Pete’s Silly Sideshow opened with Storybook Circus in October of 2012. There are two sides of the area, one red and one blue. On the red side, guests can meet Minnie Magnifique and Daisy Fortuna. In 2019, Pluto could be found in Daisy’s spot under the name of Wonder-Pup Pluto. The blue side has The Great Goofini and The Astounding Donaldo. Although the area is named for Pete, he actually does not meet with guests there. The location is a great place to meet with some favorite Disney characters in costumes that they don’t wear anywhere else.
