Description And Comments
The Toontown Hall of Fame is at the end of a small plaza between Mickey's and Minnie's houses. It offers one of the largest and most dependably available collection of characters in Walt Disney World. Just inside to the right are entrances to three queuing areas. signs over each suggest which characters you will meet. Two queuing areas are almost always dedicated to Disney's princesses (Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella, and others) and fairies (Tinker Bell and her posse).
Each category of characters occupies a greeting room where 15-20 guests are admitted at a time. They're allowed to stay 7-10 minutes, long enough for a photo, autograph, and hug with each character.
Visit the Toontown Hall of Fame: Princesses page for more info.
If your children want to visit both the fairies and the princesses, you'll have to queue up twice. Each line is long and slow-moving, and during busier hours you can lose a lot of time here. The Fairies line is typically 50-100% longer than the Princesses line.
All characters work in 25-minute shifts, with breaks on the hour and half-hour. Because characters change frequently during the day, it's possible to see quite an assortment if you keep recirculating. If the cast member can't tell you, walk over to the exit and ask departing guests which characters are on duty. Remember that there is some switching of characters on the hour and half hour.
A 30-something mother of two comments:
For parents with smaller children at the Magic Kingdom, take the train to Toontown as soon as [it] opens--my six-year-old and eight-year-old rode Goofy's Barnstormer roller coaster seven times without getting off. After others wanted on, they moved on to the Toontown Hall of Fame for autographs--No lines!!
On many days, during the first hour the park is open, a multitude of characters roam the Magic Kingdom Streets. It's just like the old days: spontaneous contact and no lines.
