In honor of our new Scaring is Caring T-Shirt, we spent a whole day in the parks finding/doing anything and everything related to Monsters, Inc.! I was honestly surprised at how much we were able to find.
We started off with the only Monsters, Inc. attraction at Disney World – Laugh Floor. I have a love-hate relationship with this attraction. For those of you who have never done it – it’s an interactive comedy show, hosted by none other than Mike Wazowski. He (and a few of his special guests) make jokes, and choose people from the audience. I’m not the type of person who like to be called out during things like this, so it always makes me a little nervous. I’ve only been chosen once, and while it was funny, I was terrified the whole time! I will say that the jokes are hilarious, and it always makes for a good laugh. It’s also a good AC break on a hot day and you can almost always count on a short wait time! Today was a peak day, and the wait was only 30 minutes, which is probably the highest that I have ever seen it.
After we rode the attraction, we decide to go on a merchandise hunt! There was a surprisingly large amount of merchandise available! We found the majority of it in the two shops in Tomorrowland, but the Emporium had several items, as well. Here is some of what we found:
After our merchandise hunt, we looked EVERYWHERE in Magic Kingdom for a Monster, Inc. snack, but we had no luck. We went to the Polynesian where they used to have a Mike Wazowski cake, but it has been replaced with a Stitch cake. Later, we went to the All Star Resorts where they used to have Mike cupcakes, but those had been replaced with Frozen cupcakes. So sad! Hopefully this is something that Disney will add in the future.
Meet & Greet
Hollywood Studios has a great set-up for a Mike and Sully Meet & Greet. You walk through the One Man’s Dream displays, and eventually come to an area called “Monsters, Inc. Experience” where you wait to meet these two characters. It’s nice that the wait is indoor, but it was pretty lengthy. We waited about an hour (with a posted wait of 35 minutes, that was never updated to more than 40 while we were in line) and got less than a minute of interaction with them. Photo Pass took about 5 pictures, and we were told to smile for some and then to pose like a monster. They turned out super cute, and Sully loved my shirt!
We had such a fun day full of all things Monsters, Inc.! What else would you like to see on the blog? Did we miss anything Monster, Inc.? Let us know!
