A brand new meet and greet area quietly popped up at the Magic of Disney Animation building at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Here, guests have the ability to meet with Minnie Mouse, herself. While I was in Walt Disney World this past weekend, I decided I needed to spend some quality time with Minnie, so I went to check the area out.
Guests will find this new, sort of unassuming (probably for now) area next to the Wreck-It Ralph meet and greet. Next to Game Central Station, you’ll find an overhead sign that just says “Drawing Room.” One thing to note is that there are FastPass+ readers outside this meet and greet, meaning that this attraction will likely support FastPass+ reservations at some point in the future.
Guests enter the line and are escorted into a very small waiting space that is filled with fantastically themed movie posters, as well as some wonderful artwork. Be sure to read the posters, as many of them include nods to famous Imagineers, as well as other Disney characters.
Once guests reach the end of the line, they are invited in to meet Minnie. The area for the meet and greet is very small, but filled to the brim with fabulous details. It’s a very retro-Hollywood style room, with lots of great details that surround, including memorabilia of Minnie’s various performances, as well as her many, many awards that are proudly displayed.
According to the current Times Guide, she will be meeting continuously throughout the day from 10:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. (Be sure to check the Times Guide for her hours while you are there.)
Overall, this was a great experience, and even when the entire queue is full, guests shouldn’t have a terribly long wait.
