    When do you anticipate the Princess activities to reopen like dining at Cinderella’s Castle, character greetings, and the hair boutique?

    Hello, Jessica, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question.

    As COVID-19 guidelines are eased, Walt Disney World Resort is gradually bringing back more beloved park experiences. In mid-June, the Disney Parks Blog announced Fireworks Spectaculars Are Back at Disney Parks This Summer. "A Disney tradition since 1957, fireworks shows are what Walt Disney called the perfect 'kiss goodnight' at the close of a magical day, and this summer the skies above Disney theme parks will sparkle with color once more."

    Cinderella's Royal Table is open for dining, however, Character Dining is currently not available at this location. Guests wishing to dine inside Cinderella Castle during this one-of-a-kind Fairytale Dining experience can make dining reservations online up to 60 days in advance. I always make advanced dining reservations when my family visits Walt Disney World Resort, and highly recommend them for this location. 

    While magical entertainment still awaits you at Walt Disney World, some experiences—like Character Greetings and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique—are temporarily unavailable in order to accommodate physical distancing. You can learn all about updated experiences at Walt Disney World on disneyworld.com. Guests can join some of your favorite Disney friends—including Mickey Mouse and Disney Princesses—as they set out on a new adventure down the parade route at Magic Kingdom.

    There has not been an announcement yet about the return of the magical experiences that are temporarily unavailable. I would recommend keeping an eye on disneyworld.com and the Disney Parks Blog for any updates. You can also follow Disney's social media accounts for official announcements. For a list of current Character Experiences, visit the Entertainment page on disneyworld.com.

    Jessica, please visit planDisney again if we can help you with any other questions about planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Have a magical day!
