In 2012 the Walt Disney World Resort saw Storybook Circus open in the Magic Kingdom. With this new circus-themed area came something that always comes with circuses… clowns! The Storybook Circus Giggle Gang were those clowns that supplied guests with a lot of laughs! The Giggle Gang included Chuckles Buffoon McMonkeyshine III and his protégés, Whinny Horselaugh and Snort. They were joined by the Silly Saxtet, a unique and humorous ensemble with Wowzer the clown adding to the musical hilarity.
The first time we saw the Giggle Gang was completely by accident. Within seconds though, we were hooked. Their quirky humor was infectious. While some clowns make you feel uncomfortable, these clowns were heartwarming and charming. They brought an innocence to their performance that brought us back multiple times to see their performance. While we expected to enjoy the new offerings that came with New Fantasyland, we never imagined a highlight would be a group of clowns!
