Vote below to tell us your favorite character meet-and-greet at Magic Kingdom
Magic Kingdom offers a variety of Character Meet-and-Greets throughout the park. The character interactions are always super fun and filling up that Disney autograph book is a right of passage for many guests. With a large number of meet-and-greets to choose from, it can be a bit daunting narrowing down that must-do list. To help you narrow down your list for your next trip, I have ranked my top 4 Magic Kingdom character meet-and-greets.

#4-Winnie the Pooh and Tigger
Winnie the Pooh and Tigger will always earn a spot on my list of the top character meet-and-greets at Magic Kingdom. Part of the reason is childhood nostalgia, while another part is simply because meeting them is just so much fun! The themed area at The Thotful Spot in Fantasyland really helps bring the experience to life. Lines for this one tend to ebb and flow throughout the day, so if you see a long line and don’t want to wait keep checking the app for wait times to drop!
Daisy is a fun character to meet and interact with, especially at Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Fantasyland. We have been eagerly awaiting for this character meet-and-greet spot to open back up since it closed during COVID, and are so happy it is back. The theming here (with Daisy dressed like a fortune teller complete with a crystal ball) really adds to the experience. Daisy is just as fun and sassy in the meet-and-greet as she is in the cartoons, so this is a character meet you definitely do not want to miss!
There are a few locations throughout the parks where you can meet Ariel, but Ariel’s Grotto affords the opportunity to travel under the sea and meet the Disney princess in her mermaid form-complete with a tail! We always have fun bantering with Ariel about her collection of thingamabobs, including the famous dinglehopper.

#1-Mickey at Town Square
No visit to Walt Disney World is complete without an audience with the boss mouse himself, and we can think of no better place to check this must-do off the list than at Town Square Theater. A meet-and-greet with Mickey here is truly a magical one, with artifacts from Mickey’s magical career on display around the room. While we were a bit sad when Disney took the talking Mickey away from this meet-and-greet location, this spot is always high on our must-do list for visits to Magic Kingdom.
Unranked But Definitely Worth Visiting
There are a few honorable mentions that almost made the list. Gaston is always a super fun meet-and-greet and proves a villain park/area would be a popular addition to Walt Disney World. Meeting the princesses is always a fun character experience, with Cinderella and a visiting princess hosting guests at Princess Fairytale Hall. Pete’s Silly Sideshow provides meet-and-greets with Goofy, Minnie, and Donald in addition to Daisy, allowing you to meet these four popular characters all in one spot! Belle is also back in Enchanted Tales with Belle, which is an amazing experience that you need to check out if you have not already (the special effects used in this attraction make it worth a visit, and meeting Belle is a great added bonus).
