PHOTOS, VIDEO: Minnie’s Dog “Fifi” First Disney Character Added to “it’s a small world” at the Magic Kingdom with Rumors of More to Come
It may still be a small world after all, but it seems like the cast inside is getting bigger… and the new member looks very familiar.
A new character was installed at “it’s a small world” in the Magic Kingdom on Tuesday. In the South American scene, we spotted a wooden figure of Fifi the Peke, Minnie Mouse’s beloved dog, hiding amongst the penguins. This gives credence to the rumor we posted last year that approximately 40 Disney film characters would be added to the attraction in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021. The possible refurbishment would make it similar to its sister versions in Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, and Hong Kong Disneyland.
Fifi could be related to this character addition project, something accidentally left in a show scene, or just some fun nod Imagineers have added to the ride. Only time will tell.
