Inside New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom, you’ll find an old time circus with big tops and big appeal! Visit Storybook Circus and step inside Pete’s Silly Sideshow to meet some beloved Disney characters who are now circus stars. They are are excited to show off their special talents too. Located inside one of the big-top tents in the Storybook Circus area of New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom park, this is a great place to meet new friends and pose for photos with some familiar faces.
At Pete’s Silly Sideshow in the Magic Kingdom, the custom-designed character greeting location created exclusively for Storybook Circus, you are invited to choose a path to meet either Donald Duck and Goofy or Minnie Mouse and Daisy, each playing their own unique role at the circus. At Pete’s Silly Sideshow, Donald is The Astounding Donaldo, the most charming of snake charmers. Goofy, of course, is The Great Goofini, circus stuntman extraordinaire. 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. Detailed props and settings help reinforce each of their stories and fully immerse you in the world of the circus sideshow.
