Today is the official opening of the Magic Kingdom's brand new meet and greet in Town Square Theater
, and also marks the first time that FASTPASS
has been available for character meet and greets. Located between Tony's Town Square Restaurant and the The Chapeau hat shop, the great looking FASTPASS distribution area provides two machines for the 'Backstage Magic with Mickey Mouse' experience, and two machines for the 'Disney's Storybook Princesses' experience. Independent FASTPASS return windows are provided for each meet and greet, and that time window is indicated on the time clock above the FASTPASS machines.
The return time window is currently 1 hour, our FASTPASS which was collected at 8:50am was for a return time of 9:30am to 10:30am, with another FASTPASS available for collection at 9:30am. It does count as an attraction FASTPASS, so you cannot get a FASTPASS for any other attraction until the specified next available time.
Over at the Town Square Theater entrance, there are two lines for each of the meet and greets, a standby and FASTPASS. A cast member is located at the entrance to check FASTPASS times and to direct guests to the appropriate lines.
Head to the photos below for a look at the FASTPASS distribution area and a look at one of the tickets.
