Hello Maria! Your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is fast approaching - how excited you all must be! I have good news for you and your little guy - although Mickey Mouse is a very popular fellow around Walt Disney World, he manages to make himself available for pictures and autographs with all of his friends on a daily basis. He also has the amazing ability to "coincide" his visits to each park on the same day your son will be there! At Magic Kingdom you will find him in Town Square Theatre, at Epcot you will find him at Innoventions, at Disney's Animal Kingdom he will be greeting his fans, along with Minnie Mouse, at the Adventurers Outpost, and finally, at Disney's Hollywood Studios he will be at the Magic of Disney Animation. When you arrive at each park, be sure to pick up a Times Guide for exact locations and times of his appearances.
Since your son is also a Jake and the Neverland Pirates fan, you may want to book a character breakfast or lunch at Hollywood & Vine Restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Along with Jake, there will also be June from Little Einsteins, Handy Manny and Special Agent Oso. These meals are kid-friendly, and served buffet style. If you'd rather not book a meal, Jake also appears daily for special picture and autograph sessions at Animation Courtyard - again, you will want to check your Times Guide.
Maria, if you download the free app for smartphones, My Disney Experience, you can access all of the character meet-and-greet information, along with park hours, attraction wait times, park maps, restaurant information and reservations, etc. These will all be right at your finger tips, allowing you to make plans on-the-spot ,and I think you will find it really handy for your trip! Please let me know if you have any other questions before your upcoming vacation at Walt Disney World - I would be more than happy to answer them for you. Have a magical day Maria!
