE rope drop at Magic Kingdom.

Minnie Van Soft Opening At Disney World
Minnie Vans are now in a soft opening phase at Walt Disney World and select guests are able to take a ride around property ahead of the official June 29th return of the service. Earlier today, we took a Minnie Van from EPCOT to Disneys Hollywood Studios to experience the service and see how it will operate when it officially returns on June 29th.
In order to secure a ride on a Minnie Van, guests must download the Lyft app. The service runs exclusively on the Lyft app and there is currently no other way to secure a ride. Once you have selected your destination, the Lyft app will calculate the route and fare before providing you with options. As you can see below, Minnie Van is currently an option for select guests during the soft opening test phase. If you scroll down to the bottom of the vehicle options, you will find the Accessible Minnie Van, which is available at no additional cost. Pricing is dynamic.
According to drivers that we spoke with, about 50% of Lyft users in the area will be presented with Minnie Van as an option today. That number will increase the closer we get to the June 29th opening. The selection of users is random and can change daily.
After finding you a Minnie Van, the app then presents you with details such as what vehicle number youll be on the lookout for and the license plate of the vehicle. This is pretty standard with ride-share apps, but there is a custom vehicle number and Minnie Van photo displayed.
