Heading to Disney World and want to meet Mickey Mouse?
From dedicated Meet and Greets to Character Dining Experiences both inside and outside the parks, here’s where you can find the Big Cheese on your next visit to Disney World.
Meet and Greet with Mickey
Character Meet and Greets are a great way to get up close and personal with your favorite Disney characters. Mickey Mouse is one of the most accessible characters, with Meet and Greet locations in each Disney World theme park.
Town Square Theater – Main Street, U.S.A.
At Magic Kingdom, you can meet Mickey Mouse at the Town Square Theater just inside the entrance to the park. Usually, you’d find him dressed as Magician Mickey in his dressing room. But to celebrate his 90th birthday, Mickey and Minnie Mouse are greeting guests together in special 90th birthday celebration outfits!
If you happen to be visiting Disney World when they hold special events, then you may be able to see Mickey Mouse.

- Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
- DVC Member Moonlight Magic
- runDisney Race Weekends
Epcot Character Spot – Future World
If you’re looking to meet Mickey Mouse in his classic look, then head to Epcot. Mickey Mouse, along with Minnie Mouse and Goofy, greet guests at the Character Spot in Future World.
Disney Visa Cardmember Character Experience – Future World
One of the best character meets we’ve ever done is the Disney Visa Cardmember Character Experience. You never know exactly which characters you’ll see, but both times we stopped by, Mickey was there.
The great thing about the exclusive meet is that you aren’t as rushed and have more time to interact.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Red Carpet Dreams – Commissary Lane
At Red Carpet Dreams on Commissary Lane, you can meet Mickey Mouse in his iconic Sorcerer Mickey costume from “Fantasia”. Hollywood Starlet Minnie is also at this location.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Adventurers Outpost – Discovery Island
You won’t need your binoculars when you get up close and personal with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in their safari gear at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You can meet them at the Adventurers Outpost on Discovery Island just before the bridge to Asia.
Dine with Mickey
We always do at least one character meal when we visit Disney World. Because eating is a necessity and meeting characters is on our list, combining the two makes perfect sense!
Character Meals with Mickey Mouse
Here are all the character dining experiences where you can see Mickey Mouse at Disney World.
Chef Mickey’s Fun Time Buffet – Disney’s Contemporary Resort
A popular choice for families wanting to meet Mickey and the rest of the “fab 5” is Chef Mickey’s restaurant at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast – The Garden Grill, Epcot
Chip and Dale may get their names on the feast offered at the Garden Grill restaurant, but Mickey Mouse puts in an appearance as well. The restaurant slowly revolves as you eat and meet with the characters.
Minnie’s Seasonal Dining – Hollywood & Vine, Disney’s Hollywood Studios
The theme and character attire of Minnie’s Seasonal Dining changes throughout the year, but Mickey can usually be found here with most of the gang.
Tusker House – Disney’s Animal Kingdom
The buffet at Tusker House restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a great way to meet Mickey and grab a bite to eat! Mickey and his friends are all dressed in their safari gear.
Best Friends Breakfast Featuring Lilo & Stitch – ‘Ohana, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
One of our favorite breakfasts in all of Disney World is the Best Friends Breakfast at ‘Ohana. Mickey is super cute in his Hawaiian shirt and lei.
Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy & His Pals – Ravello, Four Seasons Orlando
We’ve yet to get over there for the Goofy and Pals breakfast they have on select days, but it looks interesting. Love Mickey’s preppy attire!
