Town Square Theater at Magic Kingdom Park

No fooling, on April 1, Magician Mickey Mouse moved into a new location at Magic Kingdom Park to meet and greet his friends at the Walt Disney World Resort. And beginning this weekend, you can now go backstage at Town Square Theater for photos and autographs with Mickey and skip the standby queue with Disney’s FASTPASS.

  • I was wondering, Mickey is doing the whole magician thing at Town Square but isn’t Goofy also getting his own magician themed roller coaster with the new Fantasyland expansion? Isn’t the company worried that they have two characters using the same concept in one park at the same time?

  • That picture with Mickey and Oswald together is great. I sure hope Oswald could join Mickey. We <3 Oswald!

  • Very nice photo of the drawing of Mickey and Oswald.

    I’d like to see a REAL magic act presentation there with a Meet and Greet session with Oswald after the show.
