*The Top Places to Meet Mickey Mouse in Walt Disney World article is written in part for EZ Dis Instant Impressions Travel Specialists. But all Disney World Mickey Mouse Character Meeting opinions here are expressly my own.
No matter how many times my family frequents Walt Disney World, there is one thing we must do. That must do each time is to meet Mickey Mouse. During our visits, we even end up meeting him multiple times. Why is that?
That is because Mickey Mouse is all over Walt Disney World. Let’s face it, Mickey Mouse and Disney go hand-in-hand. Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse go all the way back to 1925. So, it stands to reason that Mickey Mouse has become a mascot of sorts for Walt Disney World even after all these years.
Therefore when in Walt Disney World, Mickey Mouse is everywhere on merchandise and also character meet-and-greets in and out of the four majors parks, as well as character dining. Mickey Mouse is even mastered hiding out all over Walt Disney Property in the form of Hidden Mickeys. On top of this, Mickey and Minnie Mouse dress in many different outfits throughout the parks and restaurants. Therefore, a little-known fact is that Mickey Mouse has over 175 outfits! Plus, Minnie Mouse has over 200 outfits!
If you are going to Walt Disney World, then trust me you will want to meet, get autographs or take photos with Mickey Mouse.
**Take note that in Walt Disney World, you can either pay for dining as you go or sign up for a Dining Plan. Find out more about Disney Dining Plans available here. Most below require at least the Disney Dining Plan. Plus all character dining experiences shared in this article, need advanced reservations. Look below for further help with booking these dining reservations in advance or for FastPass selection help.

The Top Places Where to Meet Mickey Mouse in Disney World
Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom
♥ Town Square Theater
When you first walk into Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Mickey Mouse is in the Town Square Theater. This character spot is on the right-hand side once you enter the park.
Mickey Mouse here actually talked for a bit in the past. See the video below:
However, that ended back in May of this past year. Now, Mickey Mouse is once again quiet. But you can FastPass this character meet and greet. Or you can stand on line. Here you can meet Mickey Mouse, get his autograph and also a photograph, as well.
Walt Disney World’s Epcot
Mickey Mouse is found in two different locations here. One is in a character meet-and-greet similar to the one at The Magic Kingdom or also at a table service dining experience. Read on to find out about both.
♥ The Character Spot (Future World)
The Character Spot is the meet-and-greet at Epcot. Here you meet not only Mickey Mouse but Minnie, Goofy, Pluto or Donald (The Fab 5). This experience can also be FastPassed, or standby is available, too. Plus, all the characters will do autographs and photos, as well.
♥ The Garden Grill (Future World/The Land)
You can also dine to meet Mickey and friends (Chip, Dale, and Pluto) for Breakfast, lunch or dinner here. A reservation is required for all. A little-known fact is that you can beat the crowds if you do eat breakfast here and get to the head of the line for the ride, Soarin’.

♥ Mickey and Minnie Starring in Red Carpet Dreams
Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios’ version of a character meet-and-greet with Mickey Mouse can be found here.

Once again photos and autographs are allowed here with or without a FastPass experience.
Walt Disney World’s the Animal Kingdom
In Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, you once again have two choices where to meet Mickey Mouse with either a table service dining experience or a character meet-and-greet experience.

Also, a character meet-and-greet where both Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse similarly dressed like they are at Tusker House in Safari outfits.
Walt Disney World’s Resorts (Table Service Dining)
♥ Mickey’s Backyard Barbecue at The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort
In the covered, but open-air dining pavilion, Mickey Mouse and friends are dressed for a music-filled hoedown. You also need advance dining reservations for this BBQ picnic character, dining experience. Keep in mind this dining experience closes soon.

Yay and I I hope you can get back to meet Mickey very soon now, too <3
I love all of Mickey’s outfits. I never did get to meet the talking Mickey! Thanks for the giveaway!
Totally got my fingers crossed. And so sorry to hear you never met the Talking Mickey. He literally was my younger daughter’s favorite. I am honestly hoping they can bring him back at some point 😉

We just watched a movie on Netflix called “Walt Before Mickey”…very interesting movie about Walt Disney and his struggles before he made it big…I think you’d like it.
Wishing for you a brilliant Thursday, Janine!
I think I would totally love that show and so would Kevin, too. We have Netflix. So going to have to see if we can indeed check it out now. Thanks, Bill and have the best Thursday now, too!! 🙂
Nellie Acevedo says
I love animal kingdom Mickey! I’ve been lucky enough to see Mickey in SO many outfit changes! He is adorable in anything. Thank you for the handy list!
You are so welcome and I bet you can’t take your little girl, too when she is old enough now 😉
Kristi Campbell says
Each time I read one of your Disney posts, I want to go back!!! We need to go. The California Disney might be more doable from Colorado now though. Also, those leggings are totally adorable.
California Disney is most definitely I would think doable and if you ever decide to do this, please let me know as I’d love to help with planning 🙂
With older kids, Mickey is pretty much the one character we still clamor to take a photo with! So fun to see your family pics when we have the same ones. I’m definitely not tall, so I guess the OS would be my legging size. 🙂
Aw, love that you have similar Mickey photos. And I also noted you for the OS leggings, as well 🙂
aha! So many fun Mickeys. This year we will look for them! My kids will be so excited.
Omg so are mine and have countdowns in their iPads now, too ?
You are seriously the fount of Disney knowledge 🙂 So many fun Mickeys!
Aw, thanks Jen and seriously I just love Disney and Mickey Mouse, too!! 🙂
Natasha J says

Diane ROARK says
I am so missing Mickey Mouse. I was thrilled to get a special surprise gift from my husband this week. It is an Apple watch. The best thing is Minnie Mouse tells me what time it is and always tells me good morning and good afternoon with such a happy voice. My family thinks I am nuts but I love hearing her voice. It makes me smile.
Thanks for letting everyone know where they can find a smile.
Omg, I love that you got Minnie on your iPhone watch and wish we lived closer as I would love to see that!! 🙂
Rhonda Gales says
I hope to take the grandchildren to Disney in December. My grandchildren love Mickey Mouse. So, your tips on where to meet the gang is so helpful. Thanks for sharing on Sunday’s Best.
Aw, so happy to hear and stay tuned as I will be sharing some tips for Christmas time at Walt Disney World soon, too 🙂
Summer I says
I would love to win the OS. Thanks for the chance.
