Disney World Character Greeting: Meeting Mickey in Town Square

After driving from Grandma’s house in South Carolina, we arrived at our hotel around 5pm. We checked in, unpacked the car very quickly, and made our way to the Magic Kingdom by 6pm (the park had Extra Magic Hours that night so we got a good six hours there that night!)

Right away, we picked up some Fastpasses for the Town Square Character meet & greets.

First up was the main mouse, himself – Mickey!

Being the first character meeting, this was a bit awkward for the kids.


Luke was actually a little frightened. I feel bad looking at this picture – he looks like he’s trying to escape!


With help from Mickey and his handlers, we did manage to calm everyone down long enough for a family photo. A reluctant family, but a photo nonetheless.


It did take Luke several days to warm up to the characters, though. Fortunately, Scarlett liked them and wanted more. On to the Princesses!
