In advance of Monsters University opening June 21, guests to Disney’s Hollywood Studios ® can meet the two stars of the new Disney/Pixar movie Mike and Sulley in a special collegiate meet-and greet. See them before they worked on the Scare Floor as they roam the halls of “Monsters University” in this special “Monsters University” Student Union on the Backlot.

The entire meet-and-greet experience feels a little like parent’s weekend at your child’s college. And it’s just as exciting! From the moment you walk into the queue you are bombarded with all things college including banners and bulletins that say “Vote for Harold Horn for MU Student President,” “Fang Sharpening,” “Glee Club” and more. Visitors will also be treated to portraits of different sororities and fraternities, including Slugma Slugma Kappa (EEK), Oozma Kappa (OK) in which Mike and Sulley are a part of, Jaws Theta Chi (JOX) and the sorority Eta Hiss Hiss (HSS). There is also a Monsters University Campus Map and merchandise for “sale” at the campus store.

You’ll also be able to see portraits of some of the distinguished faculty of Monsters University beginning with Dean Hardscrabble. According to the Monsters University website, “Dean Hardscrabble is internationally known and widely regarded as the foremost authority on the subject of Scaring. For the past several decades, every hopeful MU Scarer has had to pass through her classroom before stepping foot on a Scare floor.” Other noteworthy faculty members include Dr. Tawny Van der Slime, Distinguished Professor and Fear Standards Chair, School of Scaring and Professor Knight, Tenured Professor of Fright, School of Scaring.

You’ll certainly be occupied as you wait for Mike and Sulley and when you finally do reach the two famous monsters you’ll see that while they appear to look the same as they did in “Monsters Inc” they are full of spirit with Monsters University attire. Sulley is wearing a collegiate “MU” blue and white jacket and Mike’s one eye is topped with an “MU” blue and white hat. The two happily pose, shake hands and even attempt to scare guests waiting to see them.

The Mike and Sulley meet-and-greet is all a part of Disney’s Limited Time Magic Monstrous Summer that will bring monstrous fun to the park all summer long. Besides the meet-and-greet you can scream your way into fun with the “Monsterail.” One of the iconic monorails has been redesigned and monsterized with images from the newest Disney film. You can even schedule a wake-up call with the voice of Mike Wazowski when staying at select Walt Disney World Resorts.
