Pete's Silly Sideshow

Congratulations to everyone at the Magic Kingdom and especially those involved in the Fantasyland Expansion. With every major area of Storybook Circus now open to guests, I think we can safely say they have a real hit on their hands.

The last section to open was the meet and greet attraction of Pete’s Silly Sideshow. The story casts four popular Disney characters (Goofy, Donald, Daisy, and Minnie) as members of the traveling circus. Goofy is The Great Goofini, circus stuntman extraordinaire; Donald is The Astounding Donaldo, the most charming of snake charmers; Daisy Duck plays the part of Madame Daisy Fortuna, a mysterious gypsy fortuneteller; and Minnie Mouse is the “Siren of the Seine,” that Parisian poodle trainer Minnie Magnifique.

The sets look wonderful and the costumes are creative. I do see a problem and I wonder if there is a good answer. Guests who want a picture taken with their favorite character in traditional attire will have to take their chances out in the parks. I actually can’t remember the last time I’ve seen sailor suit Donald in the parks for a photo, can you?
