Inside Pete’s Silly Sideshow as Walt Disney World debuts meet-and-greet with classic characters completing Storybook Circus

Walt Disney World today put a few finishing touches on Storybook Circus at the Magic Kingdom with the debut of Pete’s Silly Sideshow, a new meet-and-greet location featuring amusing variations on classic Disney characters.

Set inside one of the new land’s many big top circus tents, Pete’s Silly Sideshow features side-by-side-by-side-by-side character greetings with the following familiar faces in new roles: Minnie Magnifique (Minnie Mouse as a circus star), Madame Daisy Fortuna (Daisy Duck as a fortune teller), The Great Goofini (Goofy as a stunt pilot) and The Astounding Donaldo (Donald Duck as a snake charmer).

Here are photos of each of the characters’ new costumes and surroundings:

The Great Goofini, of course, also has his own ride within Storybook Circus, The Barnstormer.

Storybook Circus is part of the expansion project which nearly doubles the size of Fantasyland, a multiyear project set to grand open Dec. 6, 2012.
