Captain Hook and Mr. Smee Character Meet and Greet:

February 4-10, Captain Hook and his loyal sidekick Mr. Smee will come ashore to meet you in Fantasyland intermittently from 9 a.m. – 6:15 p.m. Tick tock: Be sure to meet this duo before they head back to the Jolly Roger!

Peter Pan PhotoPass Opportunities:

Peter Pan’s sneaky shadow is notoriously difficult to find, but the PhotoPass photographer next to the Captain Hook and Mr. Smee Character Experience is exceptionally skilled at locating it with the help of a special Magic Shot! Stop by and you just might find it in your photo.

Looking for some Magic Shots with a little extra pixie dust? Visit the photographer on the bridge next to Sleepy Hollow Refreshments to bring out your inner fairy, or have the most famous fairy of them all appear in your photo when you visit a photographer on Main Street, U.S.A.

If all of these photo opportunities have you ready to fly off to Never Land, stop by Partners Statue in front of Cinderella Castle where a photographer will have a prop you can include in your photos.

I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
