This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Very quietly over the last few weeks, a new meet and greet was constructed inside the Magic of Disney Animation at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Eventually planned to be a FastPass+ only meet and greet experience, there is a new place to meet Minnie Mouse between the Mickey Mouse and Wreck-It Ralph meet and greets already located inside. Let’s take a look at this new location (previously just a bank of interactive game kiosks):

Once in the queue, there are some framed pieces representing fictional films Minnie Mouse has been in and some props featuring some of her friends

Hollywood Brown Derby style caricatures on the wall

The movie posters are fantastic, we hope they will sell them in the stores at some point

Posters for Minnie Poppins, The Jungle Cruise, and Squakin’ In The Rain

The Jungle Cruise poster has nods to Imagineers Harper Goff and Bill Evans… it’s also playing at the Theater of the Stars

Interestingly, this is a Spanish poster

Some DuckTales characters referenced here


A cool reference to Frank and Ollie, two of the Nine Old Men

More cariactures

My personal favorite is Mouse Pacific, featuring the Adventureland buildings and the Little Orange Bird

Some of the names referenced are a combination of Disney legends and Tiki Room bird names

Another neat poster

Minnie’s room is labeled as Dressing Room 2

The roof is gorgeous in the meet and greet

The carpet is great too

Some awesome blakc and white photos of Minnie Mouse around the room

The Golden Mickeys is a show on the Disney Cruise Line and at Hong Kong Disneyland, the date of the ceremony on the poster even marks the opening day of Hong Kong Disneyland

Minnie has several Golden Mickeys and other awards on her shelves

The awards reference the films in the queue

Behind Minnie is jewelry and perfume

More awards

The backdrop is really nice

Here’s video of our experience meeting Minnie Mouse, including a surprise appearance by a very famous guest…

So, what do you think of Minnie’s new digs at Disney’s Hollywood Studios?

Move Minnie's new digs because they are more elegant and give nod to the prior Imagineers and creators. We loved this and we were able to get in and out in 20 minutes from entering the building door to exiting the building. We just lucked out.
