Happy National Pet Day Pluto!

In honor of both the start of the Year of the Dog and National Pet Day, I thought I'd focus this post on Mickey's beloved pal, Pluto.  Yes, Pluto and Goofy are both dogs, however Pluto is the more pet-like of the two.

You can meet Pluto in all 4 Walt Disney World Theme Parks.

Magic Kingdom
At Magic Kingdom, Pluto has his meet and greet right on Main Street U.S.A. in the Town Square.  The times of his meet and greet vary, but today he is meeting from 12:10PM to 2:35PM.  You can also see Pluto in the daily Festival of Fantasy parade.
Epcot
While many of the classic Disney characters (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy) meet at the Epcot Character Spot in Future World, Pluto actually meets in World Showcase.  He meets at the World Showcase Friendship Ambassador Gazebo which is located on the lagoon between the Mexico and Canada pavilions.  Again, his meet and greet times vary.  Today his is meeting from 11:30AM-2:30PM and again from 3:10PM -6:30PM so you have plenty of opportunities to meet this pup!
Disney's Hollywood Studios
Looking miserable running through Disney's Hollywood Studios during the Marathon (I have no pictures of the park lol)
At Disney's Hollywood Studios, Pluto meets all day (from 9:30AM-6:30PM currently) in Animation Courtyard.  For those that don't know where this is, its the path from Sunset Boulevard (where Rock N Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror are) as you make your way to Pixar Place (where Toy Story Mania is currently located).  Since Disney's Hollywood Studios is under so much construction right now, this location is subject to change.  Check your My Disney Experience App for the most updated information.
Disney's Animal Kingdom
Nicole and I in front of the Tree of Life
At Disney's Animal Kingdom, Pluto meets with Goofy (because they're both dogs, I guess) in Dinoland U.S.A.  He's there most of the day, currently meeting from 11:30AM-2:30PM and 2:40PM-5:30PM.
After the Jingle Jungle 5K in 2015
You can also meet Pluto at various character meals: Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort, O'Hana at Disney's Polynesian Resort (breakfast), Garden Grill (Epcot's Land pavilion) and Hollywood and Vine at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Where is your favorite place to meet Mickey's favorite pup?

Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios

After much anticipation, Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios is finally open!  The more information I read and pictures I see, the more excited I am (the opening day crowds, not so much).  Originally, I was not super excited about this land coming to Hollywood Studios (though I know that the park needed something for the younger kids).  However, now that it's finally completed, I can't wait to go!
Some of the favorite things we love about Pixar Place are still going to be present. 
Ever interacted with these guys? They are so much fun! Fan favorite Toy Story Mania is still around so you can still play and try to beat your record.  I still haven't figured out how to beat Nicole.  I'm always leading until the final round and then I never win. It's maddening :) Plus there are two new attractions to enjoy: Slinky Dog Dash & Alien Swirling Saucers. I have to admit, I wasn't too excited for either attraction and Nicole and I discussed skipping them …

Storybook Character Dining to Debut at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

I'm so excited about today's update!  Character dining is coming to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This winter, Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen will welcome guests to dine with them at Artist Point. 
Information is limited at this time, but we do know that it will be a prix fixe menu with shared appetizers, a delicious entree and dessert.  We're still eagerly waiting for information on the opening date, menus, and how many dining plan credits this experience will require.  However, I immediately thought of my fellow Dopeys when this information was released.  How great would this be as a celebration meal after completing the Dopey Challenge?
What do you think? Are you excited for this option?
