Pete's Silly Sideshow is a character meet-and-greet area featured in the Storybook Circus section of the New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom park at Walt Disney World Resort. It opened in October of 2012.

Characters available

The area features classic Disney characters in the guises of traditional circus sideshow performers from around the world.

Characters are met in 2 different sections, the blue side features Goofy as "The Great Goofini" (a daredevil stunt pilot) and Donald Duck as "The Astounding Donaldo" (a snake-charmer from the Far East). The red side features Minnie Mouse as "Minnie Magnifique" (a poodle-trainer from France) and Daisy Duck as "Madame Daisy Fortuna" (a fortune-teller). In 2019, Pluto would take Minnie Mouse's spot and backdrop under the stage name of "Wonder-Pup Pluto".

Though the attraction is named after Pete, he does not physically appear within it beyond the marquee. Design sketches in an Imagineer's online portfolio suggest he was originally to have been an animatronic (with a skeleton recycled from the Timekeeper) at the entrance serving as a carnival barker inviting guests inside.[1]
