BREAKING NEWS: Jiminy Cricket Makes An Appearance Above Pinocchio Village Haus
MickeyBlog is coming to you LIVE! from the Magic Kingdom today where we’ve been sharing details of all of Walt Disney World’s incredible Holiday festivities!
If there’s one thing we really love during our Disney visits, it’s a spontaneous character experience and we have a special one to share with you – and a rare one at that!
As we were walking past Pinocchio Village Haus in Fantasyland who did we see but…
Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio!
He was on hand to wave to guests from the second level balcony!
It’s always extra special when you spot a rare Disney character!
And Jiminy is of course extra special!
He did give us “When You Wish Upon A Star” after all!
He was looking ever the regal gentleman from his perch high atop this popular Fantasyland quick service spot adjacent to “Its a small world.”
The balcony was adorned in beautiful hues of green, purple and blue!
Jiminy’s hat and scarf were red and white striped!
And if you look closely you may even notice that he had a sprig of holly in his hat!
There’s no word yet on whether this will be a regular occurrence during the holiday season!
If you find yourself walking down that popular strip of Fantasyland be sure to stop and linger a while and you may just catch a glimpse!
This is just one of many new character encounters Disney is trying to incorporate into your theme park experience!
With social distancing in place at the theme parks, it is no longer possible to have the regular character meet and greets.
With this in mind, Disney is offering experiences like this as well as special character cavalcades.
These cavalcades are essentially mini parades that happen at various times throughout the day!
They typically feature a float or two and a handful of much-loved Disney friends.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check some of our other posts from today where we featured cavalcades that included Mickey, Santa, marching gingerbread and so much more!
Readers are also encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog throughout the Holiday Season where we’ll be coming to you LIVE from the theme parks each and every week!
