Ooh, have you been to Monster's Inc Laugh Floor in MK? It's so funny! Mike W. is the emcee in a comedy show that always makes us laugh. For Minnie, the Disney Junior show in DHS is fun for the younger crowds with characters from the Disney Jr channel, including Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She's also in some character dinings, like Chef Mickey's (she was our daughter's favorite there!) and of course many other places throughout the parks. Have a great trip!

It's been amazing!

Hollywood Studios is the place to do meet and greet with Monsters characters. I think that they also appear in the MK parade where they dance through the street. ANd they are also in the Hollywood Studios parade.

The Monsters Laugh Floor in MK is fun. You can text in a joke and they might read yours during the show so have some funny jokes in mind for that. Also, sometimes they pick a person from the audience to show up on the big screen during the show. Put your daughters hair in pig tails and she might get picked to be "Boo" on the screen.

As for Minnie, you can do meet and greets w/ her in Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. She is also at several character meals like Chef Mickeys, Ohana [breakfast only], & the Cape May Buffet. Hollywood Studios has a cute Disney Jr show and I am pretty sure she is in it. Also, she is in the show they do at the front of Cinderellas castle at the Magic Kingdom.

Also you can look online for links fora free call from a Disney character.

If you want to really play up the character thing....create a letter to send to her from Minnie and her other favorite characters inviting her to come meet them at WDW....

Hope this helps
